"Shuck N' Jive Saxby" Is At It Again

After reading this, I honestly can't figure out if Repug Georgia Senator Saxby Chambliss is a moron, an arrogant egotist, or an unholy combination of both.

He tells us here that...

“There were an awful lot of African-Americans that voted for me (in the general election),” he said. “I’ve reached out to the African-American turnout, and I continue to do that.”
And how exactly does Chambliss “reach out to the African-American turnout”? Well, as noted here (h/t Think Progress), he warned his Cro-Magnon supporters prior to the general election that “the other folks are voting” (and if you figured out that that was code for Obama supporters in general and African-Americans in particular, then you win a free lawn jockey).

Yeah, I guess that counts for “reaching out” as far as Chambliss is concerned, the same way you “reach out” to an opponent before you try to flatten them with a right hook.

Oh, and just to refresh our memories, here is Chambliss in action…
