I just had to get in on a Dollar Bill post this week. Now the whole Jack and Jill fam has posted. I’m trying to go to bed, and I see this over on memeorandum (via The Hill):

“CBC digs in for Jefferson”

The Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) dug in its heels yesterday in defense of indicted Rep. William Jefferson (D-La.) and expressed concerns that a House ethics investigation on the lawmaker’s alleged corrupt activities could influence, even poison, a future jury trial.

Rep. Carolyn Kilpatrick (D-Mich.), the CBC chairwoman, said in a release, “We trust the merits of the case against Congressman Jefferson will be examined in a court of law instead of the chambers of public opinion.”


I am so confused by the CBC. The analysis and near-uprising within the Blackosphere these past few months (ahem, Fox, ahem) has been heartening, but when do we get to sit down around a table over a game of Tonk and ask, straight up, “Whatchoo talkin bout, CBC?”
