(Yeeesh! Yo grandma, button up eh? You really ain’t that hot.)
Lily white, high profile, uber liberal New York Democrat congresswoman Carolyn Maloney allowed the vile and vulgar ‘N’ word to escape from her big mouth during an interview with the City Hall News website while yapping about her opponent, Kirsten Gillibrand, in the upcoming 2010 Senatorial race.
Naturally Al Sharpton, never one to miss an opportunity to open his pie hole jumped into the fray saying, “The quote by Congresswoman Maloney if accurate is alarming and disturbing at best,” he said in a statement. “No public official even in quoting someone else should loosely use such an offensive term and should certainly challenge someone using the term to him or her.”
There is Carolyn Maloney, ripping into Kirsten Gillibrand broad and hard for voting against the two stimulus bills and for changing her positions on several core Democratic issues, sounding out her case on the fly as, “It’s the NRA, it’s immigration, it’s all these other things. In fact, I got a call from someone from Puerto Rico, said [Gillibrand] went to Puerto Rico and came out for English-only [education]. And he said, ‘It was like saying n—r to a Puerto Rican,’” she said, using the full racial slur. “I don’t know—I don’t know if that’s true or not. I just called. I’m just throwing that out. All of her—well, what does she stand for?”
Oh snap! Probably not the smoothest of moves for someone about ready to announce their intention to run against Gillibrand who has the strong support of both the senior Senator from New York Chucky Shumer and his good buddy occupying our White House, Barack Hussein Obama.
Not how you want to kick off a Democratic U.S. senatorial campaign with the weight of the party against you.
Not how you want to make your debut as the wiser head who felt duty-bound to challenge an unseasoned rookie upstart.
Not how you want to talk at all under any circumstances.
Rep. Carolyn Maloney’s use of the N-word in criticizing the record of Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand was an unbecoming, intemperate lapse. The mitigating consideration is that Maloney did not in any way intend to offend.
She was just dumb.

Now in fairness she did state she was quoting someone else when she dropped the ‘N’ bomb but what isn’t clear is why she didn’t substitute an acceptable method to get her point across to the interviewer instead of using the full blown racial slur.
We all know that if a Republican were to commit the very same faux paus the left wingers, liberal media, Democrat politicians and every black activist in the country would be hollerin’ in the street for them to immediately step down from office and they wouldn’t let up until they got their wish.
A liberal white female politician on the other hand merely has to apologize and the whole thing just gets swept under the rug like it never happened.
That’s how we roll these days in the post racial world of an Obama presidency.
