JAMES TARANTO ON THE DEMOCRATS’ ATTACKS ON MITCH MCCONNELL’S “CHINESE WIFE:” Liberal Racists Warn of Chaos: Only the left has a problem with an interracial political marriage. “McConnell and Chao have been married since 1993, and in all that time we don’t remember a conservative or a Republican making an issue of her race or national origin. Since the wedding, McConnell has won re-election three times, suggesting that neither Republicans nor general-election voters in Kentucky–a state where slavery wasn’t abolished until 1865–are bothered that their senator is in an interracial marriage. Other than conspiracy nuts, the only people who seem bothered by it are the liberals at Progress Kentucky.”
