For Those Who Think JOSH is Being a “Sore Winner”…

posted by on January 8 at 20:20 PM

Here’s Melissa McEwan’s awesome response to tonight’s Hillary upset:

Don't think that those idiots with the signs didn't have something to do with her winning in NH, especially given the reversal in gender votes from Iowa. Women gave Hil this victory, and I think it's safe to say that things like this and the tears pushed her over the top the last 24 hours.

Turns out those "Iron My Shirt" guys were a radio shock jock prank, incidentally.

I don't know. There's no need to be so hysterical is there? Ladies, ladies, ladies.

"sore winner"?

Last I heard, McEwan was still an Edwards blogger (though no longer officially associated with the campaign.

Why are you so feisty all of the time? Who cares what Josh thinks?

And since when is it necessary for the Slog to provide non-stop coverage of the primaries? There's like 600 hundred other websites that offer the same coverage, not to mention the Times and the PI.

I know it says "Seattle's only newspaper" at the top of the page, but you know that's a joke, right?

Sticking it to those "Iron My Shirt" toilet brushes isn't sore winning, it's common sense.

@5 judging by the very large number of posts to the various threads, it seems like a pretty good business strategy to me. Got scores of eyes --- even yours -- clocking in. Maybe you're not a good business planner?

@7 You're right, the slog is all about the business of click-bait these days.

I used to come here to be entertained and escape dreary news blogs, but apparently those days are over.

@4, I think Edwards' sexist comments to Clinton re: the tears pissed her off.

here we are now, entertain us.

OMG, it's sewwww much fun playing newspaper! Like, it's like COLLEGE or something!

"Why are you so feisty all the time".

What the hell is with all the sexist bullshit on Slog lately? And why the hell are Slog commenters so quick to call ECB a screeching harpy when she brings up anything even remotely connected to feminism or HRC?

Sexism? Where? (And, oh, Erica, don't forget the brownies.)

It's reasonable to be suspicious about stunts like that, because Hillary's been known to plant people in the audience before to make her look good:

@ 15~ quit yer whingin' and go bake some cookies.

@13 - you must be new here.

Posted by erica "coulter" barnett | January 9, 2008 9:39 AM

Julie has a good point @13. But the SLOG is a strange animal.

The reality is we all read ECB's posts, so she's doing something right.
