"Cheap, ignorant, vile racism"

Since before the March 4 primaries, I've watched with an increasing degree of mortification as the Democratic primary has taken a sharp left turn into the bizarre. The tactics employed by Team Clinton to eke out a victory over Barack Obama at any price has taken on a desperation that would be comical if it weren't for the tragically real possibility of a John McCain presidency.

The flap regarding seemingly racist comments about Senator Obama by former vice-presidential candidate and current Clinton surrogate Geraldine Ferraro appears to have been the final straw for Keith Olbermann, who, up to now, has reserved his eloquent, scathing "Special Comments" for President Bush and the various operatives in his junta. No more, as he reads Hillary the riot act for her campaign's recent (mis)conduct. Let's see if it has any effect.
