If ever there existed a more venous bog of eternal stench than The View, I seriously doubt it. A panel of Bush haters with one quasi-conservative. Yet, Condi Rice shone above them all. Not, not one congratulation on the fact that Condi Rice accomplished so very much in her lifetime. Were she a black liberal, she would have been worshipped. Therein lies the rub. The black community has shunned and ridibuled black Republicans, among them Thomas Sowell, Clarence Thomas, Condi Rice, Michael Steele, Ken Blackwell and other conservatives such as Larry Elder. That is an absolutely shame.
