...it's not dark yet, but it's gettin' there...

The Audacity Of Hope (Arkansas)

This was unexpected.

Hillary says, "me too."


Not only does Hillary announce with a video, just like Bronco, she even got the AP writer to include a link to her website, just like Bronco.

Notice that the video shot is not wide enough for you to see the rug? That's because Bronco Bomber pulled it out from under her on Tuesday.

I can't wait for the candidate debates! She'll win the primary, and tank in the general. It's not 1992 anymore.

Casca, I used to be optimistic about Hillary, (yes optimistic). Now, the more I think about her, I'm beggining to doubt that she can win the nomination. Bomber will be formidable, as he has the antidote for every one of her negatives. He's consistent on the war, he has no voting record to speak of, he's not from any political dynasty, he has charm, he's not perceived as "too liberal," and chicks dig him. By contrast, the nutjobs will protest hillary at every turn, she has to answer for her Iraq vote, her last name is Clinton and I think we're all tired of the Bush-->Clinton merry-g0-round, she's got two public personas: wooden and/or abrasive, no one has forgotten her socialized medicine boondoggle, and half the women in this country despise her, not to mention three fourths of the men.

If Hilary doesn't win the nomination, who does. Since I won't be blogging next year, let me make my preliminary prediction now (subject to change, of course): John Edwards - Bronco Bomber.

Bronco is the new kid in town. His bloom will fade. Next year this time, people will be saying... "What were we thinking?"

Candidates are only the faces of campaigns, like actors are to movies. The Clintons own the apparatus in the D world. Bronco aint got a snowballs chance to make it through the primary process.

This is not the BCS Championship; Casca knows what he's talking about here.

The Clinton steamroller machine will be in high gear, and all the geeks will come out of the woodwork to try to re-live the good old days.

She will be the nominee, and our anti-Hillary will be John McCain.

Or, if you will, President McCain.

McCain-Rice beats Clinton-Obama.

Any questions?

Posted by: shelly on Jan. 20, 2007

Casca, Shelly, you may be right.

the clinton machine is already up and running.

Are the American people ready for an elected president who was educated in a Madrassa as a young boy and has not been forthcoming about his Muslim heritage?

This is the question Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton’s camp is asking about Sen. Barack Obama.

An investigation of Mr. Obama by political opponents within the Democratic Party has discovered that Mr. Obama was raised as a Muslim by his stepfather in Indonesia. Sources close to the background check, which has not yet been released, said Mr. Obama, 45, spent at least four years in a so-called Madrassa, or Muslim seminary, in Indonesia.

"He was a Muslim, but he concealed it," the source said. "His opponents within the Democrats hope this will become a major issue in the campaign."

I'm not down with the McCain thang. It's still early. In my heart, I'm waiting for another guy who is tanned, rested, and ready.

Posted by: Casca on Jan. 21, 2007

Remember that taking a pasting like we just did in November does wonders for the arrogant assholes in our psrty who are looking for the perfect conservative; after they put up Hillary, everyone will opt for the the ticket that can beat the Wicked Witch of the North.

I'm here to tell you that it is McCain and Rice if we want to hold 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue for eight more years.

The tanned, rested guy is Mitt, but she beats him.

C'mon kids, it was a Nixonian reference! Who's Nixonian???

Posted by: Casca on Jan. 21, 2007

I want Walter Williams to run so I can hear him tell stories about Mrs. Williams and everything else. I don't think either cHillary or B.O. are gonna make it all the way to the White House.

That's because Janet Reno is munching the gaping, fooul, fetid ooze-crusted thing!

Children, Casca is ttrying to relate what happened in '60 for the first TV debate beteen a pale, overly made up Nixon and a tanned, rested JFK.

The TV told the story, and it was still just in black and white (for those too young to remember when we didn't have color TV, let alone HD-TV).

Nixon was totally prepared, but looked like a ghost; JFK spent the week at his sister, Pat Lawford's place, right down from where I live.

Pat and Peter lived right on Santa Monica beach, on the sand. Jack was body surfing and tanning all week long and looked like a Million Bucks.

That won the election, right there and then.

I wrote a great reply to Shelly's senior moment, but the filter won't let me post it. After ten minutes... I say fug it.

Posted by: Casca on Jan. 22, 2007

Oh, OK, the short version is that Nixon was tanned, rested and ready in 1968 when he arose from the political dead, and thumped some liberal from Minnesota. Don Hewitt was the producer of the 1960 television debate, enough said. Nixon was set up.

Posted by: Casca on Jan. 22, 2007

Nixon WAS set up, but it was the last time he let that happen. He seldom made the same mistake.

He did some great things during his term, just too bad that he was stupid about the break-in.

That was a great lesson in how not to deal with adversity for those watching.
