    Michael Steele becomes first black RNC chairman

    I really wish we could do news w/out labeling people by the color of their skin. *sigh*


    WASHINGTON Michael Steele was elected Republican National Committee chairman on Friday, defeating the incumbent party chief and three other challengers over six rounds of voting to become the first black to lead the GOP. The former Maryland lieutenant governor takes over a beleaguered GOP as Republicans seek to rebound from back-to-back defeats in national elections that gave Democrats control of Congress and the White House.

    "As a little boy growing up in this town, this is awesome," said Steele, the most moderate candidate in the field and considered an outsider because he's not a committee member.

    In a brief acceptance speech, the new GOP chairman struck a tone of inclusiveness.

    BTW, I couldn't find an online news source other than FOX that wasn't a blog. Guess it's not newsworthy for the unbiased media.

    Good going Republicans, it is a good start. But then again it was between him, and a guy that use to belong to a whites only country club......It even made the news over here, along with the fact that there were a grand total of 4 black people there and zero black Republican congressmen.

    Thank goodness Obama knocked down all the racial barriers.

    Or it could be cause he's black. But I'll let Republicans play hypocrites.

    Everybody needs their token minority I guess. Colin Powell wasn't black looking enough.

    Condi Rice? Collin Powell? Alberto Gonzalez? Elain Chao? Alphonso Jackson? Carlos Guttierez?

    But go ahead, Dems, keep up the lying. Republicans have a far better track record of putting minorities in key cabinet positions than Democrats.

    Yeah, we have our own personal afirmative action within the party. We added it just to kiss the ass of 13% of the population. Getting the best person for the job during a critical time never entered anyone's mind.
