Justin Gardner is exactly right; waiting for your opponent’s assassination is NOT a viable campaign strategy.
I really, really, REALLY tried magnanimity. I really, really, REALLY, tried to be fair in my criticism, and I turned the other cheek on slights that personally disturbed me. I have, over the course of the past few weeks, offered the olive branch time and again, and I have given Mrs. Clinton every ounce of credit she deserves and so much more. I have even struggled to rise above the absolutely ridiculous comments of her deranged, and yes, let’s face it, cultish supporters.
I tried to be the better. But I have had enough.
DAYS after Senator Ted Kennedy was diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor, knowing full well the personal safety implications that her opponent faces being a black man running for president in a country where white supremicist hate groups still assemble, Senator Hillary Clinton references the assassination of Bobby Kennedy as one of the reasons SHE is still in this race.
Fuck it. She’s done. Eject this foul thing from our party, that is the only acceptable measure left for the Democratic establishment.
This is simply disgusting. DISGUSTING! Who does this? Who literally says, “Well, I should stay in the running because my opponent just might be assassinated, and if I dropped out before that… Where would be then, huh?”
Keith Olbermann is supposedly going to issue his second special comment to Senator Clinton during this primary, and her supporters, blinded by abject MADNESS, are going to decry him as a sexist, but no. She is getting what she deserves.
In fact, harsh words are the very tip of the iceberg of what Senator Clinton deserves.
She must be ousted. She’s willing to break the party over not being picked as VP? Fuck it, we’ll take the goddam loss, see your way out the door and out of political life completely, America will be the better for it.
I was supposed to take a nice long weekend here so I could rest up, enjoy my eleventh anniversary with my wife, and be ready to go come Tuesday of next week. I’m still going to do that. But this could not be allowed to pass.
And I cannot allow myself to defend her anymore. There is only one acceptable time for Clinton to leave this race, and if I had my way, this party: AS SOON AS FUCKING POSSIBLE!
No quarter for this woman. Ever!
