Apollo 4 on column of fire

The ongoing sagacity of Randi Rhodes

Today Randi Rhodes, who begged for a brokered convention with backroom deals, is complaining about the superdelegates and the backroom dealing, calling it ‘ridiculous’.

(At least Randi doesn’t give the impression of having sound cerebral processes, the way Thom Hartmann does up until he zounds you with a whopping stupidity. Oh, for a hundred unshaven but soundly reasoning Sam Seders—and a hundred Janeane Garofalos to get into quasi-marital spats with the Sams!)

David Schuster

I just heard the infamous Shuster ‘pimp’ usage, which the Clintons are milking for all it is worth, and it was a mildly distasteful passage, but not because Schuster used the word ‘pimp’—rather, because Shuster could push the notion that it is odd for Chelsea Clinton to call superdelegates on behalf of her mother. What in the world?

Mind you, Chelsea Clinton should not be calling superdelegates, but that’s because there shouldn’t be superdelegates to call.

What Brent Budowsky just said

On the Richard Greene talk radio program just now, Brent Budowsky said it is going to hit the news that some of Clinton’s superdelegates are telling the Clintons that, no, they won’t help them to beat the caucus and primary results, if Obama comes out ahead in that.

Clintons go home

I often reason in the following way, and it seems to serve me well: if I am being affected in a certain way, then likely it is a more general phenomenon in the population. With the Clintons trying to get David Shuster fired and not, say, Chris Matthews, Joe Scarborough, Sean Hannitty, Bill O’Reilly, etc.—well, I just removed all our gift-from-the-party pictures of Bill Clinton from our refrigerator (including one with Hillary in it, but also one with Buddy as a large puppy and one with Al Gore). Frankly, I don’t know what the Clintons hoped to gain from this; outrage in Hillary Clinton followers? But what about the rest of us?

Then this business where the Clinton campaign announced a shuffle in the campaign staffing, what was that about? I suppose that, because a big noise about the Clinton campaign being short of funds resulted in big fundraising, big noise about a campaign ‘shake-up’ would result in, what, a big increase in the size of the staff?

Just go away, Clintons. Just go away. It’s amazing how you guys can ruin what was a good thing. Bill isn’t even an ex-president anymore; he just threw it away, after having been a guy whose picture was all over our refrigerator and probably surprisingly many other refrigerators around the country.

So, then, how many more Democratic voters possessing Clinton memorabilia have begun to want the Clintons to go away and let us forget they exist?
