This could have been subtitled “Or, How I Learned To Play The Race Card And Get Away With It.” The problem with James Clyburn is that he apparently believes that he didn’t say anything approaching the level of “racism.”
You can review what was in the McClatchy article here. Clyburn tries to refute his “racism” charge here. Ed Morrissey gives us his take at Hot Air. As Morrissey notes, you can adequately play the “race card” without once using the word “racism.” But if Clyburn didn’t play it, he wouldn’t be a Democrat.
