He's Only Winning Because He's Black!

And former representative Geraldine A. Ferraro (D-N.Y.) said Wednesday that because of his "radical" views, "if Jesse Jackson were not black, he wouldn't be in the race."
Oh, wait. That was 20 years ago. This year's quote was:
If Obama was a white man, he would not be in this position. And if he was a woman (of any color), he would not be in this position. He happens to be very lucky to be who he is. And the country is caught up in the concept.
Then, she actually "defends" herself with this:
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. Racism works in two different directions. I really think they're attacking me because I'm white. How's that?
At least I agree with her on one thing. About 3:25 in, she calls herself a lunatic:


Clinton refused to distance herself from Ferraro after the first remark, and that I know of, hasn't since the second, either. As a fundraiser and BFF of the Clintons, I can only agree with a commentator I saw last night who believes she's actually acting as a mouthpiece for Hillary, who can't say these things herself.

The thing is, every campaign will find itself associated with someone who is less than perfect, and who does or says something stupid, or just plain IS stupid. However, it seems to me that Hillary has surrounded herself with nothing but stupidity. It tells you a lot about the candidate when you look at those who are the closest to them, and it's looking like Hillary might just be dripping slime.

  1. Oh, the irony Misty. Do you think Mondale selected Ferrarro back in 1984 as his running mate because she was the most qualified individual to be Vice President? Is is just possible that she was selected because of her, ahem, gender?

    Ferrarro added little to the Mondale campaign against Reagan and you could plausibly argue that Mondale would have fared better with someone like Sam Nunn or Al Gore.

    But Mondale decided to break the gender barrier, and put Geraldine in the spotlight. And now she has the audacity to say this about Obama.

    Truly disgusting.

  2. If Obama is only doing well because he's black, how do you explain the results of Utah's primary?

    Ferraro is a relic of the past.

    We need change.
