  • Please, make it stop

    It’s gotten beyond parody (well … almost). Now we’ve come to even more overt appeals to racism and sexism in the Democratic primary. The AP announces: “Bill Clinton: Race, gender key in S.C.” A snippet: Bill Clinton said Wednesday he expects blacks to vote for Barack…

  • More comedy from Democrats trying to navigate the Straits of PC Gibberish

    I wrote last month that Of the Democrat frontrunners, Obama holds the race card, Clinton the gender card, while John Edwards is left trying to play a class card. Supporters of each are struggling against the new reality that the favored old disqualification tack doesn’t work, since they’re all…

    Read this article if you are in dire need of an emetic; I have no doubt it will work. (Note: The preceding claim has not been reviewed by the Food and Drug Administration.) If you have managed “I feel so strongly that if we don’t take care of…
