‘ASHCROFT FIX’ WORTHY OF THE ONION Edward Blum’s article on the “Ashcroft fix” and the Voting Rights Act could have been published in The Onion as a parody of right-wing think-tank nonsense [" Ashcroft Fix Is In," May 25]. First, one thing that Blum fails to discuss is the need for minority representation in Congress, which is the purpose of the Voting Rights Act. Our adventure in Iraq shows how important it is to a country as a whole to enfranchise minorities. Blum could not care less. Second, Blum assumes that a Democratic president will select an “aggressively partisan attorney general.” Democrats have not proven very good at doing that. Blum must be thinking of the Bush administration.
