    Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said Herman Cain should not be playing the race card in an interview aired after the former pizza executive said he is being attacked by liberals for his race but not by conservatives.

    "I actually am someone who-- doesn't believe in playing the race card on either side. I've seen it played, by the way, on the other side quite a lot too. And it's not good for the country," Rice told CBS' Norah O'Donnell in an interview that aired on CBS' "The Early Show" on Wednesday.

    Asked on Tuesday if race had anything to do with the allegation of sexual harassment more than a decade ago, Cain told Fox News analyst Charles Krauthammer "I believe the answer is yes, but we do not have any evidence to support it."

    Rice is correct.
    And I see you agree with Rice as well.
    So how do you feel about it when it is used by the other side? The same way?
    Or do you believe it is not used by the other side?

    It's used by everyone.

    Cain has made it into an art form.

    It was made into an art form years before Cain hit the national scene.

    But I do like it when one calls it out on a member of their own party.

    To me, THAT is a major breakthrough.

    Wait.

    What?

    Exactly how is claiming that Cain made it into an art form, and excusing it by saying it's 'used by everyone' calling out her own party?

    What Ravi did was justify it, not condemn it.

    Personally, I think Obama made it into an art form. Hell, he won an election by lying about it.

    Cain really should stop talking about it. He kinda does that "I don't care about race" thing, then goes on about how he is black.

    We know.

    And I'm sure you said the same thing about Obama, right?


    Oh wait.


    No. Then it was a 'big fucking deal'.

    Hypocrite.

    You are kidding me, right?

    There isn't enough bandwidth to cover every play of the race card by the Messiah. Every fucking day, a new card. The difference was that you didn't see it. You see it now though... because Cain's a black conservative instead of a black liberal.
