  •  And Ricky Ray Rector... (0+ / 0-)

    Early in '92, Clinton flew back to Arkansas to make sure a mentally-retarded black guy was executed; named Ricky Ray Rector I think.   It came around the time of his Sister Souljah strategy.   Before being killed, the guy asked if he could save some of his meal so that he could finish it the next day.   This was to re-assure whites.

    This was around the time of the New Hampshire primary/ Gennifer Flowers fiasco/ Tammy Wynette fiasco/ letter to Fulbright discussing his "future political viability" while he dodged the draft, etc... Clinton attempting to change the discussion from his peccadilloes to a debate on whether executing a mentally-retarded homicidal black guy deserved to get fried.

    The Clintons have been among the most cynical, opportunistic wackoes in our recent political scene.
