Elaine Chao + Mitt Romney = Okay. I Guess It's At Least Something For Some Of You

Tuesday, August 07, 2012

I still don't get certain things (but that's in part because I've been told I have a small brain which doesn't always work, and sometimes I have to take that into consideration), but I still don't always get POC and the GOP. Sure, we can say we're more than just our color and other things override that, but again, sometimes I still don't get it:

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney on Friday announced that former Labor Secretary Elaine Chao would be national chair of his Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders for Romney community.

Chao, who is married to Sen. Minority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, became the first Asian American woman in the Cabinet as secretary of labor under the administration of George W. Bush from 2001 to 2009. She has also served as chair of the Federal Maritime Commission, deputy secretary of transportation, president and CEO of United Way of America, and director of the Peace Corps.

“I am honored that Gov. Mitt Romney asked me to serve as the national chair of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders for Romney,” said Chao. “Having worked in previous presidential administrations, I know Gov. Mitt Romney has the experience and the character to tackle the problems that are facing our nation. Americans are suffering, and it will take new leadership to put this country on a path to prosperity and full employment.”

But for those people that do - I guess it's something.
