Now Kucinich is actually a liberal.

I think a typical person may be cautious of strangers?

watch and listen for yourself

Hmm, I don't care much for that "she's a typical white person" comment. I don't think he believes in such stereotypes and I'm surprised he would say it that way. By person she doesn't know I assume he means African American, since he referenced that before. Is he right though, do most white people react in that way? I think it depends upon situations and surroundings that you are in.

I had a racist grandfather, unfortunately- and I talk about that with people, I don't hide it. Why should he? I'm not even saying she's racist and neither is he, if I interpret what he is saying correctly.

this grandma bru-ha-ha reminds me of nothing more than the "cheap, tawdry" trick that John Edwards pulled in the VP debate by daring to mention that -- shock! -- the Cheneys have a gay daughter.

Well I did catch a 2 hour nap today. This happens once every 2 months, I'll hit a 5 day patch where I can't harldy sleep at all, then I'll go back to my "normal" sleep pattern which is still pretty insomniatic...

So if I start praising Bush or argue for more guns, it's just the sleep deprivation talking...

Some people are responding 'what if HC (or John McCain for that matter) said someone is a "typical black person" for responding in a certain way to a certain situation'-regardless of the context and I know Senator Obama said that in a certain context. So what if? And why?

If someone wants Obama to be their president.


They should also accept that he may see them as a "typical white person".

This would be a change.

A President with "Rev Wright" thinking?

Exactly.

Can Obama please explain what a "typical white person" is?

I don't think using that phrase one time in public makes Senator Obama a person with Rev Wright thinking-that's a leap. I do not believe he thinks at all like Rev Wright does (and he does think in other ways besides those snippets we have seen).

I guess it would be different than homophobic right that doesn't care for black people*.

You're right, that's a deep... I mean a leap.

His campaign has clarified that he meant she was typical in that she has/had fears typical for someone of his grandmother's generation-that's what ABC news said.

Maybe your hero could tell you, he's an expert in race relations...

Today Rush played his favorite song again, 'Barack the Magic Negro'...
