Off of AP/Yahoo: “Clinton seeks to smooth relations with Obama“
How many times are we going to do this dance? The Clintons’ advance. The Clintons retreat. The Clintons’ advance. The Clintons’ retreat. Then you do the hokey-dokey and shenanigans fall out. It’s like the inauthenticity two-step out there. Just once I wish we lived in a world where people can be fully honest in their desires of things. Where homosexuals don’t live in the closet. Where Black folks listen to their “My Chemical Romance” CDs with the windows rolled down. Where Dick Cheney finally says to W., “Luke, I am your father.”
I wish a day would come when the Clintons could just say with naked ambition, “frankly my dear, we don’t give a fuck.” George W. doesn’t apologize for wanting to be “The Decider.” As far as I can tell neither Tom DeLay or Rush Limbaugh were born with consciouses. But Bill and Hillary are members of the Democratic Party, the party that pretends to care about things. Why, oh why couldn’t they be in the “streets will flow with the blood of the nonbelievers“ party?
Now I’m not saying Bill n’ Hill are the same as DeLay and Rush. The worst thing the Clintons did was NAFTA. Or Monica. No, no. It was NAFTA. But the worse thing Dick n’ Bush did was everything. Bill debates what the definition of is is. George has us debating whether water boarding, i.e. Water Torture, was torture. Perspective! It’s all in perspective.
That said, I really wish the Clintons didn’t have to do this giant, frustrating, circle jerk with the press in their attempt to knock Obama off his pedestal. It’s so excruciating to watch. I want Obama, just once, to say, “go fuck yourselves,” when they try to make nice with him. Not be like Charlie Brown thinking this time Hillary will let you kick that football. And while I’m not advocating that the primary should dissolve into mutually assured unelectability, I wish everyone could be themselves like they would be if it were just two white guys running.
Sarcastically speaking, it’s like the Democratic Party that we love so much is being choked to death by its own diversity! Who knew everyone would just start turning on each other? Just think, if this were a Biden versus Edwards versus Dodd campaign we’d all be paying attention to absolutely nothing.
