“The RNC sent out a flyer to some of its members talking about potential 2016 presidential candidates. Do you know what they had in common? … ,” he said. “They were all white.” Where was Allen West. Where was Dr. Ben Carson. And have they ruled out the possibility that I might consider another run?”
Uh Oh! Our pal Herman here is starting to get the clue — that African Americans really are useful props for the GOP, but genuine inclusion is gonna be completely against their religion. Besides, Herman should know that he and several of his running mates are the reason why the RNC is looking to control their nominating and convention process so closely that they’ll damn near hand pick the next candidate. A convention in June? Reince Preibus is looking to get the clown show done early and the clowns on serious lockdown before the real show begins the next time. And all you have to do is look at what they did to Michael Steele after a successful run to know that they do not want functional black members — just the ones who will be happy to have Republican show up on their chyron and tell the world that minimum wage workers don’t really want more money with a straight face.
And I suspect Herman is pissed he isn’t getting his share of the wingnut welfare, too.
