We're white, we're white, we're really really white...
...we're really really really whiiiite:
(CNN) – Carly Fiorina, a supporter of Sen. John McCain and the chair of the Republican National Committee’s Victory 2008 campaign, took aim at Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean over racially-tinged comments Dean made Friday.
“If you look at folks of color, even women, they’re more successful in the Democratic Party than they are in the white, uh, excuse me, in the Republican Party,” Dean said Friday in an appearance on NPR’s “Tell Me More” program.
Fiorina, a prominent female supporter of McCain, fired back at Dean. “It is disappointing to see Howard Dean trying to use gender and race to divide voters," Fiorina said Friday evening in a statement released by the McCain campaign. "His comments are insulting, inappropriate and have no place in this election.”
Oh, yes, 'cause there we just SO MANY people of color attending, oh, say, the 2004 RNC convention:
And Fiorina's comment is interesting, given that the Dems were the first ones to even attempt to run a woman as a candidate. Where are the Republican women who're qualified to run for President? What happened to the big talk a few years back about Elizabeth Dole as a candidate?
Or is there an unspoken assumption in the Party that their base wouldn't accept A GI-RUL as President?
