President Obama’s Choice to replace Eric Holder as Attorney General: Loretta Lynch.
In a rather brilliant move by President Barack Obama, he chose an African American woman named Loretta Lynch to replace outgoing Eric Holder. It’s brilliant for a couple reasons.
First, it’s an African American woman. Only the second African American, and the first woman in the position. This pisses off neo-confederate Tea Party Republicns (pretty much all of them, now) to no end. It makes them act stupid. But, they just won the Senate, so surely, they’ll be adult about this like they were when they lost the fight to stop Blacks and whites from being allowed to legally marry, of course.
Secondly, she’s more than uber-qualified. She was not only approved for her current position on the bench with a unanimous voice roll call vote, she was approved that way twice. She’s a shoe-in for the position. They’re going to WANT to den her, but doing so will highlight the fact that the GOP is and has been disgustingly racist for as long as it has existed. Here’s her sterling biography:
And, third, her name absolutely confuses poor hill-folk. Loretta Lynch is almost identical to their favorite twang darling, the Coal Miner’s Daughter herself, Loretta Lynn. That not only confuses them, it infuriates them violently.
“How dare them darkies mes with our virgin princess Loretta?“
Here’s a bit about Kentucky hill country coal miner heroine Loretta Lynn. Great woman and great singer, actually, but you know the type of knuckle-dragger that claims her as their own.
So, in a little nutshell, Loretta Lynch will be the next US Attorney General who will be charged with prosecuting election fraud and other various cases of corruption in politics, primarily amongst the ones doing it — our Republican opponents. And any attempt they had been making to pretend that they were not racist — that racism in America is dead, will be hung from their cowboy hats like a big Scarlet Letter.
Oh, here it comes, right on schedule:
Here’s the article by Jean Ann Esselink at the New Civil Rights Movement about the predictable racist reaction already by the Republican Right. FOX’s brood, in all its glory.
The dead Junkie ne0-Nazi Andrew Breitbart’s echo chamber magazine ran a story on Loretta Lynch as being one of Bill Clinton’s defense attorneys back when the Neocon Right came after him with the last big fake congressional outrage, “Whitewater.” The Goebbelian hatchet job was obviously a purposefully incorrect report, but pegging it as a purposeful lie was adorable. Here’s the segment on the Colbert Report.
Here’s the article about the Neo-Nazi hit piece in Talking Points Memo:
