I'm Annoyed

Some of you might wonder why this is different than any other time, and you might be right.

We woke up this morning to the news that Clinton took the West Virginia primary by 2 to 1. That isn't what annoys me, it was expected and doesn't change much. No, what ticks me off is that 20% of Clinton voters said that race was a factor in their decision (the last paragraph). Which is bad enough, but Clinton is using this win to bolster her "electibility" to the super delegates. To me, that just smacks of pandering to the worst element in our society.

Wait. That doesn't annoy me. That pisses me off.

Maybe give those folks enough credit to vote against their prejudice rather than pandering to it? Or if you don't feel optimistic, does she really think that people who won't vote for a black man, will vote for a woman?
