Race-Baiting Scumbag of the Day

Senator Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI):

They are desperate to break this president. They have ardent supporters who are nearly hysterical at the very election of President Barack Obama. The birthers, the fanatics, the people running around in right-wing militia and Aryan support groups, it is unbearable to them that President Barack Obama should exist.

Says the morally upright individual who voted in the dead of night, on the last weekend before Christmas, to pass legislation that is so unpopular that members of his own party had to be bribed with hundreds of millions of taxpayers' dollars in order to secure their votes.

Why am I not shocked to see a so-called "progressive" member of Congress spewing such nonsensical and racially-divisive rhetoric?

Seriously, Sheldon, the race card is so 2008.
