THE POINTING FINGER
The Department of Justice last week announced that it’s considering sending federal monitors to New York City to monitor the NYPD’s ‘stop and frisk’ policy because it might be unconstitutional and might even be in violation of the right to due process of many in New York’s minority communities.
What?! Federal monitors in New York?!
But, but, federal monitors are supposed to go to Mississippi and Alabama and Georgia and South Carolina and places like that. They need federal monitors down there because they’re... the South!!!
We don’t need federal monitors. We’re the North. We’re liberals and progressives and...Democrats. We go to Central Park and do the wave. We sing about poverty and social justice and racial harmony. It’s so sad it sometimes makes us cry. See! See! These are real tears, in case you didn’t notice.
“Who is it?”
“Got some chickens out here for you.”
“What? We didn’t order any chickens.”
“Yeah, well come on out and tell that to the chickens. They say they’re just...coming home to roost.”
