Service of Not So Secret E-mails Riles Me!

People wonder why Reverend Wrong has a large congregation. Here’s one reason. The higher ups in the Secret Service are blatantly racist. To joke about a lynching? Oh, yeah. That's hilarious.

If the Secret Services’ head guys send e-mails like this, imagine what they say privately. Pay attention to the e-mail on page 5, where these guys complain about “reverse racism” and how it’s destroying America. Maybe if there weren’t guys like this running the agency, we wouldn’t need any targeted hiring programs in the first place.

And here’s a concerning thought (at least if you're not white). Is there something endemic about Secret Service culture that would make us think this is an anomaly? Is there some reason to believe the SS has more bigots than other large government agencies or companies? Seriously, I’d like to know because I'm disgusted with my government right now, and I'd like to feel better.

It's not just the Secret Service.

I don't know whether this is funny or pathetic, in that these guys don't realize that e-mail doesn't go away when you hit the delete key.

And these are supposed to be our best and brightest.
