Strange stereotypes

CNN reports that Rep. Alcee Hastings (D-Fl) is promoting stereotypes:
Rep. Alcee Hastings told an audience of Jewish Democrats Wednesday that they should be wary of Republican VP nominee Sarah Palin because “anybody toting guns and stripping moose don’t care too much about what they do with Jews and blacks.”
His Democratic audience cheered his bigotry.

Alcee Hastings was a judge until 1989 when he was removed from office after being impeached and convicted on bribery and perjury charges.  With a background in bribery and perjury, it was only natural that he would run for congress where he has served since 1992 and where he has risen to the position of Senior Democratic Whip.
