More Crackers for Clinton

I don't plan on voting for any Democrat in November, but Hillary Clinton's campaign sure makes me want to vote for Obama. Her consistent race baiting throughout the primaries is a disgusting bulwark for racism in the US at the same time that Obama's success points to the potential, at least, for a blow against it. Here's the latest, from Rep. Geraldine Ferraro:

An unapologetic Geraldine Ferraro said Wednesday morning that her comments about the electoral impact of Barack Obama's race have been taken out of context, and that she stands by her words. Ferraro stirred controversy with her recent remarks that Obama's campaign was successful because he was black..."Any time anybody does anything that in any way pulls this campaign down and says let's address reality and the problems we're facing in this world, you're accused of being racist, so you have to shut up," she told the (Torrance, California) Daily Breeze. "Racism works in two different directions. I really think they're attacking me because I'm white. How's that?"

This poor old lady seems to be confused about what racism is. I think to explain it clearly to her, the following should happen. Rep. Ferraro can be driving along in her car some day, when she is pulled over by a police officer. Soon another squad car pulls up, so there are now four officers standing around her vehicle. They ask her to step out of the car, and proceed to stomp a mud hole in her ass. As they are walking away, one of the cops says "That is what it is like to be attacked because of your color."
