wow. I'm surprised that the talent that wrote the article didn't begin with the phrase "It was a dark and stormy night..."

Hillary is still running? Why? Get her a hula hoop or something shiny to play with.

Now I wouldn't say she's stupid. Evil, Machiavellian, condescending and a two faced liar for sure, but not stupid.

If only there were something large Hillary could stick in Bill's mouth to keep him occupied.. Wait.. ew.. Let me start over.

Ok there's two men running for President and one of them's Hillary. The other one turns to him and says.. wait no that wasn't it either.. I can get this one, hold on.

Penis.

a certain inevitability

You keep saying this word...

You wait until the junior Senator from Illinois gets the nomination, because you're going to see negative campaigning that will make what they did to Michael Dukakis look like pranks played during recess at a Catholic girl's school.

If Barack survives the worst shiat the ClintCo camp can toss at him then the GOPhers will seem like half drowned kittens in direct comparison.

Hold on... did someone just say Catholic school girls?

Actually, if the GOP tries to Swiftboat Obama it will backfire. It will only energize all the young people and independents. It worked in the past, it won't work again.

My oh my oh my.

HillBill can slink away to a corner, we have everything under control now. She/He/He/She may very well now win the next couple of states but She/He needs a massive wipeout in all three to even come close.

Oh and by the way, let's replace all the Senate Dems that caved for the Telecom immunity bill.

If it's not illegal, why oh why do they need immunity?

I would imagine that makeup sex as practiced by the Clintons would be a high art form.

On the actual topic: has Bill said anything particularly hurtful to the campaign lately? Like, "maybe if you bothered to organize you wouldn't lose ten states in a row" or something like that?

Both of the Democrat front runners are asshats. Nobody trusts Billary and her husband is baggage. Barak Hussein Obama so far has said lots of nothing and meaningless rhetoric in most of his speeches. Neither of them will get the U.S. out of Iraq like they claim and Obama will launch war against Pakistan. Juan McCain is a Democrat too. They're jokes.

Ah, no, I fail. I wasn't aware we could give out negative scores so I thought it was a typo. Yours is right.

Can't believe I am the first to actually say it directly: on "figuring out how to get the candidate's husband to shut the hell up":

1-Find bill an attractive, young, discreet personal assistant.
2-Have bill help in campaign planning.
3-Keep bill off the podium.
4-Give them a private office.

I am a fan of bill clinton, particulary before he stapled himself to hillary. Just gotta find a person's achilies heel.

Clarification: Actually, I did see his point and remarked with irony. I expanded on my convictions about the candidates and made a point in my initial post. Meanwhile, you and your buttsecks trolling pal decide to jump in with nothing but mindless drivel -- without a point.

Her new phrase is "solution provider". She will do or say anything to get into office. And once she's there she will do and say anything to gain and maintain power. Sound familiar?

She'll be a democratic version of Bush.

If I had any feelings, that might hurt. I thought you'd be happy to see Hillary treading water. Obama can't do 90% of what he is saying he will, but at least he gives speeches that inspire and has the ability to lead. Qualities neither Clinton nor McCain have.

Unwarranted bullying? Don't start it if you can't take it.

Mean-spirited, but sloppy; is NewportBarGuy the only one you want to insult via your knowledge of their profile?


Back to TFA and the topic at hand, all of these shake ups with the Clinton campaign and the degree of media coverage seems almost too convenient. Imagine the media boost if she manages to pull something off in OH and TX. Stuff like "Incredible Comeback" or some other sycophantic crap...

Riiight... A politician on Fark commiting unprovoked cyber-bully attacks. Picture that. That can't be too good for your supposed political career/reputation.

If anything, you're Fark's town liar.

I can't wait to see what Hillary's camp tries to do in Ohio and Texas. If she goes too negative she hands Barack an edge in the debate. If she doesn't, she loses. She's stuck between Barack and a hard place. No wonder people are jumping ship. They need jobs after the campaign is over.

The surest sign of how a campaign is doing is to look at career political operatives who need a paycheck. Seems like Obama is having a net influx and Hillary is faced with the opposite.

They can scream Texas and Ohio all they want. Unless they win them on a 2:1 margin like Barack has been doing, they are toast.

I'm hoping that's true, but only time is going to tell. I just think she wants it so bad that she won't give up until the end of the convention. At least Romney had some class...

You've got to think Dean & Co. are realizing what a good thing they have in Obama and they don't want to fark it up. All these machinations about Hillary doling out power for super delegate votes is ludicrous because she has to actually win to pay off on those IOUs. The only one who can sap independent voters and moderates AND retain the Democratic base is Obama. Anyone who wants a post or position better hop on board quick. The train is leaving the station.

WorldDan: Actually, if the GOP tries to Swiftboat Obama it will backfire. It will only energize all the young people and independents. It worked in the past, it won't work again

Agreed. Also the fact that the Dems turnout in the primary season alone is doubling that of the GOPhers bodes well fer Obama's chances. Combine that with the fact that the Christo-fascist element of GOPher base is totally unenthused by McCain and it smells like big WIN fer Obama. The only thing that could possibly fark it up is if the stupor delegates play petty politics and give the nod to Hillary.

Steaming Cup of SARS: I'm wondering if Hillary will file for divorce if she doesn't win the nomination.

Thinks it's a tie whether Laura will rid herself of her beard marriage to Bi-Curious George before Hill ditches Bill. Wonder wot the Vegas oddsmakers are saying about that one.
