It appears that the number of Black Republicans (a phenomenon I never understood, because Republicans are against equal rights for everyone except white men) has decreased somewhat.

I always thought that Black Republicans were some of the saddest people on earth, until I learned about the Log Cabin Republicans, gays and lesbians who supported a party whose platform specifically denies them equal rights.

Sigh…

So, I am cheered by this news, and the fact that Sarah Palin will soon shoot herself in her redneck foot, and retire from the limelight.
