The Democratic party is swiftly turning into the Jerry Springer Party. The Democratic presidential contest is about one degree away from bleeped out tirades and security guards tackling the guests amid the biting, scratching and name-calling.


Even though the resignation of New York Governor Eliot “Backdoor” Spitzer is the story of the day, the recent comments of infamous womanyst, and the first female VP candidate for a major US political party, Geraldine Ferraro are worth quoting here. The followers of the various victimhood factions of the Dems have decided to start leveling the same charges and insinuations at each other that they usually reserve for those evil Republicans. It is also interesting to see the sharp blades of political correctness being turned on their usual wielders.

Ferraro seems stunned that her comments were taken poorly by some (how long has this woman been a Democrat?) but I am personally convinced that as soon as someone gives her something shiny or sparkly that she’ll be fine. But until then, she continues to embarrass her friend Hillary Clinton whose campaign she is loosely affiliated with.

The following quotes are by Geraldine Ferraro in the last few days.

“If Obama was a white man, he would not be in this position. And if he was a woman (of any color), he would not be in this position. He happens to be very lucky to be who he is. And the country is caught up in the concept.”

“Any time anybody does anything that in any way pulls this 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. Racism works in two different directions. I really think they’re attacking me because I’m white. How’s that?”

“In all honesty, do you think that if he were a white male, there would be a reason for the black community to get excited for a historic first? Am I pointing out something that doesn’t exist?”

“Sexism is a bigger problem. It’s OK to be sexist in some people’s minds. It’s not OK to be racist.”

Now conservatives tend to laugh out loud at the perceived horror by liberals at the ultimate sin (as defined by liberals), the controversial or ‘insensitive’ comment, and this case is no different. America will never fully heal from its racial fissures if we are afraid to talk about race. The outrage should not be over whether or not she should have made these remarks, but whether or not the statement was rooted in truth.

That’s the problem with political correctness. Everyone is frightened to mention the obvious (he’s black and it’s helping him) whether or not it is true. One should be critiqued and criticized for the worthiness, strength, or truth of something, not whether or not one has the urge to discuss it.

As a society we need to throw off the ‘white man’s burden’ once and for all while still seeking justice, opportunity and success for all American citizens regardless of race. And the hand wringing over whether or not such comments ‘remind’ voters that Sen. Barack Obama’s father was African is ridiculous. Do they think that the voters can’t tell that? That they didn’t know that until now? Please. The chains of political correctness and the idiocy surrounding it needs to broken and tossed into the dustbin of history as soon as possible.

That is not to say that Geraldine Ferraro is not a dullard and a ditz for once again injecting race into the leprous corpse of the Clinton campaign in the hopes of helping it limp on to the finish line. It was poor politics at best and continues to backfire as she stubbornly defends her position instead of doing the usual progressive penance of apologizing and meeting with Sharpton and Jackson to complete her ideological reeducation.

The other possible angle on all this is that the Obama camp is trying out the ‘CRY RACISM’ tactic everytime their candidate is mentioned by an opponent or their minions to see how the MSM reacts and how far they will ‘carry his water’ for him. It appears that they will carry it as far as asked. I sincerely hope that Hillary does win the nomination because you can beat her up all day long and no one really cares, but McCain or anyone else with an (R) after their name will be branded a racist for merely uttering Obama’s name, let alone daring to point out the utter incompetence, socialist policies or inexperience of the Democratic nominee.

As for the truth in her premise that Obama would be nothing but a has-been state senator if not for his race, I can’t say with any reasonable degree of accuracy. But I can ask: Where John Edwards is today and what is the difference between him and Obama?

Case closed. Or is it?

Geraldine Ferraro has finally decided to disengage herself publicly from the Clinton campaign with her usual tact and grace.

Dear Hillary –

I am stepping down from your finance committee so I can speak for myself and you can continue to speak for yourself about what is at stake in this campaign.

The Obama campaign is attacking me to hurt you. I won’t let that happen.

Thank you for everything you have done and continue to do to make this a better world for my children and grandchildren.

You have my deep admiration and respect.


So join me now in chanting:


"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free."

- President Ronald Reagan

 ”I will not cede more power to the state. I will not willingly cede more power to anyone, not to the state, not to General Motors, not to the CIO. I will hoard my power like a miser, resisting every effort to drain it away from me. I will then use my power, as I see fit. I mean to live my life an obedient man, but obedient to God, subservient to the wisdom of my ancestors; never to the authority of political truths arrived at yesterday at the voting booth. That is a program of sorts, is it not? It is certainly program enough to keep conservatives busy, and Liberals at bay. And the nation free.”

—William F. Buckley Jr.

"Liberals want to regulate just about everything: where we live, what fuels we use, what car we drive, whether we can drive or be forced to use government mass transit, where we send our kids to school, what doctor we see, and even to what extent we express our approval or disapproval of others’ lifestyles. It’s hard to find something liberals don’t want to regulate. Is that a world you want to live in?” 

"At such a time in history, we who are free must proclaim anew our faith. This faith is the abiding creed of our fathers. It is our faith in the deathless dignity of man, governed by eternal moral and natural laws. This faith defines our full view of life. It establishes, beyond debate, those gifts of the Creator that are man’s inalienable rights, and that make all men equal in His sight. "

Dwight D. Eisenhower

"And if we elect a government that subverts or weakens or ends our war against terrorism, we can count on this: We will soon face enemies that will make 9/11 look like stubbing our toe, and they will attack us with the confidence and determination that come from knowing that we don’t have the will to sustain a war all the way to the end."

- Orson Scott Card

"In response to skyrocketing gas prices, liberals say, practically in unison, 'We can’t drill our way out of this crisis.”' What does that mean? This is like telling a starving man, 'You can’t eat your way out of being hungry!'  'You can’t water your way out of drought!' 'You can’t sleep your way out of tiredness!' 'You can’t drink yourself out of dehydration!' Seriously, what does it mean? Finding more oil isn’t going to increase the supply of oil? It is the typical Democratic strategy to babble meaningless slogans, as if they have a plan. Their plan is: the permanent twilight of the human race. "

-Ann Coulter

"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."
-Samuel Adams
