When Politics Reflects Sports

...we come down much harder on sports.

Geraldine Ferraro is to Rush Limbaugh as Barack Obama is to Donovan McNabb.

From ABC News' Political Punch:
Clinton campaign finance committee member, former vice presidential candidate, and former Rep. Geraldine Ferraro, D-NY, told the Daily Breeze of Torrance, Ca., that, "If Obama was a white man, he would not be in this position. And if he was a woman (of any color) he would not be in this position. He happens to be very lucky to be who he is. And the country is caught up in the concept."
Is she saying that the public "has been very desirous that a black [presidential hopeful] do well?"

For some reason I don't see Walter Mondale's former running mate getting as much flack for this as the overweight pundit did.
