And class war is total. Our Arkansas congressmen's colleague, Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner, a Wisconsin Republican, has announced that Michelle Obama's butt is too big. (Too black for Sensenbrenner's taste too, we imagine, though he bit his tongue at that point.) Hillary and Chelsea Clinton's looks were mocked by Republican officeholders, and so were Eleanor Roosevelt's. Can anyone remember a Democratic congressman or senator making cruel fun of a Republican president's wife or daughter's appearance? Rudeness has become part of the Republican playbook. Lincoln was their last gentleman.
