Donna Brazile Insults Whites & Hispanics & Gets A Free Pass From The Media
Why is almost every news outlet skipping Donna Brazile's insulting remarks about white and Hispanic voters and starting their coverage at a much later point?
Here's the firestorm's actual point of origin:
BRAZILE: Well, Lou, I have worked on a lot of Democratic campaigns, and I respect Paul. But, Paul, you're looking at the old coalition. A new Democratic coalition is younger. It is more urban, as well as suburban, and we don't have to just rely on white blue-collar voters and Hispanics. We need to look at the Democratic Party, expand the party, expand the base and not throw out the baby with the bathwater.
How freakin' insulting and seriously stupid is that?
And Paul Begala was justifiably insulted:
Begala: When people say things -- I love Donna and we go back 22 years. We've never been on different sides of an arguments in our entire lives. But if her point is that there's a new Democratic Party that somehow doesn't need or want white working-class people and Latinos, well count me out.
And guess what Donna said next!
DONNA BRAZILE, CNN CONTRIBUTOR: Paul, baby, I did not say that.
Yes, you did, Donna.
Yes, you did.

Take a good look at the treatment of this exchange and tell me why Donna Brazile gets a free pass for such dangerously divisive bad behavior.
And don't even dare to call me a racist for wondering.
Best bar bet in the world: Delilah didn't do it.
