More On The White Christian - er, Republican Party

Ruben Navarrette, Jr., has a blistering editorial in the Seattle Times calling the Democrats to task for their continual use of minorities as a special interest group tied to liberal politics:
...each time Bush or another prominent Republican tries to make minorities feel at home in the GOP, Democrats worry that the hold that they have on these groups may weaken and they won't be able to do much about it.
Janice Rogers Brown, Condi, Albert Gonzales, Clarence Thomas - what do all these figures have in common? In the words of Navarrette:
I don't see why liberals won't say what they really mean. It's obvious that what concerns them is not that these nominees aren't real minorities, but rather that they aren't their kind of minority. You know, the kind that asks for permission before they speak and makes sure that what they say falls in line with the views of their liberal benefactors.
