So Nikki Haley has picked Tim Scott to replace DeMint as Senator. This has made a lot of people note how rare black Senators still are. I think it’s pretty easy to see the reason for that, though. One, there aren’t many black Republicans. Two, the prominent black politicians on the Democrat’s side tend to be completely unelectable outside of a few districts. They run on racial appeals in federally mandated majority-minority districts, and this of course produces huge idiots (it’s like what kind of people would we expect to be elected if there were mandated KKK district). Really, for the sake of our country we need to put more shame on the racism in the Democratic Party.
Anyway, Scott seems to be universally loved pick. He grew up poor in a single parent home and made something of himself (with the help of Chick-fil-A). But since he’ll now be a U.S. Senator, I’m going to assume he’s an idiot until proven otherwise.
