Obama's Color Coordinated Crowd

Last night, Howling Latina picked up a link recounting how Michelle Obama asked for more whites to come to the front of the bus.

This morning, Ben Smith of Politico weighs in:

I'm not sure there's any real reason for outrage here; every campaign, at least implicitly, includes race in the staging of events like this -- even a campaign whose supporters chant "race doesn't matter." But they don't usually get caught doing it this explicitly.

And (if you didn't pick it up from the bowling) it does give you a sense of the community Obama's trying to reach in Pennsylvania: whitefolks.

Talk Left asks people to just imagine the outrage if Hillary or Bill had been overheard asking for more black folks...

No media bias here; nope, none at all...
