From Pandagon: Georgia Republican Rep. Lynn Westmoreland calls Obama ‘uppity’
The GOP’s white sheet is showing (again). There’s a reason the RNC has hit a record low in black attendees at its convention.

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."

There it is. There's what they really think of him. It's stated in no uncertain terms right in that paragraph: When they call Sen. Obama "elitist", they're really saying he's some "uppity negro" (I won't use the word they're REALLY really thinking).

So, anyone else want to say that there's no racism against Obama? Anyone at all?
