Obama Campaign Mails Olbermann's 'Hate Hillary Screed' to 'Entire Political Press Corps'

Let's see now, the New Holier-Than-Thou Politics of Barack Obama is about taking your cues from Republican hacks like Drudge and the New York Post and then smearing your opponent with every hate-inspired hysterical sick low-life drama-queen interpretation that Republicans send your way.

Hillary refers to LBJ and poof she is a vile racist. Hillary mentions 'white people' and poof she is a super-dooper double vile racist. Hillary references RFK's assassination, and OMG, the Evil Bitch wants Obama and all black people to die!!!

Or as John F. Harris at Politico admits: "The truth about what Clinton said — and any fair-minded appraisal of what she meant — was entirely beside the point. . Clinton's RFK comments provide a vivid example of how modern journalism has become a hyperkinetic child."

So naturally Obama's Holier than Hillary Campaign sent out to "the entire political press corps" the entire hateful transcript of Keith Olbermann's latest 'Hate Screed for the Obamanation,' otherwise known as: 'The Evil Bitch IS The Anti-Christ and That's Why You Must HATE HER!'

Orwell called it the Two Minutes Hate. Keith Olbermann calls it a Special Comment. The right-wing may own the market on hate-talk radio, but the left-wing has hate-talk teevee. It turns out that the premise of the New Politics of Obama is that the only way to beat Republicans is to be exactly like them. And no where is this sick premise better demonstrated than in Keith Olbermann's Two Minutes Hate.

You remember Keith Olbermann? The hate talk jock who has been spotted reading Obama campaign memos aloud, verbatim, on air, and calling it MSNBC programming? The hate talk jock who has suggested that the only way to get Hillary to quit the race is for a person with a penis to physically beat the bitch senseless?

And, yeah, the Obama campaign that boasts about its New Politics of Hope is the very same Obama campaign that sent out those dirty memos portraying Hillary and Bill as evil racists.

I don't know about you, but I've had all the New Politics of Hate I can stand. Obama's New Politics of 'Change You Can Believe In' would be better termed:

Change You Can Choke On

Katharine Q. Seelye at The Caucus:

Howard Wolfson, Mrs. Clinton’s spokesman, said that both the media and the Obama campaign had been fanning the flames.

The Obama campaign had sent an e-mail on Friday to reporters saying the remarks had no place in a presidential campaign. It was relying on a faulty online report in the New York Post that said Mrs. Clinton was “making an odd comparison between the dead candidate and Barack Obama.” By immediately jumping into the story, within a matter of minutes, the Obama campaign fed suggestions that Mrs. Clinton had somehow made a link between Mr. Obama and Mr. Kennedy’s death.

In addition, the Obama campaign sent the entire political press corps the transcript of a searing commentary about Mrs. Clinton by Keith Olbermann on MSNBC.

New York Daily News: Hillary: Why I continue to run
Vast Left: Hillary Clinton's disturbing pattern
KoreanPower: Obama Abandons ‘Presumption of Good Faith’
Cannonfire: Now they're going after RFK Jr! -- Keith, See a Shrink!

"But I was deeply dismayed and disturbed that my comment would be construed in a way that flies in the face of everything I stand for — and everything I am fighting for in this election.”
-- Hillary Rodham Clinton
