Obama to Bill Clinton: You've got the Unity Pony. Give it to me.
Readers, I am not kidding. Get a load of this trial balloon from the UK. Times Online. [I've deleted the lying liar material on Hillary's remarks before the Argus editorial board]. And keep reading, because you'll love the sweetener:
Barack Obama wants Bill to heal Hillary Clinton wounds
Barack Obama, the probable Democratic presidential nominee, wants Bill Clinton to help him heal the deep party rifts created by his wife Hillary’s divisive campaign...
“If anybody can put their arms around the party and say we need to be together, it is Bill Clinton,” a senior Obama aide said.
And Bill gets?
But look, I thought that Obama was the one with the Unity Pony? But now it's Bill Clinton? Then why'd you smear him as a racist? WTF? Is Obama's Unity Pony on back order too? Then how'd Bill Clinton get one?
"He’s brilliant, he has got heart and he cares deeply about the country. It’s tricky because of his position as Hillary’s spouse, but his involvement is very important to us."
And Bill gets?
“Bill Clinton will give permission to Hillary supporters to come into our camp and become one party.
Er, no. We're not a cult. Or a movement. We don't "need permission." You asshole.
He is critical to this effort.”
And Bill gets? You're going to love this:
Obama has an important bargaining chip which could tempt Bill Clinton into the fold. Friends say the former president is distressed by the rift in his relationship with the African-American community after he was affectionately described in the 1990s as the “first black president”.
William Galston, a former White House official and Hillary Clinton supporter, said: “One part of him [Bill Clinton] deeply regrets the schism that has opened up with the black community and he would welcome the opportunity to redeem himself.” Campaigning for Obama would go a long way to restoring good relations.
Lovely. So Obama smears Bill Clinton as a racist in the black community, and then graciously offers the opportunity for Bill Clinton "to redeem himself" -- as if he needed redemption -- by campaigning in the very same community where Obama smeared him.
Truly a mindfuck of cosmic proportions.
And what's even more stunning than the arrogance these guys have is the ineptitude of the pitch.
And now I must go paint. It's just that I can't take my eyes off the trainwreck that the Obama campaign is becoming. It seems like every hour, some piece of heavy metal machinery goes flying off and injures somebody....
NOTE Of course, it's obvious to all but the OFB that the way to heal the rift between the black community and the Clintons -- if indeed it exists, since blacks want Hillary on Obama's ticket more than any other population group -- would be to have Obama campaign for Hillary. It would be a good learning experience for him... Before he returns to the Senate. Or to private life as the head of his "movement."
UPDATE The Unity Pony hits the big time LOL!!!!!!
