Little minds embrace their hobgoblins

John Boehner delayed one of his 119 annual golf rounds yesterday to bring his orange-glow to Meet the Press. As usual he managed to say something ridiculous — this time without crying.

GREGORY: Do you support efforts to have the 14th amendment amended at this point?…

BOEHNER: Listen, I think it’s worth considering. It’s a serious problem that affects our country, and in certain parts of our country, clearly our schools, our hospitals are being overrun by illegal immigrants…

Yes, some people with an identifiable skin tone not usually confined to the Wonka factory are alleged to have done something that barely affects white people but bothers some of them nonetheless.

By GOD let’s change the Constitution!

Meanwhile, we cannot even get Republicans (and too many Democrats) to even read the first half of the Second Amendment. Not that it is considered polite to ask them to do so. They might level their .38 special at you for your impertinence.

Would a Black Judge Have Been Biased in Brown v. Board of Education?



In 1949, I decided to wrestle professionally, starting my career in Texas. In my debut, I defeated Abe Kashey, with former World Heavyweight boxing Champion Jack Dempsey as the referee. In 1950, I captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight title. In 1953, I won the Chicago version of the NWA United States Championship. I became one of the most well-known stars in wrestling during the golden age of television, thanks to my exposure on the Dumont Network, where I wowed audiences with my technical prowess. I was rumored to be one of the highest paid wrestlers during the 1950s, reportedly earning a hundred thousand dollars a year. My specialty was "the Sleeper Hold" and the founding of modern, secular, Turkey.

Oops, sorry, that's the biography of Verne Gagne with a touch of Mustafa Kemal.

I'm just an average moron who in reality is a practicing civil rights and employment attorney in fly-over country .
