IS that racist? US Democrat James Clyburn’s hears accusations that UN Ambassador Susan Rice is incompetent. The National Journal reports:

When asked about Rice on CNN’s Starting Point on Tuesday, Clyburn said that words like “lazy” and “incompetent,” which have been used to describe black members of the administration, including Rice and President Obama himself, are reminiscent of language used to undermine minorities in decades past

“You know, these are code words,” Clyburn said. “We heard them during the campaign. During this recent campaign, we heard Senator Sununu calling our president lazy, incompetent—these kinds of terms that those of us, especially those of us who were grown and raised in the South, we would hear these little words and phrases all of our lives, and we’d get insulted by them.”

James Taranto muses:

Here’s a 2010 headline from the lefty “Obama Takes a Shot at Bush’s Incompetence in His Katrina Speech.” 

Was George Bush black?
