You know, the speeches given at the 2008 Democratic National Convention are not casual affairs. They’re not idiosyncratic expressions of individual notions. They’re read, re-read and carefully vetted by committees of Democratic Party bureaucrats to ensure that the ideas expressed in them are consistent with the message and tone the DNC wants to convey. So [...]
Pardon me, but did that headline upset you?
All right, no, she didn’t say that. But imagine if she did. Imagine if in her August 2008 DNC speech Hillary Clinton said the following:
That is our duty, to build that bright future, and to teach our children that in America there is no chasm too [...]
So, there is no chasm, no barrier, no ceiling that can stop those who seek rise through the ranks of government – except if you don’t have faith in God? People who don’t worship Hillary Clinton’s God will be kept out of public office? [...]
Since the campaign of Barack Obama announced this morning that Joseph Biden would run as Obama’s running mate, our most popular-selling shirt is…

In today’s New York Times, Frank Rich writes with great skepticism about the notion that there is really and truly a movement of Clinton supporters eager to support John McCain:
Our new bogus narrative rose from the ashes of Mrs. Clinton’s concession to Mr. Obama, amid the raucous debate over what role misogyny played in [...]
Three of we who write for Irregular Times met last week near Trumansburg, New York and recorded this podcast under the stars. I feel confident in stating that this is the first podcast in the history of the Universe to incorporate discussion of Seneca Falls, Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, South Carolina, populism, American aristocracy, the [...]
Is Hillary Clinton the kind of candidate who attracts people that would rather support the terrible right-wing policies of John McCain than the progressive policies of Barack Obama, or have these supposed hard-core Hillary Clinton activists really just plants from the Republican Party? [...]
