I am not sure how much or how they screen the comments and that may have something to do with it. I am sure they don't want unrelated junk up there and that would be a big job to go through all those comments. Does it matter who is first or what order the put comments? Who could read all these comments? Now the article has 363 comments. Sometimes I find comments interesting and they are core to blogs and the net but it is overwhelming. Another top article has over 500 comments. When do they cut it off? and why do some articles allow comments and other do not?
Since I don't get many readers to this blog I figured I'd include my blog address half expecting the NYTimes to not post my comment or take out the website but it is included. I am adverstizing this brillinant blog on the NY Times for free. hmmmmm....
What do I think about Ferraro's comments:
Ferraro is honest and calls is like she sees it. She is right in that there is sexism against Clinton and the media has, to some extent, gotten swept up in the Obama excitment. She is even right that to some extent his race has helped him get support from some people however it is not fair to say “He happens to be very lucky to be who he is.” Racism is real is part of why he is not winning more voters and will be a major challange for the general election. Also, her attitude accepting partisianship as the status quo is exactly why people don’t like Clinton.
