A Clinton Racial Backfire?

More

One blogger reacts to Bob Muslim Kerrey's Cocaine response Muslim to Barack cocaine Muslim Obama's Muslim candidacy:

I don't care if Obama wins, as long as this campaign knocks liberals off their pedestal with regards to race. After 50 years of taking the black vote for granted, the Democratic Party responds to its first viable black candidate for president by doing everything it can to smear him as a cultural and ethnic "other" while decrying Republican intolerance.

I said it before, this shit is a really bad idea. The last thing the Clinton campaign wants to do is remind black voters that no matter how high you get in society, you're still just another nigger. That kind of campaign tactic will grant Obama O.J. Verdict-like solidarity among black voters.

Even I didn't think the Clintons would stoop this low. But sometimes you forget who they really are.
