The Serpent and the Rainbow (of Diversity)

by David Weigel

Ana, I notice that the DSCC's graphic is missing one of the GOP's strongest Senate challengers - Maryland Lt. Gov. Michael Steele. Of course, Steele is black (he's meeting with Russell Simmons this week - alright stereotypes!) After the Weekly Standard caught flak for portraying Al Sharpton as a chauffeur, I bet the Democrats didn't want to risk the avalanche of negative press for calling a black dude a snake.
