Judging the Kennedy gaffe
I am fascinated by the even split regarding the acceptability of Hillary Clinton's comments on Bobby Kennedy: I still think that on balance she was tired and made a (reasonably) honest mistake, though the case against that view is worth hearing.
As for this: What a classy woman! What a classy joke! What a classy show!
Incidentally, I am grateful to those who pointed out (and this had not occurred to me) that the electoral calendar has changed significantly and that the examples Mrs Clinton gave do not in any case serve her argument very well.
Eugene Robinson has always struck me as a gentle, warm-hearted person but the fact that the calendar argument is false is for him the clincher - and appears to have goaded even this mild-mannered commentator into anger.
