Hillary Takes 3 out of 4!

For those who counted her out- BWAHAHAHAHA!
Never underestimate the magic of resilience.
And guess what?
She's favored in big, fat Pennsylvania.

The caucus..the caucus..we have to wait for the TX caucus! ;p

I heard some Obamanistas locked out some Hillaryites at one caucus site this evening.

Oh, good. It's about time the little angels learned how to play hardball.
My biggest fear is that Obama's too green to anticipate the filthy race the GOP is prepared to run.
His premature victory speech tonight in a county that didn't carry the vote for him was one good example.
Like I've said a dozen times, he better learn to Man-Up quick and drop all this dreamy vision and yes-we-can horseshit.
If Hillary can bitchslap him like she did tonight, he's got a lot to learn before he's ready for the GOP.

Dusty said...

I agree the GOP will kill him..but I also think they will toss everything they have at Hillary and she does have a huge negative factor that will see the Rethug lovers FLOCK to the polls..ala the Rovian tactic of Gays and abortion in the 2000 and 04 general elections.

Will she be able to overcome that?

Karen Zipdrive said...

She only has to mention gas prices, lies that led to this $3 trillion war, the onslaught of recession, Valerie Plame, healthcare for everyone, veterans benefits, 100 years of war, Bomb Bomb Iran, McCain's senility, his dope addicted wife, his temper, his flippy flopping, his hugging Bush, ad nauseam.
She and Bill caught everything the GOP threw at them and threw it back.
Obama? He had to have his wife defend him when Hillary first started gigging him.

Dusty said...

Well, it is going to be interesting from here on out. It was getting quite boring with Obama's 11 in a row..

I gotta hit the sack..its been fun, but I am going to watch the rest of this in bed with the doggies.

Karen Zipdrive said...

Just ask yourself- if Obama lost 3 out of 4 states after just one week of Hillary fast pitching to him, is his jaw made of glass or eggshells?
She tasted blood tonight. And I think she liked it.

Karen Zipdrive said...

Thanks for staying up with me.
I think it's safe to go to sleep now myself.
:D

Dusty said...

He also outspent her like 3 or 4 to 1.

It was a pleasure KZ, sleep tight..kiss Jake for me..I got those damn dogs ;p

CLD said...

WOO! I laughed my ass off last night. Everyone was pushing for her to drop out of the race. HA!

karenzipdrive said...

They were pushing because they knew she still stood a chance.
Maybe Obama should drop out since she's winning the popular vote.

Anonymous said...

Who should drop out?

Here's an idea worth considering.

karenzipdrive said...

A brilliant idea.
To take it one step further, I'd love it if Hillary and Obama would make a joint announcement:

"Our fellow Americans,
Because we anticipate a particularly well-financed and viscious presidential race, we have agreed to stop all capaigning until a Democratic candidate is selected by due process, then pool our remaining campaign money and let the winning Democratic candidate use it to defeat John McCain.
Please check our respective websites for our positions, and ask any questions you may still have on our sites.
We will make no further statements, grant no further interviews and have no further debates until the general election season begins.
Thank you for refraining from further public comments about either of us until then.
Love,
Hillary and Barack"

That comment deserves to be its own post.

I am not looking forward to the time between now and the Pennsylvania primary. The substance is not going to change. Both candidates realizing they aren't getting any traction focusing on that will shift to gotcha politics where they work instead to trip up the other person or exaggerate some hitherto unknown minor flaw. This will leave John McCain with even more time to play wargame scenarios in his head. Not good.

karenzipdrive said...

Hillary's secret weapon is her sense of humor and willingness to make an occasional self deprecating remark.
She got some serious mileage out of SNL and Jon Stewart's show and she said she plans to make more appearances like that.
Obama has no discernable sense of humor, and that's going to hurt him sooner or later.

dguzman said...

Zip, this whole post and all the comments are PURE EFFING GOLD. I thought I was happy on Tuesday night--you're downright giddy!

Your idea of Hillary and Barack doing the "we're saving it for McGeezer" is brilliant! If only you were in charge, instead of that loser Penn.

Karen Zipdrive said...

Oh, no. I have way too many skeletons in my closet to be anywhere the media is sniffing around.
The very first above-the-fold byline I got back when I was a reporter was very exciting to me, so I took it to show my mother.
She said, "Oh, honey, I'm so glad your name isn't in the paper because of a crime you committed."

Seriously, the Repubs are loving the Dem slugfest so we probably should consider that our woman or man may not be the Dem nominee, but at least they're both DEMOCRATS. Today I overheard the fat assed head of the Burnet County Republican Women's Party Headquarters say,"I love that once again those stupid Democrats are going at each other, spending all their money on fighting, meanwhile McCain is gonna rally our party for another victory."

karenzipdrive said...

Yeah, sis, the GOP love to see us bickering but we are bickering over lobster or prime rib.
They, on the other hand, are serving some dry old wrinkled weiner that half their party can't even stand.
If anyone these days is still so fucking stupid that they think ANY Republican can beat our meat or our lobster, they are too delusional to be taken seriously.
That same old GOP bitch you heard today gave me a McCain bumper sticker, which I promptly affixed to a nearby trash can.
I may go to McCain HQ in San Antonio and get a big yard sign, to which I'll affix another sign that says, "If you love being broke, vote for..."
or
"If you want you son killed in the war, vote for..."

Ask Jimmy Carter how it worked out for him when Ted Kennedy and other Dems turned on him in 1980. We ended up with the beloved, and demented, Ronald Raygun.

I like the idea of focusing on destroying McCain's chances and hope that O and H decide to be on the same ticket, yum, surf and turf.

karenzipdrive said...

Jimmy Carter didn't get re-elected because home interest rates jumped to 19% and we were having to sit in lines to pay an outrageous 79 cents a gallon to gas up our cars.
This is a Kentucky Derby level horse race, and we gotta find out NOW whether the dark horse can compete.
His dainty ankles concern me, because the next phase will be an ass kicking contest.

I read the "MoDowd" article and all I have to say to you Zip is "I fold."
