Shocking no one, segregationist Trent Lott removed himself from Senate Majority Leader-to-be status, which should have allowed the tempest to blow itself out. But no, because there is at least one member of Congress seems to follow Uncle Trent lemming-like over the precipice. Check out this numb-nut:
- Responding to Sen. Trent Lott’s recent comments, Rep. Cass Ballenger told a newspaper he has had “segregationist feelings” himself after conflicts with a black colleague.
Ballenger, a North Carolina Republican, said former Rep. Cynthia McKinney, D-Ga., so provoked him that “I must I admit I had segregationist feelings.” “If I had to listen to her, I probably would have developed a little bit of a segregationist feeling,” Ballenger told The Charlotte Observer in Friday’s editions. “But I think everybody can look at my life and what I’ve done and say that’s not true.
“I mean, she was such a bitch,” he said.
Uh huh – she may be a raging bitch, but what does that have to do with race, or segregation? Is she more of a bitch because she is black? Does Ballenger want to separate himself from all black people because McKinney is a bitch? Or just from black bitches? Would he want to separate himself from all white people if he met a white bitch? Son of a biscuit some people are stupid – conceivably Ballenger is even more stupid than Lott: Lott’s remarks CREATED the tempest that Ballenger then pissed into.
