Michael Steele: Getting Thomased

Just as conservative Supreme Court candidates risk being Borked, black conservative candidates get Thomased -- that is, assaulted on account of their race instead of debated on account of their views.

Project 21 is on the case of reaction to verbal and physical attacks on Maryland's Lt. Governor Michael Steele, who is black and conservative, and who apparently believes that the Emancipation Proclamation applied to minds as well as bodies.
