Herenton Drops Cotton Card on Cohen

The mayor strikes again..
“Mr. Cohen is not a part of the working class,” Herenton asserted. “He never worked for hourly wages. He never chopped cotton for three dollars a day.”
How many people in Memphis have chopped cotton? Are only former cotton choppers qualified to be congressmen? Do only former cotton choppers get a pass when acting uncivil on the street with their opponents? Just wondering.

If Memphis sends this cartoon character to Washington it might be the final embarrassment for Left Tennessee. Funny, he says the district needs a black person because there aren't any black people representing the state, well, there's a black person running! Not sure she's ever chopped cotton, though.
