Memo to the man who looks like a rabid mutant infant, James Carville


So, when asked on Good Friday about Richardson’s rejection of the Clintons [ie: Bill Richardson’s endorsement of Obama], the metaphor was too good to pass by. I compared Richardson to Judas Iscariot.

I dunno if you missed the email, Jimmy, but Hillary sure ain’t Jesus.

(And Matthew Dowd is right: Had it been the Fourth of July, I probably would have called him Benedict Arnold.)

And she sure ain’t General Washington, either.

So when you contrast your candidate as the ultimate good fighting against the ultimate evil, then yes, people are going to be pissed off at you — especially since it’s supposed that we’re all on the same side here.

Please droolingly file this under “DUUUURRRRR!”, thank you.

  1. You know… and I’ll probably explain this on a post starting Monday, I’m slowly coming to a mind that I want this primary to go to the convention. Looking at some of the raw polling data I was looking at earlier today, if she keeps going with this campaign and letting it run the way it is, she may very well run the risk of getting booted out of the Democratic party.

  2. tas says:

    Would that mean the formation of a third, angry middle party? And would she then become McCain’s running mate?

  3. Well, no… I’m generally skeptical of the formation of an actual, viable third party on the national level, but, shorter: looking at the Pew research’s poll that got advertized as “ZOMG 12 PERCENT THINK OBAMA IS MUSLIM!!!11eleven11!!!” I saw the way Hillary and Obama’s attributes stacked up next to each other, and it paints a picture where the longer she stays in this race, not only does the delegate math get worse for her, but public opinion of her becomes a much bigger obstacle.
