No, I'm not talking about President Obama. Certainly the racists in the right will continue to suggest that Obama is a foreign-born terrorist -- No, the black man who will now become the GOP scapegoat is RNC Chairman Michael Steele.
Steele is already on the hot seat because he dared to get in the way of Rush Limbaugh, and now Republican operatives are busily throwing darts at Steele, smelling a chance to get the black man off their podium once and for all.
It is highly unlikely that the following weak statement made by Steele is one of the principle reasons Specter defected:
...and the position articulated by Steele is a widely held view on the right. Steele' suggestion that he'd listen to arguments against funding Specter wasn't a strong position at all...
Nonetheless I predict the RNC Black Man will take the axe for Specter's defection, as the racists on the right leap at the opportunity to get rid of their most prominent black Republican once and for all.
