When South Carolina Republican Senator Jim DeMint left the Senate for the high paying obscurity as the head of a partisan think tank Rep. Tim Scott was appointed to take his place.
Mr. Scott will now be showcased by the Republicans, because he is an African American and they want to try and show Americans they have nothing against African Americans. Of course, the fact that they have to showcase Mr. Scott raises the question about whether or not even they believe they are a color blind party.
