Where are the women?
CRANKY CLINTON AND HER FOUL MOUTHED RANDY BOYS ARE TOSSING AROUND SOME POTTY LANGUAGE INCLUDING THE F-WORD.
REACHED FOR COMMENT, CRANKY INSISTED, "MY BOYS ARE GROWING BOYS. I LIKE BIG BOYS. I LIKE FOUL MOUTHED BIG BOYS. I LIKE 'EM YOUNG. IT'S FUNNY HOW NO ONE'S NOTED HOW LITTLE ROOM FOR WOMEN THERE REALLY IS MY CAMPAIGN -- IN MY 'I'M ALL ABOUT THE WOMEN' CAMPAIGN. I LIKE THE DIRTY MOUTHED, YOUNG, BIG BOYS. BRING IT ON!!!!"
FROM THE TCI WIRE:
The War Hawk has landed?
Hillary Clinton has won the state of New York's Democratic Party primary. That's not a shock, forget the allegations of vote suppression (though I'm sure they're true), the closed primary status means that only Democrats could vote. That can be good. It can also be bad in that it doesn't reflect what will happen in a general election.
But one thing we know?
Debra Messing is not just an outright idiot, she's a nightmare.
In 2008, I supported Hillary. It was around the New Hampshire primary.
I know Hillary -- or knew her.
I was looking at her record and Barack's.
She said her support for the Iraq War was a mistake.
Was she telling the truth?
Elaine and I were face to face with him in Chicago when he was seeking the Senate, at a big money fundraiser, and didn't ask about Iraq, Elaine praised him for speaking out against the Iraq War -- which friends had told us of.
And his response was that America was in Iraq now so it didn't matter.
That's when Elaine and I exchanged a look and immediately left the fundraiser without either of us writing a check.
Their Senate records were more or less the same.
Hillary was (finally) saying that the support of the Iraq War (or at least her vote for it) was a mistake while Barack had said to my face that opposition to the Iraq War was no longer important.
We'll come back to Iraq but between the two of them, I was willing to bet that Hillary was the better choice because of that face to face encounter with Barack and because she was being savaged which argued that, if she were the President, 'leaders' of the peace movement would publicly rally and make demands.
They wouldn't do that with Barack.
We saw it with our own eyes.
They lied and insisted they couldn't object or pressure now because it was a primary but that during the general, they'd be all up in his face.
Then the general election was too important to make demands (????) so they'd do so after he won.
In his two terms, has Tom Hayden ever led a protest against Barack?
Not "no," but "hell no."
They were frauds.
And we regularly cautioned here about what would happen as they ripped Hillary apart with one sexist attack after another: They risked creating a division so hard that in a general election they might not win over her supporters.
And that did happen.
It was a given that whomever the Democratic Party candidate was, they'd win in 2008 due to outrage over the illegal war and 8 years of Bully Boy Bush.
Even with that, John McCain (and his running mate Sarah Palin) ended up with 45.7% of the vote.
Barack was a fresh face.
You can sell hope on that, you can sell novelty with that.
Hillary's been around forever.
That doesn't create excitement.
And that's before we factor in gender in the United States.
Barack was also able to peel off Republicans from their own party and to attract independents.
Hillary's unfavorables are immense and decades old.
So if Hillary's the nominee come November, she's going to need every vote available and she's going to need supporters who can carry her over the finish line because she can't do that.
She can say she's not a natural politician but she is one, she's not a likeable one.
This is not a new development. It was true and commented on in the 2008 race (and Hillary even responded to it in the debates).
So the Debra Messings of the world need to learn grace.
I know that's hard for a woman who's damaged her face with bad plastic surgery -- clue, boys and girls, when women over forty go ridiculous painting on eye brows, they're usually hoping it will hide a bad face lift.
But they need to learn it.
