Boil This Crab

 

If there were any Black person in the public eye willing to take one for the team and co-sign Geraldine Ferraro’s imbecilic comment that Barack Obama’s only benefitting from his race, and that is much easier for a Black man in America to obtain the presidency than a white woman, of course it would be BET founder Bob Johnson.

"What I believe Geraldine Ferraro meant is that if you take a freshman senator from Illinois called 'Jerry Smith' and he says I'm going to run for president, would he start off with 90% of the black vote?" Johnson said. "And the answer is, probably not."
So if Hillary weren’t a First Lady riding the wave of nostalgia of her husband’s accomplishments, would she be a viable contender for the presidency as the junior senator from New York only half-way through her second term? Would she even be a senator if her last name weren’t Clinton?

Like a true Clintonian, Bob Johnson has a gift for separating his comments from facts and sounding like a complete idiot.

Sen. Hillary Clinton's lead over Sen. Barack Obama, her chief rival for the Democratic presidential nomination, is growing among African-American voters who are registered Democrats, and particularly among black women, a poll said Wednesday.

Among black registered Democrats overall, Clinton had a 57 percent to 33 percent lead over Obama.

That is from a CNN story entitled “Poll: Black support helps Clinton extend lead” published in October 2007.

If you recall, Hillary Clinton maintained a sizable lead among Black voters up until she and her husband started talking out the side of their necks with their race baiting antics.

None of this has stopped this clown for making more asinine statements like:

"Geraldine Ferraro said it right," Johnson added. "The problem is, Geraldine Ferraro is white. This campaign has such a hair-trigger on anything racial it is almost impossible for anybody to say anything."
If memory serves me correctly, race hadn’t become a theme of this race until the Clintons made it one.

Bob Johnson is living proof that being rich doesn’t make you smart, and that no matter how much power one accumulates through the years, some people are still willing to shuffle despite their better senses.

Barack Obama has won some of the whitest states in the country, yet Bob Johnson wants to co-sign the jilted Golden Girl on her embittered rant that Barack's claim to fame is his melanin count?

And despite Geraldine making similar comments about Jesse Jackson in 1988, I suppose I'm to believe her statement about Obama has no racial connotations to it?

If only someone could bitchslap the Black off him.
