Here he goes again...in an interview yesterday, the Senate President Pro Tem said,
"Immigration is a red meat issue. You`ve got all these crackers down in San Diego taking on the governor. Even the governor was shocked," he said, referring to Schwarzenegger`s assessment of the heated rhetoric surrounding the immigration debate in that part of the state. "Those aren`t the people I represent. But there is no point in getting into a pitched, vocal battle with these people. ... If you start getting engaged with these people, you get tar all over yourself." [Perata calls bill`s opponents `crackers` by Lynda Gledhill, San Francisco Chronicle, August 4, 2006]
Crackers? Crackers? Perhaps the Senator is getting public speaking tips from Congresswoman Cynthia "I`m a BLACK woman!" McKinney.
As for "getting tar" all over himself, that may not be such a bad idea—it might glue his racist mouth shut.
Any bets on whether the MSM (or any one of our ten million "civil rights" groups) will condemn his remarks?
