Geraldine Ferraro Flips Out

Man, does Geraldine Ferraro ever play the 'they' card in her recent column. I had to keep revisiting up page to remind me of just who she is talking about. Like here...
Whom he chooses for his vice president makes no difference to them. That he is pro-choice means little. Learning more about his bio doesn't do it. They don't identify with someone who has gone to Columbia and Harvard Law School and is married to a Princeton-Harvard Law graduate. His experience with an educated single mother and being raised by middle class grandparents is not something they can empathize with. They may lack a formal higher education, but they're not stupid. What they're waiting for is assurance that an Obama administration won't leave them behind.
I had to go back to the previous, long paragraph that began with 'Reagan Democrats,' and even then I had to infer from a Riverdance of choreographed foot-stomping 'they's that she seemed to be talking about white people.  Then, in the penultimate para ---
What they're waiting for is assurance that an Obama administration won't leave them behind.
Again, the 'they' [okay, you can use "those people" but only on whites, you hear?] has drifted from its stereotypical moorings so far it scarcely resembles caucasians. Are South Carolina's white Democrats really fearful of being left behind? And if they are, what do they expect a black president to do for them?

Ferraro's indistinct stance is overcreamed coffee. I'll take my Geraldine black, please, in the form of Flip Wilson.

To her circle of lady friends on the occasion of Geraldine's having had her hair bleached blonde ---

"How do ya'll like my hair, Honey? You don't think it makes me look too Polish, do you?"
