This has been posted in other places, but some miss the point to this. Her defense of it is that there is no shame in Barack wearing “his native clothing…the clothing of his country”. Excuse me Miss Tubbs Jones, but Barack Obama’s native country is THE UNITED STATES. In order to run for POTUS it has to be, or are you that ignorant to not know the Constitution? He wears his fucking native clothing every single day you dumb-ass.

Interesting that she combines her defense of “hey, no big deal showing him wearing some cool clothes of his native land” with “we do not condone the conduct”. Interesting indeed. This clip reminded me of Mark Penn saying “cocaine” over and over again – innocently of course. 😉

Careful Miss Tubbs Jones. You are swimming in dangerous political waters here. Your district is watching and I’m going to guess that they are going to vote very differently from the way you have decided to endorse. This is going to get embarrassing for you even if you don’t make an ass out of yourself on national teevee, so you would be best advised to avoid such insult to what is sure to be injury come March 4th.

  • Eric–you going to the rally tomorrow?

  • @1: I am planning on it. Haven’t heard back on credentials though.

    The Honorable Stephanie Tubbs Jones
    The United States House of Representatives

    Dear Congresswoman Stephanie Tubbs Jones,

    I am writing regarding your recent comments about United States Senator, and Presidential Candidate Barack Obama. You seem to be unaware of his biography.

    I would like to suggest the following resources. First is his Senate Web Page. You will notice that it mentions that Senator Obama was born in Hawaii in 1961. Even at that time, Hawaii was part of the United States. Hard to believe, huh?

    So perhaps when you mentioned Senator Obama’s native garb, just perhaps you were not referring to the Somali ensemble, but instead a grass skirt.

    Since I’m writing, I thought perhaps I’d point out to you the requirements to be the President of the United States of America. I’m sure your staff can find a copy of The United States Constitution. It’s an imperfect document, amended over time to fix problems like votes for woman and full citizenship of African Americans. Perhaps you’ve heard of these issues? Anyway, if you do find a copy of it, look at Article II, Section 1. In it the writers listed the criteria for being the president of the United States.

    No person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any Person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty-five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States.

    It’s the first part that I’d like to discuss. Now I ask you… if Barack Obama was a native Somali as you suggest, would he even be eligible for the office of The President of the United States of America? I think not.

    I think the more appropriate question is for you, Congresswoman: Have you no shame at all? You owe Senator Obama an apology.

    Sincerely yours,
