I certainly don't disagree with that - Lunsford is a MAJOR improvement over McConnell in every respect. All I'm saying is that it's probably not the best idea to count on Lunsford as part of a 60 member coalition to override controversial progressive vetoes or block filibusters.
No, I am not, but the kind of vile filth that the Clinton Smear Machine has been spewing on here for months will be clearly against the guidelines of this site as soon as the nomination is settled. We just have to run out the clock on the alegrebots. They'll be gone soon enough.
I'm really not so concerned about Hillary. What she said was inappropriate, but it doesn't bother me that much. The problem I have is with the Clinton Smear Machine trolls like linfar and TexasDarlin and alegre that are trying to turn this back on Obama and his supporters when it's clearly entirely Hillary's fault she is in hot water over this. I will continue to attack them for their arrogance. Their insinuation that Obama somehow made her say what she did or even stoked the fire by saying something as mild as "it's unfortunate she said that" or, even more arrogant, that he should have to actively defend her for her statement that she should stay in the race in case he gets assassinated is just crazy (and, in fact, the Obama campaign went beyond what they were morally required to in defense of her when Rice released a statement saying "we take her at her word"...). These people are clearly just trolls and should be treated as such. For the normal everyday Clinton backers that feel like she made a misstatement but it's really not a big deal, don't worry, I'm with you, too. Keith Olbermann's rant was entertaining, but that's what he does - entertain, and it was clearly over the top in terms of the reality of the situation.
This is incredible. You act as if this whole thing was manufactured by Obama or anyone connected with his campaign. In fact, the official statement of the campaign cam AFTER the media picked up the story and was "it was unfortunate that she said that". Wow, what a scathing attack!!! And then later after Hillary's "apology", they said they would take Clinton at her word that she didn't mean it. My God!!!! Twist the knife harder why don't you!!!!! That's completely unfair of them to imply that they would take her at her word. How dare they?
This "controversy" is 100% Hillary's own doing, and this diary is yet another pathetic garbage hit piece from the vile Clinton Smear Machine. Thank God it's all coming to an end soon. Once the primary process is over, the pathetic smear machiners will be banned practically as soon as garbage like this is posted if they keep up with the hateful smear pieces on the Dem nominee.
I respect that you're going to vote Dem in the fall no matter who the nominee is, and I respect that you're going to fight for Hillary until the second she stops battling the windmills, but this is a real stretch to make an issue over.
