Let’s call it what it was in Kentucky and West Virginia. Race-based. Listen to the reporter in the middle of this video talk about how the educated Kentuckians have never once said it’s about race. Well, of course they haven’t! If they can rely on a different, more nuanced but still bogus line of reasoning like “lack of experience”, they don’t have to look at the real root of their dislike, right?
This wasn’t reported widely here in the US. Why was that? For fear of offending…who? Or was it fear of affirming?
I have more respect for the few folks who just admitted what it was, instead of hiding behind the “just don’t wanna” facade.

The divine Rachel Maddow retorts: “Yeah, but she’d lose to McCain.”
The outrage expressed over at Balloon Juice is similar to my own. How can anyone say “Count all the votes” with a straight face and then turn around and claim to be ahead in the popular vote by excluding all of the caucus states but Texas and Washington, and giving Barack Obama NO VOTES in Michigan?
There are lies, damn lies, statistics, and then Clinton spin.
