The audacity of lope

We are all familiar with the Democratic hit and run operation, metaphorically speaking, in which the cry of “racism” is followed by the “move on” maneuver. Louisiana state senator Karen Carter Peterson — the chairman of the state Democratic party — brings the metaphor to life as she runs away from local television reporters who ask about her declaration that opponents of Obamacare are driven by racism.

NRO’s Jim Geraghty cheers her on: “Run, State Senator, Run!” I preferred the suspenseful German film version, but the American variation as farce (video below, via Jim’s funny post) isn’t bad either.
