By most accounts, Hillbot was the big loser in last night’s Democratic debate.
And not because she was attacked — she wasn’t. She was challenged. Big difference. A personal attack would be something like this: “Hillary is so ugly, you could push her face in some dough and make gorilla cookies.” Lamentably, Fred Sanford is not running for president.
Still, it was refreshing to see Hillbot’s opponents take the gloves off, treating her as if she were any other candidate. She makes for an easy target, as evidenced by her answer(s) regarding issuing drivers’ licenses to illegal immigrants.
John Edwards immediately went for the jugular. “Unless I missed something,” he said, “Senator Clinton said two different things in the course of about two minutes. America is looking for a president who will say the same thing, who will be consistent, who will be straight with them.”
Barack Obama added: “I was confused (by) Senator Clinton’s answer. I can’t tell whether she was for it or against it. One of the things that we have to do in this country is to be honest about the challenges that we face.”
Hillbot not programmed to handle dissent. Circuit board overloaded. Danger, Will Robinson!
Edwards, in particular, kept pressing the junior robot, er, senator from New York.
“Who is honest? Who is sincere? Who has integrity?” Edwards asked and then provided the answer: Not Hillary.
Obama also questioned Clinton’s truthfulness, though the clear winner was Edwards. As for Hillary, Politico.com’s Roger Simon summed it up best: “she can’t claim that she was stabbed in the back. She was stabbed in the front.”
Hillbot cornered. Commence victimhood:
