Still amazing constituents by his ability to hold elected office despite being a disgraced, indicted and impeached former federal judge, Alcee Hastings is now shamelessly and pathetically race-baiting on Obama’s campaign trail:
“If Sarah Palin isn’t enough of a reason for you to get over whatever your problem is with Barack Obama, then you damn well had better pay attention,” Rep. Alcee Hastings of Florida said at a panel about the shared agenda of Jewish and African-American Democrats Wednesday. Hastings, who is African-American, was explaining what he intended to tell his Jewish constituents about the presidential race. “Anybody toting guns and stripping moose don’t care too much about what they do with Jews and blacks. So, you just think this through,” Hastings added as the room erupted in laughter and applause.
Such thought-provoking rhetoric.
