Okay, maybe the Trent Lott comparison isn't a perfect analogy (it still works, if you ask me though). Here's an example of how Obama and his people responded when Geraldine Ferraro said, "“If Obama was a white man, he would not be in this position, and if he was a woman (of any color) he would not be in this position. He happens to be very lucky to be who he is. And the country is caught up in the concept." Note that Ferraro said nothing about his lack of "Negro dialect."
There are two ways to respond to this. Either we point out that Obama only gives passes on racism when he needs the source of the racist comment to pass his pet health care bill.
Or maybe Obama was rougher on Geraldine Ferraro because she's a woman. The sexist. Why does he hate women so much?
