After posting my last piece, I just had to say that. That’s all for now.
UPDATE: OK, Maybe that’s not all for now. Too bad Zsa Zsa didn’t use the Driving While Hungarian defense.
UP-UPDATE: Looks like someone named Mantis was the first to call her the Georgia Congresswoman Zsa Zsa McKinney in a comment to Wizbang on March 31, 2006 @ 12:51. (I googled “Zsa Zsa McKinney” after posting this.) Drat! And I thought I was the first. Kudos, Mantis!
UP-UP-UPDATE: Looks like I was a little hasty, as Treebeard might say. Dan S. also called her Zsa Zsa McKinney on March 31 while conservativeman (anonymous) used that nickname on March 30 @ 12:22 PM. Laurence Simon, however, seems to have beaten him by 22 minutes. Kudos, Laurence!
A politician who cynically employs racially-charged rhetoric in order to garner maximum political advantage while at the same time poisoning race relations. The Jim Crow South used to be full of such types a half-century ago. They were white. Perhaps it’s a measure of progress that the same tactics are now available to demagogues of every race, although certainly better progress would be for politicians finally to outgrow the use of such cheap stunts to advance and protect their miserable careers.
