NEW YORK - Sen. Hillary Clinton on Monday blasted the Bush administration as “one of the worst” in U.S. history and compared the Republican-controlled House of Representatives to a plantation where dissenting voices are squelched....

The House “has been run like a plantation, and you know what I’m talking about,” said Clinton, D-N.Y.

No, actually, Senator. I really don't. A plantation?

Christ. Not exactly subtle, are you?

I may happen to agree that the current administration is handling things in a way that strikes me as supremely un-American on some levels, but comparing them to a plantation on Martin Luther King day? That's not only grotesque, but an open invitation to be attacked by your enemies.

Stuff a cork in it, please. Instead of using your power and influence to make eye-rolling statements in the hopes of bolstering your political profile, use it to work for your constituents. No matter how many times your handlers tell you otherwise, there's simply no way you're getting elected to the Presidency.
