A comment by unknown jane on Mister Moral Authority
Well, affirmative action may have gotten him into a place where he could attempt what he has, but no, what is it that makes some people (a lot of people it seems) go gaga over him? I mean, affirmative action can't change one's personal thoughts. I didn't even think political correctness could do such a number on an individual person.
But there you have it -- unless some sort of PCP pixie dust got dropped into the atmosphere two years ago, I can't find any reason why people are giving this fellow such a pass, much less why a fair number of the earth's inhabitants seem hell bent on near worship of him.
