Blinkered Thinker

I absolutely agree that Congressman Reyes should've known by now the Sunni--Shia difference, particularly since he will chair the Intel Committee. The difficulty is that those who see everything in politics through the prisms of race, ethnicity, and gender will accuse Mr. Reyes' questioner of implicit bigotry; i.e., he would never ask the same questions of a white congressman.

George Will many years ago on This Week w/ Brinkley asked Jesse Jackson, an announced candidate for president, a straightforward question about the G-7. Jackson was clueless, stammering to Will: "Explain yourself." Will was excoriated in the press for trying to 'show up' a minority presidential candidate.
