After a year and half of campaigning, I officially hate Hillary. I am neither proud of that fact nor willing to let it change my tone, but I am done giving her the benefit of the doubt. I am done with the idea of ever voting for her for any position at any time for any reason until the day I die. I would feel dirty and less human if I cast a vote for her. The depth of my disgust is really too deep to ever impart on a blog.
Maybe when I get my radio show going that will help. I love to talk.
This morning on CBS at 7:02 eastern, I saw a woman who was clearly insane. The female equivalent of Nicholson’s Joker in Tim Burton’s Batman. Minus the make-up job and over-the-top acting. Hillary’s make-up is clearly better than Jack’s, and she is playing the role of a life-time. The acting job Hillary is pulling seems transparent to me but is clearly Oscar-caliber for many democratic voters this year.
I started off as an Obama supporter but moved to Kucinich as his platform was much closer to an America that I would love to live in, though wasn’t all that likely in the short-term. I like an underdog, so he got my support. That he was a scrappy dude and brought things up that needed discussing was enough for me. He initially got my time on the blogs and my money.
However, I always knew that I would be back to Barack as the only realistic choice for president. His history and background makes me feel he is every bit as progressive as Kucinich, but Barack knows instinctively that he can’t run that way and still expect to win. Not this year. This year he needs to tread a very fine line indeed. Angry Man of Any Color doesn’t get elected president of the United States in 2008.
That an angry Hillary has gotten as far as she has despite the utter tragedy that is her campaign team and its ham-fisted strategy is something I wonder about constantly. I amazed at the bold idiocy that somehow never leads to ruin. The things that she has gotten away with are incredible. The things her husband has gotten away with are equally without compare.
Hillary has run like a neocon (I call her a neolib, the opposite side of the same filthy, fascist coin – government of, by and for corporations) and a good portion of the Democratic Party were (and still are) completely fooled. The same way they have been fooled since 1992 when the DLC took over. All an enormous lead did for Hillary was make her loss take that much longer.
I fell in love with Philadelphia this weekend as I visited the birthplace of our nation and saw a TON of Obama support.
I sure hope Pennsylvania will put us out of Hillary’s misery today.
