Hillary's behind-the-scenes slime machine
Remember how we learned from a Washington Post article that it was
Hillary's campaign that spread a HuffPo article about McClurkin at the
gospel tour to all the news outlets?
Well, thanks to Salon.com, what we've suspected all along, and now know
Clitnon gang sends slime to other sites
But our larger point here isn't that the Clinton campaign's "politics of hope" argument is hypocritical -- although when Penn says that Clinton is "defining the 'politics of hope' while the others are abandoning them," it is. The larger point is that the Clinton campaign's argument is off the mark, offensive and, ultimately, unhelpful.
I was beginning to think I could be as happy with a Hillary presidency as an Obama one. She has a lot to offer that I like. But after considering the "politics of hope" stunt and its corollary elements of priming the news cycle, spinning the talking heads, etc., I have awoken from my complacent dream world. Sorry to say, she seems, in regards to the politics of cynicism, a Bush in Sheep's clothing. Damn. I though ALL of our candidates were breaths of fresh air.
what a low life
