Usually I don't bother with the crap posted by sites like The Huffington Post, however, given the number of times this article popped up in my Facebook newsfeed, I thought it might be worth a mention here. This article centers on the lack of any African-American Senators in the US Senate. The article then goes on to talk about the Tea Party and their position on the 17th Amendment of the US Constitution. Overall, I think that the author assumes that the Tea Party has powers well beyond any realistic means or measure. By the end of the article, the authors fails to mention any remedy to address the lack of African-Americans in the Senate. What would the author have America do? Affirmative action for public office?
