DEMOCRATIC WHITE MALE SENATORS CONSPIRE to block a black woman’s committee chairmanship. In Wisconsin.

UPDATE: Ann Althouse emails a correction:

You wrote “DEMOCRATIC WHITE MALE SENATORS CONSPIRE to block a black woman’s committee chairmanship. In Wisconsin.” But they only blocked her continuing membership on the committee. Democrats are the minority after the recent election. She became the chair only after a recall earlier this year gave Dems the majority. In 2013, the chair will be Republican again.

Sorry, I misread that. Obviously hadn’t had enough coffee. Here’s Ann’s post on the topic.
