Meanwhile, back on the plantation...

On the same day Mr. Nagin was spewing his racist nonsense (see previous post), the esteemed Senator Hillary Clinton (D-NY), had this to say: "When you look at the way the House of Representatives has been run, it has been run like a plantation, and you know what I'm talking about."

In making the statement before a mostly black audience at a church in Harlem, Ms. Clinton was apparently comparing the misery of a plantation slave to that of a house Democrat. Somehow, I don't think a Republican would have gotten away with that had the roles been reversed. But like Nagin, Clinton will get a pass.
