Funny how they dont seem to mind when SHE says it. The real story is, that she carpetbagged her way into new york, and sold her representation to the highest bidder


Washington May 18th - “I am delighted to be the Senator from Punjab as well as from New York” said Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton and the former first lady of the United States of America. She received a standing ovation and thunderous applause from the Sikh Americans who had gathered in the Senate side of the Capitol Hill on May 17th for the Sikh American Heritage Dinner Event in Washington, DC. The Sikh Council on Religion and Education (SCORE), based in the nation’s capital organized this event

Aren't New Yorkers the ones who should be outraged?

Since when did it become ok for a senator to introduce themselves as anyone but the senator of the state that elected them???

Here's the latest

Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama referred to as "stupid" and "caustic" his campaign's memo last week that implied rival Hillary Clinton's investments in India made the her fit to represent the south Asian country.

"It was a screw-up on the part of our research team," Obama, a U.S. senator from Illinois, said during a meeting today with Des Moines Register editors and reporters. "It wasn't anything I had seen or my senior staff had seen."


"I thought it was stupid and caustic and not only didn't reflect my view of the complicated issue of outsourcing ... it also didn't reflect the fact that I have longstanding support and friendships within the Indian-American community."

Obama said, "I take responsibility for it, as does our campaign. and we quickly apologized and are communicating that in various circles around the country."

well, if Obama's not going to defend himself, then it sure as heck isnt my job to

what a loser

Nicole Belle of Crooks and Liars criticized Obama for this as well. Your search won't pick up everything (note that this post didn't use the word "punjab").

The memo was more directly anti-Indian than anything I've seen recently in contemporary politics.

Because insinuating that 'Indians' might possibly have a little political 'pull' is much more 'bigoted' than referencing donut shops and gas stations(ala Joe Biden and Hillary Clinton)?

As a pathetic old fogey at 42 yrs of age, I can appreciate that you younguns aren't quite old enough to remember the bad old days of 2006 and 2004, respectively...
