White: it's the new Black

Geraldine Ferraro, in trouble for her remarks saying Barack Obama would be nothing if he was a white man, shoots back:

"Any time anybody does anything that in any way pulls [the Obama] campaign down and says let's address reality and the problems we're facing in this world, you're accused of being racist, so you have to shut up," Ferraro said. "Racism works in two different directions. I really think they're attacking me because I'm white. How's that?"

Spot has some reality for you, Geraldine: people prefer Obama's hopefulness to your churlish apparatchik. Spot says that the Clinton campaign should look in the mirror to see who is playing identity politics.
