    This is perfectly accurate, so I'd say no. But if it were, what would he be trying to signal?

    Well, I come down on the "its a true statement" side as well, so I don't know. The usual suspects are calling it a dog whistle.

    When I read Anglo and sheriff, the Sheriff of Nottingham is exactly who I pictured.

    The English language has completely deteriorated in this country.

    The first definition of Anglo offered in Webster's is a white American. It's not until we get to the second or third definition that is "of, or pertaining to, England."

    Well, I wonder if he had invoked “Franco-American” while talking to people in Louisiana if they would say it was a dog whistle. He didn’t say white heritage so I have no problem with it.

    Brings to mind when a lawmaker a few years ago used the word reneging and people lost their minds.

    I think that was niggardly.

    And believe it or not, that was in 1999.

    Despite his past I'd give Sessions the benefit of the doubt on this. CNN needs to read up on history a bit more, though. The office was not always an elected one.

    It comes across as politically incorrect, but it accurate.

    County mounties and a few state police are pretty much it for LE around here.

    Whenever I see a sheriff's cruiser, which is not very often, I channel Bob Marley.
