Update On Ferarro, Why She’s Right
Posted by bmac on March 13, 2008
Well, there you go. Can’t mention race. Can’t talk about the obvious, lest you be branded a racist. Just the fact that this is a “furor” proves her point. Even being a woman and a Democrat doesn’t get her a pass.
The Clinton campaign confirms Geraldine Ferraro has stepped down from her role on the finance committee of Sen. Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign after making racially charged remarks about Sen. Barack Obama.
“Racially charged remarks.” Wow. Better watch your mouth.
McCain’s strategists are gonna have to parse every single word that comes out of his mouth for the next eight months. I bet they’re putting together a list of key words that cannot leave his lips. He’ll mess up though, and say something innocuous like “Black American,” and will be treated like he’s the friggen Grand Dragon of the KKK. I actually feel sorry for him, for all the landmines he’s gonna have to navigate his way through for the rest of the year.
Good luck debating real issues, this entire campaign is going to be based on how not to offend Obama.
Not only that, but like Hilary, McCain will have to defend Obama himself, if one of his people accidentally utter a word or phrase that’s verboten.
Dance PC Monkeys. Dance.
