Bushian Tactics Win TX and OH Primaries
CLINTON wins primaries (not caucuses) in TX and OH, and Obama wins VT.
Funny, how the media bullhorn was pumping up Obama for weeks and then turned right around and began pumping up Clinton and I have the feeling that too many of the voices that opine out there in MSMland are much more interested in seeing the two Dem contenders tear each other (and all in their path) up than they are to see old Fuddy Duddy McWarface square off against either one. If you like, just call it a silly characterization of a Beast That Has No Brain, but I'm betting now that Clinton looks better, the pundits will even it off a little, to keep Obama present in our minds. Back and forth, back and forth. Maybe we can drag it out until summer...
Nobody much cares about looking at McCain because it's too EASY to look at the party that got our nation in the deep deep trouble its in and that feels oogy, we might have to remember that CheneyBush has singlehandedly destroyed our economy, global standing, and morale and now the GOP potential successor is running on the same damn platform. That might look like the Dems would take it! Better to just focus on Dems hating Dems, twice the insults, twice the focus on the party that really ought to be nailing down this election with one hand. Maybe I'm silly to even think it matters who wins. But I sure don't look forward to McCrazy taking idle potshots at both Obama and HRC Inc. while they go round and round with each other.
Suddenly this battle between two Dems going on and on until it possibly even reaches Oregon—all while the McCainiac casually chooses his best shoes and running mate—really depresses me. This man is dangerous! And he's just takin' his time and not even being scrutinized. Ai yi yi.
Mostly, it just disgusts and saddens me that Clinton pulled out her fear wand again in speeches last night (and if the election becomes about "Nat'l Security" as she's framing it using the 2001 - 2008 Bushian Fear Frames, why is McCain not at a great advantage?) and that she is using fake Bushian newscasts and that even with no real numerical chance to pull this off, her campaign sees such means as acceptable. I don't think we have any doubt that the Clintons will take it as far as they have to. Chase that Sweet-treat of Power until nothing is left standing and the "Left" splits irrevocably into smaller factions that care more for warring with each other than changing what our nation has become. Oh well. Should I even care?
Why does she not see how distressing it is to hear the "Left" running and succeeding using the poisoned memes and thinking that Bush has used to molest our nation and psyche for most of the last ten years? Why do the Clintons not see that nothing could be more dispiriting than watching the continuation of these ugly methods and smallish views? Even (and especially) when they continue to be effectively employed and hailed as "success"?
