I got another mailer from the Arkansas Democratic Party announcing the program today at which the party will give $25,000 to the Little Rock school anniversary observance and restating the party’s commitment to equality and better racial relationships.

Then I clicked on the Washington Post, where prominent Republicans are bemoaning GOP presidential candidates’ unwillingness to participate in black and Latino-sponsored debates. Former Party chair Ken Mehlman, to name one, thinks this sends a bad signal to minority voters. Uh, yeah.
