Most Ridiculous Quote of the Day

Geraldine Ferraro has written a wholly unconvincing op-ed in the Boston Globe blaming "sexism," fully and completely, on the part of the press, the Obama campaign, and everyone else, for Clinton's loss to Obama. Here's my favorite part, where this alleged liberal channels Sean Hannity:

". Since March, when I was accused of being racist for a statement I made about the influence of blacks on Obama's historic campaign, people have been stopping me to express a common sentiment: If you're white you can't open your mouth without being accused of being racist. They see Obama's playing the race card throughout the campaign and no one calling him for it as frightening."
Those poor, poor, disadvantaged white people! When will they start getting a fair shake in this country?

If you know me, you know that I'm white, and you know that I've been known to open my mouth quite a lot. But I don't think I've ever been called racist. It's also especially hilarious when Ferraro attacks Obama because he's "someone who has gone to Columbia and Harvard Law School and is married to a Princeton-Harvard Law graduate." How dare he and his wife go to good schools! Somebody stop them before it's too late!

(Thanks to Jabbett for the heads-up).
