Shock, and indeed horror. It seems that the Democratic primary system is once again throwing out a winner who can’t win the general election. The election is close between these two, it’s not like Obama is the runaway winner, and yet Tomasky is still whining that we didn’t just pack up and go home after Iowa, basically. I could like Obama, and any Democrat winning is the ideal outcome. But in a year like this it should be impossible for the Republicans. I honestly don’t think you can blame the protracted primary battle, if anything it’s increased Obama’s strength as a candidate. All the same issues would have arisen, but at least Hillary pulled her punches on a lot of it, something the Republcians would feel no obligation to do.
While I’m here, referring to her campaign as ‘the Clintons’ is sexist. I’m like, the definition of a non-feminist and I can call it as misogyny, so what does that tell you? Oh, and Obama basically walks out of his church of twenty years, throwing every one connected with it under the proverbial bus. So why is that just reported as fact and nobody is calling him on it? Shouldn’t there be discussion over why he didn’t consider this at the start of the campaign? Or why he’s changed position on this issue pretty much every time it’s been raised? What is the influence of the church on his thinking and his policies, does it matter to him or not? Not vital, but certainly important. It’s just sort of sliding through as a non-event, but I’d like to see what would have happened if Hillary had the same problem with, I dunno, a rabid band of man-hating Methodists.
Ach, never mind. At least she won Puerto Rico. Vamos a hangear!!
