While the judiciary tries to hold itself out as an impartial branch of government that floats high above the petty partisan fray of DC politics, everyone knows that's pretty much a load of BS.
As Montana's chief U.S. district judge reminds us, sometimes those black-robed intellectuals forget to keep their political views, and bestiality fantasies, to themselves…
Montana's chief federal judge Wednesday admitted forwarding an email to friends about President Obama that appears to equate African Americans with dogs and raises questions about the president's mixed racial ancestry.
"Normally I don't send or forward a lot of these, but even by my standards, it was a bit touching. I want all of my friends to feel what I felt when I read this. Hope it touches your heart like it did mine," Chief U.S. District Judge Richard Cebull wrote before forwarding the email…
In the email, a boy asks his mother why he is black and she is white. "His mother replied, 'Don't even go there Barack! From what I can remember about that party, you're lucky you don't bark!' "
The Bush-appointed judge later apologized, sort of…
"The only reason I can explain to you is I am not a fan of our president, but this goes beyond not being a fan," Cebull told the Tribune. "I didn't send it as a racist, although that's what it is. I sent it out because it's anti-Obama."
Come on, Judge. Keep your partisan political views where they belong: hidden in your judicial opinions.
You're a federal judge. You don't have to go around sending racist chain emails with a subject line that says "Fwd: Fwd: Fwd: Fwd:" like some out-of-touch dad with an AOL email address. I'm sure there's a civil rights lawsuit somewhere you can strike down for no good reason.
Keep it classy, Montana.
