Confirming Alberto Gonzalez for Attorney General is racist
Alberto Gonzalez is Hispanic. Many on the right are calculating that Democrats won't oppose him because they don't want to be seen voting against the first Hispanic Attorney General. Many on the left are going along with that charade.
Here's the question: would Gonzalez be held to a higher standard for his part in the Abu Ghraib torture scandal if he were not Hispanic?
If so, than to vote to confirm him, when you think that Abu Ghraib disqualifies him, means that you are confirming him because he is Hispanic!
That is racist.
