After You....

This has been covered elsewhere in the blogosphere, but it's still worth a mention:

A black judge in Baton Rouge announced Wednesday he is switching his political affiliation to the Republican Party.

A spokesman for the GOP said Judge Luke Lavergne's switch is the first time in the modern era that a black elected official made such a change.

Lavergne said the way he looks at it, he did not leave the Democratic Party. The Democratic Party left him."
The first ones are the toughest; they gotta face up to a lotta flak. But after them it gets easier. That's why this is so significant.
