04/18/2008: "Hillary versus Barack"
Hillary versus Barack has moved into the final rounds with Wednesday's debate in Pennsylvania. My take: Hillary won it hands down. She knows what to do, and, given the mandate of getting elected, she'll damn well do it. Barack, on the other hand, is an eloquent lightweight, long on rhetoric and short on actual solutions. He's pleasant enough when he's not being whiny about the debates, his opponent's criticisms, or the press coverage.
The press, of course, has continued to allow McCain (Gore Vidal calls him "That little fellow from Arizona") to have a free ride, spending instead most of its time covering the Hillary/Barack pissing contest. McCain is possibly MORE incompetent than President Half-wit. When you consider his general lack of knowledge of world affairs, and, today, his assertion that the economy has actually IMPROVED under the current administration, you have to be really, really frightened over the remote chance that he could get into the White House. He could have a nice title though: "The Little Fellow from Arizona" or "The President of Perpetual War". (But he wouldn't be the first one for the latter.)
Face it, those of us with any brain cells left are the Democratic party's bitch. We'll vote for whomever they give us, because we can't take another four years of war, a growing police state, more rape of the environment, and EVEN MORE tax breaks for corporations.
Please vote for Hillary. She needs our help and we need hers.
