So maybe it’s not yet time to join hands and sing “Ding dong, the witch is dead,” but man oh man you can kind of feel that day coming, can’t you? As many of you know, I’ve had some nasty run-ins with the Clintstones and I don’t exactly hold them in high regard. Frankly, I can’t stand them. And I can’t tell you how glad I was to see this mean old grimbo get her big garbage-bag-full-of-oatmeal ass spanked in Iowa last night. Unless or until Al Gore enters the race, I’m supporting Obama. The guy was amazing last night. That speech! Yes, I did recently say that Obama was “a nice guy, but a lightweight.” You know what? I was wrong. Because no lightweight could have beaten the shit out of the Clintstone political machine the way he did. Clearly Obama is not just extremely smart and a great speaker, but he knows how to run a campaign, and he knows how to stay cool, and he knows how to fight. My sense is he’s tougher than he looks, but that he downplays his toughness.
As Peggy Noonan put it in this smart essay, “He took mama to school.”
Or as readers of this blog might say, Hillary got pwned by a n00b. Amazing. And such great news for all of us. I just hope Obama can stay tough because the Clintstones are now going to unleash every low blow and dirty trick in their arsenal. Nothing, and I mean nothing, fights like a cornered Clintstone.
Meanwhile, what’s to say about Huckabee, with his corn-pone aw-shucks Gomer Pyle act and his bass playing and his self-deprecating humor? All I need to know about him is that he says he wants to take this nation back for Christ. In my book that’s it. Sorry. You’re done. Out. Gone. Bye. I mean stuff like that scares the living shit out of me. Funny thing is I’m pretty sure Jesus would hate this asshole just as much as I do.
