In a follow-up interview today, Ferraro said her company had been deluged with vicious e-mail messages accusing her of racism. But far from backing off from her initial remark, Ferraro defended it and elaborated on it.
"Any time anybody does anything that in any way pulls this campaign down and says let's address reality and the problems we're facing in this world, you're accused of being racist, so you have to shut up," Ferraro said. "Racism works in two different directions. I really think they're attacking me because I'm white. How's that?"
Not bad. Tell me, Scott Lehigh, are the Dems still all excited about their long campaign?
