You are totally confusing your Hillary Haterz. Shame on you for believing what alegre writes without checking for yourself.
The person who wrote those lines is William Kristol. Click the link. See for yourself.
I am not at all surprised that a vile, bloodthirsty neocon writes something and the Clinton supporters can't even tell the difference. This is how in the tank you people are for McCain. You are doing the dirty work for the GOP. You are donating your money and effort to the GOP. You are helping the GOP retain the White House.
This is an excellent point. I think the idea of PR having significance in terms of momentum is ridiculous. The superdelegates are not going to be swayed by the "momentum" of winning a victory in a place with no votes in the general elections, no votes in Congress, no votes anywhere but the primary.
Obviously McCain is one of the people who is sensitive about going bald. It is a not insignificant number of men, if the number of expensive hair loss treatments on the market is any indication.
Chances are, when you are married to someone way older than you for a dozen years, you know if he is one of the sensitive types. When you are an attractive 38-year-old woman and your husband is 56, common sense dictates that you might be aware. Of course, she was whacked out on drugs at the time, so maybe that's what caused it.
The point stands: she didn't deserve the lashing she got, but she embarrassed him and that is why he said that to his wife, as opposed to, "Wow, that Claire Sargent is a real c-word."
Dude, I'm not the one who thought it was a joke! I thought he was being mean. There is no equivalence between being called bald and being called the c-word.
I'm only saying that he didn't drop it out of nowhere. She insulted him in front of reporters. That doesn't justify it, but it's not right to give him all the blame and ignore the fact that she provoked him, even if unintentionally.
Imagine he had said to her, "Hmm, your pantsuits are getting pretty tight these days, have you been gaining weight?" Then she says, "At least I'm not going bald, you flyboy cocksucker!" Would you say that John is totally blameless in that scenario? If not, why not the reverse?
No, I don't do it in front of anyone, but if you like I can do it in front of your children, seeing as how they enjoy a joke. I'd even be happy to call you the c-word, if you think they would like that.
If you are the kind of person who kids around in such a manner -- and it is clear that you are not -- you learn that it works only when you say something so outrageous or ridiculous that it can't possibly be true. I would never use the c-word in anger, or even as a general description of someone. I rarely say it at all, and I am a foul-mouthed bastard. If I do say it, it's because I'm being ironic.
Children, and you, aren't able to grasp that, which is why I pick my moments.
This is what my wife thought, too. I admit that I occasionally call her the c-word as a joke, and she understands that it is just a joke. But I would never do that in front of people, if for no other reason than not wanting people to think I'm serious.
Besides, you can only make fun of your spouse for things that aren't true. Cindy McCain does slather on the makeup, so that "joke" would hit too close to home. It's like making a joke about her sagging boobs or something.
Of course, she bears some blame in this, as well. Surely she knew that making fun of her husband for going bald would unman him in front of reporters and employees. Again, a little too close to home.
I cannot wait to read alegre's apology on this one.
The lesson here is not to believe what Clinton says in her stump speeches until independent confirmation is available. By extension, the same principle applies to alegre's diaries, since they are nothing more than cut-and-paste jobs from Clinton campaign press releases.
