That was a great one and a real surprise. I know Isaiah's really too busy to be able to do these during the week and I really appreciate that he made the time because I can tell you his schedule's really rough these days.
"Hillary Clinton At Colombey-les-Deux-Églises, Part I" (Hillary Is 44):
Like the good Scorpio she is Hillary Clinton has a Methodist core which values loyalty. Detractors will say she and Bill are plotting all along to bring down Barack “the boob” Obama. But that entirely misses the point.
During the primaries of 2008 and before Hillary Clinton got to know Barack Obama very well. Better than the boy raised by wolves knows himself. Hillary knew Barack was not ready. Hillary knew Barack would be a disaster to country and to party. Hillary knew she would have to remain ready and do what she could to save the world and this nation from the damage that Obama would do. Hillary’s greater loyalty is to country.
Hillary is at Colombey-les-Deux-Églises, looking at the shore. Hillary knows more storms are on their way. Hillary knows she will soon have to captain the ship through the great storms to come.Do it, challenge him. I want to see someone do it. Someones even. If not, I argue, we will not only lose the White House in 2012, we'll have to wait three terms to get it back. Barack is Jimmy Carter: The Disaster President. It will take three terms to live that down.
I can't believe this idiot got elected.
I want to include this from Tina Brown (Daily Beast):
As from Wednesday, I’d like the president to stop being so high-minded about avoiding corny symbolic theatrics and start playing to win. The absurd myth, for instance, that he's really a Muslim would be easier to knock out if he strode from the White House every Sunday with a big old Gutenberg Bible and marched his family—with the first daughters in adorable Sunday best—to the nearest Episcopalian church. Back in his Chicago Senate days, when he was seeking greater black credibility, Obama was happy enough to attend the Reverend Jeremiah Wright’s Trinity United Church of Christ. What’s wrong with a bit of God-fearing symbolism of a different kind now? There was a reason Hillary Clinton showed up at the weekly Senate Prayer Breakfasts when she was trying to network across the aisles. “Worshipping in private,” as Obama does, comes off as just another form of annoying elitism.
Amen, Tina, amen.
