Geraldino Ferarro: Obama's Rise Is Affirmative Action Voting

Eh, I sweetened that. She said that if he weren't black, he wouldn't be in the position he's in.

I realize liberals aren't exactly bears for consistency, but how in the hell are the Democrats going to play the same "racial code words!" game on us in the general election when they themselves are using those "code words" now?

The Obama campaign accuses the Hillary campaign of an "insidious pattern" of racial appeals. Maybe, maybe not. (More maybe than maybe not.)

I'm just really wondering how the Democrats are going to cry shame, shame on us when the wife of the first black president herself stands accused.

Questions for debate: Is Ferraro right about Obama owing most of his success to his skin tone? And is Obama right about the Hillary camp employing an "insidious pattern" of racial attacks? And is Obama cynically crying "racism" at any negative comment about him in order to work the media refs and stop all uncomfortable examination of his paper-thin, doctrinaire liberal record?

Answer to all debate questions: Yes.

Well that was quick. Glad we took care of that.

Via Cuffy Meigs. I had to steal it. Had to.

I'll try to make up for that by directing traffic to this, which is is positively surreal -- Iranian policewomen in full burkas rappelling down the sides of buildings like frumpy ninjas.

The Man, as in The Black Man, Always Be Keepin' Me Down: Ferarro squeals she's being picked on because she's white.

Well, if she means that being white, her words are subject to a level of media and political scrutiny bordering on the paranoid and oppressive... Welcome to the party, pal.

And you thought that "D" after your name was always going to protect you, huh?
