George Will: Country Eager to “Feel Good About Itself” by Voting for a Black Man

Sam Stein on HuffPo today writes about George Will’s comments on the Powell endorsement of Obama.

There will be “some impact,” Will declared. “And I think this adds to my calculation — this is very hard to measure — but it seems to me if we had the tools to measure we’d find that Barack Obama gets two votes because he’s black for every one he loses because he’s black because so much of this country is so eager, (a) to feel good about itself by doing this, but more than that to put paid to the whole Al Sharpton/Jesse Jackson game of political rhetoric.”
