This is an Outrage!

Obama Justice Department drops charges against Black Panthers' voter intimidation.

And when it was a GOP Latino nominee, with a compelling background....

Estrada's nomination for a federal judgeship set off alarm bells among Democrats. There is a group of left-leaning organizations -- People for the American Way, NARAL, the Alliance for Justice, the Leadership Conference on Civil Rights, the NAACP, and others -- that work closely with Senate Democrats to promote Democratic judicial nominations and kill Republican ones. They were particularly concerned about Estrada.

In November, 2001, representatives of those groups met with Democratic Senate staff. One of those staffers then wrote a memo to Democratic Sen. Richard Durbin, informing Durbin that the groups wanted to stall Bush nominees, particularly three they had identified as good targets. "They also identified Miguel Estrada as especially dangerous," the staffer added, "because he has a minimal paper trail, he is Latino, and the White House seems to be grooming him for a Supreme Court appointment. They want to hold Estrada off as long as possible."

It was precisely the fact that Estrada was Hispanic that made Democrats and their activist allies want to kill his nomination. They were determined to deny a Republican White House credit, political and otherwise, for putting a first-rate Hispanic nominee on the bench.

Democrats and their random "racial support." Such an odd thing. Mind you none of this should matter for being a justice.

Technically by these standards we need:

-man
-woman
-black
-white
-hispanic
-asian
-gay
-straight
-bisexual
-catholic
-jewish

etc... How about dropping the life story garbage and getting people that have a clue on THE LAW!

Tough to be a Dem these days, having to live by the same standards they have demanded of others for years.

I posted on this Black Panther thing. This is an endorsement of future harassment.
