Those Idealistic Black Republicans!

Armstrong Williams was paid $240,000 to shill for No Child Left Behind. He was chosen specifically because he is a black commentator, and hence might be expected to swing some black support to the underfunded federal program that is disrupting our schools. My question is, why did Armstrong Williams accept this form of affirmative action?
(Update: Go read this article at the always-insightful ThatColoredFella on Armstrong Williams and other Black Conservatives. He goes in bareknuckle and swings from the heels.)
