Just a simple Cherokee trial lawyer, Barkman has been forcing his opinions on others in print since, for reasons that passeth understanding, he was an unsuccessful candidate for state representative in 2002. His philosophy: "If people had wanted me to be nice, they should've voted for me."

Republicans Hate Indians

Alaska Republicans want Interior Secretary Dirk Kempthorne to abolish tribal governments in that state because some of them dare to try to open casinos.
Yeah, I'm shocked, too.
UPDATE: From World-Nut Daily, shorter Doug Phillips: "Since no one from 1607 is still alive, Indians should stop their damn whining about being wiped out by disease and war and having their land stolen and their children kidnapped and blah blah blah! Besides, I'm the real descendent of Princess Pocahontas!"
UPDATE 2: Texas tribes screwed again. And Rep. Will Hartnett calls them "criminals." Kiss my rosy Cherokee ass, Hartnett.

Thanks for keeping track of all these things. Now that I'm moving back to Texas, I want to know what some of these sad excuses for humans, like Hartnett, are doing in our legislature. Between you and the Texas Observer, I should be up to speed in no time....

You know, I finally subscribed to your blog now that I know what an RSS feed is :-)
