The Scrapbook did not expect that the New York Times would express much joy at the appointment of Rep. Tim Scott of South Carolina to the Senate seat vacated by Jim DeMint. Mr. DeMint is a conservative Republican, Mr. Scott is a conservative Republican, and the governor who anointed Scott, Nikki Haley, is a conservative Republican, too.
And the truth be told, The Scrapbook would prefer to underplay the historic nature of Scotts ascent to the Senate. Yes, he is the first black Republican in the upper chamber since Edward Brooke (1979) and the only African American in the Senate at all; and he assumes the seat once held by Strom Thurmond, the 1948 Dixiecrat candidate for president. The times they are a-changin and all that; but it is nearly a half-century since the passage of the Civil Rights Act, and we just reelected a black president. Time marches on.
No, The Scrapbook welcomes Tim Scott to the Senate not because of the color of his skin but because he is Tim Scott: a successful businessman-turned-conservative-politician of particular skill and widespread appeal.

" Alas, this is the modern Democratic party in a nutshell: Biology is destiny, and blacks in politics who do not conform to a rigid left-wing ideology are tokens. "
For those who don’t know, “The Scrapbook” is the “political tid bit” column/commentary in the front of the Weekly Standard magazine.
When it comes to race liberals can hum only one tune.
Actually, I must not have understood the argument. That makes no sense at all.
