Hillery imploding, Huck ‘bunkers’ goof, Mitt misremembers, Paulbots found
Posted by Mike O on December 22, 2007
Hillary blantly plants a question and Sunday School teacher (with a convenient picture), sets up Obama attack sites easily traced back to her campaign, while Bill aburdly calls her a ‘World-Class genius’. I would hope a world-class genius would be able not to run a long-prepared, well-funded, well-oiled monster political machine off the cliff before the first votes are cast, like ‘Ms. Inevitable’ has managed to do. Anybody got a copy of ‘Politics for Dummies’ they could loan them?
Huckabee accusses the Bush administration of an ‘arrogant bunker mentality’, then responds to being questioned on it with: “I may not have even written the line that has you so upset.” Condi Rice delivers an appropriate head-slap.
Mitt flubs with “My father and I marched with Martin Luther King Jr. through the streets of Detroit.” Clearly, Mitt himself did not do that, from all known accounts. However, instead of just ‘fessing up and admitting a goof, Mitt’s crew insists on parsing the heck out of it all. The issue is minor, but their handling of it has been inept. More significant to me was his claim this last Sunday that he received an NRA endorsement in 2002 that he did not. Couple that with his ‘lifelong hunter’ fib in the past, and it indicates he has a ‘fabulism issue’.
McCain’s busily racking up endorsements from peple that are NOT friends of the GOP, including Boston papers, etc. You think he might want to hold off on those until the general? Not the smart way to get the nomination initially.
Giuliani was pretty much exhonerated from trying to hide the costs of his extramarital affair to the taxpayer; it was out there in the open for most of the time. Of course, it also reminds us that there were taxpayers costs to this.
Then, on the really loony side, The Paulbot online poll spamming site has been uncovered. I watched one poll go from 1% for Paul to 28% in moments when they fired up their operation.
Fred’s big goof; an innappropriate ‘silly hat’ comment (he would look silly in a fireman’s helmet: ask Dukakis about how big a mistake that can be) well covered on the spot. The biggest part of this story was how massively misrepresented this was by a hostile press.
OK: given all of this, Fred is looking better and better.
My additions to ‘You might be a Fredhead if you think- ‘
.. that the only video you want to see on terrorists is from the camera of a Predator before they disappear in a flash.
.. that Harry Reid proves that some kids weren’t beat up enough on the schoolyard playground
.. that affairs in the White House should be political in nature, not extramarital
.. that environmentalism should start with reducing government paper wasted on printing non-English documentation.
