Sniper fire is now a joke for Clinton.

Clinton pokes fun at Bosnia gaffe, Bill

It was a gaffe that caused the Clinton campaign a serious headache two weeks ago, but in an appearance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno Thursday night, the New York senator was all smiles about it.

As she walked out on stage, Clinton told Leno she almost didn’t make the interview.

“I was pinned down by sniper fire at the Burbank airport,” Clinton said laughing. “

Try to laugh it off, Hillary. Go ahead. I’m not laughing.

“You know this has been such a mismatch of words and actions,” Clinton also told Leno. “I was thinking about it, because obviously I’ve been so privileged to represent our country in, gosh, more than 80 other countries, lots of war zones and all the rest of it — I wrote about this in my book and obviously I just had a lapse.” “

Nice. Hillary’s experience is so vast that it caused her to make shit up. That’s the message. See how full of shit she is? The more I’ve thought about the sniper story, the more I’ve realized what a liar she is. Where did she get the material for that supposed memory? As friends of mine have said, there’s no fuckin’ way that the government would let the first lady fly into a war zone like that. It makes no sense.

No amount of laughing it off or trying to pin it to her little vacations is going to convince me that this was a simple brain fart. It’s not. It’s a goddamned lie that attempted to trick the American people, and it should be called for what it is.

Hillary Clinton and the gender card

Hillary supporters are now playing the gender card.

“Women will indeed be upset if it appears people are trying to push Hillary Clinton out of the way,” said Carol Fowler, the South Carolina Democratic chair who is backing Obama. “If you are going to ask her to withdraw, you’d better be making a strong case.”….

I see. Obama is where he is because he’s black, right Geraldine? And Hillary is being held back because she’s a woman, or she’s going to win because she’s a woman.

Why do Hillary and her supporters keep bringing up the features that neither she nor Obama can control? (Issues of determinism aside….)

Remember what they said in late 2007:…. 0/15/clintons_team_says_women_will_carry_win/

Why can’t we focus on policy? This bullshit about Hillary’s gender needs to be called exactly what it is: a talking point for the single-issue voter–the worst kind of voter available.

I don’t care if she’s a neon-green hermaphrodite. The bottom line is that her arguments suck, as I’ve already made abundantly clear.

The damning of America

By now, hardcore conservatives have probably whipped themselves into a frenzy over Jeremiah Wright’s comments:

“No, no, no, not God bless America — God damn America!”

Minister leaves Obama campaign

Here’s a good chunk of idiotic conservative commentary:

While a number of [liberals], including Barack Obama, will distance themselves from any or all of Rev. Wright’s specific statements, liberals will have a hard time denying that they share one thing in common with him… they resent or even hate what America stands for. They see our nation as an evil power in the world and one in which the haves oppress the have-nots at home.

Who Rev. Jeremiah Wright Really Speaks For

Wright’s kind of language, of course, is absurd, and it should be completely rejected. But it should be kept in mind that the conservatives have had their doomsayers:

I’ll say it again: conservatives, like Cindy McCain, like to say that they LOVE the USA. They prefer to act as if they have a monopoly on pride of country. That is such a crock of shit. They surely don’t love the whole country. They can’t; in fact, these rabid conservatives (not all conservatives are) hate almost half the country that consists of liberals. So don’t give me this shit that Wright hates the country and that he speaks for liberals. Falwell showed the hate he had for what he perceived as the current state of the nation.

So many of us love to use God as the source of ultimate vengeance. It’s a incontrovertible fact. This is old ground, however, and I won’t re-cover it too much. But the source of this kind of need for revenge (which even ol’ Spanky feels sometimes) is based, in large part, on what we learned from the temper tantrums of the God from the Old Testament.

Yeah, Wright fucked up. But don’t make me trot out the list of all the criminal fucks that the religious right used to champion.

Clinton’s little girl disses her in favor of Obama

Ah, the irony.

Clinton’s 3am girl says the answer is Obama

So who do you want answering the phone at 3am? For Casey Knowles, it’s got to be Barack Obama.

Casey is the little girl shown asleep in the controversial Hillary Clinton advert that aired in Texas before last week’s primary, playing on fears about Mr Obama’s relative lack of experience in foreign policy matters.

It turns out that ol’ Hillary used stock footage for the commercial, and that the actress has grown up to be an Obama supporter. Now, this isn’t a reason to vote for Obama, but it doesn’t seem like one of life’s little cruel twists that should make Hillary cuss in the bathroom a bit…

Clintons push a Hillary/Obama ticket? Bullshit.

Clintons push a Hillary/Obama ticket

Hillary and Bill Clinton are again teaming up on Barack Obama — this time saying the first-term U.S. lawmaker, whom they have derided as inexperienced, would be a strong running mate on a Democratic presidential ticket headed by the former first lady.

But since Clinton, a two-term senator from New York, won primary elections in Ohio and Texas, she and her husband, former President Bill Clinton, have touted Obama as a possible running mate.

Doesn’t matter. All this is the Clintons’ pandering, pandering, pandering.

This is bullshit. She’s so desperate.

Hillary, you can’t dis the experience and then say, “Ok, bro, you can be my VP.”

If you’re not experienced enough to be Prez, you ain’t experienced enough to to be VP.
Bro Taguchi has already covered this kind of nonsense.

A nugget for Hillary

Dear Hillary,

You must stop the “I have more experience than Barack” bullshit.

Now, I think we need somebody whose got some experience cleaning house to go into the White House,’ [Clinton] said to cheers. ‘So, I might ask you to grab your brooms and your mops, your vacuum cleaners and come on up and help me out,’ Clinton said to an audience that included men but was majority female. (From Clinton aims to clean house)

Look, if this argument from experience actually worked, you wouldn’t be behind as you are now–but here you are, on March 1st, after so much campaigning, saying the same old thing over and over again.

Fire your campaign manager. Better yet–fire yourself.
