Hey Pundits! Eat Cake!
Yeah, yeah all the polls wrote off Hillary in New Hampshire. Then she kicked ass.
So what do all the Obamatists say? They laud Obama for coming in second, as if he somehow won in New Hampshire.
He made a decent showing, but he didn't win in New Hampshire.
For Hillary to be considered by the media a dead duck on the same day as the vote, her victory was more than a simple win, it was an ass kicking.
But the great news is, we have a woman and a black man neck and neck in the race. That alone is a miracle worth celebrating. And even if something goes wrong in both camps, we'd get John Edwards. He's perfectly fine, too.
Meanwhile, war-scrambled John McCain won by a flimsy lead in New Hampshire, over that cultist robot Mitts Romney. Huckabee came in a distant third. McCain hasn't got a chance over any of the Democratic frontrunners. So we scored a double victory.
In all honesty, Obama's extemporaneous "concession" speech was sensational--a lot fresher than Hillary's statement, which she had to look down and read from notes all too often.
But her words were sincere, I think, and the bashing she took before the win may have given her a gift she needed desperately: humility.
Maybe she has found her voice.
Maybe she knows now that she can't hide in Bill's pants pocket after all.
Maybe she'll shed her Scorpio tendency to shield the real her and show us who the fuck she is.
No matter what, we ALL won in New Hampshire last night. The only way is up. Yay!
