They don’t call him Slick Willy for nothing. Bill Clinton, in an attempt to re-write history, tries to claim that his statement in South Carolina was not playing the race card. Funny thing is, he just can’t resist the temptation to do it again:

(CNN) — Former President Bill Clinton defended his role in his wife’s presidential campaign in South Carolina, disputing claims he made race a campaign issue.

“What happened there is a total myth and a mugging,” Clinton told CNN’s Sean Callebs in New Orleans, Louisiana, over the weekend.

“Wink wink nudge nudge people of Pennsylvania! What happened in South Carolina was I GOT MUGGED! BY THE BLACK GUY! I went down to South Carolina and I got mugged! Did I mention Democratic voters in that state are 55% black? Wink.”

It’d be funny if it weren’t so sad. You played the race card, Bill. Seriously. There was no other reason to mention Jesse Jackson than to paint Obama as “the black guy”. We get it. Now please just STFU already!

    Jesus, Eric, Clinton can’t even use the phase “mugging” without it being racial?!?

    Anyone who watching hockey regularly knows that the term mugging isn’t a racially charged word.

    You and other Obama supporters see racial overtones when there are none. And the use of the term “mugging” is a prime example.

    For a supporter of the “Candidate of Hope”(TM), you guys sure are the most cynical, pessmistic, and whiny bunch I’ve ever seen. This is just ridiculous.

  • @2: We can disagree. When it comes to Bill and his recent history though I don’t give him much leeway on the subject.

  • @2: Question though Modern. Do you think what happened in SC was a myth? Do you think Clinton got “mugged”? Or do you think he was playing the race card. Be interesting to hear from a Hillary and Bill apologist on the matter.
