Hillary: In case you didn’t understand my coded racist messages, let me make them explicit

The audio clip above and this article are so upsetting. Going into cracker-infested West Virginia and Kentucky, Hillary takes a moment to remind people that she is white and that Obama, um, is not. Subtle, no?

Spaketh the Hilldebeast: “I have a much broader base to build a winning coalition on. There was just an AP article posted that found how Sen. Obama’s support among working, hard-working Americans, white Americans, is weakening again, and how whites in both states who had not completed college were supporting me. There’s a pattern emerging here.”

Yes, there is a pattern emerging here. There certainly is. And it’s a really, really depressing one. Is this really the new low to which the Clintons have sunk? The former president of the United States, the “man from Hope,” our “first black president,” now resorts to blatant, outright racism? His wife’s reason for remaining in the race now has become simply that uneducated racist white crackers won’t vote for a black man, ergo she should be the nominee?

Do any of the hacks who are assigned to cover her ever think to point out that if she really had a “much broader base,” she wouldn’t be losing in the primaries? I’m told that these days when the Hilldebeast speaks, half the hacks just burst out laughing and the other half throw up in their mouths.

God I feel sick.
