Bubba Again Injects Race into Obama's Campaign

Bill Clinton is experiencing a well-deserved muzzling by the Clinton Inc crowd, so they say. The WSJ has his latest outrage:
Asked by a reporter why it took "two" Clintons to beat Mr. Obama, Mr. Clinton replied that "Jesse Jackson won South Carolina" in 1984 and 1988. And he added that both Rev. Jackson and Mr. Obama had run "a good campaign here." Hmmm. The reporter hadn't mentioned Jesse Jackson, but Mr. Clinton somehow felt it apposite to refer to him anyway. He thus associated Mr. Obama's landslide victory with that of a black candidate who never did win the Democratic nomination, much less the Presidency, and who had run overtly as an African-American candidate in contrast to Mr. Obama's explicit campaign theme of transcending race.

It's too much to expect that the subsequent endorsements of Caroline & then Teddy Kennedy will ever humble this out-and-out megalomaniac. Only a crushing defeat brought on by his numerous tragic [and comic] faults would begin to do that. But the WSJ asks another question which stares at one in the face:
Imagine if Mitt Romney had made the Jesse Jackson comparison. Democrats would have immediately denounced the remarks as "racist," or as a part of some Republican "Southern strategy."

The cowardice and bias of the MSM defies description.
