Hillary Clinton, her only principle being victory at all costs, not satisfied.
Democratic Party leaders agreed Saturday to seat Michigan and Florida delegates with half-votes at this summer’s convention with a compromise that left Barack Obama on the verge of the nomination but riled Hillary Rodham Clinton backers who threatened to fight to the August convention.
“Hijacking four delegates is not a good way to start down the path of party unity,” said adviser Harold Ickes.
Clinton’s camp maintains she was entitled to four additional Michigan delegates.
That’s Harold Ickes, lying cocksucker. Party unity? Hillary is threatening to fight until August, and that slimy piece of shit Ickes is talking to us about party unity? Four delegates?
And wow, people tried complaining about Obama supporters, but Hillary’s people are going apewild certified batshit, turning straight into rightwing smear merchants to honor the Rovian sociopath that Hilliary has become.
…the rhetoric from the top has imparted its poison below, and the bitterest criticisms of Obama gain traction as they circulate through the virulently-pro-Hillary echo chamber. “Would you rather have a president who had an affair [Bill Clinton] or one who was a murderer [Obama]?” Jeannie, the Greensboro Democrat, asks a fellow in a floppy Tilley hat and Hillary buttons. “That’s a good point,” he replies.
Yeah, Hillary people, that’s it: fuck you if you’re still on board at this point. Fuck you if you’re still claiming this is about sexism, or democracy, or anything on this planet other than the fact that Hillary’s head has officially disappeared up her ass and she’s taking as many people with her into Imaginationland as she can. This has gone too far. There is no rhyme, no reason, nothing at all here except this: Hillary wants it all, and doesn’t care if she’s earned it; if she can’t have it all, then everybody else, including the Democratic party, can burn in hell. And she’ll do it while having her professional liars out there talking about party unity.
No more. No more threats. No more, “I’m gonna vote for John McCain!” No more irrational demanding of my respect when all you’ve done is cultivate my 100% justified ire. No more talking about sexism or democracy and pretending you’re “just sayin’,” you’re “not really doing it for Hillary,” because you didn’t bring it up by coincidence, and you’re enabling her anyway.
And no more trying to blame Barack Obama and taking out your anger on him either. He didn’t cheat Hillary, he didn’t rob her, he didn’t “take it away from a woman.” In reality, she tried to cheat him, and mostly failed, although it is highly unethical to change the rules of an election afterwards to suit yourself. No, what Barack Obama did was follow the rules, make his case, and win more elections, more voters, and, most importantly, more delegates.
Right now, Hillary has no chance of winning unless almost 100% of the remaining superdelegates go to her, spontaneously, despite her incredibly poor arguments. The point that seems to have gone missing lately is that she has already lost the race, and every single day prolonging this fight is another day working against a Democratic victory in November, against a repudiation of the Bush years. Hillary is working every day to vindicate the Bush years and all their stubborn reality-denying failures, and to destroy the middling legacy of the Clinton years. This is nothing more and nothing less than the quest for power and the submission to its corruption, for all meaning is splayed and twisted around it.
Of course, it almost went without saying: to every Democratic superdelegate sitting on your hands right now, you’ve enabled this too. The signals were clear after North Carolina, others like Byrd and Edwards piped up, and the door was wide open. So we, the people, have had to sit around and wait while you chickenshits dawdle and fritter away. We must listen to chatter of democracy while you elites hold us over the fire.
It is over and it is time to go after John McCain. Yes, I know the “higher path” is to ignore Hillary and just join Obama in slapping McCain around, but there is, as I’ve mentioned before, the question: when are Hillary, and (now we must include) her supporters, responsible for their own actions?
UPDATE: The sweet honey of my kindness will flow soon if this report more accurately reflects what’s going on inside the Clinton camp. Harold Ickes is still a lying cocksucker though.
