    but the whole Fairy Tale Bullshit and STUPID! Donna Brazille, taking it out of context is what did it.  "Jesse Jackson" I did think was somewhat inapropriate, but that was the ONLY one, and Hillary pretty much apologized for it at SOTBU. But we all saw how the media LOVED this race thing, cmon now...

      They were soooo excited to say the word RACE over and over again. Now, i think it would be wonderful to have a real, fact-based discussion about race and its effects in todays America, but thats not what the media was doing at all.

      They just wanted to lay the word RACE out like a dead fish and hope the enticing stench would attract viewers.

      I think the analysis of the "fairy tale" and and "MLK/LBJ" comments were overblown. That doesnt excuse the bad faith actors in Clinton's camp, or as i have come to regard them as, the Three Dunces. Shaheen, Kerrey, and Penn. All of whom were trounced by Larry Johnson as the Blind King of Idiotic Statements.

      I think saying anything different is a Republican Talking Point from Fox News.
