THE PLANK MAY 12, 2008

More Hard-working White Americans

Talking Points Memo has a video compilation from the weekend talk shows. I particularly liked this exchange between Bon Schieffer of CBS News and Terry MacAuliffe of the Clinton campaign:

Bob Schieffer: Was she somehow saying that black people are not hard working or that white people are not going to vote for Barack Obama?

Terry MacAuliffe: No, absolutely not. If Barack Obama happens to be the nominee, we will work -- everybody will work very hard, we will be a unified party.

Of course they'll work hard. They're white!

--Jonathan Chait
