Racists oppose Turner for lt. gov.
At least that's how I look at it.
Now, thankfully, Mayor Richard M. Daley, is speaking out in support of Turner, because he came in second place. Although, his spoken reason is typically Daley: "If you run for public office and the person drops out before the
election or even after the election, the person who was second moves
automatically up. If you forfeit a game, you win the game."
Couldn't have been said better by Yogi Berra.
Still, Daley's position is fair, logical and not racist. If Democratic leaders truly want to achieve "balance" on the ticket, perhaps they should be looking for a African-American Downstate woman.
But, we know better than that, don't we?
