Yesterday Rep. Lynn Westmoreland (R-Ga.) took a break from sippin' lemonade on his front porch to jaw a spell with some pencil-pushin' pals, and soon enough talk turned to them current events…
Westmoreland was discussing vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin's speech with reporters outside the House chamber and was asked to compare her with Michelle Obama.
"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."
Yessir, that's what he said. Uppity. U-p-p-i-t-y. Goodness gracious, don't these reporters know you never question the word of a Southern Gentleman?
