Well, it's good to see the folks at National Review defending Rush, as is correct to do. Those who are attacking him are acting exactly as I expected them to do, especially one particularly nasty Canadian Jewish pseudo-conservative whose new site (he quit NR) I visited for the first and last time today.
But Jonah Goldberg alerted us to this chortle-fest. Wikipedia, our good friend, informs us that Jackson was born in 1962. I doubt she saw much if any de jure (or de facto) segregation.

Third, as to actual discrimination...see the title of this post.
I guess she just has to racialize her job or she feels like she's selling out to the man or something. The history of the Left in America, in times of madness.
One of these days I'm going to present my list of points relating to Jonah's book. Maybe when the paperback comes out.
