Do you ever read the official statement of an organization and think, "Holy crap - I can't believe they actually said that out loud?"
Because that's how I felt when I read the NAACP's reaction to Tim Scott's appointment to the Senate.
Keep in mind, this appointment will make Tim Scott the ONLY BLACK US SENATOR until at least 2014. And that the acronym NAACP stands for National Association for the ADVANCEMENT of Colored People. I don't know about you all, but being appointed as a Senator seems like a fairly decent example of advancement. Apparently, however, that organization's name needs to be revised to NAACPWALRBP (National Association for the Advancement of Colored People Who Are Liberal Race Baiting Parasites.)
Hilary Shelton, senior vice president for advocacy and policy at the NAACP, isn't particularly pleased with Nikki Haley's choice to replace Sen. DeMint. Shelton admitted that it was "important that we have more integration in the US Senate" and that it was "good to see that diversity" but said that the NAACP platform calls for an expansive role for federal government spending in black communities. Shelton believes Tim Scott would "likely work against that agenda" instead favoring the "small government posture of Reagan and his Sec'y of Education, William Bennett."
