I was pleased to hear of Hillary’s substantial victory in Pennsylvania last night —as was a certain female relative of mine who updated me multiple times by phone as I am a presently unwired at home.
I say Hillary is doing the party and the nation a great service by sticking around to expose Obama’s candidacy as the dangerous, but very well-told, joke that it is. She may be fighting a lost cause, but some of us like that in a campaigner. Especially in one whose opponent has been fluffed by every Big Media toilet attendant from Keith Olbermann on up.
Oh, and Obama’s supporters owe the rest of us an apology for their recklessness.
I’ll be waiting, losers.
I could only spend about ten minutes this morning watching Russert talk to the Obama and Clinton campaigns’ chief strategists until I began to notice that they suck and are barely able to form a worthwhile thought between themselves.
There’s really nothing else to say about the Democratic race: the party has decided it will go ahead and confirm the ignorance and lizard-brainedness of its base and award its nomination —its Presidential nomination— to someone who is clearly unqualified and cannot win. What are they thinking of?
For a party convinced that their view is the only right one, they sure seem determined to make an obvious error.
As usual, Hillary outdid Obama in the debate in Philadelphia the other night. That’s because the debate format, such as it is, does not serve Obama’s preferred method of communication, which is apparently subliminal and pre-cognitive. Hillary, on the other hand, can’t reach the masses in that way, so she actually has to share specific ideas and details. Even when they may be questionable.
But, as time goes by, Hillary’s plan of wearing the Southside Messiah down appears to be working. On the question of his most recently expressed disdain for the God-n-guns crowd, Obama attempted to elaborate:
And so the point I was making was that when people feel like Washington’s not listening to them, when they’re promised year after year, decade after decade, that their economic situation is going to change, and it doesn’t, then politically they end up focusing on those things that are constant, like religion.
Get that? When the Government doesn’t give you the answers or the help to which you are entitled, it’s no wonder that you’d turn to religion.
Did Hillary notice this Marxist rambling? Yep:
I don’t believe that my grandfather or my father, or the many people whom I have had the privilege of knowing and meeting across Pennsylvania over many years, cling to religion when Washington is not listening to them. I think that is a fundamental, sort of, misunderstanding of the role of religion and faith in times that are good and times that are bad.
And I similarly don’t think that people cling to their traditions, like hunting and guns, either when they are frustrated with the government. I just don’t believe that’s how people live their lives.
That’s why Hillary’s the grown-up in this race. Not that she’ll get credit with most for being less of a socialist than Obama, but I’ll point that out here, anyhow.
I would never have guessed that I should now expect an apology from the Democratic Party for the recklessness and stupidity of their nomination, but that’s what I’m wanting. What nonsense that these stupid hippies should try to foist such a mistake on the electorate.
By the way, it’s a lie to say that Americans like me won’t vote for a black man. I just won’t vote for this black man. This false choice doesn’t make me a racist; it just makes me mad.
I don’t know much about her, but she’s sorta cute.
Oh —and she’s the one Ronnie Earle didn’t endorse. That should tell you everything you need to know. In fact, it’s the only legitimate reason I had for voting for her last week.
I disapprove of so-called news stories where the “news” is some stupid poll number or result. That’s not news, friends: that’s some think-tank’s or news outfit’s propaganda masquerading as news. It’s horseshit. People should pay as little attention as possible to polls because they are, in themselves, not news; they are the freshly-withdrawn thermometers from the collective ass of John Q. Public, indicative of nothing.
Politicians should pay the least attention of all since this is, in fact, a representative form of government we have —and these morans ought to know from their own experience, judgement, and conscience whether they should vote yea or nay on the issues of the day. Only connivers and plotters chart their courses by the shifting winds of their constituents’ attitudes.
Hee hee: read this at Mary Ann Akers’ Washington Post blog:
In the “just plain bizarre” category, some “dude,” as our colleague Chris Cillizza, a.k.a, “the Fix,” tells us, got on today’s conference call with Hillary Clinton’s chief campaign strategist Mark Penn, communications director Howard Wolfson and deputy communications director Phil Singer and asked whether Clinton could “talk sexy” in her ads so he could “pinch the squid.”
Oh, man! Those crazy kids at the NSA can intercept anybody’s phone calls!
I recommend to one and all this great Michael Barone article on the differences in Obama’s and Hillary’s respective appeal to their party.
The liberal elites should be ashamed of the damage they’ve done to moderate Democratic sentiment.
This stuff about mixing human with cow is very unsettling. You know full well, though, that the way to godhood will come by way of financial incentives —sick though it may often be.
But if they come up with a way for me to sport some horsecock in me trousers, I’m all in, jackson! I’ve been champing at the bit to repopulate the world in just this way, so there’s one more reason why this is a great time to be alive.
What noisy cats are we.
It’s interesting, probably, to consider that Hillary Clinton is running for the Presidency by the same rationale that Bush the Younger had: because of her propinquity to the power of the Presidency. We certainly regard the sons and grandsons of Presidents as somehow suitable to the office —and it’s no great leap at all to think of a First Lady as nakedly ambitious as Hillary is to be likewise a possible President. Like Bush, though, Hillary knew she would have to pay her dues first, so she ran and won a seat in the United States Senate, just as ”W” had run for and won the governorship of Texas.
Of course, neither Hillary nor Bush the Younger have spent much time being explicit about this rationale because it would probably strike most of us as illogical at best and dynastic-minded at worst. Her experience as a First Lady entitles her to what? Well, as she fancies herself, somehow, an Eleanor Roosevelt rediviva, it is not entirely without precedent that many people would take her candidacy seriously. I know I do. I don’t like her a lot of the time and I would never vote for her when I can vote for a John McCain, but I have always had a special regard for her and her obvious intelligence and toughness. So, I “get” her candidacy. And it wasn’t entirely out of a desire for mischief that I voted for her in Texas’ open primary last month.
I just wish that she had gone negative on Barack Obama much earlier. It would have helped her and the rest of us dispense with the absurdity of Obama’s candidacy when the chance was still there.
I don’t know when it will happen, but there must be many thousands of libtard pundits, politicians, and hacks in the Obama camp who are going to wake up and realize that their candidate is not an acceptable choice for the White House.
Obama’s candidacy has exposed a lot of people as immature and incomplete thinkers. He has literally embarrassed the liberal Democratic establishment. The base won’t care because they were wanting this for a long time, but the opinion pushers? They’re manifestly idiots.
What did y’all do to put the party in this position? What were you thinking of?
