Martinez Is In, But This Is Wrong

I've been blogging quite a bit on what I perceive to be a pattern of mistreatment of conservatives who are ethnic minorities. So I see this, and while I'm glad the guy is in, and he took more votes than John Ashcroft (presumably because there were no morons like Jean Carnahan to cast a "no" vote for some whacked out reason), a man with his qualifications should have been treated with much more respect.

In any case, he is now well-positioned to be an excellent Attorney General, and potentially a Supreme Court Justice.

But the left in the Senate hates the very idea of the man. Like Condi Rice, he is a minority who is an American success story sans the Democrats. He didn't need them, doesn't need them, and will never need them. And that just infuriates the left. Minorities ought to be Democrats, ought to reliably vote for Democrats and ought to keep their mouths shut otherwise.

Democrats know only too well that the loss of the white swing voter was devastating. The loss of minority votes is death. So in order to enforce obedience, white liberals ruthlessly pound on conservative minorities who step out of line.

They're finding it to be a losing proposition. Because nobody likes to be told to toe the line the way members of their ethnic group do. Last I checked, we called that racism.

Or maybe the Democratic senators were upset that Gonzalez didn't answer their questions at his confirmation hearing. Or maybe the Democratic senators don't trust the judgment of a man who apparently didn't object to the Justice Department's analysis of the "quaint" Geneva Convention. From Gonzalez's answers at his confirmation hearing, it appears that he only acted as an administrative assistant to the President, requesting opinions from DOJ and handing them to the President.

Or maybe you're right, but then what about the Senate Democrats confirmations of Former State Sec. Powell, and Labor Sec. Chao, Transportation Sec. Mineta, HUD Sec. Jackson, and Former Education Sec. Paige?

Your lousy deductive reasoning, and it is lousy, wouldn’t even earn you a C in a 9th Grade rhetoric’s class. But kudos on drawing broad, irrelevant generalizations.
