Why not exploit black people for political purposes?

"We're MoveOn.Org and it's critical you believe we like black people, even though we use them only for our selfish, deviant purposes in order to score what all of us in the office think are political points."

I love liberals. Just when you think they can't possibly be any more of a turn off, they figure out a way to become the political equivalent of Rosie O'Donnell. A new ad attacking judicial nominee John Roberts will be infecting TV's in the near future, in order to speak directly to the 1,571 people in the country (mainly Berkley coffee house patrons) who see the following connection:
The televised images of poverty-stricken evacuees from Hurricane Katrina are part of a provocative, last-minute effort by a liberal interest group to divert federal Judge John Roberts' path to confirmation as chief justice.

MoveOn.org Political Action plans to unveil a TV ad on Monday that questions whether Roberts is sensitive enough to civil rights concerns to lead the Supreme Court. The ad suggests that the plight of the mostly African-American evacuees in New Orleans showed that poverty remains a serious problem among minorities, said Ben Brandzel, the group's advocacy director. In a mix of judicial and racial politics, the ad then suggests that minorities could suffer if the Senate confirms Roberts.

"The connection is obvious," Brandzel said. "The images after Hurricane Katrina show we still live in a society where significant racial inequities exist. We believe John Roberts' record on civil rights ... is clearly not the direction our country needs to head now."
Whoever is donating the rope to MoveOn.org, keep it up. They still put it to good use despite the carcasses of their last failed ideas still hanging from the marketing department's rafters.
