This may explain a lot about the Justice Department

Presented without further comment:

The PJ Tatler has obtained documents from the Justice Department detailing efforts to recruit attorneys and staff who are dwarfs or who have “psychiatric disabilities” or “severe intellectual disabilities.” On May 31, 2012, Assistant Attorney General Tom Perez issued a directive to affirmatively recruit people with these “targeted disabilities.”

This DOJ policy does not merely involve prohibitions against discrimination, but rather the documents reveal deliberate recruitment efforts to hire as attorneys and staff for the Department of Justice people suffering from psychiatric disorders and intellectual disabilities. Moreover, applicants can “self-identify” their disability by means of the “Standard Form 256, Self Identification Disability.”

Those with “targeted disabilities” may be hired through a “non-competitive” appointment. That means they don’t have to endure the regular civil service competition among applicants, but can be plucked from the stack of resumes and hired immediately instead.

So much starts to make sense, now…

    Can’t have anyone in there who might question authority when ordered to issue a national security letter targeting a Romney contributor.

  2. Drew the Infidel says:

    This reads like a script idea for a Leslie Nielsen or Jim Carrey (possibly Cheech and Chong) zany movie. Unfortunately, you cannot make this stuff up and our “top cop’s” being hit with a contempt of Congress citation demonstrates DOJ is already overrun with subhuman anthropoids and others of limited mental capacity who overpopulate the world.

    …efforts to recruit attorneys and staff who are dwarfs…

    … willing to be subject to the great and powerful Ozbama.

    Surprising? No, since the boss has a sign on his desk, on his bathroom mirror and in every hallway in the WH that says, “Hire the morally handicapped.”

    And, of course, that’s been his guiding light with most of his appointments. All other handicaps are secondary to this one.

  5. Kate in MI says:

    does the memo read “mental midgets”?

  6. Carlos says:

    It has to be assumed, Kate, that anyone receiving the memo is going to automatically be a mental midget to begin with.

    If they weren’t, why are they receiving the memo?

    That’s one of the advantages to being The Smartest Man In The World – everyone else is a mental midget by comparison to Dear Leader.
