By now, everyone has had time to enjoy the political shark-feed attending Senator Clinton’s remarks before the National Action Network during their commemoration of the birth of Martin Luther King jr.:

Asked “what distinguishes Democrats from Republicans right now,” she replied: “When you look at the way the House of Representatives has been run, it has been run like a plantation and you know what I'm talking about..."

An interesting view… But certainly not original…

Just before the ’94 elections that handed The House to the Republicans, Newt Gingrich, speaking of the Democratic leadership’s difficulty working with him, remarked “Since they think it is their job to run the plantation, it shocks them that I’m actually willing to lead the slave rebellion.”

So there you have it. A well known bloviator from each party opining the House is a plantation…

Which isn’t surprising, since it was created by plantation owners…
