    Republicans have put now 4 blacks in the Senate, the democrats only 3 (well technically 2.5). Who is the party of inclusion?

    elected?

    *edit nvm...

    Four republican senators...

    One was appointed. Two were elected in Mississippi by the Mississippi State Senate during the reconstruction era in the late 1800's where southerners were under strict electoral confines put on them from the north and only one was elected by popular vote.

    Nice try there Fisher. But appointing an African American then claiming a high road of inclusivity... that is laughable.

    Good on him and Haley as well. Let's hope he serves his constituents well.

    "That whirring sound is Strom Thurmond spinning in his grave."

    Actually it sounds more like Bill Clinton's hero, James William Fulbright. Try again.

    Who will the blacks vote for, the Republicans or the Democrats?

    Please, share with us the grounds for impeachment of Obama based on the debt ceiling debate that you have found.
