Gurwitz finds needle in haystack

Poor Jonathan Gurwitz is having to write a column every day during the Republican National Convention and it’s obvious that he’s having a difficult time coming up with things to write about. Yesterday he went after the Ron Paul supporters who are refusing to fall in line and kiss John McCain’s ring. And now today we get this: Blacks in GOP reject ‘identity politics’
Yeah, all two of them.
Interestingly enough, on the same page as Gurwitz’ column, the E-N runs this interesting news brief:
Black delegates are rare this year
Only 36 of the 2,380 delegates seated on the convention floor are black, the lowest number since the Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies began tracking diversity at political conventions 40 years ago.

But Gurwitz still manages to find a few black delegates to interview for his column and all say they reject identity politics. Gasp! Imagine that!
Meanwhile, Gurwitz conveniently ignores the fact that last night’s convention was all about trying to encourage women across America to embrace identity politics. Vote for the Soccer Mom!
