You know it's a slow news day when Obama is criticized for not having a diverse enough cabinet

File this one under the "this must be true because it's too ridiculous to make up" file ...

Try this on for size: some on the left are criticizing President-Elect Obama for not having a diverse enough cabinet. Evidently, our first African-American President doesn't give a hoot about having a cabinet that looks like America.

On the day that Bill Richardson was nominated to be the next Secretary of Commerce, the Congressional Hispanic Caucus fired off a terse letter to the President-Elect which included the names of fourteen Hispanic candidates to fill the remaining eight cabinet spots, and some thinly veiled threats.

According to the Boston Globe: "The group's chairman, Representative Joe Baca of California, warned that Obama's agenda could be jeopardized if he doesn't nominate more Latinos. 'If it's just one, he's going to have to answer to a lot of the issues that come before us,' Baca told Bloomberg."

So we have the looney left haranguing Obama for keeping Gates at Defense and appointing Jim Jones as NSA, and now the Congressional Hispanic Caucus is threatening to derail his agenda if he doesn't appoint a few more cabinet members from their list. 

And all the while, the Republicans have been nothing but supportive of his transition.  Go figure.
