Time to toss "diversity" back in the face of the Left

I was just listening to local talk radio host Eric Hogue who pointed out a rather important element of yesterday's primary election in California. While Democrat/Leftist talking points this morning are concentrating on the attempt to "buy" the election on the part of billionaires like gubernatorial candidate Meg Whitman and senatorial candidate Carly Fiorina, what is being downplayed is the fact that the Republican party - the so-called party of the white guys - just elected two women as the nominees for two major public offices.

But wait, there's more. The Republicans chose Abel Maldonado - a Latino - as the nominee for Lieutenant Governor. They chose Damon Dunn - a black man - as the nominee for Secretary of State. They chose Mimi Walters - a woman - as the nominee for state Treasurer. The first white male chosen was Tony Strickland, who is running for state Controller.

There it is! The racial, ethnic, and gender diversity that those on the Left often accuse the Republicans of not embracing. Let's see if the Republicans receive any acknowledgement for this from the Left, or will the goal posts be moved once again?

Not to mention, with Republican women running for high office in California (Whitman and Fiorina), Nevada (Sharron Angle will be taking on Dirty Harry Reid), and South Carolina (Nikki Haley will be running for Governor), will the press be slobbering all over themselves about the "Year of the Woman" like they were in 1992 when the Dems elected four female Senators?

Remember, diversity only counts on the Democratic side of the aisle.
