NAACP flunks delegation

Dale Charles, president of the Arkansas NAACP, has compiled a report card on Arkansas members of Congress. Rep. Vic Snyder gets an A. Everyone else gets an F. That means you, Sen. Lincoln. I haven't heard them, but a friend reports hearing radio advertising on a Little Rock urban station slamming Lincoln for the all-white slate of nominees she came up with for four federal judgeships in Arkansas. (An even bigger odor may be associated with the nexus of Lincoln campaign contributions from Texas trial lawyers and the emergence of a Texas magistrate as the leading candidate for a judgeship in the western district of Arkansas.)
