Required Reading

Frank Rich on how all this anger is the sound of the GOP losing the majority in the silent majority.
The conjunction of a black president and a female speaker of the House — topped off by a wise Latina on the Supreme Court and a powerful gay Congressional committee chairman — would sow fears of disenfranchisement among a dwindling and threatened minority in the country no matter what policies were in play.

Wow... republicans being called racist. Original. I again didn't hear about the violence that greated us at the 2008 Republican convention with sandbags being dropped off overpasses and senior citizen delegates being pushed around. Frank Rich should have stuck to reviewing plays, although he liked cats, so I'm not sure what to say about him.

I guess you could have said the same when Republicans put a black man on the Supreme Court, made a black man and then black woman secretaries of state and a Latino Attorney General. Oh, but they don't count because you don't agree with them.

Please don't quote Rich Kaz, you're better than that.
