A lesson in scummy leftist ops.
Via Oliver Willis in 2008:
Hillary Rodham Clinton vowed Wednesday to continue her quest for the Democratic nomination, arguing she would be the stronger nominee because she appeals to a wider coalition of voters — including whites who have not supported Barack Obama in recent contests.
“I have a much broader base to build a winning coalition on,” she said in an interview with USA TODAY. As evidence, Clinton cited an Associated Press article “that found how Sen. Obama’s support among working, hard-working Americans, white Americans, is weakening again, and how whites in both states who had not completed college were supporting me.”
“There’s a pattern emerging here,” she said.
Indeed, a pattern has emerged some time ago. Boy, did we dodge a bullet.
“[W]orking, hard-working Americans, white Americans”. She really said that. Wow.
Congratulations, Hillary Clinton, you win the prize for the first Democratic Bigot Eruption since I’ve been keeping track of this. Even professional haters like Pat Buchanan and his ilk aren’t so balls-out about racism. You’ve been getting your ass handed to you and especially among black voters. This shows me once again that we – who are apparently lazy and shiftless non-Americans based on your definition – have yet again been a leading indicator.
He even compared her to the Klan and Bull Connor:
There was maybe a slight chance Barack Obama might have been pushed to pick you as his running mate, but we can’t have someone spouting Klan-style talking points on the ticket. Heck, there’s a good shot with language like that you won’t win back your senate seat in 2012. I mean, a lot of those apparently lazy and shiftless non-American blacks helped you to win and they’d just as soon vote for someone else in the primary or the Republican in the election rather than someone echoing Bull Connor’s language.
Today? Now with the election not about pushing Barack Obama but Hillary? Now, how dare people criticize this paragon!
The media is obsessed with getting into the weeds of what Hillary Clinton is wearing. Why? Because she is a woman. There is no other reason for it.
Hillary Clinton has been First Lady of Arkansas, First Lady of The United States, a United States Senator and Secretary of State. She’s written five books, which is five more than most of us.
The least important thing about Hillary Clinton is whether she’s wearing a dress or pantsuit, letting her hair down or going with an up-do.
What matters about Clinton is her ideas for taking America forward, whether she can execute on those ideas, and whether those ideas are good or bad for the country – you know, like with all the other people who have ever run for the office.
If you find yourself writing about what Clinton is wearing and What It All Means, stop. Just, stop.
I guess ‘Bull Connor’ Clinton is now acceptable…
