The Humbling: “The ONE” goes to Don Clinton

So, it appears that "The One" is going begging to Don Clinton, hat in hand:The One strides in confidently and extends his hand to The Don. The Don looks up, contemplates the proffered hand, and watches The One's smile fade as it is not shaken. The One retracts his hand, and tilts his head, comprehending, but not liking it. Still, he needs this meeting.Don Clinton nods slightly, and with a silky hand motions The One to take a seat. Don Clinton's blue eyes are grave, but there is a … [Read more...]

Obama, the Trophy Wife?

The anger of Ms. Christian and her Democrat sisters has perhaps less to do with the fact that Barack Obama is an “inadequate black male” than that he is the trophy wife for whom Mrs. Clinton — and by extension, her graying, menopausal supporters — has been thrown over.A trophy wife, of course, is the younger, less shopworn, unlined, doe-eyed, and sometimes opportunistic woman some middle-aged men marry upon achieving the measure of worldly success that puts them in more “elite” company. Mixin … [Read more...]

Hillary’s astonishing "misspeak" – UPDATED

I know, I know, to some my headline will seem strange. It is not news that Hillary is not averse to fibbing about cattle futures, fund raisers, or who who or what she can remember at any given moment. But even William Safire who, in 1996 called Hillary a congenital liar, had to have gasped at just how breathtakingly bold she can be in her tall tales:Does Hillary not realize that a thing called the internet has come along? Does she not realize that if she stands at a podium and tells a … [Read more...]

Jeremiah Wright, Steinem & Primacy of Victimhood

Okay, got lots of emails from folks decrying the "racism of Barack Obama's pastor," Jeremiah Wright, in this video.I watched the video twice, and I don't know if I'm seeing racism. I think I'm seeing anger, some of it reality-based and quite justified, some of it politically expedient for emotional manipulation, and some of it just strange."Jesus was a poor black man who lived in a country and in a culture that was controlled by rich white people [Romans rich and Italian, therefore … [Read more...]

Michelle Obama is just Hillary redux

Had an interesting exchange with someone in the press today, who noted that the big kahuna of the big-time-journalism outfit which signs the paycheck is fervently pro-Hillary, and seeks "to use Michelle Obama's first time I've been proud of my country' gaffe as a stick to beat Obama with.Thus, you see, helping Hillary with her difficult February.The irony here, of course, is that Michelle Obama is the circa-'92-Hillary of this election; she is the smart, tough, ivy-league-educated, loose … [Read more...]

Is Bill destroying Hill for his legacy?

It seems Bill is still not really helping the Hillary Campaign.Got an email from a reader directing me to Striken Fancy, who had linked to The Agitator who wonders if Bill Clinton is deliberately trying to sink Hillary? I thought at the time that Bill Clinton’s comments comparing Obama to Jesse Jackson were tacky and self-defeating, but I hadn’t really given them much more thought than that. But this guy made some interesting points.Bill Clinton has mastered southern politics all his life, t … [Read more...]

Obama rising, Hillary sliding

Clearly, Barack Obama has not yet peaked. He just resoundingly won Maine, and he even beat the Clintons out for a Grammy! Hey, the dude does have a great voice.It is both inspiring and a little nerve-wracking to read that he, without planning or security, gave an impromptu rally outside a Maine meeting hall, when it was too full to admit everyone: We waited in the longest line I had ever seen in my life for almost two hours...we were only a few hundred feet from the auditorium when we were … [Read more...]

A thought before Super Tuesday: UPDATED

:::SCROLL DOWN FOR UPDATE:::SCROLL DOWN FOR UPDATE:::Exit polls in South Carolina indicate that Bill Clinton's hijinks and race-baiting hurt Hillary more than helped her.So, what is next, for Clinton?I jokingly said to a friend last night that Clinton's racial remarks are becoming so bold that I fear he will next show up in a white suit, carrying a mint julep and drawling something about "uppity" classes.But of course, that was not serious. And it might have been a little … [Read more...]

Hillary disenfranchising? Press does not care.

In Michigan yesterday, Hillary "won" by having her opponents basically thrown off the ballot (a move Barack Obama - it must be said - had used to his advantage earlier in his career).Seems to me Mrs. Clinton and Mr. Obama are "of a piece" in their willingness to do anything, no matter how underhanded, to get what they want. It would not surprise me at all to see a Hillary/Obama ticket being talked up down the road, and my that would be interesting to watch. Can you imagine these two … [Read more...]

Shameless Hill Shill on NBC

Lucianne highlights this video at her home page, and I think it's a pretty interesting one, for several reasons, first because the woman sitting next to Matt Lauer (I don't watch the show - who is that?) is all but wearing a "Vote for Hillary" button on her breast - there is a most unseemly gushing going on there that sets off all my antennae and makes me want to buy a pair of waders.The video is interesting, secondly, because at almost the same time Eric at Classical Values is noting … [Read more...]
