It’s just another great GOP Moment in Black History:

So — desperate and grasping at straws — a stunned GOP confuses the nation by selecting the Brown Front Man Martinez as RNC Chairman and then electing Trent Lott as Minority . It shouldn’t be surprising really. In a way, the puzzling choice between Michael Steele and Mel Martinez for RNC Chair makes more sense now.

It’s like the other shoe has dropped. They thought we would be dazzled by their tolerance and generosity at elevating a pro-amnesty, soft on the brown invasion Hispanic. They thought it would immunize them from criticism from boosting Trent “Dixiecrat” Lott back as a prominent voice. They thought maybe we’d all forgotten about Lott said this, chuckling indulgently:

“When Strom Thurmond ran for president, we voted for him. We’re proud of it. And if the rest of the country had followed our lead, we wouldn’t have had all these problems over all these years, either.”

This about the man who said famously while running for President:

“All the laws of Washington and all the bayonets of the Army cannot force the Negro into our homes, our schools, our churches.” (Source: CNN)

Umm, let me get this straight. So Lott was nostalgic for the days when it was ok to say that kind of thing loudly and publicly into a microphone. Right. Oh I Wish I Was In Dixie, Hurrah, Hurrah!!!

They were wrong. So very wrong. Check out Atrios, MyDD’s Chris Bowers and AsiansVote for some more thoughts on not forgetting. And here I was worried that Stephen Colbert wasn’t going to have enough material from those GOP goobers to stay funny. I ain’t worried no more!

What’s interesting is that these choices baffle the left but the Republicans are also sickening their own base. Michelle Malkin, that bat-sh*t crazy racist ho, rounds up some Republican opinion on the leadership moves and let’s just say there’s a lack of confidence out there in wingnut land. She hates not because he is racist, but because his racist image makes the “Vacant Lott” vulnerable.

There is only one cause, one animating spirit that Trent Lott is committed to: not the South, not the segregationist past, but himself and his future in high office. And now, to save his hide, Lott will shake his pompoms and turn somersaults to please whomever (Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., the Rev. Al Sharpton) can help him stay in power.

He’s weak! Who, who will stand up to those now unleashed, powerful darkies and nigger-lovers, I mean Democrats, on the Hill? Certainly Not Lott.

Oh watch out, kidlets. This is going to be an extra-fun 110th Congress coming up. Just you wait for the hijinks to ensue!
