What's Wrong with NAACP Command Performance?

Both CalPundit and Kos and Tapped all thought the NAACP attack on Dem candidates who initially were going to skip the convention was unfair.


When someone gives a job interview, they have the right to expect you to show up. Is it too much to expect one appearance at the NAACP convention after months by candidates visiting the the homes of white Iowa farmers and small town New Hamphire families?

The political blackmail exerted by Iowa and New Hampshire in keeping two highly unrepresentative states at the front of the calendar is far more problematic than the largest black organization in the country demanding the courtesy of a visit.
