Would Somebody Please Shut This Honorary Negro Up!?!?

Things clearly aren't going well for the Clintons right about now. First Barack Obama delivers the proverbial pimp slap in Monday night's debate. Then Bill gets caught on tape snoozing during an MLK day celebration. Today, Hillary decides to forgo campaigning in SC altogether. But her husband, who clearly must always have the last laugh, took a parting shot at the Obama campaign, accusing them of (what else?) race baiting.

Former President Bill Clinton made it clear he's had it with complaints that his wife's campaign is playing a dirty game of racial division, CBS News anchor Katie Couric reports.

"This is crazy. This rhetoric is getting a little carried away here," Clinton said.

"She did not play the race card, but they did," he said.
Motherf***** say what!?!?
According to reports, a South Carolina Democratic official who supports Barack Obama claimed the Clintons were borrowing a page from the Republican playbook: injecting race into the campaign. That, apparently, was too much.

"This, this is almost like once you accuse somebody of racism or bigotry or something, the facts become irrelevant," Clinton said.

He suggested the Obama campaign and accomplices in the news media were promoting the charge.

"They're feeding you this because this is what you want to cover; this is what you live for, but this hurts the people of South Carolina," he told a reporter. "What you care about is this and the Obama people know this, so they spin you up on this and you happily go along."
I could have really missed something, but I didn't see a single "race related" charge that originated from the Obama camp. Just lots of justifiable replies and responses when the Clinton camp threw race into the equation. Yes, the Obama campaign is guilty of circulating that press release bringing attention to the greasy talk The Clinton Machine has thrown out there, but can you blame a person for defending himself when being slandered? Seriously?

I look at all this and can only conclude that the Clintons don't give half a crap (would that technically be a turd?) about Bill's tumped up legacy as "The First Black President" anymore. They just wanna win, which is certainly understandable. But blaming the Obama camp for injecting race into the equation is asinine, and borderline delusional.

Question: Did AB miss something here, or has the Black President officially lost his mind?
