The shamefully cold-blooded marriage between progressivism and race.

She’s a progressive columnist at a progressive paper where the color of your skin is the Ultimate Measure. And so, true to form, she race pimped. Just like Woodrow Wilson, Josephus Daniels, Theodore Bilbo, J. William Fulbright, George Wallace, Howell Raines, Al Sharpton, Van Jones, Sonia Sotomayor, and progressives from decades past to this very moment.
One cannot get inside the heads of these people. But for whatever reason — a fear of real equality, cynical politics, personal hatreds, a sense of plantation mentality that jumps to divide people of color into the House Negro/Field Negro dichotomy (which may explain the hatred for Clarence Thomas and love for Barack Obama, the distaste for Miguel Estrada and love for Sonia Sotomayor) — are simply unable to view the world in a colorblind fashion. They simply cannot see others existing in a world as Martin Luther King correctly pegged the future where America needs to be — a place where people are judged by “the content of their character” as opposed to their skin color.
Tragically, a colorblind society is not on the progressive policy to-do list. Not now, not 100 years ago, and not a 100 years from now.

It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
