The GOP keeps trying to get them some of that minority mojo that Obama clearly coasted to victory on twice. I would try to talk them out of this game on the grounds that a loony bird like Alan Keyes or E.W. Jackson just insults minorities and offends the faithful, but that outcome does not bother me much. Enjoy losing another winnable race. Morons.
