Thursday, February 26, 2004 Miami & Ft. Lauderdale News, Weather, Dolphins & More (via OpinionJournal - Best of the Web Today): "[Assistant Secretary of State Roger] Noriega later told [U.S. Rep. Corrine] Brown: 'As a Mexican-American, I deeply resent being called a racist and branded a white man,' according to three participants.
Brown then told him 'you all look alike to me,' the participants said."

I have to agree with Taranto on this one. If she were a Republican, she'd be drummed out of Congress. Also, if she were white and had said that about blacks, no spokesman would get away with dismissing it as: "I think it was an emotional response of her frustration with the administration," said David Simon, a spokesman for the Jacksonville Democrat.
