THE RACE CARD
Taking a public position on health insurance, the propriety of the government bailouts, the American military situation in Afghanistan (or for that matter, Vietnam), or any other issue, is free speech protected by the First Amendment. I have a right to disagree with you. You have a right to disagree with me. But what in the “you-know-what” does race have to do with anything? Huh? How dumb is injecting race into debates? Very.
Dumb is one thing. But if someone plays the race card on an issue, when they know better, that’s not dumb. It’s political cunning. It’s an insult to intelligence. And it’s despicable. It matters not if the race card is played by a former president, or any other big shot.
