In the speech, Obama sought to place the inflammatory remarks of the Rev. Jeremiah Wright in a broader context, in part by placing them on a continuum with Ferraro's recent remark to the Daily Breeze that Obama is "lucky" to be black.
"To equate what I said with what this racist bigot has said from the pulpit is unbelievable," Ferraro said today. "He gave a very good speech on race relations, but he did not address the fact that this man is up there spewing hatred."
That's right, Ferraro. Wright is a big, horrible racist because he says that black people are being treated unfairly, while you're the poor victim because you said Obama was only in the position he was in because he was black - and that's not racist at all.
Though, it is stupid.
