In my younger days, when I was a well-qualified candidate for college and anything else, I wholeheartedly supported affirmative action. I was above being on the margin for any college/job decision. But now that I am clinging to even being marginal, I can't stand affirmative action. You mean some hard-working Eskimo who's gotten no breaks in life is going to take a spot from my lazy privileged ass? Not on my watch. That goes for all the major minorities- Eskimos, Native Americans, Hmong. You've benefited enough. It's time to put an end to the "soft bigotry of low expectations." I have no idea what that means, but it's a great Bush catch phrase.
