As a side note, I am really not prepared for all the intra-party ugliness over the next six months. I feel like I still haven’t recovered from the Obamabot/PUMA wars of 2007-08.
Oh, John, you poor thing! I feel your pain!
So Hillary wins by ten in Ohio (54-44), ekes out a 3% win in Texas (51-48), and the delegate lead doesn’t change one bit, but somehow we are supposed to believe this has radically changed the race. It hasn’t, but such is the narrative of spin.
Meanwhile, Republicans celebrate, and the Clinton campaign has learned that dumpster diving and going negative pays off.
I already hate being a Democrat. The other party is united around a doddering old warmonger who they swore just a few weeks ago they would never vote for, and the Democrats are busy tearing the party apart from the inside out so that we can continue the 28 year old Bush/Clinton dynasty.
*** Update ***
And I forgot the worst thing- I am in the Pennsylvania television markets. I am going to have to suffer through weeks of Clinton commericals lying about Obama.
It must have been a real asshole who wrote that!
While I have no problem with the generic principle of her staying in the race, we are now approaching the point where it is mathematically impossible for her to win without the super-delegates over-turning the vote of the people. She needs to win Ohio and Texas by large margins. Not win by a point or two, not lose by a point or two, but win 65-35 or better. Not to mention, I am more than a little tired of her people cutting the McCain campaign commercials. but the nagain, you knew it would come to this. You have no one to blame but yourself if you were surprised that all of a sudden, Ohio and Texas don’t matter.
I have a ton of stuff going on, and I am actually sick of the primaries. Sorry for the lack of posting,, but all I really have to say right now would start to sound like Sullivanesque Hillary Derangement syndrome.
I simply can not believe that with the Republican party completely bereft of ideas, McCain willingly taking on the luggage of the Bush years and the Iraq war, and Team Hillary has decided to make this primary about “experience” and is launching ads that look like they have the RNC seal of approval.
Well played. I really am looking froward to a Clinton free era
Queue the Hillbots to tell me this is just an anonymous smear against Hillary. The rest of us recognize this for what it is- an increasingly desparate Clinton campaign resorting to what they really understand- strong-arming people to get their way.
Following on Tim’s great post from last night, let me explain where I am with the Clintons: I can’t handle hearing about them anymore. I am sick of them. They suck the oxygen out of the room, they and their rabid detractors make everything about them, and despite my best efforts to be fair to Hillary, it just keeps coming back to one central fact:
I can’t take 8 more years of Clinton.
Shall I go on?
Fuck you, John. Did you think there would be no consequences for the shitstorm you helped unleash?
You made your bed, now STFU and go lay in it. Sow the wind, reap the whirlwind.
