Good luck

"Progressive" harpy Nancy Willing highlights a primary challenger to Mike Castle:

[Carlet DeEtta] Ward, who describes herself as a self-employed social justice consultant, said one of her main goals is to show that a black woman is just as deserving of elected office as anyone.I want the American people to recognize the fact that sometimes the best qualified person for a high position such as U.S. senator is not always the lily white one, she said.

The only thing Mike Castle [has] going for him is that hes a white, privileged man. Hes a part of the white ruling class.

Again, the report is that Ward plans to primary Castle.

Nice. If she thinks she even has a slight chance to beat Mike, she's screwier than most of the LGOMB. I mean, while the sentiment of "change" (especially for a long-serving dude like Castle) is worthy, offering up racially-charged statements (which might serve the "progressive" Left well) will be nothing but [rightly] scorned. I wonder how "progressives" would react to a white guy running for office in, say, inner city Detroit saying "sometimes the best qualified person for a [city council] is not always the street-tough black one," or "The only thing [insert name] has going for him is that hes a black, politically connected man. Hes a part of the black city ruling class."

Yeah. I wonder.

Meanwhile, Resolute Determination did a little checking on Ms. Ward. Apparently she feels that working for Macy's and assaulting your boss there makes one the "best qualified person for a high position such as U.S. senator." And not only "just" US senator, it seems -- but president, too! Ward boasts that she "filed a $20 million dollar damage lawsuit against the US Dept of Justice, FBI and other law enforcement offices as the first human rights abuse victim in the United States." And if that doesn't take the cake, her consulting group proposed "the introduction of a legislative bill to make it illegal to be homeless and hungry in America."

I'm sure the answer to exactly how we should make such illegal would be as entertaining as the proposal!

As awful as the US is, I think that what Ms. Ward needs to do is seek political asylum in a country where her human rights will be better respected. Might I suggest North Korea?

"self-employed social justice consultant" might mean that she gets regular government contracts to give "diverstity" seminars federal, state and local employees.
