I’m focusing on an irrelevant issue, but the presence, or non-presence,
of Johnston on the stage tonight strikes me as important. It’s one
thing for delegates to be understanding and compassionate about the fix
these two teenagers have gotten themselves into. It’s another to

year-old daughter who was unmarried and pregnant by a tough-talking
black kid, my guess is if that they all appeared onstage at a
Democratic convention and the delegates were cheering wildly, a number
of conservatives might be discussing the issue of dysfunctional black
Which, of course, is a good point, but did Atrios have to mention “Byron York,” “Hair,” and “nut” in the same sentence? I’m gonna wake up screaming every night for a month.
