Did Saxby Chambliss obliquely call Barack Obama an "uppity n----?"
Posted by Jill | 9:17 PM
I report, you decide:
Sen. Saxby Chambliss (R-GA) said today that, because of angry town hallers and the like, President Obama should show "humility" when he speaks to Congress Wednesday night.

"What you're seeing is folks on my side anxious to see what the president has to say tomorrow night," Chambliss said. "I think he's gonna have to express some humility based on what we've seen around the country this August and that's not his inclination."

The quality or condition of being humble.

Nope, I don't see a racial qualifier anywhere in that definition.

Just in the gal posting.

You have obviously never been in the south or have any clue as to southern culture and southern euphemisms. As a Mississippian by injection, I think Jill hit the nail right on the head.

OBLIQUE? Hardly.

When the fuck did anyone tell Bush to be humble before any of his speeches, Serr8ed? Link, please.

And y'all know that Saxby is just the epitome of humility (like all white Southern conservative men).
