"Lordy! Lordy! Look at you scrapin' away down there, Hillary?" 26 February, 2008

Reference Number: DCDL-0005592

Shows Democratic presidential candidate, Barack Obama, peering into a barrel of dirt and seeing his rival candidate, Hillary Clinton, scraping away. He comments on the digging for dirt in the language of the poor southern black man 'Lordy! Lordy! Look at you scrain' away down there, Hillary?' Refers to Hillary Clinton's getting down and dirty in her increasingly desperate struggle to win votes in the democratic presidential candidate elections. In the lower right hand corner a tiny Bill Clinton says 'Taught'er all I know about scrapin' bottoms!' which is a reference to his sexual exploits while in office.
