Bill Clinton is Box Office Poison
So says Ann Coulter, whose site, along with Michelle Malkin's, is like right wing porn. I'm always looking over my shoulder whenever I visit these sites and I read their prose, wide eyed, thinking, "that's sick, there's no way someone can think like that."
But sure enough, Coulter makes an interesting point in this week's rant against the left. The Dems have long been chipping away at the pedestal they hoisted Bill Clinton on to back in 1992: there was Monica-gate, then his VP got shafted in the 2000 election, and now Hillary has been snubbed by the super delegates.
What happened to the Bill Clinton halo effect? Here's what Ann has to say:
"Ronald Reagan was so popular, he not only won a 49-state landslide re-election for himself, but he also won a symbolic third term for his boob of a vice president, George Herbert Walker Bush (who immediately blew it by breaking his own "no new taxes" pledge).
By contrast, in addition to not being able to get half the country to vote for him in two tries, Clinton's connection to any other presidential candidate spells utter doom. Both his vice president and his wife have been defeated in elections they should have won, but lost because of their unfortunate association with him. The country has spoken. It wants to be rid of the Clintons."
Argh. I hate it when that skinny wench is right.
I can't speak for the backstabbing and intrigue that inform the Democratic Party's decisions, but I'm very disappointed with their presumptive choice for President. In short, I've lost faith in the party who for the past 8 years hasn't been able to get its act together. What happened to Howard Dean? Why are we railroading Hillary? We're giving the show over to B. Hussein Obama because that's EXACTLY what those on-the-fence voters in those red states are looking for in an alternative to the Republican candidate.
While I have no qualms with McCain, I can't (contrary to what I've said in the past) bring myself to vote for a Republican President. If Obama is on the ticket, I'm going to sit this election out.
