I decided not to be cute about this: after all, rampant hypocrisy typically isn’t.
President Barack Obama’s team is looking to hire more African-Americans, a search that has stirred a debate among black Democrats about Obama’s record on diversity and its implications for his reelection.
“Looking to hire.” Good God. Just hire them, OK? …And I love how the Politico article tries to make this sort of thing sound hard. You see, it’s not actually hard to hire a competent staff that fits whatever reasonable criteria you’ve set up, even at very short notice (which this kind of is). It will simply not be cheap. But, hey! The campaign’s rolling in money, right?
