“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,” Ferraro said. “Racism works in two different directions. I really think they’re attacking me because I’m white. How’s that?”
I’ll tell you how it is, Gerri. It’s a bone-headed statement, and again, really beneath you.
You weren’t attacked because you are white. You were attacked because your statement was so inaccurate and wrong-headed.
You’re really not doing any favors for your candidate, even if it might help her win a few votes among working-class white in PA.
But long-term, you’re helping to create some divisions in the party that won’t be healed easily, especially if your Mrs. Clinton is the nominee.
So, as we say in the blogosphere, Gerri, STFU!
