NOW do you see what I mean about education?
This is a highly educated man! And while he is obviously ABLE to read he went to testify in Congress about the Arizona immigration law whithout having read it! And now that he's read it he is aware, being a highly educated lawyer, that it does indeed provide more protections against racial profiling than the federal law but...

Attorney General Eric Holder, just days after filing a federal lawsuit against Arizona's immigration law, on Sunday floated the possibility of filing another suit on racial profiling grounds.
The lawsuit filed Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Arizona claimed the state was infringing on federal immigration responsibilities and urged the judge to prevent the law from going into effect at the end of July. Despite some officials' claims that the law could lead to racial profiling, that concern was not cited as grounds for the suit.
However, Holder said on CBS' "Face the Nation" that the federal government was leading with its "strongest" argument in the suit filed Tuesday and would not rule out a second suit months down the road -- if the law ends up going into effect.
"It doesn't mean that if the law for whatever reason happened to go into effect, that six months from now, a year from now, we might not look at the impact the law has had ... and see whether or not there has been that racial profiling impact," Holder said. "If that was the case, we would have the tools and we would bring suit on that basis."
Holder, reacting to the firestorm of criticism from Republicans and border-state lawmakers, said the Justice Department decided to file the suit because Arizona's immigration law is "inconsistent" with federal policy and the U.S. Constitution. He said there's nothing to stop local jurisdictions and states from helping the government enforce immigration law, but described Arizona's law as contradictory to what the federal government is trying to accomplish.
Sen. Jon Kyl, R-Ariz., disputed Holder's characterization. Speaking on "Fox News Sunday," he said Arizona's law is trying to help, not hinder, the federal government's immigration efforts."
Not only, upon actual reading the actual language of the bill, is the Arizona law consistant with federal law but it goes beyond federal law with protections against profiling that federal law doesn't! These are the "facts of the matter!"
Only the seriously deranged, in my opinion would waste the taxpayer's money in such a flagrant manner!
NOW do you see what I mean about, not all but, much of today's higher education?
Holder has education but obviously no wisdom or real, practical intelligence!
