Sectionalism verus Hillary! Ha!
 
So, for the first time in several decades the state of Indiana actually seems to carry a function in the Democratic nomination process. This is such a historical anomaly that Mickey Kantor probably never thought it would come back to haunt him when he called Hoosiers "white (men of African descent, whom he thinks is quite nice)" and "complete shit", as was documented in the 1992 documentary "The War Room". Fortunately, this seems to be haunting Hillary rather well, since the Clintons appointed him Secretary of Commerce, he's rather active in the present campaign for her, and that video clip is rather popular in online media for this area.

Laugh out loud.

Actually, addendum:

The "white (et cetera)" part was apparently a hoax, and now Kantor is saying that the "those people are SHIT!" remark wasn't directed at us, but rather "the Bush administration". Looking at an unedited clip from the movie online, it seems the first part of his claim is true, but the second part seems implausible.

I'm mostly offended at the national media's use of the word "Indianans". We're HOOSIERS, assholes.

Those of us having the "good fortune" to live in states that unsuccessfully petitioned to move their primary to Super Tuesday are getting more election coverage than we thought we'd EVER get. Candidate debates, ad blitzes, speeches, town meetings, blah blah.

There's 6 months of this tripe still to come - stay tuned....
