Emil Guillermo: No wussy approach on Ed Rendell’s “wussy-gate.” Rendell’s China comparison was racebaiting at its worst

Interesting how all the comments on Pennsylvania Governor Ed Rendell’s wussy remarks want to focus on America’s softness.  I happen to agree that Americans are overprotective but only because we’re over litigious.

My complaint with Rendell is why he pulled the China card in his comments to prove America’s wussiness.

If Rendell were John Stewart I might think about giving him a pass.

But he’s no John Stewart. (Just like John Stewart’s no Edward R. Murrow).

Rendell is governor in a state where dozens of Asian American and Asian immgrant students have been  harassed at a South Philadelphia high school. It was so bad the Department of Justice had to be called in.
