"How did it come to pass that an opposition's measure of a president's foreign policy was all or nothing, success or "failure"? The answer is that the political absolutism now normal in Washington arrived at the moment--Nov. 7, 2000--that our politics subordinated even a war against terror to seizing the office of the presidency." - Daniel Henninger - WSJ 11/18/05

NAACP President Hits the Road

"Mr. Gordon was a creature of the corporate boardroom" - NYTimes

Not breaking news at this point.

Said Bruce S. Gordon:

“In order for any organization to be effective, there has to be a tight alignment between the C.E.O. and the board; that alignment in this case does not exist.”

Said Julian Bond:

“We want it to be a social justice organization; he wanted it to be more of a social service organization. Our mission is to fight racial discrimination and provide social justice. Social service organizations deal with the effects of racial discrimination. We deal with the beast itself.”
What I hear from Bond? 'We want to fight racial discrimination, even when non-existent.' This is not to say racial discrimination does not exist, just not to the degree the NAACP sees it.
