White Female Candidate ISO HRC

While most political websites are full of the partisan rhetoric we so enjoy, State Attorney General candidate Denise O’Donnell’s site caught us a bit off guard with its candor.

Under the headline, “One break will be the willingness of white women voters to embrace a qualified fresh female face,” O’Donnell ‘s camp tries to lobby for Hillary’s support.

“Even Senator Clinton would benefit from backing O’Donnell in this race – it would be hard for anyone to criticize her for supporting another woman for a statewide seat – particularly a prosecutor.

“But the bigger break may be with the Black vote – a key primary constituency,” O’Donnell’s camp writes.

“With the right introductions, O’Donell’s attitude and resume may resonate with Black community leaders. To fully exploit the vacuum here, however, O’Donnell will need bucks. Every political effort in our community on behalf of a white non-incumbent candidate requires real dollars and a serious field operation.”

STAR OF DAVID OR 'PLAIN STAR'?   If you thought "CP Time" was impolitic, on July 2 Donald Trump posted a picture on Twitter of a Star of David on top of a pile of cash next to Hillary Clinton's face. You'd think after the aforementioned crime stats incident (or after engaging a user called "@WhiteGenocideTM," or blasting out a quote from Benito Mussolini, or...) Trump would have learned to wait a full 15 seconds before hitting the "Tweet" button. But not only was the gaffe itself bad, the attempts at damage control made the BP oil spill response look a virtuoso performance.  About two hours after the image went up on Trump's account, somebody took it down and replaced it with a similar picture that swapped the hexagram with a circle (bearing the same legend "Most Corrupt Candidate Ever!"!). Believe it or not, it actually got worse from there. As reports arose that the first image had originated on a white supremacist message board, Trump insisted that the shape was a "sheriff's star," or "plain star," not a Star of David. And he continued to sulk about the coverage online and in public for days afterward, even when the media was clearly ready to move on. This refusal to just let some bad press go would haunt him later on.
