Frida Kahlo – What I Saw In The Water – 1938
I don’t know, seems to me Hagel wants to be an honorary Democrat, or something. Running all over, giving rise to chit chat… think he said yesterday Hillary was capable and he’d run iwth her.
Or Bloomberg… or whomever asks. How often can this motley crew bare their conservative souls to one another and French-kiss? Too often is my guess…
What a strange season, but just the one we have been working toward for 3 decades or more.
“I have to say this is one of the most arrogant, incompetent administrations I’ve ever seen or ever read about,” said Hagel, according to a report on the meeting that appeared in the Washington Post.
Speaking of Bush, Cheney and those around them, Hagel said: “They have failed the country.”
Honey, everybody failed the country. The country failed the people.
John Nichols gives Hillary advice. Seems messy to me. I think NH hostage taking was a wash for her. She would be falling anyway just now. Most of what Nichols says doesn’t even make sense to me…
I pulled the Rove memo to Obama forward, I just get a big kick out of reading it…
But her record is weak, her personality off-putting and her support thin. If she wins the nomination it will be because her rivals – namely you – were weak when you confronted her and could not look her in the eye when you did.
I have spent months thinking the games between Hillary and Obama were drama, to some extent. Tho I couldn’t really see, and do not see, what Bruce Dixon and Glen Ford at BAR have written about for months, that he would, or could, be a VP for her… now however it really is looking like it might be a bitter, somewhat nasty fight.
Obama has to appear a lot stronger tho, just my view….
Meanwhile back in the 90s (as it comes ’round again), Newt goes after Clinton character.
“He is fundamentally dishonest on a routine, regular basis,” said Gingrich. “It’s just his personality. He tells you the version he needs to be who he is to get through this week. And he just did it in Iowa over whether he used to be against the war in Iraq.”
I feel I am in a tub of congealing mayonnaise when I read that stuff again…
Hillary says she will step up attacks on her rivals, and … right off the top…
Cedar Rapids, Ia. — Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton ramped up criticism of Illinois Sen. Barack Obama today, and said his positions on health care and handling of campaign finance rules have begun to reflect on his character.
The Republicans are opening their oppo files.. “character”… hmm. I really think her slipping numbers are to do with character, hers, and a sense of unease people have with The Package.
Think I mentioned a few threads back that I am seeing ads for Michael Flatley’s Lord of the Dance. How can the 90s be two decades long. It seems fundamentally unfair. Fleetwood Mac should do us all a favor and NOT re-re-issue Greatest Hits. No.
Just catching the rerun of MTP with Webb… he says it is time for the Reagan Democrats to “come home”…and, must hunt up the transcript, I think he said they left for “social justice” reasons.
JesusFuckingChrist (as salient a political observation as anything I am hearing from Eugene Robinson, David Gregory, Brody of CBN and Michelle Norris on MTP) here is the transcript, he did say that:
One of the things that I was very strong about when I decided to run was that it was time for the Reagan Democrats to come home, the people who, on issues of economic fairness and, and, and social justice moved away from the Democratic Party and who, who have a reason to come back.
hmm Now the boychicks and girlchick on MTP are speculating on the ‘Oprah factor’. I read somewhere that Oprah introduced McClurkin to Obama. If there is a hair’s breadth between these awful people, I sure do nto see it.
Be nice to see them all fall…. go down the drain, or wherever. Flushed, that too would work.
