Older liberals don't seem to get it that the younger generations, the new liberals, are becoming fed up with the wailing, whatever-cards of the sixties hippies. This opinion piece by Roland S. Martin on CNN drives home the point that the tactic is indeed becoming tiresome, transparent and trite.
Finally, all camps seem to agree on at least one thing: enough is enough. Here are a few highlights:
In a front page story in Monday's New York Times, Ferraro didn't just play the gender card, she also combined it with the race card.
"John Edwards, specifically, as well as the press, would never attack Barack Obama for two hours the way they attacked her. It's OK In this country to be sexist. It's certainly not OK to be racist. I think if Barack Obama had been attacked for two hours -- well, I don't think Barack Obama would have been attacked for two hours."
She later said, "We can't let them do this in a presidential race. They say we're playing the gender card. We are not. We are not. We have got to stand up. It's discrimination against her as a candidate because she is a woman."
Excuse me? How in the world is Clinton being discriminated against? She is leading all polls. She has raised more money than all the other candidates. She is leading likely GOP challengers in the polls, and Ferraro is mad because she's getting criticized? Give me a break!
