GOP Rep Wishes Obamas Would Focus More On Bowing, Scraping

TWO PEOPLE WHO CLEARLY DO NOT KNOW THEIR PLACE Obamas

Pretend to be surprised here:

Georgia Republican Rep. Lynn Westmoreland used the racially-tinged term “uppity” to describe Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama Thursday.

Westmoreland was discussing vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin’s speech with reporters outside the House chamber and was asked to compare her with Michelle Obama.

“Just from what little I’ve seen of her and Mr. Obama, Sen. Obama, they’re a member of an elitist-class individual that thinks that they’re uppity,” Westmoreland said.

Asked to clarify that he used the word “uppity,” Westmoreland said, “Uppity, yeah.”

Ah, Republicans. Still, we suppose it’s a slight improvement from the spring, when they were calling him “boy.” Hell, come January they may have evolved enough to use the much more sensitive “colored.” Well, we can dream, right?
