Acting White: "I Did Not Have Sex With That Race Card!"

(on the day of the PA Democratic primary)

Mr. Memoli: “Sir, what did you mean yesterday when you said that the Obama campaign was playing the race card on you?”
Mr. Clinton: “When did I say that, and to whom did I say that?”
Mr. Memoli: “On WHYY radio yesterday.”
Mr. Clinton: “No, no, no. That’s not what I said. You always follow me around and play these little games, and I’m not going to play your games today. This is a day about election day. Go back and see what the question was, and what my answer was. You have mischaracterized it to get another cheap story to divert the American people from the real urgent issues before us, and I choose not to play your game today. Have a nice day.”
Mr. Memoli: “Respectfully sir, though, you did say …”
Mr. Clinton: “Have a nice day. I said what I said, you can go and look at the interview. And if you’ll be real honest, you’ll also report what the question was and what the answer was.”

Ms. Phillips: Do you think that was a mistake and would you do that again?”
Mr. Clinton: “No, I think that they played the race card on me. We now know, from memos from the campaign and everything that they planned to do it along.”

I love how condescending he (and his finger) are. Old habits die hard...

The Clintons are dishonest. Even their supporters acknowledge that. From cattle futures to sniper fire, from Monica to Marc Rich, from Waco to Whitewater, the Clintons have proved to be as corrupt as Huey Long.

What continually amazes me is that the Clinton's crookedness is acceptable to people I otherwise respect. How can this be? Why would anyone support them at all?

His finger "salute" remind me of an Apartheid leader, PW Botha, that used that very, very often.

The into reminds me of the comic skit, "Whos on First, Whats on Second."
