Clinton Compares Reverend Wright To Don Imus


Senator Hillary Clinton, in the thick of campaigning for President, compared, in battleground Pennsylvania, Reverend Wright’s remarks to those Don Imus made on the Rutgers women’s basketball team. From The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review (link via ABC’s Political Punch):

”You know, I spoke out against Don Imus (who was fired from his radio and television shows after making racially insensitive remarks), saying that hate speech was unacceptable in any setting, and I believe that,’ Clinton said. ‘I just think you have to speak out against that. You certainly have to do that, if not explicitly, then implicitly by getting up and moving.”’

Imus, for his part, has publicly said he is backing McCain.
