Geraldine Failure-arro contracts foot-in-mouth disease

Speaking of sleazy NYC Demorats...

The most horrible VP choice in the history of American politics has shown the country why we were correct to give her and Walter Mundane the historically colossal record-setting smackdown we did in 1984.

In an interview with some two-bit paper in a little town in California, Geraldine "My husband was a career criminal and all I got was these two lousy electoral votes" Ferraro put on her white sheet and had this to say about the man she calls "Little Black Sambo" (Via Los Angeles Slimes):
Ferraro, the first woman to be on the ticket as a vice presidential candidate in either party, ignited a controversy when she told the Daily Breeze of Torrance that: "If Obama was a white man, he would not be in this position. And if he was a woman [of any color] he would not be in this position. He happens to be very lucky to be who he is. And the country is caught up in the concept."

Ferraro, a former congresswoman from New York, said she was "hurt, absolutely hurt by how they have taken this thing and spun it to sort of imply in any way, in any way, I am a racist." But she said she was "absolutely not" sorry she had said Obama was benefiting from his status as the first African American perceived as having the chance to win the presidency.

"I was talking about historic candidacies," she said. "In 1984, if my name were Gerard Ferraro instead of Geraldine Ferraro, I would never have been chosen as the vice president."

But Obama, interviewed on NBC's "Today," said Ferraro's comments are absurd on their face.

"If you were to get a handbook on what's the path to the presidency, I don't think that the handbook would start by saying, 'Be an African American named Barack Obama.' I don't think that would be generally considered an advantage, and it certainly wasn't when I was running for the United States Senate or the presidency."

She's shocked--shocked!!--that someone would take her comments as being racist. Why, don't people know that some of her best friends are black? Of course, ¿Hillary? Clinton--for whom Failure-arro is a superdelegate--will neither support nor rebuke the washed-up congresswoman (D - Riker's Island). After all, she needs Failure-arro's vote as a superdelegate. So, ¿Hillary? will do what she always does--cozy up to the sleazy and slimy until she gets what she needs, then deny she ever had anything to do with them.
