"“Uppity” Westmoreland"

Rep. Lynee Westmoreland (R-GA) thinks Barack Obama is “uppity.” And it seems he also doesn’t think “uppity” is a racist term:

I’ve never heard that term used in a racially derogatory sense. It is important to note that the dictionary definition of ‘uppity’ is ‘affecting an air of inflated self-esteem —- snobbish.’ That’s what we meant by uppity when we used it in the mill village where I grew up.

In other news, Rep. Westmoreland thinks you are very, very stupid.
