Beware of Republicans getting on the "ethnicity" bandwagon

I even saw a Washington Post article crowing about "ethnic" Republicans being "serious leadership" for the future. They were naming Jindal of Louisiana, Rubio of Florida, etc etc. Yes, we elected a president with a Kenyan name. Does that mean any Republican with an ethnic name is automatically a rising star? Gimme a break!

I don't know what has gotten into the Post's editorial board, but ethnicity does NOT make one candidate better. It may make them more marketable in some areas, but that's about it. Don't their politics or their intellect matter any more?

Think about it: who would make a better president, someone with the name "Marco Rubio" or someone with the name "Howard Dean?"

1. Notice they need a pass, or token to get through

the fact they are misanthropic to " most " people, ethnicity aside .

2. All you have to do is push them on key issues: affirmative action, social programs, etc.
