A lot of blog readers weren’t really old enough to fully experience the Clinton-hatred of the 90′s. So they don’t really understand why Hillary Clinton is seen as “divisive.”
I think they’re going to get a dose of the same sort of stuff again, because the right is starting to do its thing on Barack Obama now.
Example, at National Review, Obama’s Political Origins,
Political correctness was invented precisely to prevent the mainstream liberal media from persuing the questions which might arise about how Senator Obama’s mother, from Kansas, came to marry an African graduate student.
. . . It was, of course, an explicit tactic of the Communist party to stir up discontent among American blacks, with an eye toward using them as the leading edge of the revolution.
Oh, PLEASE go read the whole thing. There’s going to be a lot worse coming.
