So...many Democrats have noted how the "elitism" argument leveled at the Obamas is thinly veiled racism, a code for "uppity" which has long been used to describe African-Americans who do not know their "place" (ie, who dare to ask to be treated like human beings).
The veil is officially off.
Representative Lynn Westmoreland (R-GA) said:
"Just from what little I’ve seen of her and Mr. Obama, Sen. Obama, they're a member of an elitist-class individual that thinks that they're uppity," Westmoreland said.
Asked to clarify that he used the word “uppity,” Westmoreland said, “Uppity, yeah.”
The response from the Obama campaign rocks: “Sounds like Rep. Westmoreland should be careful throwing stones from his candidate's eight glass houses,” said Obama spokesman Tommy Vietor.
