“You know, I’m going to start thanking the woman who cleans the restroom in the building I work in. I’m going to start thinking of her as a human being”
(From the book “The Case Against Hillary Clinton” by Peggy Noonan, p. 55)

Hillary Clinton is booed in New York!
At a religious MLK rally in New York City Hillary gets booed again.
The Politico reported:
Dogged by continuing racial tensions around her presidential campaign, Hillary Rodham Clinton drew a smattering of boos on Monday when she spoke at a religiously tinged Martin Luther King Jr. rally put together by a union organizing predominantly black security workers.
The catcalls came when Clinton was introduced and her speech drew only tepid applause compared to the boisterous ovations drawn by many of the pastors and reverends — not to mention a hip-hop artist and slam poet — who took the podium before her.
YouTube has video of Hillary’s “socialist revolution” (12:10) talk in New York today.
–Note the accent–
UPDATE: Beto Ochoa sent in a poem he wrote in recognition of this moment of Democratic identity crisis:
Ode To Democrat Identity Disunity
Oh how the walls rebound
The hate that you’ve sworn takes the day
Your own great defect is found circumspect
And broken the game that you played.
You sought to divide and defeat
Yet seems your dogs turned and attacked
A monster to rend you the press can’t defend you
And now your own party is hacked
UPDATE 2: Doug Ross has more on the racial politics of the Democrats.
