Texas Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee was apparently picked to haul the old race card slop bucket onto the House floor last week. The Washington Times summarized with some of her remarks:
“I am particularly sensitive to the fact that only this president — only this one, only this one — has received the kind of attacks and disagreements and inability to work, only this one. Read between the lines. What is different about this president that should put him in a position that he should not receive the same kind of respectful treatment of when it is necessary to raise the debt limit in order to pay our bills, something required by both statute and the 14th amendment?”
“…I do not understand what I think is the maligning and maliciousness of this president. Why is he different? And in my community, that is the question that we raise. In the minority community that is the question that is being raised.”
“Why is this president being treated so disrespectfully? Why has the debt limit been raised 60 times? Why did the leader of the Senate continually talk about his job is to bring the president down to make sure he is unelected?” (Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, 7-15-11, House of Representatives floor)
I like the Congresswoman’s framing. But let me replace the picture with an accurate one. I am particularly sensitive to the fact that only this president—only this one, only this one—besmirches and belittles opponents with attacks and disagreements and inability to work, only this one. Only this president, only this one, only this one

Yes, Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee, we are on to the game. Do not misunderstand, just as the President’s moral authority is gone so is any moral authority of your race card slop bucket.
