If Hillary is elected president, we'll have a four-year disaster, with Republicans ferociously opposing her, followed by Republicans zooming back into power, as we did in 1980 and 1994, and 2000. (I also predict more Oval Office incidents with female interns.) If McCain is elected president, we'll have a four-year disaster, with the Republicans in Congress co-opted by "our" president, followed by 30 years of Democratic rule.Remember, this is the bastion of reasoned analysis who ran into trouble when she said in a speech: "I was going to have a few comments on the other Democratic presidential candidate, John Edwards, but it turns out that you have to go into rehab if you use the word 'faggot,' so I'm - so, kind of at an impasse, can't really talk about Edwards, so I think I'll just conclude here and take your questions." And then the New York Times reported that she responded, in an e-mail, "C'mon, it was a joke. I would never insult gays by suggesting that they are like John Edwards. That would be mean." Fun gal. I love the photo with the CNN story, which inspires me to a similar level of questioning authority, like, "Hey Ann, how's the anorexia going? Too busy to dye those roots, I see. but really, the decision to tattoo a buttload of mascara onto your face might have been a mistake."
On a less insane front, here's the last paragraph of today's ElectoralVote.com:
Time Magazine has published a poll showing that Barack Obama would beat John McCain 48% to 41% while Hillary Clinton would deadlock McCain at 46% each. The difference is that with Obama in the race, the independents go for him; without Obama they go for McCain. As the Democratic race moves forward, expect to hear Obama talking about electability a lot.
