William Jefferson: I Have a Dreamsicle!
Posted by: Jon Henke on Friday, June 16, 2006

I have a dream that my four children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character. — Martin Luther King, Jr. August 28, 1963
Civil Rights crusades ain't what they used to be...
Jefferson also raised race in his letter to Pelosi. "When an African American member of an exclusive committee is asked to resign his committee because of news reports or allegations of wrongdoing, it gives the appearance of unfairness and even racial discrimination if another member continues serving on an exclusive committee under Justice Department investigation as well, particularly if the other member is white, and is not subject to the same treatment," he wrote.
Jefferson is not being judged by the color of his skin, but by the content of his refrigerator.

Uh, that "other member", Alan Mollohan, resigned his post voluntarily. You, OTOH, began playing "Lets Make A Deal" and had to be forced out, ya joik!

Man, am I glad I don’t have to be judged by the content of my refrigerator.

That was hysterical, Jon.

Excellent line. I am jealous.
(I would have said this sooner, but I was busy cleaning out my refrigerator. Just in case. You can’t be too careful.)
