Bill Clinton seems to think that he is, inexplicably, a “stand-in for the first black president,” as he so carefully explained this week.

“Unless your ancestors, every one of you, are 100 percent, 100 percent from sub-Saharan Africa, we are all mixed-race people,” said the former president at a campaign event in Memphis on Friday, downplaying President Barack Obama’s accomplishments.

Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has not yet commented on the incident. But a good hunch tells me that as he spoke, somewhere just off stage left, Clinton stood, the steam of a thousand raging hell-fires bursting forth from her ears.
