Argus, endorsing Hillary, proves that the whole RFK "scandal' is a typical Obama crock
[For those who came in late, the baseless, defamatory, and grotesque charges propagated by the NY Post and the Obama campaign, that Hillary wishes for Obama's death, just like RFK's, began with an interview Hillary gave to the Argus editorial board.]
What's wrong with the Argus editorial board? Don't they realize, like anybody who is anybody, that Hillary wants to kill Obama? All the Serious people are saying so! The A list is saying so! Keith Olbermann said so! Why, I heard important Villagers at parties saying so! And yet, shamefully, these people have endorsed her! Have they been affected by Clintonian Mind Control Rays™ beamed from Mount Evil? [Avarosis, fondling orchids: Hmmm.....] Are they, too, insane, to endorse this horrible person? Are they bitter? Do they cling to? Are they consumed by hate for the Unity Pony? [Axelrod makes note to self: Is there any way to suppress SD's votes?] What's wrong with them?
Oh, yeah, the Argus Leader endorsement:
Clinton is the strongest Democratic candidate for South Dakota.
Her mastery of complex policy detail is broad and deep, and her experience as a senator and former first lady matches that.
Her truly universal health care plan would be welcomed by thousands of South Dakotans. Even on reservations, where health care is nominally universal already, such a plan would be welcome. The federal government would never be allowed to subject everyday Americans to the kind of care Native Americans living on reservations routinely receive.
Obama is justifiably credited as a powerful speaker, but Clinton holds her own easily. As those who have attended her South Dakota rallies can attest, she is quick on her feet and energetic. She frames her ideas clearly in speeches and answers questions with genuine directness.
Her resilience and determination never should be questioned. She has met or overcome every challenge or roadblock in her way, and there have been many. Her determination to carry the nomination process through to its real conclusion has perhaps earned her a grudging respect from those who would never support her.
The Argus editorial board was in the same room with Hillary when she made her statement on RFK that the Post smeared her with, the Obama campaign pushed, and (many) Obama supporters, the OFB, and our famously free press greedily and vociferously propagated. They're all saying Hillary wants Obama dead. But the people who were in the same room with her, listening her and seeing her, just endorsed her. There was nothing there. There wasn't even anything to apologize for. The whole fake controversy is a Big Lie.
That makes everybody who propagated the RFK smear officially FITH. Let's make a list. Until the retractions happen, until we hear the open admission that Obama's RFK smear is false:
1. Obama is FITH.
2. Obama's operatives are FITH.
3. Most of our famously free press, and especially Keith Olbermann, are FITH.
4. Much of the A list, our tribunes of the people in the blogosphere, are FITH.
5. The OFB is, of course, FITH.
6. Any otherwise rational Obama supporter who supported this Big Lie is FITH.
NOTE * Please don't tell me about Obama's "gracious retraction" that came 24 hours after his own campaign spread the smear all over the country. That's Obama's pattern: First the smear, then the "I didn't really mean it."
