"I can't defend her against charges of being completely tasteless"

Then it's a good thing nobody's asking you to, Brad. Right?

Of course, I find baseless charges of racism, rampant misogyny, the disenfranchising of two states, a policy of gleischaltung toward [not-Obama] 527s, and WWTSBQ "tasteless," but what do I know?

I'm a racist.

Plus, like my candidate, I'm all for the murder of my political opponents. There is that.

Double shot? Cinnamon? Paper towel?

Let pack up and leave the skin heads to fight McCain by themselves before they put us into Gitmo. (Remember, I told you ahead of time; don't complain later after staying in Gitmo for 8 years.)

Barack Obama, even if he is the nominee.

I will not vote for John McCain, but I will not vote for Obama.

We can't let it get to us like that. That's the goal, to make us give up and think it's hopeless.

We're all angry, let's turn that into something productive and that might actually benefit our favored candidate rather than collectively go into exile.

I won't give any fucker the pleasure of giving up.

Heck, I had decided that I'd take a political vacation if Hillary's not the nominee.

Now, I might actually campaign against him (but not for McCain, EVER).

And you? Again, do you still stand by your signature?

Leah and I have both come out of our respective spider holes to ask you to knock it off with the "skin heads" riff.

It runs afoul of the "bad for the blog" rule. I've unpublished your recent post that includes that leitmotif, as well. Please cut it out. It undermines your points and upsets the hamsters.

This is not just a bunch of hardcore Obama supporters doing a "gotcha." Look around: MyDd - ardent Hillary supporters - are distancing themselves. The NY Times - which endorsed her - has a scathing editorial. Many, many people were VERY offended, and not just because they want to play political games.

No, I don't think she meant it the way it sounded, but with the history of political violence in this country, and a lot of people worrying that there MAY be assassination attempts on Obama, it was an INCREDIBLY stupid thing to say. And she made it worse by issuing one of those dumb non-apology apologies.

Hillary's comments don't make much sense, for a timeline or anything else. So people are going to read stuff into it, because what she meant is NOT clear. And it's not. Her staying in the race doesn't have a damned thing to do with the Kennedy assassination, and it's really hard to figure out why she used THAT, of all things, for comparison.

And if some people ARE willfully using vague remarks to stoke political anger - well, the same damned thing was done with Obama's "bitter" statement.

The only people distancing themselves are the Obama campaign from this wankfest.

If the OFB had any sense, or shame, they would drop this. But I have confidence they won't.

Kinda like the GOP with Monica Lewinsky. They made Bill more popular by pushing and pushing for impeachment.

A man who was assassinated while campaigning in June for the Democratic nomination. This reply was in direct response to why she should continue in this race. How much clearer can it be? And, according to the brilliant "logic" by the media, she was calling for herself to be assassinated. That's how utterly ridiculous this is. Citing various members of the media or blogs, doesn't prove anything other than showing the amplification of the the original willful distortion.

With regards to the Obama's bittercling comments: those were actually controversial for a reason (his ignorance and condescension). He literally offered the following explanation as to why he wasn't getting rural or working class Democratic voters in PA: during times of economic difficulty these people cling to guns, faith, and xenophobia to "express their frustrations." Obama isn't to blame, the voters are. He immediately responded to the controversy by saying he only said what everyone knows to be true (Actually, as shown in this op-ed, it's false).

The media, true to form, soon began attacking Clinton, saying how foolish it is for her to criticize Obama on charges of elitism when she has a fat bank account and attended elite schools, conveniently forgetting that elitism in an attitude of condescension towards the have-nots not a salary or academic success. That's how it works when one candidate is viciously hated by the media while the other is ferociously protected. It's foolish to pretend they're both subject to this hysteria.

It's easy to distance yourself after it turns what remains for your credibility got mugged by yet another fake smear -- especially when you did eagerly follow Drudge and the NY Post into the back alley.

And it's also easy to distance yourself after your fake smear goes viral and all over the Internet.

It's exactly, but exactly like the last one, where the fake "War Room" video was eagerly disseminated all over the Internet by our tribunes of the people in what used to be the blogosphere, without checking for provenance or getting a script. And then, after the damage is done, everybody says "Oh, sorry," and distances themselves. From another story that came from Drudge.

Drudge -> Blogs -> Olbermann. Looks exactly like the same shit we had to deal with under the criminal Bush regime, except with a few names changed.

And you know why that is? Because it is the same shit.

Go take your concerns, cfortunato, back with you under your bridge. Thanks for your consideration in this matter.

Sorry, but mob hysteria doesn't equal truth.

She described two memorable campaigns that were still contested into June, one of which is forever frozen in our minds.

She's reminding us that candidacies are sometimes still in play in the sixth month. Period.

I'm pretty sure Hillary mentioned Lincoln once, too. I don't know how we missed her incitement to assassinate then.

I now will not just NOT vote for Obama, I will actively campaign against him.
I will school people about his neo-liberalism and lack of honesty. I will remind them of every single unsavory associate he has cultivated. I will inform them of his various positions on any number of issues. I will quote Michelle.

This is coming from a person who took a leave from work to campaign for Kerry and has donated time and money to the dems for decades.

I'm on a mission now.

And she made it worse by issuing one of those dumb non-apology apologies.

Perhaps instead of apologizing, she should have demanded to know why there wasn't a peep out of anybody when she said the same freaking thing to make the same freaking point in March. It's not as if a lot of people weren't already worrying back then about assassination attempts on Obama.

The NY Times editorial means nothing, since they have already written one earlier demanding she depart, being apparently now bored with the race.

We know they've been scrutinizing her tapes, desperately searching for the Dean Scream. The "narrative" (how I'm sick of that word) had become far too positive; it simply had to be stopped by any means necessary. The threat of her winning the popular vote was to be prevented at any cost. They will, quite simply, do anything to win.

However eeeevil one may delude onself that Clinton is, surely stupid she isn't. And what she is now being accused of, in this Salem witchtrial, would be beyond stupid. So stupid you wouldn't say it more than once. Yet RFK Jr. said she's made this identical point before about famous contests that went into June, so it wasn't an unguarded, off-the-cuff, statement. The difference is, she underestimated the fevered pitch of the witchtrial judges and allowed herself to be tired and imperfect in her timing. Now, in this next witchtrial test, she must sink or be burned.

It is so clear that I do not want the world these people want that it would insane for me to vote for the leader they want.

I've noticed on all the Obama blogs (and in comments here) a new meme where Obama's supporters are mentioning Obama's "bitter" gaffe as a way to equivocate their character assassination of Hillary and to rationalize it as some kind of "payback".
This is highly and deliberately deceitful because Obama MEANT what he said in San Francisco, and in fact he said directly that he would not apologize for his "bitter" comments because "everyone knew what he said was true", whereas you have to be completely out of your fucking mind if you think Hillary Clinton would do a television interview and call for the assassination of Bwak Bwak Obama.

And your point would be?

Also, voters, as opposed to wankers, got "it's not the bitter, it's the cling to" immediately.

I'm telling you, this is turning into a justice and legitimacy issue for me now, I'm so outraged.

Well, I'm actually of the opinion that too much _was_ made about the bitter/cling remark.

This imbroglio reminds me more of the Bill Clinton comment on Jesse Jackson in South Carolina -- the thing that triggers all the instant negative associations is something the media types talk about and presume everyone shares. That episode relied on the idea that "Jesse Jackson" has to be shorthand for "identity politics," because that's how the media types see it, so that's how Bill must see it, so he must suffer for invoking an association in their minds.

This time around, it's similar. Apparently there is some undercurrent of worry that the fate of charismatic black leaders is assassination -- I remember Eddie Murphy doing a riff about President Jesse Jackson giving a speech while dodging a hail of bullets. (It hadn't occurred to me vis-a-vis Obama, I have to say.) So, given that that's what "everyone" imagines/worries about happening to Obama, that must be what Hillary Clinton has in mind too, which makes her guilty of indulging in... someone else's fantasy. And for that, she must pay.
