On Thursday our new administration took another huge step forward in appointing a Special Assistant to the President on Disability Policy. Vice President Joe Biden named Kareem Dale to the new position, stating he will have "direct access" to the President. Biden went on to declare the impetus to secure equal rights for people with disabilities a "civil rights movement", elaborating with "This is about to change the attitude, change the attitude of governments, change the attitude of individuals....This is a movement to make sure that we guarantee that all peoples in the world have the opportunity to succeed to the degree they are capable."

Once again, reality has a well-known liberal -- and deeply human -- bias. Smell the common sense.
