Liberal Hypocrisy

From the Washington Times:
Black Democratic leaders in Maryland say that racially tinged attacks against Lt. Gov. Michael S. Steele in his bid for the U.S. Senate are fair because he is a conservative Republican. Such attacks against the first black man to win a statewide election in Maryland include pelting him with Oreo cookies during a campaign appearance, calling him an "Uncle Tom" and depicting him as a black-faced minstrel on a liberal Web log...
State Sen. Lisa A. Gladden, a black Baltimore Democrat, said she does not expect her party to pull any punches, including racial jabs at Mr. Steele, in the race to replace retiring Democratic U.S. Sen. Paul S. Sarbanes. "Party trumps race, especially on the national level," she said. "If you are bold enough to run, you have to take whatever the voters are going to give you. It's democracy, perhaps at its worse, but it is democracy."
Here's a black man achieving unprecedented success, and because he doesn't have the same liberal leanings as the democrats, they can be as rasist as they want against him. Just about the most blatant statement from a liberal, that racism is only bad if it's targeting liberals.

As I thought about this more, I remembered how Rush Limbaugh used to refer to the NAACP as the NAALCP (National Association for the Advancement of Liberal Colored People). As true today as it was then.
