Like Fudge on Rice By AARON GOLDSTEIN on 11.20.12
Would the Congressional Black Caucus be defending Susan Rice if her first name were Condoleezza?
Last Friday, Ohio Congresswoman Marcia Fudge made a most demagogic debut as the newly elected Chair of the Congressional Black Caucus. During a press conference, the three-term Democrat from the Buckeye state's 11th District criticized Senator John McCain for his criticisms of UN Ambassador Susan Rice:
There is a clear, a clear in my opinion, sexism and racism that goes with these comments that are being made by, unfortunately, Senator McCain and others.
For good measure, Fudge also said, "It is a shame that anytime something goes wrong, they pick on women and minorities."
Why yes, of course, that's exactly why McCain criticized Rice. McCain can't possibly be criticizing Rice because she made erroneous statements about the September 11th attacks in Benghazi on behalf of the Obama Administration. What other reason would McCain have for criticizing Rice other than she's black and a woman?
John McCain can be accused of many things. Being racist and sexist isn't amongst them. Unfortunately, McCain can't win for trying. Remember during the 2008 presidential race when McCain called Georgia Congressman and civil rights icon John Lewis one of his three greatest heroes at Rick Warren's Saddleback Forum? And how did Lewis repay McCain's kindness? He compared him to George Wallace.

McCain should resign and this idiot woman should go to hell.
GOP should start pushing for censure votes on fellow Senators and House Representatives that start bandying about accusations of sexism and racism.
