Clinton and Hatred

I have Clinton-hatred, but I define it as the hatred I have for the hypocritical Republicans who put our country through the impeachment fiasco. Impeachment? For that? As I watched day by day the impeachment show with its asinine Republicans forcing that carnival I knew that they had no agenda except to destroy. And the Republicans who have come along since them are even worse. They do want to destroy the country. And that’s why I don’t truck with any pandering toward them now. I want someone who will kick their treasonist asses.

And now when impeachment would be healing rather than destroying there is no one to do it.

Instead of Obama Paying Clinton Campaign Debts

 How about Clinton contributes massively to the Obama campaign for all the extra campaign expenditures he had to make because of her intransigence? Payback. Or as Van Gogh would say, terugbetaling.

Predictive Science

 I suppose polling is scientific, but if that is the science that was used to prove evolution I’m gonna become a doubter.

Clinton won Indiana, but it was within the margin of error. :-)

Brokeback Clinton

Clinton is giving Obama a vetting he’ll never forget. And neither will we. She’s broken her own back by trying to break his. But Clinton’s campaign is an almost perfect model of how the Republicans will act in the GE: the identity-attacks, the litigiousness, the pandering, using the powers that be that she is a part of. To paraphrase Kill Bill: Did I think she could do this. Yes. But I didn’t think she would do it to her own Party.

Hillary has taken me on what is now a ubiquitous journey from supporting her, to defending her, to supporting Obama, to finding her despicable. If she wanted to devalue hope, she’s done it.
Couple of thoughts:

Hillary might think she’s immune to rightwing attacks, but she is creating many new occasions for ridicule with her Bosnia comments, and her CiC claims. And don’t think the Republicans wouldn’t love to have the “she stole the nomination” thing to attack.

If the primary goes to the convention, Clinton will be renounced and rejected in a very public way. Does she really want that?

Moment of silence for Richard Widmark.

Comments I've Made on Carpetbagger Report

When rightwing publications make spurious attacks on Hillary Clinton, Obama should refuse to respond to it and especially refuse to respond in a way that accepts it as true and really especially shouldn't tack on their own complaints in their response. It would help dispel the appearance that Obama is okay with benefiting from the Clinton-hatred noise machine.

The danger is for Obama to be piggybacking on wingnut attacks to launch his own attacks.

They came for Hillary, but I wasn’t Hillary so I did nothing. Then they came for me…

Being gullible about rightwing innuendos because they are "easy to believe" is a weak-ass substitute for thinking.

Clinton Rules state that anything the least bit controversial the Clintons or their surrogates say will be reverberated through the rightwing noise machine.
Temporary Obama Rules (they’ll change if he’s the candidate) state that he’s not nitpicked so much.

The kid who hits back gets caught. Another Clinton Rule is that when she responds to an attack, it is her attack that gets highlighted without the context of the
