Guess what! Michael Steele's efforts to recruit more minority leaders into the Republican party are starting to bear fruit. And all it took was a couple dudes giving each other rings…
The president of the Iowa-Nebraska chapter of the NAACP has endorsed anti-gay Republican gubernatorial hopeful Bob Vander Plaats…
"I know that Bob Vander Plaats is not afraid to stand up for what is right," Rev. Keith A. Ratliff Sr. said. "That takes courage."
"He's talked about the importance of defending the institution of marriage… That takes backbone and determination. That's what I want in my governor — and that's why I'm standing here today to show my support for him," he added.
Now, after a century of tireless effort, it sure is heartening to see a leader of the NAACP — which, according to its website, has a long and proud history as "a champion of social justice" — taking such a bold stand in favor of the oppressed majority, forging a stronger status quo, and fighting back against the tyranny of the downtrodden.
