Spitzer and Ferraro

I figure I should probably add my two cents to the Spitzer story. This is at the end of the day about a man making a horribly stupid mistake. A mistake that hurt his career and more importantly his family. People have already noted that this will cost Hillary at least one delegate in Denver, such is the state of American politics these days.

More important than Spitzer's traveling penis is Geraldine Ferraro's mouth. Ferraro got into hot water after a California paper printed some unbelievably racist comments she made about Obama. If you haven't seen Keith Olbermann's comment on this affair, here it is. Olbermann is great at being self-righteous and this is him at his zenith. However, if you go past the rhetoric, as is so often the case, Olbermann is right. Ferraro's comment's are despicable. Clinton's response is inexcusable.

If those are "unbelievably racist comments" then racism sure ain't what it used to be.

Unbelievable for a woman in Ferraro's position.
