Blame It On The Brown People

No wonder Frazier Glenn Miller tried to file as a Democrat for Missouri's 7th Congressional District seat. He's obviously been reading The New Republic, which is, at least in words, a liberal magazine. In reality it has been the mouthpiece of the Democratic Leadership Committee (DLC), which, although portrayed as "centrist", is actually rather conservative for a part of the Democratic party.

Martin Peretz is the co-owner, and editor-in-chief of The New Republic magazine. He chatted with Hugh Hewitt

HH: Do you want the Democrats to win majorities in the House or the Senate, Martin Peretz?

MP: I'm...I'm appalled by some of the people who would become head of Congressional committees.

HH: Is that a no?

MP: Uh, but I'm also appalled by some of the shenanigans...

HH: But is that...I've got five seconds. Is that a no, Martin Peretz?

MP: It's a cowardly refusal to answer.

HH: (laughing) Okay. We'll carry it on, later. Martin Peretz, thanks.
And just who are those "people who would become head of Congressional committees" which appal Mr. Peretz? Probably the five brown Congresspeople (Rangel, Conyers, Millender-McDonald, Thompson, and Velázquez) who are in line to become committee chairs when the Democrats take the House, based on this column:
But, if Lamont is trying to put himself forward as a new face in the Democratic Party, the two men who planted themselves right in back of him on the stage at the victory party gave it all away. Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton are hustlers, and racist hustlers at that. They have accomplished nothing for African-Americans, nothing. Jackson keeps himself alive by conning big corporations out of bags of cash. He is a one-man reparations racket. Sharpton is the reverend with the big silver jewelry, and it isn't a cross. He sups off his perennial political campaigns and has been known not to pay taxes besides.
Should Frazier Glenn Miller (aka, Stephen Samuel Miller) ever decide to run for president, perhaps Martin Peretz could be his running mate.
