Amy Poehler Is So Right

Amy Poehler's latest impersonation of Hillary Clinton on Saturday Night Live brilliantly captures the Democratic Party's political zeitgeist. Indeed, Poehler's humorous pseudo Clinton illustrates the real subtext behind her message to the party's super delegates: my supporters are racist and I'm shamelessly unscrupulous enough to do whatever it takes to win. Clinton's recent channeling of her inner George Wallace in USA Today last week had me infuriated. She deserves forceful repudiation not merely because of her comments in USA Today but her sinister campaign of race baiting with dog whistles. Even better would be repudiation by the voters of West Virginia tomorrow but that's not going to happen.
