Louisiana Senator Mary Landrieu (D) who is in a tight race for re-election (as are a whole etouffee pot of Democrats nation-wide) has revealed to the world that the reason her campaign is in jeopardy is because of … racism. Oh, and sexism.
“I’m going to be very, very honest with you. The South has not always been the friendliest place for African-Americans. It’s been a difficult time for the president to present himself in a very positive light as a leader.
“It’s not always been a good place for women to be able to present ourselves. It’s more of a conservative place, so we’ve had to work a little bit harder on that.”
