The Minkoff Minx {Go Ahead…Make Your Move!}

"I get very passionate about what I think is right."-Hillary Rodham Clinton

ho hum…

Well with all the press that Colbert got…this seems to have been missed:

Rot at the DOJ | The Weekly Standard.

In his opening statement and during rounds of questioning Coates detailed the statements of Julie Fernandez, Obama’s pick for deputy assistant attorney general for civil rights, in Voting Section meetings in September and December 2009. She declared the section “was only interested in bringing traditional types of .  .  . cases that would provide political equality for racial and language minority voters.”

At several points Coates confirmed what we have previously reported in these pages—the screaming match between Coates and Obama officials when they began efforts to quash the case and Coates’s briefing of Perez just before the civil rights chief testified before the commission. Coates had described Justice’s hostility toward race-neutral enforcement of voting laws; Perez under oath denied knowledge of such hostility. Coates gave a rousing defense of neutral enforcement of civil rights laws, calling the dismissal of the New Black Panther case dismissal a “travesty of justice.”

For what is worth, I thought the Colbert bit was hilarious. However, it just seems the location of the skit was inappropriate, and a waste of tax payers money…

And this from Kerry:

“We have an electorate that doesn’t always pay that much attention to what’s going on so people are influenced by a simple slogan rather than the facts or the truth or what’s happening,”
