OK, Hill said out loud that Obama didn’t appeal to hardworking white people without college education. I guess she’s claiming that as her base. Interesting that Indiana had so many crossover votes by Republicans in the Democratic primary, like Rush Limbaugh suggested to do. I guess her base is Republican as well–but they will vote McCain come November…

(HuffingtonPost) Want a Taste of the McCain Presidency? You’ve Already Had One
It’s hard to outdo our favorite PILF (Pundit I’d like to…) but I think Arianna has it just a little bit wrong here–McCain wants to distance himself from the Bush presidency–but to those people who DON’T think much of the Bush presidency. He wants to seem nice and cozy with it to the Bush faithful–all 25% of them. It’s like his stand on religion–what stand? He doesn’t want creation science taught in schools, yet he cozies up to the craziest of the fundies. To put it as bluntly as possible, McCain is acting the whore. Fortunately, I don’t work for Air America so I can’t get fired for saying that (besides, I didn’t say it about any Democrats). (HuffPost)Air America Host Randi Rhodes Suspended For Calling Hillary A “Big F*cking Whore” Now what’s that about? Randi Rhodes is a female shock jock for the progressive side. She got where she is BECAUSE she made inappropriate remarks. Air America has its knickers in a knot because she made inappropriate remarks? She was doing a standup comedy routine! She wasn’t even on the air. Oh, well … would they have gotten their knickers twisted if she’d said that about Condi? Or John McCain? Come on, Air America, being principled means sticking by your principles even if it hurts.

Oh and thanks to Bluegal for posting my Cheney cartoon to Crooks and Liars. Have a good weekend, Folx!

CNN–Clinton says she ‘misspoke’ about sniper fire
Now, hear me out… if you’re like me, you’re getting pretty tired of all this “misspeaking” that seems to have been going around since the Bush administration took over. But now, with Hillary doing it, it seems to have become a communicable disease, or rather, a non-communicative one. And frankly, that’s making me sick. Just what are we supposed to understand by “I misspoke.” It sounds like, oh, I made a booboo, I said Iran when I meant Iraq. OK, that could be misspeaking, you meant one thing but you said another that was so similar, you had a brain fart. Or you said, Mark McGwire when you meant Barry Bonds–after one, they’re both baseball home-run hitters on steroids–and they look so much alike :) Or you could make a Freudian slip, like the guy who said his wife’s sister’s name in bed and got the ride of his life. But misspeaking is not like the kind of Freudian slip in the old story–oh dear, I had such a Freudian slip this morning…I was at breakfast and I went to ask my wife to pass the orange juice, but instead it came out, “You ruined my life, you f****** bitch!” And it sure as hell doesn’t mean, oh, I meant to tell the truth, but instead, I came out with some wild story to make me look better. The Bush-ites have been doing it consistently for the last 7 years–and getting a pass from the media–and now we have Hillary coming up with some wild story about arriving in Bosnia under sniper fire, when what she meant was, a school girl came up and read a poem to me. Now I’ll grant you, school children reading poems CAN be deadly, especially Bosnian children. But really, Hill, this isn’t a simple misstatement. It’s a Lie. We haven’t hear that term in a long time because George Bush termed it an incivility–and unpatriotic if you used it about anything he said. But that’s what it is, Hillary. Maybe your memory told you there was sniper fire when there was not. “That is sniper fire,” your brain said, as the cadences rolled off the young Bosnian girl’s tongue. But, to paraphrase your husband, that all depends on what the word “is” means. Maybe that’s why your marriage turned out to be so strong? :)
