Nikki Halley set to make historic appointment to US Senate

South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley (R) will announce Monday that she will appoint Rep. Tim Scott (R-S.C.) to the Senate, according to two sources with knowledge of the pick.

Scott, 47, will replace Sen. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.), who is leaving the chamber in January to head up the conservative Heritage Foundation.

Sen.-designate Scott will become the only African-American currently serving in the Senate and the first black Republican to serve in the upper chamber since the 1970s. He will also be the first black senator from the South since Reconstruction. More here:

Wow, Get that?  

Now, remember when Obama became president ... how the media couldn't stop saying "historic?"  Remember when Sotomayor got appointed to the Supreme Court and the media couldn't stop saying "historic?"

That's right, anytime some communist jackass Democrat (of color) gets elected or appointed, it's "historic."  Something tells me you won't hear the word "historic" mentioned in the media coverage of this appointment.  Instead, I expect to hear the terms "Uncle Tom" and "cornball brother."
