    Similarly, you can take a shot at my question - why have 79 of 83 been white males? When you answer that question, you'll have the answer to TD's red herring.

    The short answer is obviously the position is inherently political and the POTUS believes that Holder then Lynch were the best picks for that position based on a number of different practical, operational and, yes, political goals, and that both would do an outstanding job. There really cannot be any other reason. You just cannot accept that a black person can earn any job based on the merits. That's your problem, not mine or Lynch's or the Presidents.

    Goodness, it's like you're shocked that in this world and especially in the political arena, who you are and who you know matters. You're not an idiot so this comes as no surprise to you. You just object when a white boy doesn't get the job based on his connections.
    of course its political Its racial pandering. and the white boys didn't get into big name law schools because they are white

    Curious-have you been to law school?

    because during most of the time period, that was the group that had the most qualified candidates

    So you aren't going to answer the question.

    It's incredible you're a supposed highly trained lawyer and making such idiot arguments. Yes, it's a political appointment to a political job. Race is part of our politics. This is shocking to you somehow or you just don't favor blacks in positions of power?

    and the white boys didn't get into big name law schools because they are white
    Really? I have a feeling when I look at the class of 1984 that whites will be very well represented.

    BTW, you avoid legacy preferences like the plague. I understand why but it's kind of funny you don't have issues with AA for rich white boys and girls.

    Curious-have you been to law school?
    No, but I know enough that baseless, unsubstantiated claims don't fly. I thought lawyers got that as well.

    Yeah, OK, no AA for white men going on, they just happened to make up the most qualified candidates because of random chance and not a system that guaranteed that ONLY white men had the opportunity to acquire real power in America.

    You're just upset that the monopoly for white men in power is only 99% intact.

    Nah....I'll leave it up to the jury to decide. They can decide whether it is just a "coincidence' that all of you took to this site mimicking Limbaugh's words. I knew something was up when I saw a half dozen posters saying the same thing. That's a sure sign that it was a talking point somewhere.

    Thank you for stating what I already knew. You really have proven you just don't get the point. Obama panders to racial spoils. That is the point The late great political writer David Broder (hardly a conservative) noted that once the soviet union fell apart, the energy of the American hating faction of the left turned from worshipping Russian Collectivism to trying to balkanize American into warring groups each trying to assert claim for group rights.

    wrong, if there was a pure meritocracy on law school admissions and the AG job, there's be more Asians and far less blacks
