Joe Scarborough and Pat Buchanan are grilling Jesse Jackson, Jr. on why the Democratic Party gets so many African-American votes yet has so few black senators, and will have none if Obama becomes President.

I’m trying to imagine worse people to have a dumber conversation, and utterly failing. I’m seeing the beginning of what will probably be a defining narrative of the night – what does a newly empowered Democratic Party “owes” to its black base (i.e., how much are shiftless Negroes going to steal from white Christians now that they have the Head Negro In Charge)?
