She could always quit.
Well, with George Romero being the shadow Zombie Campaign Manager for the undead Hillary, we know that her regeneration powers are unlimited.
She encounters the king of the Undead, John McCain, who will mop the mauseoleum floor with her.
Those are all better analogies than saying HRC is in any way presidential.
Actually it was Hillary's aides that called her the Terminator. Dowd cites them.
I like to call her the Energizer Bunny. She just keeps banging that drum and you want to throw things at her, cause it accomplishes nothing, other than making it noisy as heck.
Let me see if I can think of a few things to call Hillary:
Former Presidential Candidate
Dowd compares Clinton to the Terminator:
"The Clintons run for office... it's what they do... it's all they do!!!!!"
Yep, time for Hil to count the votes, and then politely hang it up. Time's up.
Anything else she might do from here on out only enhances McCain's odds of victory in November.
ECB wouldnt have anything to talk about today if Dowd wasnt writing.
I'VE HAD A HORRIBLE VISION of the US Supreme Court deciding who gets the nomination after the Democratic National Convention ends amidst allegations and controversy.
I actually think it's a pretty good analogy.
you do realize you're writing about how boring, predictable, and repetitive maureen dowd has become for like the 5th or 6th time this year, right?
Yet Maureen Dowd never writes about how boring, predictable, and repetitive ECB has become.
Who has the moral high-ground, here?
@13 - oh, snap!
Thread over. Napolean has hit this one out of the ballpark.
Yeah, it's hard to come up with new names to call someone who is behaving like a complete piece of shit.
In order of offensiveness:
1. Bill's disparagement of Obama's patriotism
2. The Bosnia visit "under fire"
3. The 3 AM commercial
4. Hillary praising McCain
5. Geraldine Ferraro
6. Bill dismissing Obama as "Jesse Jackson" (who never held elective office) in S.C.
7. The Hillary Florida/Michigan switcheroo
8. That bald-headed freak all over TV today talking like a Mafiosi saying Richardson is being 'unloyal' to the Clintons.
I supported Hillary in December, thinking Obama didn't have a chance. Since, Obama has proved he has more than a chance, a better chance by far than Hillary, and her campaign has shown its mendacity again and again.
How can anyone support the Clinton campaign at this point unless they are a Rushhead hoping to win McCain the presidency?
heh heh heh
THE sign that this campaign gone one too long is that the person with the fewest votes, fewest delegates who has lost the majority of the contests has not conceded yet. fuck clinton for this destructive bullshit.
for someone who regularly "hils" and "modo", you are in no position to make fun of someone else's nickname for a politician.
Does the Stranger pay you by the whiny word?
Seriously, ErBar? You still flogging the Clintons? That's all you got?
Erica's right. Maureen Dowd is a Judas to her gender.
Frankly, I think Dowd is subtly plagiarizing another self-hating woman columnist, one Peggy Noonan:
One part of the Clinton mystique maintains: Deep down journalists think she's a political Rasputin who will not be dispatched. Prince Yusupov served him cupcakes laced with cyanide, emptied a revolver, clubbed him, tied him up and threw him in a frozen river. When he floated to the surface they found he'd tried to claw his way from under the ice. That is how reporters see Hillary.
Frankly, I think this comparison is grossly unfair to Hillary. I mean, for God's sake, Rasputin proved not to be invincible after all.
Your right. MoDo should just call HRC what I do: a liar.
None of these guys dropped out before the convention in July of 1960. Sorry to belabor the obvious, but some of you are due to collect a clue.
Four weeks before the Los Angeles convention, the battle for the Democratic presidential nomination seemed to go underground as the contenders, their aides and strategists were busier than an ant colony in their quests for delegates and deals. TIME correspondents, checking the politicians and delegates across the nation, found Jack Kennedy still well ahead despite a psychological post-summit uneasiness about his youth and lack of diplomatic experience, counted up a minimum 620 first-ballot votes for Kennedy. (Needed to win: 761.) In second place was Lyndon Johnson, with 410½ votes, grounded on the rock of the Solid South. Stuart Symington (104½ votes), Adlai Stevenson (41) and Hubert Humphrey (51½) trailed. If the voting goes into a second ballot, Kennedy's indicated strength should carry him over the finish line with 765½ votes. But if the Kennedy bandwagon should be wrecked, Stuart Symington, with widely scattered support all over the nation, probably stands to gain the most.
