Are the Clintons playing me like a fiddle- this comment makes a lot of sense:
The Clintons aren’t racists, and that’s not the point. But the Clintons have done the math and they know they aren’t going to get the black vote this time. They need something else, and that something else is to make this black v. white in the most innocent ways they can.
Has anyone stopped to ask themselves what bamboozling scum like Johnson is doing over in the Clinton camp in the first place?
Who is Johnson, exactly. Also from the comments, this link, which was very enlightening.
Putting aside the vapid and gushing nonsense from Obama supporters, which will irritate me until the end of the second Obama term, am I being played as a fool by the Clinton camp?

And then you have this from the comments:
Clinton? Really? Clinton is dragging down the dialogue? This is the shit that the modern day MSM will do to politics in general. Hillary Clinton – on the eve of the NH primaries – sits down at a town hall meeting and wonks the fuck out. People applaud her to a first place finish, and she just barely scrapes by Golden Boy Obama.
So now, as the media scratches its head wondering how Hillary could have won, the only conclusion they can come to is “OMFG! BRADLEY EFFECT! EVERYONE’S A RACIST!” And the only thing that gets reported on for the next week is tan lines.
Hey, fuckwads, perhaps Hillary Clinton won on her Health Care Plan™. You remember the Health Care Plan™, right? The central platform of the Democratic Party in ‘08? The only thing more potent than their Not Being In Iraq For A Century platform? The issue that touches the core of the party’s Big Responsible Government message?
Hillary’s got a comprehensive strategy. Obama – bless his heart, I love him – doesn’t. So what do we talk about between NH and Michigan? Negrophobia and who’s got it.
And that’s Clinton’s fault. Because she just sat right down and twisted Chris Matthew’s arm on this. And Karl Rove – saint that he is – couldn’t resist the desire to talk less about important policy issues and more about baiting bullshit.
Anyone who buys into this “Who’s the real racist?” bullshit is a tool, I’m sorry. We’ve got Bush itching to push the Go button on nuking Iran because someone’s jetski moistened an American Sailor. McCain/Lie-berman have begun the “Mission Accomplished—For Real This Time” drum beat. Newt Gingrich continues to get air time talking about government reform. And here we are talking about how racist the Democrats are.
Congratulations folks. Conservative Media just PWN’D you again. Enjoy your wetsuit.
