Mrs Clinton is shooting herself in the foot. Aegrys and Ivan, just enjoy the cartoon.

You know every time you make any criticism, especially in caricature, I have to listen to a three-hour rant by some moronic Hillary supporter about how unfair the campaign is and how Obama stole the primary from her. Please, just let her die.

I’m growing very tired of explaining government recorded, verifiable, valid facts to Hillary people. Let it die. So friggin’ tired. Won’t give up, but am becoming exhausted because facts don’t matter to Clintonites or Republicans. It’s about winning, it’s about their brown-shirts and cults of death and cycle of ignorance.

I really wish I had a better understanding of the human psyche because there is no rational explanation for the kind of hatred and self-righteous indignation I’m hearing from these uninformed, rude, chest-beating, ultra-super-über supporters clanging down route 666 with all guns blazing.

Everything will settle eventually, but right now… every little cartoon of Hillary, criticism or fact is going to cause another rupture. The dust has not settled yet because the nuclear fallout is just beginning.

I am so freaking annoyed with this campaign this week. In the light of McClellen’s book, Yellin’s confession and the subpoena of Karl Rove… we’re almost beginning to right the course of this nation.  Obama has sworn to go after Bush crimes, will erase the unconstitutional executive orders and signing statements, get out of Iraq and re-write the tax code… and all I hear is Hillary is being treated unfairly.

How. Absolutely. Undeniably. Selfish.

It’s sickening how every time we try to extend our hands, forgive and unify they stand obstinately behind their wall of brash selfishness. Grow up.

She seems to be very good at doing that, lately. If the gun she is holding is Serbian, that would help. And at that range, she can hardly miss (like she has been doing lately). Now if you can just give her a donut in the other hand, and have her wear Rachel Ray’s scarf, she could be an assassin AND a terrorist.
