Sharpton, Kobach's common ground

Sharpton, Kobach's common ground

I'm always amazed how the Rev. Al Sharpton shows up wherever there's a racial incident in the news. He might be sincere about it, but I strongly suspect it's just a way to keep himself in the national spotlight.

Why do the people who pay his salary, whoever they are, keep funding his campaign of self-promotion?

I'm always amazed how Kansas' Secretary of State Kris Kobach shows up wherever immigration laws are in the news. He might be sincere about it, but I strongly suspect it's just a way to keep himself in the national spotlight.

Why do the people who pay his salary -- and we know who they are ­-- keep funding his campaign of self-promotion?
