A New Chair

Have you heard about the leading candidate to be the national chair of the party?  The guy has a rather odd past.  He was a long time supporter of a racist who advocated segregation and subjugation of other races.  He's been endorsed by a leader of the Ku Klux Klan (David Duke) and did not even bother to reject that support.  He's a political extremist.

The guy in question is representative Ellison of Minnesota who is leading the race to become chair of the Democrats.  For many years, Ellison supported the Black Muslims (also known as the Nation of Islam) led by Louis Farrakhan. 

It seems as if the Democrats are actually trying to commit suicide.  There is no rational basis for them to select Ellison as their leader.  I guess it is the party's right to make such a poor choice, but it seems truly stupid.
