Bill Clinton Wants Obama to Bring More Coffee

Incredible, but not surprising. The nation recently learned about Sen. Harry Reid's racist remarks about Candidate Obama being light skinned and praising him for not using "negro dialect." That's gotten a lot of play in the media, as has the revelation of Rod Blagojevich having told Esquire Magazine that he considered himself to be "more black" than Obama. A third prominent Democrat has made racially offensive remarks about Obama, and his name is Bill Clinton. Clinton, you may recall, was widely called the nation's "first black president" by Democrats both Black and White. Hardee har. A new book, "Game Change: Obama and the Clintons, McCain and Palin, and the Race of a Lifetime," gives details an incident in which Clinton was "belittling Obama in a manner that deeply offended [Sen. Ted] Kennedy. Recounting the conversation later to a friend, Teddy fumed that Clinton had said, A few years ago, this guy would have been getting us coffee." (Emphasis added.) That's even worse than what Reid or Blago said. Even so, the big media are giving the Clinton remark far less play than the Reid and Blago slurs are getting. The obvious theory is that the Media are giving the First Black President a pass, but that's just a theory. Perhaps you have a better theory. If you do, you might also believe that the Democrat Party's leadership is composed entirely of pure, saintly, politically correct angels. In both cases, you're sadly mistaken. Writer Mark Whittington asks, "Recently revealed racially charged comments by a number of Democratic politicians have raised the question, how prevalent is racism among the leaders of the Democratic Party? What does this say about what was once considered the post-racial era of Obama?" More at Associated Content...
