Sheldon Whitehouse got caught with his tighty-whities showing, again. He’s a member of an all-white club and doesn’t seem to be in a big rush to move off his sandy white beach. He was asked about this years ago. Nothing. Sheldon kinda likes it – at least that’s the impression I get.
Senator Whitehouse, why are you still a member of Bailey’s?
Is it just me, but when I hear the name “Sheldon” I picture a dude wearing a white fedora and a white suit, sipping a mint julep and asking the help for some tea cakes?
Senator White…house was asked about his membership and his response was predictably predictable, and dismissive.
“It’s a long tradition in Rhode Island and there are many of them and I think we just need to work our way through the issue.” Oh. okay – work through the issue.
Imagine Cocaine Mitch belonging to an all-white beach club and offering the same platitude.
Maybe we should offer Senator Whiteshoes some grace. These things take time, don’t you know. “Why, the cabana boy is black, and so is the waiter serving me mint julep on the veranda. George? Fetch me my beach slippers, George. I don’t want to burn my feet.”
