What racism looks like

It's my Daily Kos moment here on the blog. I'm actually astounded by the depths now being plumbed by HIllary Clinton. How many ways is the message of Hillary's new stump speech absolutely unethical and wrong?

"Clinton said, 'I have a much broader base to build a winning coalition on.' She cited an Associated Press article 'that found how Senator Obama's support among working, hardworking Americans, white Americans, is weakening again, and how whites in both states who had not completed college were supporting me.'"

Yep, bring the redneck, Mason Dixon vote back home. The odd thing is that the exit polls on Tuesday showed that Obama's appeal to white voters had strengthened, if not with those without a college education. But acknowledging demographics is different than arguing that these "hardworking Americans" won't vote for a black man. She's been using this appeal in various ways for at least six weeks or so. I'm fed up. Fuck her and all the racist rednecks. Shouldn't the democratic party be trying to marginalize their asses rather than trying to "appeal" to them? They'll end up voting for McCain anyway, just like they voted for Bush. Hopefully, this really does spell the end of the Clinton "dynasty" and the end of those self-serving cowards of the Democratic Leadership Conference (DLC).
