Ding Dong The Witch Is Gone!

by D. E. Carson (writer), , June 04, 2008

Clinton to announce suspension of campaign on Saturday.

Not since the Kansas Jayhawks won the NCAA championship in 1988 have I had the wherewithal to actually stand up and do the cabbage patch. In 1988, every time the Oklahoma Sooners won a basketball game, the players would stand up on the sidelines of the court and start doing the cabbage patch. It would radiate up through the seats of the arena and spill out onto the campus. When the Jayhawks won the championship 83-79 at Allen Field House East (Kansas City calls it Kemper Arena) there wasn’t a fan on the campus of KU who wasn’t doing the cabbage patch as an “in your face” act of defiance.

Now 20 years later I’m dancing the cabbage patch all over again at the announcement that Hillary is “suspending” her campaign. Now we all know that she’s suspending the campaign because that means that she is able to continue raising money, after all she has over $11 million that she has to pay back to herself and other debtors so if she were to stop the campaign all together, but the reality is: one down, one to go. Originally she said she wasn’t walking away claiming that she couldn’t stop her campaign machine “on a dime.” But this is the same person who thinks that by 6:00 p.m. EST on January 20, 2009, all of our troops can be on their way home from Iraq.

So in deciding that she wants to back off, she thinks that she deserves to be Obama’s running mate. “I want the 18 million people who voted for me to be respected and heard,” she told supporters who attended a rally last night after the serious whoopin’ she got in Montana. This is the other reason she just suspended her campaign and didn’t just flat walk away. She is still angry that she didn’t get the nomination by a landslide and she thinks she has her supporters behind her. Frankly, if Obama actually were to select Hillary as his running mate he would be committing political suicide. He would alienate those who support him now and the only votes he would get would be the 18 million that Hillary brought along – and that’s a great big maybe.

Hillary needs to cut her losses and accept that she is out. She only had a chance before Obama came on the scene. The press was so sure that Hillary was in that no one bothered to look into Obama’s past and when he smooth-talked his way onto the scene it was a shock to everyone. Even I’m surprised that he has gotten as far as he has. I, too, believed that Hillary was a shoe-in. The fact is that Obama is slicker than warm snot on a greasy doorknob. Hillary will find some “October Surprise” and she will sabotage Obama and make it look like an accident. This means that if McCain wins in November, she can be the front runner in 2012. It’s a sad commentary on how pathetic she really is in her belief that she is entitled to the presidency. Don’t kid yourself, Hillary is shrewd. She would throw Chelsea under the bus if it meant she’d get back in the White House. She wouldn’t think twice of throwing Bill under the bus.

But for now, she’s out. She won’t become president in 2008 unless something really bad happens to Obama on the way to the convention, but even then, I think the Democrats are so out of touch that they’d elect a dog before they’d elect Hillary.

We don't agree often but Hillary needs to step down and away and let Obama get going. And I heard today it was $20 million that she needs to raise. I voted for her and, of course, I am disapointed but she was beaten fairly and it's time to move on.

Yes, she’s out.  But at least with her, we knew what to expect or what we would get.  Obama is getting shadier by the minute.  He’s either going to really be the claimed savior for change...or the big Trojan horse.

Like I said, Obama is slick.  He's the 21st Century equivalent of a snake oil salesman.  He's got more grease on him than a '53 Buick and he's not nearly as attractive...

So I get this review comment:

"Obviously you were not going for fairness or intellectual honesty, and favored an appeal to emotion. You have a strong voice, but your mania takes away from the power of your text."

And I'm thinking, "WTF?"  Then I came to realize that this had to have been written by a liberal Hillary supporter.  Even after rereading the article myself, I can find no deviation from fairness or intellectual honesty in this article.  My idea of fair means "I calls it like I sees it." -- an attribute glaringly absent from today's press coverage of this whole election.  Sometimes calling things as I see them means I'm going to say some things that people aren't going to like.  Frankly, I don't care.  I'm not interested in being popular.  I'm interested in being fair.  I can't help it if the truth hurts.  That's not my problem.  If the truth hurts then that must mean that somewhere along the line the reader's idea of the truth must have gotten contaminated by some ultra-left-wing-liberal, pot smoking, Birkenstock wearing, tree-hugging, America-hating, Bush-loathing, propaganda-pushing website.

Just getting tired of being right all the time.
