THAT was excruciating. NOT a good way to wake up.

This combined so many of my favorite things: elements of marching band, dance music, small town America. And yet. . . and yet. . .

Why was Josh Feit fired from The Stranger?

You're a moron, C'mon.

The irony free mincing of that colorful fella around the gym has totally convinced me that Hilary is the one to root for. I love the drama, the dramatic narrative of this video made by small town, hard working, white folk, confronted with a problem, and the marching that resulted! All the bright, smiling, sincere faces of the children in this celebration of life called a video has renewed my love for humanity. Seriously, Thank You Hillary Clinton!!!!!!!!!

What State would this not give to McCain?

I think that there's enough of these things to have their own mini film festival.

I have to admit, though, that sometimes when I read a story about Hillary, I get that "Hill-ar-y for you and me!" song stuck in my head.

Gawd damn, boyee.

I mean, I admit, I have this thing against denigrating something as being "gay" or "faggy". But I'm hard-pressed for adjectives here.

Jeezus Beezus. I mean, the only thing I learned from that is that I should never play a YouTube video posted at Slog.

This is long. What is the time index of the part that is worth looking at?

The running theme here is "We need a woman in the White House". As if Hillary is behind in the delegate race because of sexism, as she and many of her supporters are claiming. News flash: a lot of us Obamaniacs here in Washington State voted for the current governor and both senators, all of whom are women. If any of them decide to run for president later they would likely have my vote. I voted for Geraldine Ferraro for VP in 1984 (although I am not proud of that after her recent comments) and several other female candidates here and in my pre-Seattle district back east.

There will be a woman president someday. It will happen within my lifetime, and I am older than many of you. But it won't be Hillary. I will vote for her against McCain this November if she ends up as the candidate, but at this point it would take a miracle on the order of loaves and fishes for that to happen. Hillary is losing because of the way in which she conducted her campaign, not because of her gender.

That was a cruel and unconvincing parody of grass roots Clinton supporters. Surely to God?

C'mon @4,

Josh Feit was fired from The Stranger because he started corroborating his facts and taking grammar lessons. Suddenly, he no longer fit the suit, and there was no room for him at the inn.

If Giant White Foamcore Boards with Times-Roman-Bold Lettering isn't a symbol of all that went wrong with the Clinton Campaign, I don't know what is...

Hillary needs to denounce and reject that video. She needs to do it now, or be deported.

what's a death rattle?

We're white boys and we take no crap
When we deliver our white boy rap.

She's got the most tragic supporters ever.

I foolishly watched this video again. I thought maybe I had been to judgemental about the whole HC effort. Now I just want George to tell me about the rabbits again.

Posted by Zander | May 31, 2008 9:44 PM

@20: Tell me again, George! Tell me how it's gonna be when Hillary gets the nomination and we get to squeeze Barack Obama really hard...

After watching this, I want to suggest changing your newspaper's name from "The Stranger" to "The Strangest."

Posted by Ivan | June 1, 2008 7:49 AM

Strange video, but that singer is pretty hot.
