Geraldine Ferraro's recent statement that "if Obama was a white man, he would not be in this position. . .he happens to be very lucky to be who he is" was breathtakingly stupid, and the Clinton team issued a weak statement of regret. Yeah Geraldine, being an young African American with the name "Barack Hussein Obama" is a sure lock in this country for political stardom. Geraldine, a Fux News political "analyst", has been all over the Rethug channel, explaining herself.
Regretably, doubling down on stupid, Ferraro stuffed her other foot in her mouth with a defiant rejoinder:
"Racism works in two different directions. I really think they're attacking me because I'm white. How's that?"
How's that, Geraldine? Well, that's S-T-U-P-I-D. Now, go away and don't come back.
