Stay Awake!

School is in session.  The Honorable Jeff Sessions teaching.

Jeff Sessions grilled Supreme Court nominee Sotomayor, accusing her of racism.  The man has no sense of irony.  His own appointment to the bench was stalled because of his defense of the Ku Klux Klan.

But I write because of something much more important.  While his arrogance and hypocrisy were making me squirm,  Sessions was up to something much more significant.

“Senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL) added amendments to the Matthew Shepard Act which will in effect kill the legislation; for example, one amendment will apply the death penalty in some hate crimes cases. His two other amendments are also seen as burdensome to the bill and a blatant Republican attempt to put the legislation to sleep.”

A reminder to me and perhaps to you, to keep our eyes on the real things!

P.S.  Look out for additional lessons on how only certain kinds of white men can be objective.
