Hillary's Plantation Remarks

There is very little news coverage about the comments made by New York Senator Hillary Clinton at a Martin Luther King Day event on Monday. Here is what she said:

"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."

Oh really? A plantation! And what does the line "and you know what I'm talking about" mean? Well I know what she means and I think most of you do too. It is nothing more than racial pandering. She is trying to create and promote the image of Republicans as anti-black with her comments.

But the real story is the media coverage, or the lack thereof. Right now, if you take a cursory glance of the mainstream media, Hillary's remarks are receiving very little coverage. Now imagine if Bill Frist, Trent Lott, Dennis Hastert or Tom DeLay had said it. The media would be demanding their resignation. Need an example??? OK Trent Lott.

Trent Lott said far less than Hillary at Strom Thurmond’s Birthday party. When he said something about we wouldn’t have the problems we had today if we had elected Thurmond President. Well since one of Thurmond’s running points was segregation the media jumped all over Lott. Trent Lott apologized 7 times for his statement but it was never enough. The media never shut up about it until he resigned from his senate leadership position. Hillary makes racist remarks...and the leftist press gives her a free pass. Biased, liberal media?
