Hillary's tawdry slur - UPDATED

According to USA Today Clinton was speaking at the Canaan Baptist Church in Harlem and this was the quote:

The House "has been run like a plantation, and you know what I'm talking about," said Clinton, D-N.Y. "It has been run in a way so that nobody with a contrary view has had a chance to present legislation, to make an argument, to be heard."

The term that Senator Clinton should have used was "dictatorship" if she meant to describe a system under which contrary views aren't heard. But PLANTATION works much better for race-baiting.


"The Republicans have been running the House of Representatives like a plantation - and you know what I mean."

Hillary Clinton today during a memorial to Martin Luther King Jr. - I believe at a church in the Bronx. The above might not be 100% accurate but the gist of it is - the bit about the plantation. I haven't found a copy of the transcript as I saw it on the ten o'clock news. Frankly, I don't think the context matters.

It's a tawdry left-wing slur against the Republicans and conservatives - cheap race-baiting filth on a day meant to honor someone above it.

Come to think of it, 'tawdry' is a very good term for Hillary Clinton.
