GOP Senators Shocked: Judge Brown is Black
by Scott Ott

(2005-06-09) — Republican Senators, who yesterday confirmed President Bush’s appointment of Judge Janice Rogers Brown to the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, today expressed shock at learning that the California Supreme Court justice is black.

The revelation comes in same week that Democrat party Chairman Dr. Howard Dean released his research showing that Republicans, and especially their leaders, ‘all look the same’ because they’re ‘white Christians’.

‘I’m concerned about how this is going to play with the white base,’ said an unnamed Republican Senator upon learning of Judge Brown’s non-mainstream race. ‘I feel betrayed by President Bush, who has now managed to sneak a number of non-whites, not to mention women, into high-ranking government positions. The White House tricked us into focusing on the accomplishments of nominees, distracting us from the key genetic and theological markers that Dr. Dean has identified as determining factors of Republicanism.’

The source claimed that Republican Senators were unaware of the racial and ethnic status of Cabinet members including Attorney General Alberto Gonzales, Commerce Secretary Carlos Gutierez, Labor Secretary Elaine Chao, Transportation Secretary Norman Mineta, HUD Secretary Alphonso Jackson and Secretaries of State Colin Powell and Condoleezza Rice.

‘Now that we’ve seen the photos,’ the anonymous source added, ‘it seems that not even half of the Bush Cabinet members are white males, and some of those may not even be Christians. The president has secretly assembled a virtual rainbow coalition right under our noses.'” — Scott Ott / ScrappleFace

Remember our prediction, Howard Dean will not last as DNC Chairman till Christmas. He has “foot in mouth” disease of biblical proportions. The Democrate vs. Democrate infighting has already begun in the mass media. Sen Clinton, meanwhile sits on the sidelines biding her time staying out of the fray and listening to advice from Bill on portraying a more moderate image. Hmmm… that must be the strategy! Howard gives Hillary a benchmark to highlight the “moderate” image she hopes to project. One can only wonder as to what the DNC leadership would see in Howard Dean — other than the fact that he was able to raise more money than his competitors during the Democratic primaries. It sure isn’t his “inclusiveness” or his moderate points of view!
