Reiterating a point she has made frequently while campaigning in West Virginia, Clinton pointed out Tuesday that no Democrat has won the White House since 1916 without winning West Virginia.
Bill Clinton won there in 1992 and 1996. George W. Bush took the state in 2000 and 2004.
In addition to West Virginia, Clinton’s campaign points to other swing states she has won — like Ohio and Pennsylvania — as they try to woo superdelegates to their side.
Yes, yes. But she has missed the point. I understand that a Democrat must win swing states. No brainer. But it doesn’t matter that she won against a fellow Democrat. You have to win against the Republican, dumbass. Apples and oranges. General Tso’s and pizza.
And I don’t buy these polls that say that these swing-stater-Hillary-supporters will vote for McCain over Obama. It’s bullshit spoiled-grapes nonsense. They will think about the war and the goddamned economy, and they will be voting BLUE. Bottom line.
(Although, if she wins, maybe I’ll bail out on her. “MC Spanky McGee, you’re an asshole.” Yes, I am.)
It’s the same kind of political sophistry she’s been pulling all along, like claiming that she has “won” Florida and Michigan.
Yeah, and I used to be a badass in YMCA soccer. Whoopdiefuckingdoo.
