A note on the Amazon ads: I've chosen to display current events titles in the Amazon box. Unfortunately, Amazon appears to promote a disproportionate number of angry-left books. I have no power over it at this time. Rest assured, I'm still a conservative.

Ask and ye shall receive: Well, last week when President Bush resubmitted the name of Judge Charles Pickering to the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals, the cries of racist erupted from the Democrats. Their charge was mainly based on a 1994 cross burning case where Pickering sought a lighter sentence for a convicted cross burner because his cohorts -- including one who was definitely more culpable than the rest -- got off with zero jail time. The government sought a 7 1/2 year sentence for the cross burner. And the ringleader got off with nothing.

My question was: What happened with the Clinton Justice Department that was so soft on racism that they gave the ringleader no jail time?

Thankfully, National Review's Byron York has dug up the answer. The short version: They screwed up.

I'm also watching my tape of today's "Special Report with Brit Hume." Hume interviewed York on this very subject and brought up this very issue. Finally, this aspect of the issue gets out in the mainstream media.

And you read it here first.
