Macaca Moment!: Racist Pastor Supporting Republican President Announces To Denomination That A Black Man Can't Be Elected President; Congregation Shouts Approval

Damn, this is going to hurt.

Oh, wait, no it won't. The media won't cover it at all. Because the remark wasn't said to a Republican candidate. It was said to Bill Clinton, supporting his wife.

Couple of points for the sake of fairness. First, Clinton responded appropriately enough:

Clinton responded, "First of all, as an American, I have to tell you I hope you're not right."

Second, of course, the story was reported by the MSM-- barely. Fournier writes it up for his AP semi-blog.

Still, I tend to think the coverage here would be slightly more intense if it had been a Republican addressing this church.

In related news, Clinton accused Obama of executing a "hit job" on himself and his pretend wife:

A poisonous new exchange erupted on the Democratic campaign trail Wednesday as former president Bill Clinton accused his wife's chief rival Barack Obama of a political "hit job."

Hillary Clinton insisted that Democratic wounds would heal in time for the party to recapture the White House in November's election, but the bad blood was spilt anew as Obama himself came out firing against his tag-team opponents.

The running battles on the Democratic stump have sparked disquiet among party grandees heading into South Carolina's Democratic primary on Saturday and a slew of contests in more than 20 states on "Super Tuesday," February 5.

But the former president, stumping in South Carolina on his wife's behalf, hurled a venomous new broadside against Obama.

"I never heard a word of public complaint when Mr. Obama said Hillary was not truthful, no character, was poll-driven," he told startled reporters.

"When he put out a hit job on me at the same time he called her the senator from Punjab, I never said a word," he said, referring to an Obama campaign memo last year that attacked the Clintons' links to the Indian-American community.

"Shame on you!" the former president exclaimed, berating the reporters for picking up on Obama's attacks instead of focusing on the issues that he said mattered, such as the faltering US economy.

Just a little reminder that we're not the only ones having a bruising, bloodying primary process.
