Troubled Waters

Along with her Congressional Black Caucus colleague, New York Democrat Rep. Charlie Rangel, it seems California Democrat Rep. Maxine Waters is also facing charges of serious ethics violations.

Standby for the accusations of racism.

But, you know, I think only a very few care anymore. I beginning to believe that we're crossing, if we haven't already crossed, some invisible threshhold in this country. It's not just that the charge of racism has suffered from overuse, like the boy crying wolf. It's that the boy has been cynically crying wolf. People not only don't believe him anymore, they resent him for it.

So, call me a racist if you like, if it makes you feel better, or superior. When you're done, let's get back to the issue at hand. Shall we?
