This Negro for Rent
Hey, I don't make up the titles from other journalist's articles. Especially someone like Farai Chideya (who's a transplanted Bay Area resident, yay). But her article on the biggest sellout since Clarence Thomas, Colin Powell and Ken Blackwell (do they get any bigger?) is worth reading.
You can read it here: www.popandpolitics.com. You can't make this stuff up.
BTW, I must correct two things: (a) Armstrong's payola wasn't $500,000; it was $240,000 and (b) the only other "sellouts" bigger than those I just mentioned are card-carrying DLC members.
You know I couldn't make a post without making the requisite dig at that sorry bunch...
