Andrew Young backs Wal-Mart, Georgia left clueless
What have you done with Ambassador Young, Lee Scott? I don't know if I'd believe the story if I hadn't heard it on NPR this morning as well. How could one of our own, a man with firm roots in the long struggle for civil rights, take the helm of a PR campaign engineered by a solidly Republican corporate juggernaut with an abysmal record of discrimination, disempowerment, dastardly deeds, and outright lying? Andrew Young's great accomplishments can never be undone, but I can't help but feel trying to harness the power of the dark side for good is a fool's game, one that Darth Zell played only too well.
