Oh Charlie, Charlie…

U.S. Rep. Charlie Melancon (D-Napoleonville), potential Democrat candidate for governor, shot himself and his party in the foot... and elsewhere.

Read about it here, but this is the infamous snip:

“U.S. Rep. Charlie Melancon of Napoleonville said Democrats need a centrist, white candidate to beat Jindal.”

Good job, Charlie. Keep. It. Up.

I am not surprised by this at all. Go read Michael Zak's "Back to Basics for the Republican Party". You will see the Republicans have always been the true champions of civil rights.

Like you, Gena, I’m not at all surprised by Melancon’s hypocrisy, bigotry and so on. What surprises me about this, however, is that Melancon was arrogant enough (dumb enough?) to actually articulate what the Dems often privately think *in an interview*, for cryin’ out loud. That it was printed, albeit buried in the piece, is more surprising still.
