Right Wing Nutskies Crawl Out of Clinton-Era Cave

Now that we’re planning to have a Democratic Party president again, the right-wing nutskies who decided back in the 1990s that Hillary Clinton was a coke-dealing murderer have emerged from their eight-year-long hibernation to come up with some new conspiracy theories. My current favorite is that Barack Obama is the “most successful communist mole ever.” [...]

Bailout Hillary Clinton?

Why doesn’t the Democratic Party can hold another kind of fundraiser – one to raise money to help Americans whose jobs have disappeared and are looking for work? [...]

On I-71 in Ohio: From Clinton to Obama

You can’t really see the detail in this photo I snapped from the passenger’s side of my vehicle traveling down Interstate 71 in Ohio, so you’ll have to trust me when I tell you that on the lower left hand side, the van’s owner placed an Obama 08 bumper sticker over a Hillary Clinton 2008 [...]

Very First DNC Speaker Claims God Working for the Democrats

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 [...]

Hillary Clinton Says You Must Teach Your Children That Anything Is Possible As Long as You’re Not a Hillbilly

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 [...]

Clinton Says There is No Ceiling Except For the Godless

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? [...]

In Wake of Obama-Biden Announcement, Clinton 2012 Shirts Sell Like Hotcakes

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…

Yep. Look for other signs of discontent among people who are, to put it mildly, bummed that Hillary Clinton will not be on the top or the bottom of the presidential [...]

FISA: Hillary Clinton got it Right, Barack Obama got it Wrong (Text of Clinton Statement of July 9, 2008)

In the preliminaries to the passage of the FISA Amendments Act (H.R. 6304), Barack Obama made better promises than Hillary Clinton. Barack Obama made better-sounding commitments to the Constitution of the United States and to the rule of law.

In the actual vote on the passage of the FISA Amendments Act, Hillary Clinton got it [...]

Former Clinton Followers for McCain MiniMovement Shows Further Irrationality on FISA

The more that the movement of former Clinton followers calling itself Women for Fair Politics speaks, the less convinced I am of the movement’s intellectual coherence. The movement of dubious size is no longer focused on following Hillary Clinton, considering that today Hillary Clinton appeared in full-fledged rally mode for Barack Obama. If not a [...]

Ignore Ad Hominem: Cynthia Ruccia’s Arguments For Switching from Clinton to McCain Tell All

A lot of people are very upset at Cynthia Ruccia, the long-time Democrat who has put together an organization conflictingly called “Clinton Supporters Count Too” and Women for Fair Politics. Whatever the organization is called, it and she have explicitly called for Hillary Clinton supporters to vote for John McCain in the 2008 general election. [...]

Cynthia Ruccia Keeps Clinton-to-McCain Movement Going To Uncertain Effect

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 [...]
