Obamessiah Suck-Up of the Day

A Connecticut defense counsel may be tapping into the Obama aura:
A lawyer representing a man charged with drunken driving claims Connecticut's breathalyzers discriminate against blacks.

Attorney James O. Ruane . . . contends the device used by state police and most local police departments, the Intoxilyzer 5000, discriminates against blacks.

Ruane says research shows that the lung capacity of a black man is 3 percent smaller than a white man and, therefore, black men's test results vary from the sobriety standard set by the device.
Should the strategy fail, I suggest seeking a Presidential pardon. Holder and Obama--is there anything they can't do?

Yeah -- fix the economy by executive fiat.

Conceded the lawyer is a stupid scumbag (oops, I am doubly redundant!), and I strongly suspect the science is against him.

What does this have to do with Obama? How is this an Obamessiah suckup?

Really, there are so many things to hammer Obama on, you shouldn't have to stretch like this.

Yeah, and defense attorneys pull crap like this when they have absolutely nothing else, so I'm willing to give him a break.
