Jesse Jackson Jr.: Hillary cried for the wrong reason

Ah, here’s that anticipated identity-politics ratchet turning now. Hillary’s tears connecting with women? Then use them to alienate blacks, per the congressman’s none-too-subtle connection at the beginning here between the things Hillary didn’t cry for — namely, Katrina — and the huge number of black voters in South Carolina. I wonder if the Messiah himself will stoop to pointing out how self-centered and pitiless the white candidate is once he gets down there or whether, in his immaculate transcendence, he’ll leave that dirty business to chip-off-the-old-block race demagogues like this. Stay tuned.
