Classic: Pelosi Gives Clyburn Made-Up Job Title

This is the cherry atop the hypocritical race-pandering sundae known as the Democrat Party.

Under the compromise, Maryland Rep. Steny Hoyer, the current House majority leader will become the Democratic whip, which will be the number two spot in the new Democratic minority.

South Carolina Rep. James Clyburn agreed to end his bid for that spot and instead hold a new, third ranking leadership post that will be created for him. The sources say the title and portfolio for the spot is yet to be determined.

When the Democrats become the minority party in the House they lose the position of Speaker, a shift that left Hoyer and Clyburn jockeying for the House minority whip position.

The deal allows Rep. John Larson of Connecticut to keep his post as Democratic caucus chairman and Rep. Xavier Becerra to remain as the vice chair of the Democratic caucus.

The white guys get to keep the real and important leadership posts and the black guy gets a no-show figurehead post. Everybody wins!

UPDATE: Even more pathetic than we could have imagined. Clyburn given title of “Assistant (to the) Leader.” The House Democrats have become The Office.
