Star Parker's Still On the Plantation
Topic: WorldNetDaily

Star Parker apparently still thinks only conservatives can use the "plantation" analogy.

We've noted that Parker was upset two years ago when Hillary Clinton used the analogy to describe the treatment of Democrats in the Republican-controlled Congress -- after all, Parker wrote a book called "Uncle Sam's Plantation," and she considers the analogy to be her personal territory. Parker is still trying to beat Clinton with the analogy in a Feb. 2 WorldNetDaily column:

Nothing can be more threatening to these politics than a successful, talented black man like Obama running as an American candidate rather than as a black candidate.

But a black off the plantation is the last thing Sen. Clinton wants. She wants blacks to feel impotent and vulnerable and in need of a political patron to hand them the goodies they need. 

Chalk Parker up as another conservative hypocritically condemning Clinton for using the "plantation" metaphor while freely using it herself.
