Rendell: Pennsylvania Democrats Too Racist to Vote for Obama

Of course he doesn't come out and say it like that. He claims they're conservative.

What a jerk.
Gov. Ed Rendell, one of Hillary Rodham Clinton's most visible supporters, said some white Pennsylvanians are likely to vote against her rival Barack Obama because he is black.

"You've got conservative whites here, and I think there are some whites who are probably not ready to vote for an African-American candidate," Rendell told the editorial board of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette in remarks that appeared in Tuesday's paper.

To buttress his point, Rendell cited his 2006 re-election campaign, in which he defeated Republican challenger Lynn Swann, the former Pittsburgh Steelers star, by a margin of more than 60 percent to less than 40 percent.
I don't recall seeing many Democrats voting for Swann. His support came from the GOP--you know--those who usually are the conservatives.


Meanwhile, I see plenty of whites in Virginia must have voted for Obama.

Guess they're not as racist there as the Democrats in Pennsylvania.
