Wow. Happy Women's History Month! Hillary Rodham Clinton scored big last night for those of us who actually care about little things like women's place in this 'democracy.' And so much for Maureen Dowd's theory that Obama was destined to win this thing because he was campaigning during Black History Month and "unfortunately for Hillary there's no White Bitch Month."
Happy White Bitch Month, Maureen! Or in the battle cry originated by Tina Fey: Bitch is the New Black!
Obviously, the boys over at MSNBC think every month is White Bitch Month. I knew we were in for a big win last night when I checked the mood of Keith Olbermann. After the Ohio victory was declared, there was Keith pursing his lips, wrinkling his brow, and whining about the urgent need to stop Hillary for the good of the party!
Sorry, Keith. Clearly, your party was ruined last night, but mine was rocking! (Which is why this post is so freaking late. So sorry about that.)
Funny how Keith wants Hillary out for the good of the party, yet Hillary keeps racking up more votes from actual Democrats, while Obama scores big with Republicans.
For the good of whose party, Keith? Hillary 'won the votes of Democrats by a 14 percent margin' in Ohio alone! A victory made sweeter by the fact that Obama outspent Hillary in Ohio, Rhode Island and Texas by a 3 or 4:1 margin.
As our soon to be girrrl president said last night, "Turning hope into reality. Yes, we will!"
Obama apparently spent the night in miser mode counting and recounting his pledges and sending out mass emails to supporters, emails guaranteed to fuel the famous Obama Brand Hillary hatred. Saint Obama told his followers that Hillary beat him via "attacks and distortions. . . stunts and the tactics that ask us to fear instead of hope."
Fear? Fear of Obama, yeah. Fear of the inexperienced candidate who claims that running against Alan Keyes for his senate seat, and now running against Hillary is any kind of preparation for running against Republicans. Ouch, it's way too early in the morning-after-the-party for side-splitting laughter.
Would there even be an Obama campaign without Hillary hatred?
Despite all this, Hillary is dropping hints of a potential dream ticket. "Speaking on 'The Early Show' on CBS, Clinton said 'that may be where this is headed, but of course we have to decide who is on the top of the ticket.'"
Hillary's Ohio victory speech:
For everyone here in Ohio and across America who's ever been counted out but refused to be knocked out, and for everyone who has stumbled but stood right back up, and for everyone who works hard and never gives up, this one is for you.
You know what they say, as Ohio goes, so goes the nation. . . no candidate in recent history, Democrat or Republican, has won the White House without winning the Ohio primary.
"I find it ironic that the most strident of "progressives" find themselves backing the candidate whom does the least well among self-declared Democrats."
