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.

BILL CLINTON DECLARED BERNIE SANDERS SUPPORTERS THINK ALL PROBLEMS CAN BE SOLVED BY KILLING EVERY THIRD PERSON ON WALL STREET.
THE VIOLENCE ADDICTION OF HIS WIFE IS CLEARLY SPREADING.
MORE TO THE POINT, WHEN BILL WAS PRESIDENT, HE THOUGHT HE COULD CURE ALL THE WORLD'S PROBLEMS BY SLEEPING WITH AS MANY WOMEN WHO WEREN'T HIS WIFE AS HE COULD.
ONE WONDERS WHAT STDS HE MAY HAVE PASSED ON TO HIS WIFE.
FROM THE TCI WIRE:
AP reports, "The US wants to do more in the fight, Carter said, and is 'only limited by our own ingenuity' and ideas. Carter expressed confidence that the White House will approve recommendations, saying nothing he has asked President Barack Obama for yet in the conflicts has been turned down."
Or AP 'reports' since that really wasn't the big news of those remarks.
Let's go to the DoD transcript for US Secretary of Defense Ash Carter's actual remarks:
SEC. CARTER: Across the whole spectrum. You know we're looking to do more, but it ranges from in the air to on the ground. All consistent with our overall strategic approach, which is to enable local forces ultimately to hold and sustain the defeat of ISIL, after ISIL is defeated, but to enable them to do so and accelerate that process so we continue to look for and identify ways of accelerating that, and as we find those we will do them. Obviously in Iraq we do that with the permission of the Iraqi government.
But we -- you should expect us to -- to see us doing more, to be consistent with the same approach, but it will be across all the domains, right up to cyber, which I mentioned earlier.
Now over the next few days I'll have an opportunity to talk to our commanders, and also to some in the region here, and obviously look for more good opportunities to accelerate the defeat of ISIL here in Syria and Iraq, which is absolutely necessary.
Q: When you say "on the ground," do you mean more U.S. troops on the ground in Iraq?
SEC. CARTER: Yes, I mean, I think some of these have that aspect to it, but I just want to emphasize there's a lot more that goes with this, and our -- and our presence on the ground is -- and will continue to be to enable, not to substitute, for local forces.
So the big takeaway there?
When he says "on the ground," he means "US troops on the ground in Iraq."
". . . We're looking to do more, but it ranges from in the air to on the ground" meaning "more US troops on the ground in Iraq."
The Secretary of Defense is openly addressing the desire of the administration to put more US troops on the ground in Iraq.
Meanwhile in Iraq, the Parliament follies continue.
MIDDLE EAST EYE reports:
A group of Iraqi lawmakers said they would not take part in a Saturday parliament session to select a replacement for the speaker, apparently leaving it without the necessary quorum.
Iraq was on course to have two rival claimants to the speakership, further increasing chaos in parliament, which has already seen a vote to sack speaker Salim al-Juburi, a fistfight among MPs and a sit-in this week.
THE NATIONAL adds:
An official session planned for Saturday had earlier been postponed for “security reasons," according to parliamentary spokesman Imad Al Khafaji. The protesting lawmakers gathered at parliament anyway, but later dispersed when it became clear they did not have the numbers to topple the speaker.The protesting lawmakers vowed to hold the vote next week. An earlier attempt on Thursday had also failed for lack of a quorum.
The lawmakers are demanding that Iraq’s top political leadership, including prime minister Haider Al Abadi, step down – accusing them of failing to reform a political system steeped in patronage. Earlier this week, MPs held a multi-day sit-in at the assembly.
US Special Envoy Brett McGurk Tweets:
ALL IRAQ NEWS reports that Speaker Salim al-Jubouri spoke with Shi'ite cleric and movement leader Moqtada al-Sadr today in an attempt to strengthen support for al-Jubouri. AL MADA notes that Moqtada is calling for the Cabinet of Ministers to be replaced with Haider al-Abadi's latest slate (which is being called a slate of "technocrats").
ALSUMARIA adds that Moqtada says the quota system is depleting resources.
Which really means that Moqtada says that the Constitutional system is depleting resources.
REUTERS notes, "Iraq's powerful Shi'ite cleric Moqtada al-Sadr said on Saturday he would re-start protests in 72 hours if the nation's leaders failed to vote on a technocrats' cabinet proposed by Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi to stem corruption." ALSUMARIA reports that Moqtada's followers pitched tents in Baghdad's Tahrir Square.
Meanwhile IRAQ TIMES notes that the Dawa Party has called out "hollow statements and slogans" being mouthed by some politicians. ALL IRAQ NEWS explains that was a response to Moqtada who had decried the failure of someone's third term as prime minister -- referring to Nouri al-Maliki who was forced out in August 2014 by the White House.
Nouri is accused of working behind the scenes to destroy any movement one way or another in his efforts to bring down Haider al-Abadi so that he can return as prime minister.
