Must-Read: The righteousness in Hobby Lobby’s cause
My friend and fellow Charlottean Bruce at the Gay Patriot blog called Senator Kay Hagen’s DC office today to ask, point blank, whether or not the Senator felt he was a “coward” as per AG Holder’s description of Americans on the issue of race. Here’s the response he got (emphasis his):
[...] given the fact that if I dare speak about race in the workplace, I’d be fired under current employment laws….. Does Senator Hagan think I — an ordinary American — am a coward?“
The poor dude who answered the phone sputtered, then said he “figured she would not agree with Holder’s statement”. But then put me on hold and after about 3 minutes came back with: “Let me take your address so we can send you a response to Holder’s nomination since Sen. Hagan still has to answer a lot of letters about the subject.”
I don’t know, it is a pretty simple question: Senator Hagan — do you think I’m a coward?
Hey Bruce – $5 says someone at Mel Watt’s office would actually give you a definitive answer to that question without you ever having to be put on hold
