Beware the Ides of June
May 23, 2008 2 Comments
well, if we want to give her the benefit of the doubt, we could say Hillary was just thinking about the month of June and how the nomination isn’t always wrapped up by then.
The video is running slow right now, probably because it recently went up on Wonkette, but even in its stuttered form, it really emphasizes the question of whether this is somebody we want to represent the United States as our President. Her demeanor is unsettling, and to describe it as delusional haughtiness just doesn’t seem like enough.
Towards the end of the video, Hillary says she finds it curious that so many want her to drop out, but she doesn’t want to attribute motives to anyone as to why they would say such a thing. Then she laughs at her own joke. It is a funny thing for her to say, I’ll grant her that. That she can’t tell this ridiculous bold-faced lie with a straight face seems like the more amusing part of it.
But she has “apologized,” apparently because she didn’t realize that referencing the assassination of Robert Kennedy would be really offensive, and she regrets that she doesn’t have anything better to offer the country when it comes to explaining why her debt-ridden campaign continues to lurch forward. something like that.
