UPDATE: Please read this view from the left (especially the comments) and see that we, those who seek to end the silly racial divisions and create a society where race means much less than it does today, also have enemies on the left. In some ways, I think that they may even be stronger than the ones I wrote of in this article. The old men who struggled to save segregation are dying and even their children are getting old. As for the left, our children in high school but especially college are being brainwashed into the bizarre beliefs of these racial huckesters. As much I dispise blind bigotry, I am much more fearful of a man who, with eyes wide open, attempts to engenieer a society where the elite decides the winners and the losers, dividing us into more and more nonsensical categories.
Please do not get the wrong idea, I supported Miss Taylor for the post and voted for her, but I must question again: why?
Of all of the Republicans to win, why was she the one? It has been noted that Betty Montgomery was one of the highest vote getters in history, yet she lost? (Yeaaaa!!!!!!!!)
I realize that Rep. Sykes was surrounded by a little scandal, but so was Marc Dann (he makes Taft look like a child when it comes to Pay-to-Play).
When Paul over at Newshound suggested that one of the reasons that Ken Blackwell would not win election was because of the color of his skin, I scoffed. I do not mean to say that that was the reason that he lost, it was not. In fact, I believe that if he ran as I advised him, he might have won. I am not a Democrat and I am not going to run around making excuses.
I have no proof of the reason why Mrs. Sykes lost and there may have been factors that I am unaware of, but, since we are so close to the season of good will toward men, it seems like something we might like to ponder.
