    What was Bernie just saying about Hillary's judgment?

    Cue the excuses: "de Blasio can't be racist because his wife is black."

    CP time is a pretty common term.

    Holy .... Cue Harvey Keitell as The Cleaner in Pulp Fiction arriving on site in a hurry to wash this one down.

    Did Hillary respond with her southern Negro drawl caricature voice?

    I'd never heard it before myself. Then again, I don't associate with rich New York political elites.

    Never heard this term before, but christ, it's like Clinton is completely tone deaf. WHY would you make a joke like that? Why?

    The idiocy of her campaign is truly staggering, it's like they're looking for new ways to make NY a challenging state.

    I don't like the overly PC nature of things generally, but this is definitely in terrible taste. If a republican had been involved the torches would have came out.

    This of course, is just as expected.

    The Clinton's open distain for black Americans goes back to long before Bill was elected. I'm not sure what he promised Sharpton and Jackson to get their undying support, but it had to be along the lines of no real reform so those two could keep growing their power base.

    It's so sad that blacks are so much better represented by the Republican Party, who only wants them to raise up and better themselves, but their leadership keeps supporting the party who keeps repressing them and holding them back.

    Hillary is just showing her contempt and true feelings. She's not quite as good a liar as Bill - or her ego lets her think she can get away with anything cause it's "her turn" to be President after all.

    You won't see any outrage over this from black leadership, mainstream media, or even Sanders calling her judgement into question over this one...

    Free pass. Move along. Nothing to see here.

    If it's racist it's not ok... but honestly I've never heard of that "CP" term before, I feel just like the time I found out Jeremy Clarkson used a racist term ("slope") on Top Gear... Disappointed.

    Jeebus, it's like reality and shame don't exist. Clinton didn't make the joke and the usual (correct adjective redacted because board rules) continue to ignorantly pile on.

    Why are you always so angry, man? Not healthy. It's just a forum.

    It's apparently not okay when Democrats do it, and there are dozens of articles critical of the scripted event. (Seriously, was everyone drunk on Saturday?

    Now, before the atypical point from some conservative about how the media didn't cover, as Slate points out:

    (I saw this go through the wire, but I didn't understand the issue at first either.)

    However, since Monday, the opprobrium has been swift, New York Magazine called the skit "amazingly unfunny" and multiple outlets have covered the event and the joke's meaning and context.

    That's absolutely true. HRC should accept responsibility for the joke.

    However, I find it interesting that the whole "Damn PC" crowd are suddenly up in the ship's mast and readying the cannons.

    Isn't it PC to attack this joke for its racial character?

    If Donald Trump has made this joke, wouldn't conservatives argue that the joke isn't offensive, because black people use CP time too?

    Just wondering aloud.

    No, she's delivering the punchline to the joke and therefore she as responsible as DeBlasio.

    is that as ironic as democrats wanting to severely limit the 2nd while enjoying armed guards?
    the dems are all about safe spaces, except they they don't care :D

    thanks for the red part.

    This actually isn't hypocrisy.

    "Armed guards" in this case are well-trained personnel with strict rules of engagement, who practice endlessly to ensure an accurate, well-measured response to a threat. Celebrity figures and major politicians often face a constant low-level hum of threats, making this more necessary than the average joe wandering the cereal aisle in the grocery store.

    Yeah, no problem.

    Yesterday. There was that one old lady getting Malt'O'Meal that looked pretty shifty.

    I also hit the tortilla place in "the ghetto" because the damned dog ate all the queso fresca after my son left it out.

    Democrats can say just about anything and the minorities voters would still vote for them. She could be up there with an ICE hat and windbreaker on and still net 70% of the Hispanic vote.
