Little Dicky is one blogger in particular though he represents the entire Cult of St. Barack. You should be able to tell who he is just by looking (including looking at the colors for the title "The World Today Just Nuts"). The Cult is dwindling.
"Rotten Ol' Bill Clinton, Travel-Smart Hillary Clinton" (Hillary Is 44):
Back in 2008 we addressed Caroline Kennedy and the fact that the main force against her becoming Senator was Hillary Clinton supporters. At the time of the Caroline Kennedy coronation plots we also reported 2×4 Chuck Schumer was on Hillary Clinton supporters’ side due to self-interest (it took Politico weeks to confirm our reporting of Chuck’s involvement).
Eventually 2×4 Schumer’s own treacheries in 2008 and before emerged. This was at a time that Ben Smith headlined a “long and thin” story at Politico called “Game Over: The Clintons Stand Alone“. That stupid piece of typing is something Smith has recently had to eat along with crow and humble pie.
Though we were attacked for our reports back then, we were subsequently proven correct in our disclosures of what was going on behind the scenes. What is going on behind the scenes shifts constantly as new facts and circumstances emerge and new openings reveal themselves and new traps are laid and avoided.
After the ‘Clintons Alone’ blockbuster failure the Big Media narrative shifted to Bill Clinton as some sort of Obama lapdog doing what Obama wanted. Bill Clinton, it was written and repeatedly said, was an Obama ally doing what Obama told him to do and also Hillary was a trapped bird in an Obama cage. So often is this written and said that even intelligent people believe the nonsense.
How often do we hear, even from Hillary Clinton supporters “why oh why is Bill campaigning for Obama?” Another favorite is “Bill Clinton should not campaign for Obama because he more than anyone knows how corrupt and ugly Barack Obama is. Why is Bill Clinton doing this?”
As we have stated, situations change and strategies must change along with them. Timetables have to be changed sometimes as well. Some basics however, remain. This weekend Kevin, the naughty boy at HillBuzz, addressed the issue of “the list”. “The List” is populated with Claire McCaskill types and many others who stabbed Hillary in the back. The List” remains immutable. Like water flowing around obstacles, the strategies and timetables however, change.
Our argument since 2008 here at Big Pink has been that Obama (along with his henchmen and enablers) must be driven from the race in 2012. The sooner death, doom, and destruction are visited upon the Obama Dimocratic Party the sooner we can return to the winning FDR/Hillary Clinton coalition.
That the Democratic Party of FDR/Hillary Clinton will return is only a matter of time. This will happen either after defeat in 2010 or after further defeat in 2012 or after even further defeat in 2016. But it will happen. We are saying “the sooner the better” and recall the best way to remove a band-aid is to rip it off quickly rather than a long and painful process.
An example of a strategy timetable possibly changing is the debate of Hillary Clinton in 2012 or 2016. Bill Clinton might have kept himself busy outside politics in 2010 when the timetable was 2016. But once the obvious collapse of Obama Dimocrats in 2010 became so obvious it also became obvious that a change in timetable and strategy was wise because 2012 becomes an increasingly real possibility.
Bill Clinton knows that only a concerted effort and multiple appearances (think Blanche Lincoln and the Arkansas primary) by him can help a candidate win election. A onetime appearance for a candidate will not save that candidate unless they are bound for victory already. Bill Clinton’s visits are not multiple appearances that will determine victory nor is Bill Clinton on a tour with Barack Obama and/or Joe Biden and/or Michelle Obama to get out the vote.
For the past two years Hillary Clinton has kept as far away from Barack Obama as is possible. This entire election season Hillary Clinton is also traveling as far far from Barack Obama as possible. Sometime after the November elections Big Media will take note of a thus far ignored aspect of Hillary Clinton’s travel schedule.
While some in Big Media have noted that Hillary Clinton will be away from the United States they have not taken particular notice of the dates.I am so hoping the Cult of St. Barack can be sent packing in these mid-terms but if not, I am on board with leaving them to their own devices in 2012 as well. I want the Democratic Party that believes in labor, believes in universal health care, believes in public financing for elections, believes in the Constitution.
That is not the Democratic Party that Barack Obama is (mis)leading.
And should Hillary challenge Barack in 2012 (I doubt she will), I will support her 100%.
Vanessa Williams had some good scenes last night but not enough. She was good in all of her scenes but she's still not doing enough.
The episode itself floundered for me.
Terri Hatcher did a physical comedy bit -- up in the air hanging by a banner that breaks -- that really wasn't needed and that only delayed what I think we all knew was coming. Terri's being manipulated into doing nudity and online sex. If she won't do it, she won't make the money needed to get her and Mike out of debat. Anyone who trusted Laine Kazan (and some still may) wasn't paying attention. That was the whole point, the week before, when Terri was talking to the other woman working for Lanie and found out how long that woman had been saving up. Lanie's a crook.
Bree (Kimberly from Melrose) had some nice scenes as she battled it out with Vanessa but she didn't have enough to do either. (Vanessa's best scene was either at the table with Gabby and others or at the sushi place with Brian Austin Green when Bree sent over a little person to scare Vanessa.)
I think the new mother (five children all together), Felecity whatever, gets way too much screen time. No offense, but that's how I see it. Are we supposed to say, "Oh, look, June Cleaver! I want to be her!"?
Gabby's scenes were written too obvious. There was no surprise to them and you knew everything that was going to happen before it did. Which is too bad because Eva's such a good actress.
She's met Grace -- her and Carlos' biological daughter that was accidentally switched at birth. I am very worried Juanita's about to be tossed aside and Gabby's going to tell Carlos she wants to raise Grace. (Either that or Grace's parents are going to die so Gabby can have both Juanita and Grace.)
