I think this guy got hit by a falling smokestack.

Ha Ha, DIAF Hillary and all your cronies.

If their "chief strategist" is the one responsible for how they've been conducting their campaign, this can only be a good thing. Yes?

/this is going to be a very very long 7 months...

Whenever I read that I get a little excited.

\Is that wrong?

Is this really going to hurt, or help, her campaign?

Obama isn't a socialist. Christ, you Americans need to travel and see what real socialism looks like.

I'm suprised he made it out alive as much as even Clinton staffers despised the bastard. It was pretty obvious he was going to leave eventually though, he's greedy, not stupid.

/Unlike some candidates that I will refrain from naming

Columbiowned?

So now Wolfson is now going to co-captain this baby into the iceberg, huh? Should be interesting to watch.
 
2008-04-06 07:25:55 PM  
Yeah I am sure he asked.

wut?

That aside, who wants to start collecting bets on when Hillary will follow suit?
 
2008-04-06 07:28:54 PM  
After it was discovered that Penn had been hired by the Colombian government to help secure a trade deal, one that Sen. Clinton has said she opposes, he realized he needed to step down, sources told ABC News.

Penn's resignation came under pressure from an angry Sen. Clinton, who believed that Penn had recused himself from any clients who might pose a conflict for her campaign.



I'm sure he just mis-spoke....

Don't worry, he's a Limbite. There are only a couple of hundred thousand of them, but they're loud, gullible, and have trouble counting.

This is Mark Penn.

Everybody hates him.

I read that as Clitanic, read the article, and felt quite weird.

As long as you're thinking about Chelsea, then you don't have a problem. Because I would Clinton those boobies like the fist of an angry God.

Mark's brother Sean is a pretty decent actor...
 
2008-04-06 07:33:21 PM  
Oh snappu.

Will this hasten her exit from the stage? Because if so then I'd like to say 'Thank you' to Mr. Penn, because really it was getting kind of sad.
 
2008-04-06 07:33:52 PM  
Wow. It's pretty sad that I glanced at this headline and thought "what is an article about Richard Stallman doing in the Politics section with a news flash tag???". Also, I hope Mark Penn's lifeboat gets a hole bit into it by an angry shark.

unfortunately HRC is going to take down the dem party before she even considers bowing out.
 
2008-04-06 07:34:00 PM  
I was aloof when it came to Hillary at the start of this campaign...which quickly turned into farking revulsion.

My friends and I were talking about the celebration that will ensue following her concession speech. It will be like farking V-Day for Democrats.

As if looking at her didn't give me nightmares already...

Keep the laughter down, President McCain needs his nap time.

LessO2: Is this really going to hurt, or help, her campaign?

Unfortunately it'll probably help the campaign, the new chief strategist can't possibly be as incompetant as Mark Penn.

Agreed. God willing, it's already too late for her.
 
2008-04-06 07:36:05 PM  
Amusing she had to chuck him overboard, but personally I am hoping for a tell-all interview from him. Some sour grapes would be good for a laugh.
 
2008-04-06 07:36:13 PM  
She can't wait to get into office before starting the scandals.

by "you" Americans you mean one silly Fark commenter? Christ, you Canadians have an over-inflated sense of globalization.

He got reamed...lost his big Columbia contract, then got the boot from the hilldog team...watch leaks about hilldog come out left and right....he is gonna have his own fun taking down what ever is left of this shambles of a candidate.....watch!!!!

Subbie, nice headline.

Didn't we say the same thing with Bush when it came to Attorney Generals?

Bring on the crocodile tears.

What a bunch of corporate cronies.

Once again, their crony-ism is revealed, just like it was back in the day of Whitewater.

Pretty sad when the common folk can't see beyond the Clintons's cronyism, which is just as lovely as Bush, Inc.

Obama's our only hope out of this mess. VOTE OBAMA.

It does make her failing campaign look that much worse though, if her own chief strategist is jumping ship. It'll look very bad for her in tomorrow's headlines.

The picture they show of him on TV is soooo gay.
