Hillary Campaigning...For McBush

McCain, as the presumptive Repug nominee, has a few solid months here to sharpen his claws and prepare his voodoo dolls and dark, smoking fires (in accordance to Republican tradition) for the general election. So we should not be surprised to see venom and bile, in true R style, thrown at both Democrat candidates.

Strong responses, and perhaps some attacks of their own, are to be expected from the Good Guys. After all, being able to weather and respond to the Conservative poo-flinging is an absolute necessity for a Dem nominee. Obama, riding his vast wave of voter turnout, fund raising, delegate count, primary wins...ok, his big ol' wave of "Kick Ass-ity," has been the obvious recipient of a great deal of this misplaced self-loathing from the rightwing nut houses and retirement homes.

But a strange story hit the wire today. Apparently Clinton has begun to hit with the weighted gloves as well. She aggressively asserted that she and her competitor possessed the qualities necessary to become our nations next president, yet one person running may not posses those aspects. Of course, she's talking about John McCain, right? I mean, there’s no way Hillary Clinton, a Democrat, would ever be talking up McBush, the "Fewer Jobs, More Wars" Republican, and deriding Obama, a fellow Democrat, right?

Wrong. Hillary:

“I think that since we now know Sen. (John) McCain will be the nominee for the Republican Party, national security will be front and center in this election. We all know that. And I think it’s imperative that each of us be able to demonstrate we can cross the commander-in-chief threshold,” the New York senator told reporters crowded into an infant’s bedroom-sized hotel conference room in Washington.

“I believe that I’ve done that. Certainly, Sen. McCain has done that and you’ll have to ask Sen. Obama with respect to his candidacy,” she said.

So...McCain, or the Second Coming of Bush, is more qualified to be president than that Obama guy, according to Hillary. With all the negative press (and negative reality) McBush is faced with, I'm sure he appriciates the strong support and near-endorsement Clinton offers.

She said she and McCain had traveled to Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan together as she repeated a line that surfaced from the campaign trail. She and McCain “bring a lifetime of experience to the campaign, Clinton said, while “Sen. Obama will bring a speech he gave in 2002,” stating his opposition to the Iraq war as an Illinois state senator."

Thanks Hil. Good to know which team your playing for. I'm not sure, but I think that little "D" before your name stands for Democrat...maybe...

Honestly, who the hell does she think she is? The obvious folly of praising the other party's nominee aside, what the hell does that mean? "the commander-in-chief threshold"? So because she walked through some metaphorical doorway on her husband's coat tails when he happened to be the CoC, she should be the next president? Come on. What actual experience are we talking about here Hillary? Your 2 terms as a senator from NY? Travel Experiance? Hey, I've traveled to a bunch of states in the US and even a few countries out there, how about hookin' me up with that UN Ambassador position? And I think that Obama guy has been in the senate too, and I think he's done some traveling, but obviously, its different for Clinton...some how...

So, why did McCain cross the "commander-in-chief" threshold?

Give up?

'Cause his head was lodged up Bush's ass!!!!! HAHAHAHAHA
