Fortunately we haven't heard much from Georgia Senator Saxby Chambliss on the health care debate but leave it to him to get his hidden racist comments in when most appropriate. Seems he has some advice for Obama:
Sen. Saxby Chambliss (R-GA) said today that, because of angry town hallers and the like, President Obama should show “humility” when he speaks to Congress Wednesday night.
“What you’re seeing is folks on my side anxious to see what the president has to say tomorrow night,” Chambliss said. “I think he’s gonna have to express some humility based on what we’ve seen around the country this August and that’s not his inclination.”
If you are not from the South I will translate that for you...
"Folks on my side" = white people
"express some humility" = let us know he knows his place
"not his inclination" = he's an uppity negro
Here is another example of what the health care reform debate has devolved into. The wingnuts, and conservative GOP types are standing on the sidelines and slinging shit balls onto the field. Throw enough and somebody will get hit or at least step in one. The real debate is going on among the Democrats and the progressives on the Internet as there is sure as hell nothing constructive coming from the right and the media are doing their best to stir the shit. So here is the number 2 asshole from Georgia slinging out a shit ball that when decoded is just a another way of calling Obama "uppity" much like fellow Georgian Lynn Westmoreland.
I think sticking with Paul Krugman's advice is a better choice.
