Armed Liberal notes the silence on Rep. Corrine Brown's recent "All you white men look the same" comments. And he makes a very good point.
This isn't some community organizer, struggling against The Man. This is a woman who speaks with the authority of the House of Representatives of the United States, and who writes laws that I have to live under.
And so far, she's gotten a 'bye' on it. Someone explain to me how I can demand, with a straight face, that Dixiecrat Trent Lott or Jew-baiter (and MBNA shill) James Moran be punished when she isn't, or how I can give moral - as opposed to political - standing to those who only bust one side for the same crime.
No offence, A.L., but the simple answer is this: You Can't. At least not in the eyes of those who look at such things.
Hat tip to Instapundit.
