There Will Be Mud or No Country For Old Woman

by

The Clinton v. Obama brawl is fixing to get good.

Or at least that was my opening sentence before the whole Barack Hussein Obama Lama Ding Dong nonsense reared its retarded head.  I agree, as damn near always, with Abramson.

Go after his positions, not the name he was stuck with. There’s plenty there. If you can’t knock him off on substance, you don’t deserve to win.

To the eternal delight of those of us who like to watch political contests turn ugly for entertainment value,  there will be plenty of fun still to come.  Dirty, gutter politics kind of fun.

Back to the race for the Democratic nomination.  The ugly truth is that Barack Obama has momentum.  That momentum will cost Hillary Clinton the nomination that was hers to lose.  Bank on it.  The upcoming contests in Texas and Ohio will put the final nail in her coffin.  Don’t get me wrong, she could still win one or even both of those primaries.  But, not by enough.   “Proportional delegates” will be the phrase she mutters over and over as she spends the remaining years plotting revenge and collecting cats in her Chappaqua home.

Don’t expect her to lose with dignity and go quietly.  It is going to get brutal.  The Dems eat their young.  She will roll into the convention with enough delegates to make some substantial demands.  Several books will be written detailing the back room machinations that went on in various Denver hotel suites during the last week of August 2008.

The sad truth is, she is yesterday’s news.  Obama is the NEW THING.  He is the Democrat’s Buzz Lightyear to Clinton’s Woody.  [Insert “Clinton’s Woody” joke here.]  Obama is exciting and fresh.  He gets people fired up and interested.

How is a thick-ankled harridan with a voice like a billygoat being stuffed into a wood chipper and whose greatest political achievement was marrying a natural born politician going to compete with that?It doesn’t matter that he doesn’t have the “experience” or a “plan” or any of that.  He offers the voters something new and different and exciting and vaguely ethnic.  And frankly, her constant drone about her 35 years of experience falls a little flat.  Doing what exactly?  And this nonsense about being ready for the job on “Day One” is a load of crap.   There is more to being Leader of the Free World than knowing where the kitchen is.

    […] Sarcastro believes Hillary Clinton is done no matter what happens in Texas and Ohio on Tuesday. But it won’t be pretty. Back to the race for the Democratic nomination. The ugly truth is that Barack Obama has momentum. That momentum will cost Hillary Clinton the nomination that was hers to lose. Bank on it. The upcoming contests in Texas and Ohio will put the final nail in her coffin. Don’t get me wrong, she could still win one or even both of those primaries.

    Well, actually, there isn’t “plenty there” there. This may actually work to his advantage. I think the whole experience thing is beyond silly. You are the head of a large entity, whatever it is. A crisis presents itself. You gather your trusted advisors, and you make a call. There is no “right’ answer.

    I will always maintain that you don’t really revel in people’s despair, but the illusion that you do helps you bring the funny.

    It works. You make me laugh.

    Mack —

    Well, that’s a fair criticism. I should probably have added “if you look hard enough.” The rap on Obama seems to be that he’s all rhetorical flourish, but it’s not like he doesn’t have any positions on anything at all. This is just another example of how he is underestimated (and I’m just as guilty of that as anyone).

    Anyway, I think you can only make real progress against him on substance because he’s a very likable guy on a personal level and I think the personal stuff just backfires for that reason, just like the personal shots people used to take at Reagan backfired.

    This kind of thing would work better with someone like a Jesse Jackson or Al Sharpton (or even Hillary Clinton) becauuse they are not (generally speaking) personally likable (the regular people who do like them uually like them for other reasons). But not with Barack Bin Laden Cornwallis King George III Santa Anna Hitler Yamamoto Obama.
