On the other side of the fence…

February 25, 2008

is Hillary Clinton, who is changing attitude and persona so often, she just may win the presidency of Arkham Asylum. “Am I emotional? Am I the realist? Am I the peacemaker and full of respect? Am I the angry one? Am I the realist again? Am I the latest incarnation of Dr. Who?”

Latest is her switch back to realist with an healthy dollop of sarcasm, because we all know that gets you love.

“Now I could stand up here and say, let’s get everybody together, let’s get unified the sky will open, the light will come down, celestial choirs will be singing,” she said, to a smattering of giggles. “And everyone will know we should do the right thing, and the world will be perfect.”

She added: “But I have no illusions about how hard this is going to be. You are not going to wave a magic wand and make the special interests disappear.”

This seems like a great way to earn back some of the support of the people flocking from the Clinton gulag to Camp Obama… in Bizarro World. Mock the voters and the ideals that draw them to a candidate and all will be fine. I imagine that it’s hard to run a campaign, but it must be twice hard if you’re both ingenuine and batshit insane.

    The LA Times has an interesting article on Hillary’s schizophrenia, http://www.latimes.com/news/nationworld/nation/la-na-campaign25feb25,1,3317338.story

    With her White House prospects in jeopardy, Hillary Rodham Clinton has shifted from one tactic to another in trying to overtake rival Barack Obama.

    She tried TV ads saying he ducked debates. She accused him of plagiarism. She disparaged his huge crowds. She called his attacks on her shameful and dishonest. On Sunday, Clinton turned to ridicule.

    Most baffling is the inconsistency — literally the three or four or five approaches we’ve seen, all within one week,” said Roy Behr, a California Democratic strategist not involved in the race. “This is commonly what happens to campaigns when things are not going well.”

    Yes, it looks like she’s throwing everything she has at the wall just to see what sticks. I’m in agreement with that LA Times article: this seemse to be an omen for the fall of the Clinton campaign.

    Here’s a great little clip about Clinton’s “mood shifts”, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fp_gTq9tF1M

    I put “mood shifts” in quotes as this is what Andrea the Ginormous Head Mitchell said.

    “Andrea the Ginormous Head Mitchell”
