    It would be really cool if you would stay on the topic of Mia Love.

    You honestly believe that the election of one black woman to the U.S. House is going to change African American perceptions of the Republican Party. After all, this is a party that actively courted the 'negrophobe' vote (in the immortal words of Republican strategist Lee Atwater) and continues to do so.

    It's amazing how much Archie Bunker resembles Rush Limbaugh, though. I dunno, is life imitating art or is art imitating life?

    There are a lot of trolling posts in this thread too from a few posters, some I see myself, others I see quoted. It's obnoxious. It would be nice if people appreciate this fresh young face in a Congress where fresh young faces are badly needed.
    Unfortunately, I have become too cynical to believe that Washington won't corrupt any new face on either side of the aisle.

    1970 Wiggen? Seriously? That's what you post to diminish Mia Love's election?

    No, it does not "continue to do so". Blacks are as free as anyone else to vote for Republicans or be Republicans. There are and have been black Republicans. She isn't the first.

    That's my concern too (posted about it earlier). I don't really believe Washington is the way it was portrayed in Legally Blonde 2, and a fresh face and mind can blow into town and fight corruption and influence and the power of the big parties. I hope she's different, but time will tell.

    Probably not going to change many peceptions. However, I'm fairly certain the Presidents threatened immigration policy is going to change African American perceptions of the Democrat Party.

    The lobbyists control the country now. They even write the legislation.

    It is noteworthy because she is in Utah. The same thing goes for South Carolina.
