White-on-Black, Black-on-Black

It doesn't seem to matter: persecution of black Republicans continues. I had heard that my friend Ted Hayes was getting kicked off the land he's been using as a village for the homeless downtown, but I hadn't realized that it was because of his association with the Party of Lincoln until I went to Goldstein's site today.

Bigotry against Republicans is a tragedy in the world today. And I'm dead serious: I had to take the Bush bumper sticker off my car. Not because of the honking and getting flipped off in traffic; I can certainly handle that. The problem was, it was costing me jobs in "tolerant" Los Angeles.

On my system your masthead runs off the right side of the screen and sometimes the right text margin goes slightly "under" the ad on the right. Just thought I would let you know.

Yes, the Dems and libs call Colin Powell, Condi Rice and other black Republicans, OREO COOKIES, as well as tokens. Pretty lame, they can't bring down on issues, so they resort to namecalling. Anyway, here is an uplifting JOYFUL column for the New Year. It is excerpts. You can read the entire column :
The Hillary-Condi avalanche By Salena Zito TRIBUNE-REVIEW Sunday, January 1, 2006

Curb your enthusiasm and fasten your seat belts; today marks the first day of Hillary Clinton's 2008 presidential bid.
This is a moment of glee in many camps. Others are observing a moment of silence with a primal scream quickly to follow.

Yes, let the mockery begin: The Clintons are back and open for business. And according to Dick Morris, the Clintons' one-time confidant, the only person who can stop Hillary is Condoleezza Rice.

If you look just at the demographic argument for Condi's candidacy, Morris' theory is flawless. ... -- the real issue is swing suburban women and minorities.

....."I think that the only way to stop Hillary from winning is by running someone that will appeal to women and take that black vote away from her."

That someone would be Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, a woman who probably has the best personal story to tell of any modern political figure since Ronald Reagan.

....Morris says. "Condi is a woman that has made it on her own, whose accomplishments are hers." Hold that up to Hillary, whose "accomplishments are entirely derivative of her husband's," making even the National Organization of I-don't-know-what-kind-of-Women wince.

The potential exists that America will have in front of it two models of feminine advancement -- one dependent on a husband, the other independent. Morris may be on to something when he says "the Condi Rice model will be much more attractive to women."

But will Condi run? Her answer is consistently "No," which of course means nothing. Nobody who is ever running for president is running for president. Well, except maybe for John Kerry.

...... When duty calls, Rice always has responded by serving her country.

Kent Gates, a GOP political strategist, lays it out this way: "If the scenario exists where there needs to be an alternative -- and she becomes the clear alternative, if the potential candidates and the assumed nominee is not acceptable -- Condi would be hard-pressed to say no."

......We all know who Hillary is -- a woman who fundamentally views government as the answer to what ails us. Although you will see her husband and former Cabinet members pointing to her as instrumental in setting the policy of the Clinton economic ascendancy, everyone would be wise to remember Hillarycare, her Alamo.

As for Condi, we'll just have to wait and see.
But it is compelling that, at the grass-roots level, Condi is spared many of the negatives that the Bush administration gets. .... Condi has consistently risen in early Republican polls.

Urban legend points to 1992 as the "Year of the Woman" in American politics. Yet when you think of a Condi-Hillary match-up, 1992 looks like a snowball compared to the avalanche that the presidential race will be, beginning today.

Here is good news about black leadership, on January 16th (the day to honor Martin Luther King), the first woman elected as president of an African nation will be sworn into office. World history will be united with US history on this day, with First Lady Laura Bush and Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice leading our nation's delegation. Madam Rice remarks, "this is an important moment in the history of Africa." You might remember that president-elect Johnson-Sirleaf came to Washington DC last month and met with Secretary Rice. The legacy of this republic (founded 1821) by freed Amerian slaves is one point to celebrate on Martin Luther King's birthday. On that same day, in Iowa, a citizens group of activists (americansforrice.com) will be interacting with over 2,000 Republicans from Des Moines to build support for Condoleezza Rice to run for president in 2008. Building a network to support this wonderful woman has already been achieved over the past a year, and it can only grow more each month as Secretary Rice continues to do her work on international affairs and foreign policy for the United States. Go, Condi, go go go in 2008. She can win the White House against any Democrat, male or female.

About Joy W. McCann: I've been interviewed for Le Monde and mentioned on Fox News. I once did a segment for CNN on "Women and Guns," and this blog is periodically featured on the New York Times' blog list. My writing here has been quoted in California Lawyer. I've appeared on The Glenn and Helen Show. Oh—and Tammy Bruce once bought me breakfast.
My writing has appeared in
The Noise, Handguns, Sports Afield, The American Spectator, and (it's a long story) L.A. Parent. This is my main blog, though I'm also an alumnus of Dean's World, and I help out on the weekends at Right Wing News.
My political philosophy is quite simple: I'm a classical liberal. In our Orwellian times, that makes me a conservative, though one of a decidedly libertarian bent.
