The reaction to Hillary using a double entendre which means both a gardening tool and a racial epithet for Barack Obama on The Today Show?

Crickets chirping. Silence. Nothing. Nada. Not one word from Al Sharpton, not a peep out of NBC.

Once again, the double standard is laughable. The righteous indignation from the left (and left-leaning media) usually reserved for any and all Republicans is always absent when it comes to liberal Democrats.

Picture Rudy Giuliani being asked about Obama’s candidacy and saying, “Let’s just call a spade a spade here. He can’t win.”

I can hear the boiling tar and feather-gathering already. We all know that “calling a spade a spade” isn’t any more racial than a gardening tool. But if a Republican, any Republican, were to use that phrase in any context for a black opponent it would be all over for that candidate. The media would come unhinged.

Hillary says that Barack Obama “hasn’t done the spade work” in front of millions of viewers?

Not a single, solitary word. And she goes on to post the upset victory over Obama in New Hampshire later in the week.

Dick Morris is a political genius.
