Unsurprising – African-American Republicans (or, in this case, Republican-endorsed*) are open season for Beltway progressives; female African-American ones, moreso – but depressing. Fortunately, Jim Geraghty is better at research than your average shrieker, so if one starts babbling about the Hatch Act you can quote this section of the relevant federal code at them. You can also follow that with a loud observation or two about how attacking minority conservatives seems to be a priority for some people, but that’s just me being a vocal advocate for negative reinforcement.
