Never in my adult life-time would I ever imagined I would write these words - "poor Hillary." Boo.Freaking.Hoo.
But it is kind of pathetic to see this power-hungry, grasping woman so utterly fail to connect with the all-knowing, all-seeing, all self-important purveyors of public opinion--MSM.
Even her loyalistas like Terry McAuliffe are stating the obvious: Obama be Da Man.
As Hillary racks up another win today in West Virginia, the campaign is stalling, fund-raising is down, and even her friends are suggesting exit strategies (offering help in paying off her campaign debts) while Democrats keep jumping over to the most liberal Democrat candidate in American history, Barry Hussein Obama.
The good news is America will finally be able to shrug off her despicable, narcissistic, and thorougly annoying husband Bill. It's refreshing to see that even Democrats are exhausted by the Hill -Bill(ies) from Arkansas.
I am still waiting, though, for the October surprise. In May. The Clinton operatives will pull something out of their vast files gleaned from the oppo research crews working 24/7 to discredit, er, illuminate the public about BHO.
...can't wait for that!
Over at Pajamas Media, Drunk-Blogging from West Virginia hoists an adult beverage while analyzing the race.
Meanwhile, race continues to be the determining factor in the formerly colorblind Democratic party:
Racially motivated voting appeared to be running higher than usual: Two in 10 whites said the race of the candidate was a factor in their vote, second only to Mississippi. And only a third of those voters said they’d support Obama as the nominee against John McCain, fewer than in other primaries where the question has been asked.
It looks like the chickens of multiculturalism have come home to roost. Boston.com’s Foon Rhee notes the same problem and says:
Among those supporting Hillary Clinton, just 36 percent said they would vote for Barack Obama in November, while 35 percent would defect to Republican John McCain, according to the exit polls conducted for the TV networks and the Associated Press.
Among Obama voters, barely a majority, 51 percent, said they would vote for Clinton in November.
John Fund at The Wall Street Journal re-posts an excellent analysis from Michael Crowley.
"The Clintons find themselves victimized and under siege. The presidency is being stolen from them. The press is out to get them. They deride elites and champion the masses. They live in a constant state of emergency. But they will endure any humiliation, ride out any crisis, fight on even when fighting seems hopeless. That might sound like a fair summary of how Bill and Hillary Clinton have viewed the past five months. But it also happens to describe what, until now, was the greatest ordeal of the Clintons' almost comically turbulent political careers: impeachment. That baroque saga hardened the Clintonian worldview about politics and helps to explain their approach to this brutal campaign season. The Clintons have been here before, you see. They're being impeached all over again" -- columnist Michael Crowley, writing in the New Republic.
Not to pile on or anything (I have never been accused of that in reference to the Clintons!) but nobody seems to be picking up on Mrs. Bill Clinton's OWN Pastor problem.
