Move On, indeed.

Primary story of the day: Clinton trash talking

In some ways I feel like I need a Tumblr to post about these thing the way I want to. A quick hit. On the other hand I wonder if I need to post, all over the internet, the blog posts that anyone else could read on their own without me directing them there. Still, this one is pretty interesting. Clinton gave Obama shit for being overly liberal and elite (elitism being the main charge, but too liberal being the submerged innuendo, because you know all those anti-gun gay San Francisco atheists who go to Obama fundraisers), and now she is rejecting MoveOn for being too liberal, and all I can think is that this is all a good sign. Not for the election, but for the truth in the idea that Obama is the candidate working to change up the stereotypes and privileges and old way of doing politics. At least, that is one way of looking at it.

I'm tired of hearing Hillary Clinton sound like a Republican talk show host. Well, a mild one.

Not long now until we see how all this shit plays out in a real election. Crossing my fingers.

SOmeone on the radio the other day was saying that Obama being labeled elitist, is like calling him "uppity"
I agree.
I'm ready for this stuff to be over.
