Mary Mitchell discusses Andrew Young's comments...

On her Sun-Times blog back on December 9th...

I understand that elderly people can get pretty feisty in their senior years, but Andrew Young's comments about Sen. Barack Obama were disgusting, especially since Young is a civil rights icon. In an interview posted online, Young, 75, said Bill Clinton "is every bit as black as Barack" and "He's probably gone with more black women than Barack."
You can read the other paragraph there, but let's face it they were off base. Here are some other commentary on this story from around the bloggosphere.
