Shorter Sen. Saxby Chambliss (R-GA):

Just because he’s President doesn’t mean he’s allowed to get all uppity-like.

    Uppity is a word. Absent the racial thing it sounds like your basic give-and-take between Congress and the Executive.

    ‘course you can’t excerpt race in 2009: Chambliss might have chosen his words with more care.

    Maybe in a generation the race thing will mean about as much as ‘Catholic and Protestant’ did a few generations ago.

    You think? The problem is, he’s far from the only one… Quotes like these keep coming and coming.

    I’m guessing it (largely) will.

    This is pretty tame from someone who questioned his opponent’s patriotism. His opponent being a decorated veteran who lost three limbs serving his country and then went on to become head of Veteran’s Affairs and a US Senator. The man will way and do anything to gain power.

    True enough. I’d forgotten that he’d taken Max Cleland’s seat. It’s the context, though, that makes this sort of thing really disturbing.
