I was sitting in the doctor's office, waiting for a minor procedure today, and they had CNN on. I wasn't really paying attention to the shit they were shoveling under the cover of "news" - at least not until I heard the Changeling's voice - trying to flex. And when I looked up from my book, and realized he was talking to the Congressional Black Caucus - I felt that appalling, condescending "twinge" that I always feel when he's talking to, or about Black folk.
I turned to my husband and said, "What the hell?! How come he feels he can just talk to the CBC any kinda damned way - but not anybody else?!" (And dammit! Stop tryin' to channel MLK!) Slippers?? Really?!
To ask the question is to answer it (since he was talking - down - to the CBC!), but it seems I wasn't the only one feeling that "twinge":
CBC member Maxine Waters reacts to Obama: We're not complaining
While Maxine definitely needs to get her own legal and financial house in order regarding that OneUnited bailout cash (and she ain't the only one!) if she is to be respected for NOT playing the same damned games that her alabaster brethren play on the regular - I vigorously applaud the sister's comeback!
UPDATE: If, and/or when they hold these ethics hearings on Maxine Waters steering bailout money to OneUnited, she certainly needs to raise this issue: Perry has deep relationships with his campaign bank, despite bailout money
