Double-talking jive, get the money motherfucker ’cause I got no more patience

Well this is it, eh? June 3, the day of the last primaries. Obama has already won the delegate race for the nomination and we have finally reached the end of the road, right?

Very few people – including the Clinton Campaign – ever saw it going this far, but all things considered, it has been a very good primary season and when it comes down to the come down, Hillary may have actually helped Obama.

Thanks to her, he has already faced many of the bullshit character attacks, half-truths, whisper campaigns and the racism one would expect from a Republican candidate. Yet he has continued to gain popularity.

But while the campaign for the nomination has essentially been over since February, today has to be the end, right? After today she has no reason to keep going and will have to admit she lost, right?

Hell, even Bubba admitted it yesterday.

But, nope, not Hillary. Even after Obama secures the nomination tonight, Hillary will refuse to let go, clinging tenaciously to the possibility that the party Gray Beards will overturn the will of party voters and give her the nomination despite that fact that she is unlikable and unable to draw people to her campaign:

Hillary Rodham Clinton will acknowledge Tuesday night that Barack Obama has the delegates to secure the Democratic nomination, campaign sources told the Associated Press.

After the report, her campaign promptly issued a statement saying, “Senator Clinton will not concede the nomination this evening.”

Right, because even after admitting that her opponent ran a better race and secured the nomination, she, like the administration she said she wants change from, will refuse to acknowledge the facts and continue to live in her own fantasy world of lies, half truths and double speak, as so perfectly summed up by Harold “fuck the rules” Ickes:

Harold Ickes, a top campaign official, said that Clinton would not drop out of the race. Asked on MSNBC what she would say if, after primaries Tuesday in Montana and South Dakota, Obama had enough delegates to clinch the nomination, he replied: “She will say what she will say when she says it.”

Oh, that’s nice. Sounds like something Dana Perino might say, doesn’t it?

But what could Hillary possibly have to gain by staying on the track after the race is finished? Well, according to the Telegraph, It’s all about the Benjamins for Hillary, Inc.:

In a conference call with major donors this afternoon, contributors were told by Harold Ickes, a senior Clinton adviser, that she was unlikely to pull out of the race until the issue of her massive debts was resolved. The New York senator has lent her own campaign at least $11.5 million.

One source close to a major donor said: “It’s not about the vice-presidency or any other position she might get. It’s about the money – in particular the Clinton family money.” The Obama campaign might have to reach deeply into its well-stocked coffers in order to secure the full support of Mrs Clinton and her husband Bill in the November general election.

Reports are that along with the $11 mil she sunk in the campaign herself, the Clinton Campaign is $20 million to $40 million in the hole.

But while refusing to officially concede the nomination is a direct slap in the face to both the candidate and the party and the idea that she wants money instead of a position in the cabinet of on the ticket or to write a platform plank or someplace else where she could continue to fight for her message and her supporters is absolutely disgusting.

There can no longer be a doubt this is simply a grudge and she is blatantly asking for hush money and bribery and holding the party hostage until she gets her way.

And it’s proof the Clintons don’t give a shit about the party or the country.

What do they want to end this charade? Their MONEY. Not a plank in the platform or a cabinet position or anything like that. No, they want their fucking money like the fucking little rock mafia wanna-bes they are.

Fuck you, Hillary. You are a greedy, power-hungry wench and you should get dick.

Here’s what I would like to hear the Obama Campaign say regarding this:

You know what? Fuck you.

We have been nothing but polite and respectful even though it has been obvious to anyone with eyes that you haven’t had a shot since Feb.5 and you have done nothing but bitch and attack.

THEN, Saturday, even though WE HAD THE VOTES to split those Michigan delegates square down the middle, we gave you the advantage – for no reason except to be nice – and your fucking little lapdog Ickes went on the attack and said we were ‘hijacking’ delegates you never rightfully earned in the first place.

You keep parroting Republican talking points, you have slagged our ability to govern, said we can’t win and repeatedly raised the specter of assassination – all for your own glory and edification.

So Fuck You. Fuck You and your inability to manage your campaign’s finances and Fuck You for forcing the issue and continuing the campaign after you ran out of money and momentum. We don’t owe you shit. Eat your $40 million loss and like it. Want to know a secret? You’ve forgotten what it means to be humble. That’s why people don’t like you and why you lost.”

It’ll never happen, of course, but it sure is nice to think about…

  1. It looks like the Telegraph put way too much spin on the idea that Obama could tap his “well-stocked coffers” and simply write a check to Clinton from his campaign fund. And by “way too much spin,” I mean “don’t know what the hell they are talking about.”

    From Bloomberg on June 5, 2008:

    “Obama, 46, an Illinois senator, is barred by federal law from using his own treasury to pay off Clinton’s debts. He could host a fundraiser for the New York senator or ask some of his 1.5 million donors to help her out.”

    and it turns out that Clinton’s only real money trouble is the amount she lent herself:

    “Unlike the rules for her personal loan, Clinton can tap her Senate campaign account to pay off the vendor debts. While the account had $277,480 as of March 31, she could ask the donors who gave her $23 million for the general election if they would be willing to re-designate that money for her 2012 Senate re- election campaign. That would give her more than enough cash to repay everyone but herself.”
