Dave Weigel Wins! First Journo to Hit CPAC on Race
Well, shoot… When I pulled Toure's name in the office pool to see who would be the first lefty to race-bait CPAC, it seemed like a sure winner.
In Toure's defense, though, his MSNBC show doesn’t air until the afternoon, which gives Slate's Dave Weigel an edge; an edge this fierce GOP antagonist took full advantage of on CPAC's opening day … at 9:34 am!
Congrats, Dave. Quite the work ethic:
One of the first speeches at CPAC came from former Rep. Allen West, a black conservative who delighted—and delights—in telling liberals they patronize and misunderstand blacks. "I know from personal experience," he said, that nothing on earth scares the left like a black American who can "think independently."
Behind West: A seven-panel display, paying tribute to decades of conservatism and conservative heroes. Strangely missing from the display: Any black conservatives. … That's clip art of a smiling black guy talking to an Asian woman.
Clip-arting minorities. We are so busted.
