The establishment media lap dancers for Obama are, of course, mostly ignoring the story about the Justice Department dropping the already-won, voter intimidation case against the New Black Panthers, but at the Washington Times we have been holding, or is that Holdering, the feet of Justice to the fire of righteousness. I dug up this MySpace page of the Panther who is simultaneously a Democratic poll watcher, Jerry Jackson. Kerry Picket did a great job listing the highlights/lowlights of this sicko web page. Reps. Frank Wolf and Lamar Smith have been doing an excellent job at keeping the heat on as well. Earlier editorials on the topic are here and here. Oh, and here. And kudos to the Election Journal, which I THINK was the first one to break the news that Panther Jerry Jackson AGAIN was a poll watcher four days after his case was dismissed.
Overall, this case, combined with Walpin-gate, about the fired AmeriCorps IG, shows SO much more corruption and cover-up of legitimate law enforcement or investigatory functions than ANYthing the Bush/Gonzales Justice Department did, that it really is outlandish for the establishment media to mostly ignore the stories, But here we are, again today, with the Washington Post giving big play to the story about the fired Bush-era US Attorneys — or, I should say, what basically should be a non-story. (Since the Post requires a pain-in-the neck sign-in every time you visit the site, and I can’t be bothered to look up my friggin password, I won’t bother linking to today’s Post story.)
Anyway, this Panther story has legs, and even Inspector Clouseau could figure out it’s important. Which makes Clouseau a hell of a lot smarter than the establishment media.
