Being a reformed Clintonista myself (read: more liberal now), whenever I hear Bill Clinton get into campaign mode, I’m reminded why Clinton was so impossible to beat.  Bill’s back on the air lately, and I’m emerging from post-election cocoon, so here it is.

The email smear campaign against Barack Obama hasn’t stopped since it bubbled up from the primordial wingnut ooze in 2007.  It’s metastasized into the backbone of their policy.  In fact, it has become the Republican Party’s entire message.  The birther wing took over.  That means there is nothing in the Republican playbook this year, this mid-term, that […]

FFS. Probably one of the biggest political junkies of all time and someone who tried (and failed) to pass health care reform won’t attend a free clinic because Keith Olbermann made it too political?

Oh for good god damned sakes you have got to be kidding me. Earth to Bill Clinton: This shit has been political from day one. Don’t go all weak kneed on us now. You’re doing nobody any favors by making lame attempts to be above the fray. Get in the game or go the hell back to Arkansas and drive your AstroTurf? lined El Dorado […]

The Other SNL Skit

On October 1, 2008 By

Palin, Palin, Palin. Yes, I know. It’s brilliant. But this is damned funny:

Full Story...

A buddy mentioned this to me via IM and I swore that she said “proud wife”. She didn’t:

I am honored to be here tonight. A proud mother. A proud Democrat. A proud American. And a proud supporter of Barack Obama.

Full Story...

This can kiss my ass.

Because of this:

WASHINGTON (CNN) — Former President Bill Clinton and Barack Obama talked by phone Monday morning, the Obama campaign and a Clinton spokesman said.

Clinton said he is prepared to campaign for Obama after the hard-fought primary campaign between Obama and Hillary Clinton, the Obama campaign said.

Obama “had a terrific conversation with President Clinton and is honored to have his support in this campaign,” said campaign spokesman Bill Burton.

Clinton “renewed his offer to do whatever he can to ensure Sen. Obama is our next president,” said Matt McKenna, communications […]

There. I said it. Don’t look for me to apologize for it either. It won’t happen. I think she just crossed my threshold of whether or not I’d support her in anything ever again. I don’t want her as VP. I don’t want her as a Senator. I don’t want her cleaning out the lint trap in my shower.

I’m fucking done with you, Hillary. You fucking bitch.

Her latest reason for staying in a race that she has zero hope of winning and which continues to divide Democrats and give cover to those who would cut off […]

Hillary and The Little People

On April 17, 2008 By

You’ve no doubt heard about “Screwemgate“, the story about a meeting in which Hillary was to exclaim about working class white southerners:

“Screw ’em,” “You don’t owe them a thing, Bill. They’re doing nothing for you; you don’t have to do anything for them.”

I didn’t really think much of this. Off hand comment in a closed door session talking politics. Many things get said not for general consumption.

Today, however, we get some additional context by someone who was there and it’s pretty damning:

I vividly remember at the time finding it impressive that Bill Clinton […]

Remember Bill’s “Chill Out” thing? Everybody just calm down and let’s let this thing play out. That’s good cop Bill. This is bad cop Bill:

According to those at the meeting, Clinton – who flew in from Chicago with bags under his eyes – was classic old Bill at first, charming and making small talk with the 15 or so delegates who gathered in a room behind the convention stage.

But as the group moved together for the perfunctory photo, Rachel Binah, a former Richardson delegate who now supports Hillary Clinton, told Bill how “sorry” she was to […]

Bill Clinton: “Rural Hitman”

On March 19, 2008 By

LOL. What gives with this guy’s language lately?

Clinton dubbed himself as the “rural hitman” of his wife’s campaign, and said he enjoys taking his wife’s campaign to places like Lawrenceburg, a small blue-collar town just across the state line from Cincinnati.

Full Story...

They don’t call him Slick Willy for nothing. Bill Clinton, in an attempt to re-write history, tries to claim that his statement in South Carolina was not playing the race card. Funny thing is, he just can’t resist the temptation to do it again:

(CNN) — Former President Bill Clinton defended his role in his wife’s presidential campaign in South Carolina, disputing claims he made race a campaign issue.

“What happened there is a total myth and a mugging,” Clinton told CNN’s Sean Callebs in New Orleans, Louisiana, over the weekend.

“Wink wink nudge nudge people of Pennsylvania! What […]

These folks are unbelievable. Literally!

What do you do when you are getting thumped long after you thought the election would be over and you are unable to make up any significant ground?

Offer your opponent a VP slot in a disingenuous strategy to make yourself look like the uniter and not the divider that you are:

Hillary and Bill Clinton are again teaming up on Barack Obama — this time saying the first-term U.S. lawmaker, whom they have derided as inexperienced, would be a strong running mate on a Democratic presidential ticket headed by the former first […]
