Republicans recruit minority candidates with just one tiny problem



The NYTimes was in the VERY RARE position of praising Republicans. Why? Because they have recruited minority candidates!

As Republicans took control of an unprecedented 69 of 99 statehouse chambers in the midterm elections, they did not rely solely on a bench of older white men. Key races hinged on the strategic recruitment of women and minorities, many of them first-time candidates who are now learning the ropes and joining the pool of prospects for higher office.

They include Jill Upson, the first black Republican woman elected to the West Virginia House; Victoria Seaman, the first Latina Republican elected to the Nevada Assembly; Beth Martinez Humenik, whose win gave Republicans a one-seat edge in the Colorado Senate; and Young Kim, a Korean-American woman who was elected to the California Assembly, helping to break the Democratic supermajority in the State Legislature.

“This is not just rhetoric — we spent over $6 million to identify new women and new candidates of diversity and bring them in,” said Matt Walter, the executive director of the Republican State Leadership Committee. “Most of these chambers were flipped because there was a woman or a person of diverse ethnicity in a key targeted seat.”

The wins, by candidates carefully chosen to challenge the traditional notion of the Democratic base, bode well for Republicans in future elections. They had a net gain of 59 women in state legislatures; Democrats lost 63 women. Republicans added 10 Latinos; Democrats lost five. Republicans reported 17 newly elected blacks; a comparable figure for Democrats was not available. In 2008, only about 31 percent of women in state legislatures were Republicans; in 2015, that figure will rise by eight percentage points

I LOVE how the NYTimes keeps track of all racial and sexual statistics! We need to know exactly how each group is doing!!!!

The one very tiny tiny problem, expressed at one tiny sentence at the very bottom of the article:

It is not clear yet where the new Republican elected officials fall on the ideological spectrum. Several who were interviewed for this article, including Ms. Barnes, said they were focused on economic issues like job creation

Oh. In other words, we have no idea where they stand on the ISSUES (other than job creation--good thing we didn't back candidates who were against that!).

You see, this is the problem of seeking out candidates just because they are of a certain race or gender. Why not seek out the best candidate as defined by his or her position on the ISSUES, and let race/sex/whatever work itself out naturally, rather than picking candidates like you're merely filling a box of crayola crayons?

US will use psychologists to give aid to Syrian Rebels


style="padding-left: 30px;">The U.S. military will subject Syrian rebels taking part in a new training program to psychological evaluations, biometrics checks and stress tests under a screening plan that goes well beyond the steps the United States normally takes to vet foreign soldiers, a sign of the risks the Obama administration faces as it expands support for armed groups in Syria.

Isn't it progressive of the Empire to have its first African-American Stormtrooper?


The Galactic Empire, like the Democratic Party, has always been about repression, but it has also been about progressiveness. From the solar panels on the first death star to the reycling bins in every AT-AT, the Empire has been a strong voice for authoritarian progressivism. And now it seems they have finally made the stormtroopers into a more racially diverse body.
