Rev. Al Sharpton, who I rarely agree with on anything, just said something I totally agree with.
"I don't agree with her politics. I don't agree with some of her background. But she should get an up-or-down vote," Sharpton said.
The Senate Judiciary Committee is scheduled to vote today on whether to allow her nomination to go to the full Senate.
The Washington Times reported today: "Sharpton echoed the concerns of many conservatives "” especially black conservatives "” that Justice Brown is being opposed because she doesn't conform to the Democratic ideology that many blacks espouse."
Sharpton said: "We've got to stop this monolith in black America because it impedes the freedom of expression for all of us. I don't think she should be opposed because she doesn't come from some assumed club."
He compared the filibusters to the same sort of "pocket vetoes" used for so long against blacks.
Good on ya, Reverend. [/Newfie dialect]
