    By now you may have heard or read the shocking report of a white male airline passenger striking a black baby across the face for crying during the landing.

    “Jonah starts crying because he’s feeling the pressure in his ears,” Jessica Bennett, the toddler’s mother, told ABC News.

    The 60-year-old man told Bennett to “shut that (‘N word’) baby up,” and slapped the 2-year-old boy in his face as the plane prepared for landing, according to an affidavit.

    “I said, ‘What did you just say?’” Bennett explained to ABC News. “And he was so drunk that he fell onto my face, and his mouth moved over to my ear and he said it, just directly into my ear.”

    Obviously the assailant is some unwashed illiterate hillbilly.

    Hundley’s attorney told the Associated Press he will plead not guilty. Hundley has been suspended from his position as the president of Unitech Composites and Structures.

    Oh, it turns out he’s not a backwards yokel after all. He’s a Very Important Business LeaderTM, and exactly who (so we’re told) should have a disproportionate influence over our government on account of how reasonable, pragmatic, and wise he is.

    Bio: I grew up in Silver Spring, MD, and an adventurous streak led me to join the Navy. I moved to Arizona in 1997 after serving 10 years in the Navy to work in semi-conductor manufacturing. I got involved in national and Arizona politics in 2003. I ran for 2006 State Senate in Ahwatukee and was a Delegate to the 2008 Democratic National Convention. I now live in North Central Phoenix with my boyfriend, Mark, and our three dogs. I've been blogging for Democratic Diva since 2007 about local and national politics with a strong emphasis on women's issues.
