Oh No You Dihn't, Hillary
Yeah, yeah, we've all heard that Hillary more or less implied that she needs to stay in the race in case Obama gets shot.
All the shock and outrage belies the fact that popular Democratic leaders get shot in America. JFK, RFK, MLK all got shot back when Hillary was cutting her political teeth.
Things have changed since those guys got shot.
We have more guns and more people now, which equals more nuts with guns who hate Blacks, women, immigrants, non-Christians and anyone else who's not like them.
I've been saying all along that I am concerned that Sen. Obama stands a better than average risk of being assassinated because he's Black.
Does that mean I want him to be shot? Hell, no.
It simply means I've been around long enough to see what happens when a non-traditional American tries to ascend to a position of power.
Hell, Hillary stands just as strong a chance of getting shot as Obama, but that doesn't mean John Edwards needed to stay in the race just in case.
Here's the deal.
Hillary has shown great tenacity, amazing fortitude and more guts than I would have expected of her in running this race.
But damn, girl, you gotta quit now.
It's not because you more or less implied that you need to stay in the race in case Obama gets shot, it's because you're played out, girl.
We've got to mobilize now and go after that pandering buffoon McCain before he manages to convince America's morons that his plan to continue the failed policies of Bush is a good idea.
McCain has to be stopped. NOW.
