Hillary apologizes but the Gerryslandering continues

Hillary Clinton (speaking at a forum sponsored by the National Newspaper Publishers Association, a group of more than 200 black community newspapers across the country) repudiated Gerry Ferraro's recent remarks and apologized for a couple of things.

If this had come before it was obvious her campaign was taking a hit, and before much criticism including Olbermann's special comment, it may have had a lot more credibility to it. Still, she was pretty definitive about her stance on Ferraro's remarks,

"I certainly do repudiate it and I regret deeply that it was said. Obviously she doesn't speak for the campaign, she doesn't speak for any of my positions, and she has resigned from being a member of my very large finance committee"

so it is a step in the correct direction.

Gerry Ferraro however, still doesn't get it. She claims that the Obama camp owes her an apology. Later she apparently expressed the desire to put this controversy behind her, but ended up, again, accusing the Obama campaign of being in the wrong in this entire affair and of therefore practicing divisive and bad politics.

This cluenessness and apparent senility was vaguely familiar---and today it hit me. You tell me----separated at birth?

*Barbara Bush was referring to Katrina evacuees who were being housed in a freaking stadium.
