BAMN's legal silliness

Mindingthecampus has an excellent article on BAMN's (a radical group that supports racial preferences By Any Means Necessary) ridiculous lawsuit against Proposition 209. The article points out that the lawsuit is nothing more than attempt to smear Ward Connerly, a man who has made it his mission to champion equality for all races. An excerpt:

It sounds not like a serious legal mind at work, but rather a cheap politician taking lessons from Saul Alinsky, author of the famed Rules for Radicals: A Pragmatic Primer for Realistic Radicals. One of Alinsky's tactics is "Pick a target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it." That's what Connerly has had to endure for more than a dozen years now, and one can only wonder at how he maintains the energy and composure to press on.
