Too Little Too Late

Some Clinton supporters are pointing out that Hillary said this:
Clinton was asked by a questioner in the audience here what she would tell frustrated Democrats who might consider voting for McCain in the general election out of spite.

“Please think through this decision,” Clinton said, laughing and emphasizing the word “please.”

“It is not a wise decision for yourself or your country.”


“First of all, every time you have a vigorous contest like we are having in this primary election people get intense,” she continued. “You know, Sen. Obama has intense support. I have intense support.”

Clinton stressed that there are “significant” differences between her and Obama, but said “those differences pale to the differences between us and Sen. McCain.”

“I intend to do everything I can to make sure we have a unified Democratic party,” she said. “When this contest is over and we have a nominee, we’re going to close ranks, we’re going to be united.”

Be serious. Clinton, her campaign, and her supporters have been saying that Obama is an empty suit, all he has is one speech in 2002, that McCain is the one with experience, that McCain is the one who is patriotic, that McCain is the one who loves his country. They have somehow managed to make Obama into the worst misogynist who ever was born. After sucking up to McCain for months and talking up how much better he is than Obama, now it was just politics? And her supporters are supposed to vote for Obama after he has been demonized and McCain has been sainted by her campaign? Oh sure, they're going to vote for the shucking, jiving, drug dealing, undercover Muslim (terrorist!), jew hating, anti-American, anti-choice, wanting to start a race war with his reverend, empty suit, misogynist candidate.

Thanks for nothing, Hillary, after you and Bill planted your lips all over McCain's ass now you tell us, "Oops we didn't mean it".

Jebus! Hows about this deal: in 2012, she can try again, and but that time she can just go head and skip the whole campaigning-for-the-Republicans business. And then we'll see.

It's only politics!

Maybe they know something we don't know. I wonder how this is all going to play out especially at the convention.

But then I'm too busy fostering a division between White women and women of color that didn't exist until I came along to keep track with the Democratic travails. It's interesting to hear something I get a bit from White male conservatives from White feminists. Mirroring the patriarchy, indeed.

Have a great time at the conference, take care and write all about it!
