He Said/She Said, Polies Picking Bones

The two democrat front runners have bones to pick with one another.  Or at least their camps do.

Last week it was Hillary’s folks getting all up in arms when during a debate Hillary said it hurt her feelings when people didn’t find her personable.  In basic uppercrust jargon Obama gave Hillary a nod when in a gist told her she was aiight

Instead people got up in arms thinking it meant the opposite and that she really wasn’t likeable at all. 

Now this week people are up in arms about a comment H. Clinton said about Martin Luther King and Lydon B. Johnson.  In a debate H. Clinton said:

“Dr King’s dream began to be realised when President Lyndon Johnson passed the Civil Rights Act of 1964. It took a president to get it done.”

The media has jumped on it, Obama has commented on it and because of her gaffe she’s trying to spin it that Obama is trying to make it racial.

I just want to say, is this the best y’all got?  You both are going to nitpick about semantics and blow things up until folks take sides.  If you aren’t going to blow each other up with some good stuff then let it go.  Bring it, Obama!  Take him to the hoop, Hillary!  If you aren’t then let it pass.

H. Clinton really needs to think about who she has supporting her.  The nation’s first black billionaire is taking H. Clinton’s side in this.  Bob Johnson, the man who basically brought down the black media image with three letters, BET is supporting Clinton and said he was offended by Obama’s remarks.

I don’t think Bob Johnson knows what offensive really is.  Here’s a commercial I’d love to see on his old station (once it got really stank he sold it out to Viacom).
