My favorite thing about Armstrong Williams is his constant whining about how he's a victim:

The United States now confronts a modern edition of Jim Crow. If you are born white, you may aspire to achieve greatness as a liberal, conservative, moderate, independent or otherwise. There are no intellectual no-go zones. But if you are born black, your ambitions will be crushed unless you ape black power brokers.

Or unless you lie to your readers for profit.

My second favorite thing about Armstrong Williams is that he can't write for shit.

The hallmark of a so-called authentic black was the liberalism of yesteryear -- begging for hand-outs, capitulating to claims of an inability to compete, griping over underrepresentation -- like the troglodytes resisted Copernicus by clinging to Ptolemy.

Talk about fat and lazy.
