The Original "Politician Who Showered With Blacks," RIP

News Item: Jack Kemp dies of cancer

The NFL-turned-quarterback was both a Congressman and HUD secretary, and went on to become Bob Dole's running mate in 1996. Aside from supply-side economics, Kemp's primary legacy is his effort to make the GOP a more hospitable place for blacks and other minorities- an effort that, alas, appears to have been completely abandoned at some point during Bush's first term.

The headline of this post, of course, is referencing a classic bit from soon-to-be-Senator Franken. (That bit, by the way, immediately follows a joke about a hypothetical 1996 Republican convention with the other newest Democratic senator, Arlen Specter, as the nominee.)
