Here comes the last rattle on the snake. Hillary Clinton will sweep the West Virginia primary and… and… and who knows? Isn’t it wonderful how she’s the loser in the race for the Democratic nomination and yet she’s all we’re talking about? Instead of talking about the foolishness, say, of John McCain’s free-market proposals to stop global warming (when it was the free market that got us here), we’re instead asking What Will Hillary Do?
Nice work, if you can get it. Hillary must be proud of this hat trick. On the other hand…more and more people are talking about her as if he she’s a whacko up on a high-story ledge. Former Edwards’ campaign manager David Bonior was quoted Monday talking about Hillary as if she was about to jump. Or like she was ready to push the red button on the dynamite vest she’s strutting around in. Bonior said we have all to calm down, not spook her and, instead, give her “some space” to make the decision on how and when to step back in through the skyscraper window.
Maybe we should get her Mom to talk her down with a bullhorn.
As reported by ABC News, one Democratic Congressman had a more pithy observation:
Rep. Steve Cohen, D-Tenn, an Obama supporter, compared Clinton to the Glenn Close character in “Fatal Attraction” — a spurned woman turned stalker who was apparently drowned in a bathtub only to jump up one more time to be shot dead.
“Glenn Close should have stayed in that tub, and Sen. Clinton has had a remarkable career and needs to move to the next step, which is helping elect the Democratic nominee,” Cohen said during a local TV interview. He later apologized for his comments.
Meanwhile, Ben Smith of The Politico comes up with six different ways to get Hillary to bug off.Â Option #4 (Kicking and Screaming) and Option #5 (a racial meltdown) sound like the most fun.
Which one strikes your fancy?
