And things were said and tears were shed, People

The above video is of Rep. Pete Sessions of TX, who was supposedly the person who said he could not stand to look at President Obama at some point in a White House meeting. And I don’t even know if it is true. I won’t pretend I know. Let’s just call him the Schroedinger’s Racist, and posit that unless the White House meeting in question was actually recorded, we simply can not infer from the available data whether he actually expressed the opinion that he could not stand the President and will not know until that event can be observed.

Some people might allege that based upon a priori data, we can reasonably speculate that Pete Sessions is in fact just the sort of person who might have made a disrespectful remark regarding the President. Others might state that the authoritative denial of the White House spokespeople negates the likelihood that he said that thing—but reasonable people might also weigh the possibility that the remark exists as an inadmissible anecdote—not on the record, but having been heard by someone, just not in a fashion readily reproducible.

In other words, he may have said it, and have had it been officially unsaid. In fact, it may have been very necessary to do so, because in order for the aforementioned White House meeting to have been in effect, the actual authority of the holder of the office that the White House represents would have to be validated. The failure to recognize that authority would tend to corrupt the resulting exchange of the conversation.

And we have no particular reason to believe that the conversation was corrupted, do we?

I leave that logical exercise for the reader to determine on his/her/their own.

Some a posteriori evidence that Pete Sessions is a bigoted cracker:

In September 2010, Sessions remarked after watching the Princeton University men’s basketball team, “How often can you go see a bunch of white guys play basketball?” He also reportedly said that the players stayed entirely below the rim.  http://politi.co/bwEKzs

Less than two weeks after his “white guys” comments he made controversial comments about the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee giving money to and supporting, “African Americans like Sanford Bishop. And when you have to retreat back to ... your hard base you’re having to make tough decisions.”  http://bit.ly/1ihXonB

“Retreating back to your hard base . . . “?  What a HOWLER!

To me, the craziest part was when he said, “Look, we’re not French, we don’t surrender.”  What kind of mentality would make him say that?

No need to answer that…

Schroedinger’s Racist

LOL!

We can infer, from prior bad acts, that it is exactly the kind of thing he would say.
