A Tea Party Express guy came up to me and complained about affirmative action. I asked him "Why is that so bad?"
He said, "People should get ahead in America based on their personal merit and willingness to work hard!"
Did John McCain get into the US Naval Academy and did George W. Bush get into both Harvard and Yale based on their own hard work? (Yes, the astute reader could even throw in Ted Kennedy and John Kerry, perhaps)
The Tea Party Express guy basically summarized an opinion that said NEPOTISM good, affirmative action evil.
