Mike Honda: You Really Are The Man

Wednesday, March 17, 2010

Caught this news in my inbox and honestly - just makes me smile because it has to be said:

Graham, in a radio interview in his home state of South Carolina, lashed out at the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi, over her efforts to bring Democrats in line to approve health care reform, a top priority for President Barack Obama.

"Nancy Pelosi, I think, has got them all liquored up on sake and you know, they're making a suicide run here," Graham said.

Representative Mike Honda, who spent part of his childhood interned due to his Japanese origin, said that Graham was alienating Asian-Americans.

"I am disheartened that Senator Graham chose to use racially tinged rhetoric to express his opposition to health care reform," said Honda, who heads the Asian American caucus in Congress.

"There is a way to engage in healthy debate without alienating Asian-Americans, who are an important part of this democracy and health care reform," he said in remarks that he partially posted on Twitter.
And that's really all that needs to be said.
