Senator, your white sheet is showing. Re: Sotomayor challenge blows up in Sessions' face.

Oo-whee, that was some puh-roud southern-fried-racism, Senator Sessions. That's the republican party now, isn't it? The changing ethnic makeup of America from lily white to everything but, has got the bigoted, powers that "were," losing their little minds. Right, Mr. Secession? Most caucasian-americans have no idea what the term, "white privilege" means, let alone that they have benefited inestimably from it for their entire lives. We "enlightened" white folk; i.e. culturally sensitives, sometimes seem as rare as republicans at a Michael Moore film. Mr. Secession was just speaking in his "traditional," southern-racist style. I mean, how can there possibly be a race war without whipping up the poor whites in the south? That's the time "honored," racist tradition. Of course, racists and Dick Cheney and his whole, "world domination" clique are desirous of any war. A race war would be the most expedient. That, so they can then use their private military, Blackwater, and the religious zealots and white racists in our military and intelligence apparatus, (who are now practically a scary separate branch!) to seize complete control of our country. As their German role models did. (Abu Ghraib was just practice!) A race war would work SO perfectly for them. Just one more page from their "national socialist"(NAZI) playbook. Pay Attention. They are following it to a T. And, once again, the poor, the working class whites and the southern racists are just another, "pawn in their game." Right, Senator? That's the damn trick that never fails. -rainj

First Hint

“I had to quit my job over that tornado.” Obie resolutely told me in 1981, sitting at a long table in the employee break room. A room that, unnoticed by me, was now going gradually silent.

“That tornado,” being the monstrous F4 funnel that struck Wichita Falls, Texas in 1979, killing 42 people, causing over 1,700 injuries, destroying over 3,000 homes and leaving 20,000 homeless.

With my tactfulness, perhaps, needing a little tweaking, there in my first day as a newbie to the brand new operating unit for the, “phone company” (and new resident of Wichita Falls). I asked, “You had to quit your job over the tornado? How’d that happen? Did it hit where you worked?” (I usually asked three to four questions at a time, back then.) Obie, slowly shaking his head, responded, "No... It didn’t. I... guess that might’ve been some part of the problem.”

“Part of the problem…?” I was stumped. Until Obie, who was black, told me that since the tornado had missed the, " black part of town," instead wreaking havoc on the most affluent (and white) areas, that the, "white folks" said the, “black folks” (see nig**r) had brought it… BROUGHT the Tornado ON the White People!"

Picking up my chin, I nervously giggled, “Oh man, that’s crazy!" Obie, his voice hollow as if from some deep well, solemnly answered, “Yeah, but the white workers on my job harassed me so much over it, every day, that I finally had to quit that job.”

I was completely shocked and spouted, incredulously, “I can’t believe that. That is just nuts!”

Seeing a warning in Obie's face, I then began to glance around and noticed that, unlike me, all the other, “white folks” sitting at that long table seemed to be swelling up like toads.

Startled by the sudden whip of negative energy, I instinctively acted to snag that energy and deflate those fat toads:

With an exaggerated conspiratorial tone, combined with a, “pre-Palin” wink, I turned to Obie, saying, Soto Voce, “Well, you know Obie, I DID see a picture of it and… it WAS black.” Obie’s eyes went wide, he sucked in his breath and then, as I cackled, he joined in, looking terribly relieved and surprised by my attitude, or lack thereof.

But...we laughed alone.
None of the toads croaked in.
First hint of things to come.
