That way madness lies: Olbermann on Clinton, Ferraro, and the appeal to "casual prejudice"

By Michael J.W. Stickings

Brilliant Olbermann.

"This is not a campaign strategy. This is a suicide pact." Olbermann urges Clinton to reject it. The problem is, attacking Obama, and doing so by appealing to "casual prejudice," is what the Clinton campaign is now all about. Indeed, for all intents and patterns, it is the campaign strategy. For Clinton to reject it would be to reject her very own campaign.

Which would be the best thing for her to do.

Here's the video. Make sure to watch it in full.

  • See my post, Mike.

    It's not a suicide pact. It's the way elections are won.

    If in 2000, KO had said the same thing to Bush ahead of the SC primary, he'd realize now that the nature of American politics has shifted, and this is the only strategy that seems to work.
