As noted earlier, I'm done with Hillary Clinton
. If she can justify a foreign government's attack on American citizens, then to hell with her. From the beginning, I feared that association with our current wretched administration would work to her discredit.
That said, Riverdaughter's latest is brilliantly-written stuff
Yes, the Tea Party Republicans were responsible for setting fire to a fragile economy but Obama lent them the match. He’s a disaster of boutique governance, first appeasing one group of electoral voters, then another, making it up as he goes along, reactively tailoring policy to the interest group du jour.
The latest party propaganda on the subject comes from Joan Walsh at Salon. Joan acknowledges that the party may have made a mistake in 2008 but you won’t hear Joan upset the weenie tray at the cocktail party. No, indeed. Joan is ready to commit the country to another four years of Obama just so she doesn’t get associated with the delusional Hillary diehards. And you know who Joan has been swilling margaritas with by the content of her posts. By their memes ye shall know them.
I'm convinced that Hillary would be a much better bad president than Obama is, but the same can be said of the kid behind the counter at your nearest McDonalds. We need someone else. Elizabeth Warren sounds good. So does Russ Feingold. Jeez, I wouldn't mind Kerry or Biden, even though those names will probably cause my readers to howl and yowl.
You have to grant Mr. O's brilliance at dealing with his in-party adversaries. Biden and Clinton were brought inside the Obama shithouse, where they too could be beshitted. Edwards self-destructed.
Hm. Edwards. Did someone on Obama's staff help to trip him up? Or rather, help to expose his self-trippage?
A woman named Pigeon O'Brien
has confessed that she was the person who leaked the Edwards affair to the National Enquirer. (O'Brien and Rielle Hunter worked together on a website called "Being is Free," a title that makes me want to toss more cookies than the Keebler elves see in a year.) On the other hand, during the primaries, Edwards secretly offered to endorse Obama if the latter promised him the veep spot. You'd think that Mr. O would have snapped up that deal, since Hillary began to overtake him in the later contests. This sequence of events leads me to suspect that the O team knew that Edwards had a secret.
Anyways: Sorry, Riverdaughter. I don't think you're a nutcase for supporting Hillary. But she's done. Dee yew enn done
Riverdaughter and I have one thing in common: The sorry outcome of 2008 gave us both I-told-you-so
rights for the next zillion years. And a thousand Joan Walshes can't take that away from us.
