Remember how yesterday I said something like this about Senator Hillary Clinton’s campaign?
If Clinton were running a campaign that did not consistently appeal to lowest common denominator Republican talking points and to the worst aspects of American racism, I’d happily encourage her to carry on. As it is, it’s become a ginormous headache.
How nice of Clinton to provide us with a fresh example.
“There was just an AP article posted that found how Sen. Obama’s support among working, hard-working Americans, white Americans, is weakening again, and how whites in both states who had not completed college were supporting me.”
“There’s a pattern emerging here,” she said.
Em-phas-sis mine. I heard it on the radio this morning, driving along with a kind of drop-jaw stupor, so I’m surprised that I’m not wrapped around a tree right now. But Barry’s excellent round-up of outrage, annoyance and analysis reminded me of it, so I thought it best to pass it on. It’s actually really good reading, quite informative, and amusing – all necessary antidotes to the poison.
