Affirmative Action GOP

Despite any minor conservative attributes, Bobby Jindal, Sarah Palin and Michael Steele don”€™t possess any extraordinary qualities or demonstrably different principles from countless other Republican governors, congressman and senators. In an era when Americans are screaming for change, Jindal, Palin and Steele don”€™t exactly represent a big departure from the Republicanism of the last eight years or even enough of a noticeable difference from the current administration. What the GOP seems to be trying to offer is not a new path, a renewal of principles or any new hope “€“ but affirmative action “€“ as they push female and minority leaders to the forefront to play identity politics in combating America’s first black president.
