Showing once again that the Democrats have no understanding of the words "irony" or "decency," the House Judiciary Committee chose the week of Martin Luther King Jr's birthday to uphold the Obama administration's defense of voter intimidation.
The case goes back to uniformed Black Panthers who "guarded" a polling place with nightsticks, hurled racial insults at white voters, and declared they were present to make sure that Barack Obama got elected...no matter what.
At Eric Holder's direction (and clearly with the president's blessing), the matter was dropped. Outraged Republicans called for an investigation - not only of the original charges, but of the Justice Department's stonewalling.
But the Democrats in the House Judiciary have put an end to that now, not only insulting the memory and dream of Dr. King, but theoretically clearing the way for the Black Panthers to send busloads of armed "poll watchers" to Massachusetts to make sure the "right" candidate wins Tuesday's critical special election. No matter what.
