So Palin, Steele, Jindal weren't affirmative action picks?

For months now GOP leaders have been hyperventilating about the need to appeal to women and minorities, in part by putting forward laughably unqualified airheads like Palin and Steele forward as the next generation of leaders.

But then Obama finds a completely qualified Latina, and that's affirmative action run amuck, right?

And that's just the last few months -- keep going back and you'll read the touching life stories of Clarence Thomas, Harriet Miers, Alberto Gonzalez, all of whom were appallingly unfit for the posts for which they were nominated....

The few times Republicans do hire competent women and minorities, they ignore and humiliate them -- Christine Whitman, Condi Rice, Colin Powell...Too uppity.
