8 down, 1 to go

Posted in Politics at 2:08 pm by Nova Newcomer

AlterNet linked to an interesting blog post about the Republican showing at the NAACP’s recent candidate forum. While all Democratic candidates for President managed to attend their forum, only Tom Tancredo, an outspoken anti-immigrant candidate, showed up for the Republican forum. As they often say, a picture’s worth a thousand words.

Now, the NAACP is certainly not lacking a need for a boost in image themselves, so not only is it embarrassing to the Republican party, but should probably send a message to the NAACP that they may have some work to do as well. However, the oldest and arguably most influential civil rights organization deserves more respect than the leading Republican candidates could muster. I say, “Shame on them!” or as the picture loudly proclaims, “8 down, 1 to go.”

P.S. Props, by the way, to the NAACP event manager who shrewdly kept the empty podiums with each candidates’ name placards in clear view as Candidate Tancredo stood on stage by himself.

    Maybe if I had done a comeback performance to open the event, the rest would have come. It would have been great y’all.
