Yeah, she hoisted a cold one, so?
The media and the Obama Claymates have really made hay out of Hillary showing up in a small town Pennsylvania bar and doing a shot of Crown Royal, followed by a mug of beer and pizza with the locals.
How is this news?
Meanwhile, Obama poorly worded his description of the desperation that smothers blue collar Pennsylvanians, and he too was vilified by the media and the Clintonistas.
How is that news?
Of the two events, I think Hillary scored the most points by showing that a lady can toss back a boilermaker with the fellas without getting a case of the vapors. I think it'll play with blue collar PA voters because it shows her rowdy side, and we all love a rowdy side.
Obama wasn't being elitist when he uttered those remarks about guns, religion and bitterness. Hasn't anyone seen "The Deer Hunter," for chrissakes?
By now, it really doesn't matter which Democrat makes the gaffes. We are on board with whoever wins the nomination.
While the ridiculously dumbed-down media feasts upon goofy photo ops and well meaning but intemperate quotes made by the Democrats, let us not forget the real issues at hand.
-We just endured Petrayus and Crocker serving the Congress a steaming platter of crap that said nothing about anything in Iraq, except to say fragile progress has been made, but it is reversible. What? Three billion tax dollars and five years for that?
We know Bush directed them to equivocate so he could buy enough time to leave the incredibly fucked-up mess he created in Iraq to the next president.
-We are paying more than $3 a gallon for gas and it's crippling average Americans and the trucking industry who deliver our groceries.
-The GOP Slime Machine already is busily at work, turning campaign donations into weapons of mass delusion they plan to foist off on the vastly ignorant electorate.
-We know for sure now that the torture and abuse of detainees perpetrated by our military did not come from the bottom up; it came from Bush's hand-picked minions who hatched their devious plans from the White House Situation Room while Bush stayed busy coloring in the next room.
We cannot feed upon the minuscule gaffes and goofy photos of our Democratic candidates. We cannot lose focus of the horrendously bad decisions made by the current administration.
And most of all, we cannot divert our attention with banal fripperies the media serves us about our Democratic candidates.
One glimpse at the comments section of the Huffington Post tells us our fellow Democrats still are busily harpooning either Hillary or Obama over the most minor ripples.
We have met the enemy and they are the current administration and anyone they endorse. That's where our focus should be.
