West Virginia: A Pyrrhic Victory?

Oh good for Hillary. She should be really thrilled to celebrate her victory over Barack Obama in a state full of white racists who will never vote for a Black man (or woman for that matter). How must it feel for her to know that West Virginians voted for her in order to vote against a man because of the colour of his skin? Even if she gains the Democratic nomination, these West Virginians aren't going to vote for her anyway. They're going to vote for that so-called straight-talkin' McCain.

This victory in West Virginia is not a victory for the Clinton campaign. And it's a defeat for anyone who has hope for racial equality in the United States. Go ahead, Hillary, try to make this win in West Virginia work to your advantage. The more you talk it up, the uglier you will look.

Saw this and thought of you. It's a little over the top.

Hope you are well.
