I just watched 90 minutes of election coverage on CNN… 90 minutes that can best be summarized as 90 minutes of evidence that Sen. Obama’s brilliant race speech needs to revisited.
Because for 90 minutes the entire subtext of the conversation was that the black folks in Gary, Indiana were up to something sneaky because the votes took so long to be reported. Then, low and behold, the rest of the votes from Lake County came in and… guess what? The problem in the delay wasn’t with heavily black Gary, it was with the heavily rural polling places.
It was an ugly 90 minutes for CNN.
