It's Not Just Bush: The Republican Candidates for President Don't Care About Black People Either
U.S. Rep. Tom Tancredo, R-Col., was the sole Republican candidate to address yesterday's NAACP GOP Presidential Candidate Forum, although all nine GOP candidates were invited. Tancredo looks a bit lost and forlorn, like a child who has lost track of his Daddy's hand. Look at him, surrounded by unoccupied lecterns, each one as bald as an admonitory finger, each one with a placard declaring the name of the GOP candidate who would have stood behind it had he only cared enough to show up to address a significant constituency of the citizens he would presume to lead.
