If they weren’t so dangerous, they would be laughable.

The Capitol community will pause for a few moments this week to honor Frederick Douglass, the abolitionist and former D.C. resident whose statued likeness will be placed in the Capitol on Wednesday.

The statue’s dedication in Emancipation Hall in the Capitol Visitor Center has been a long time coming and has been celebrated on both sides of the aisle, from the office of Del. Eleanor Holmes Norton, D-D.C., to that of Speaker John A. Boehner, R-Ohio, who will host Douglass family descendents for an event surrounding the dedication.

And for D.C.’s Republican Party, it’s an opportunity to remind people that Douglass was a Republican active in District politics.
“He is the original urban Republican,” said D.C. GOP Chairman Ron Phillips.

The GOP can kiss my ass.
