Wait.. Rev. Wright calls Hillary a White Girl?

Obama's "spiritual advisor" Rev. Wright? Calls Hillary Clinton a white girl who doesn't know anything is FINE FINE FINE?

Oh, I'm sorry, Donald. I can't take this shit.

I just can't.

Codes and shorthands? Losing content and context?

No, I haven't lost a thing.

I get it.

This is "entertainment" while Ferraro's comments are evil.

I should give Obama the benefit of the doubt but with Clinton, guilt by association runs deep.

Yeah. I get it.

I guess you've seen by now that Obama has written a long piece over at Huffington Post (!) "denouncing" Wright's words.

The fact remains, though, that Obama attended Wright's church for 17 years, Wright married Obama and his wife, and christened their 2 daughters.

You don't have that kind of relationship with someone if you really disagree with their values. Not 17 years.

I feel so sad when I see things like this - and so angry. For the record, I support Obama because I believe he is more of what this country needs right now, in this particular position. But if he can't win without smearing Clinton, I'd rather he lose.

In any case, I have great respect and admiration for Hillary Clinton. I'd just rather see her in the Supreme Court than in the White House. I think she would be more effective in that role, and probably happier, and a bigger thorn in Rush Limbaugh's side.

Bottom line - Clinton and Obama, Clinton supporters and Obama supporters - we're all on the same team.

Also, it pisses me off that Hillary gets such lousy press, and Obama mostly gets a pass in the press. I'd really like to see it more even-handed.

both sides are out of control, and it is now being reflected in the polls that the democrats are shooting themselves in the foot. both the comments of rev. wright AND geraldine ferraro were repugnant, and both hillary and barack denouned them. i don't see that either side has decided to take the high road here. just going to be a couple more months of it. by then, the general electorate will be so tired of the democrats we could easily have 4 more years of repulican rule. now do you wonder why i told you i was sick of it?

your restraint has been remarkable! don't stop on my account, when i get tired of reading the political ones, i can just skip over them. i don't want to be blamed that you stopped because of something i said, and exploded from all the pent up energy!

I was asked by a few others why I have stopped writing about the daily life of a suburban lesbian housewife.

it is, perhaps, the most powerful voice I have, and the most capable of creating change.
