The problem with Dumbocrats is their broken irony detector.
For instance -- the first black Secretary of State switches parties to vote for a man who keeps company with a terrorist bomber like Bill Ayers, just because that man's skin color happens to match his own. And that's not racist.
But he's heard that there might be a "strain" of racism in the Party of Lincoln.
Not, of course, in his own new party -- the party of slavery, Jim Crow, George Wallace, the KKK, and its long-serving Grand Wizard Senator Robert Bird.
Powell has certainly found his home on the Dumbocrat plantation.
