Or, when a candidate’s supporter starts acting like the candidate they support: The Andre to whom the above commenter refers is Andre Walker, who keeps the blog Georgia Politics Unfiltered. He responded to my above post with a post on his own blog calling me a sucker for blaming Clinton’s campaign for the Obama picture.

From today’s Maureen Dowd column: After saying she found her “voice” in New Hampshire, she has turned into Sybil. We’ve had Experienced Hillary, Soft Hillary, Hard Hillary, Misty Hillary, Sarcastic Hillary, Joined-at-the-Hip-to-Bill Hillary, Her-Own-Person-Who-Just-Happens-to-Be-Married-to-a-Former-President Hillary, It’s-My-Turn Hillary, Cuddly Hillary, Let’s-Get-Down-in-the-Dirt-and-Fight-Like-Dogs Hillary.

Ellen DeGeneres, another clueless gay Hillbot backer, sets the table (yeah, that was intentional): Degeneres also asked Clinton if she is “being given a harder time” […]Read more "tomorrow’s excuses today"
A survey of 1,200 public high school students yields depressing results: •43% knew the Civil War was fought between 1850 and 1900. •52% could identify the theme of 1984. •51% knew that the controversy surrounding Sen. Joseph McCarthy focused on communism. In all, students earned a C in history and an F in literature, though […]Read more "regrettably, children are the future"
They’re sharing talking points. Limbaugh parrots Hillary, and a Clinton supporter mimics Georgia Republican Jack Kingston. So does that make Hillbot a member of a certain vast conspiracy?Read more "hillary and the right-wing conspiracy"
Now Obama dresses up like Bin Laden, and if you mention it, it’s a scurrilous attack. A preview of things to come — at least McCain is thus far taking the high road.Read more "why is limbaugh regurgitating hillary’s talking points?"
