If The Republican Party Wants to Become the Party of Whiny Victims....

...I think they've picked the wrong poster child. I mean, it may be fun to feign outrage because a white man didn't get a promotion, five years ago. Ricci's service as the named plaintiff in a lawsuit over that incident indicates that he's fully prepared to accept compensation if the Supreme Court ultimately decides his case has legal merit, but he's clearly moved on with his life, taken other opportunities, made other opportunities for himself. That's the part to commend and celebrate. Nonetheless, people like Pat Buchanan see him principally as a victim, and more than that want to celebrate him as a victim for political purposes.
