Commentary of the Day

Overheard at that other VC:

I am surprised the headline didn't say:

GRIM MILESTONE: Thomas' Silence Reaches Two Year Mark

And apropos of observations the Editorial Staff made this morning about a certain candidate planning to fight the War on Terriers Terror with Hope, perhaps that shouldn't come as any great surprise when you campaign based on your sex appeal:

I just heard a funny remark on PBS. Not sure who made it. “Hillary’s conducting a job interview. Obama’s on a date.” The whole sex thing is being turned upside down, as is the race thing, where a candidate’s charm is magnified by a matter of race that would once have been a great hindrance, and a woman who has spent her adult life in her husband’s shadow is seen the the more experienced. So maybe the Dems are doing all of us a service this time around, as a sort of rinse cycle, getting a lot of these issues out of everyone’s system. So the next time women and/or blacks run, maybe it won’t be that big a deal and we can focus on whether, other things being equal, they will actually make good presidents or not without the accusations of sexism and racism. We’re part of the way there, but not quite, and hopefully by November people will have figured out they need to look at who might actually make the best leader at this critical time in our history.

Breaking news from the campaign cul de sac:
"Clinton Offers Child Poverty Plan"

HA! As we say in Obama Nation "Big New'in Deal!" Child Poverty's nothing. Obama's offering a National Poverty Plan; one that will ensure that every American man, woman, AND child has a chance to acheive and sustain their own personal poverty!

No wonder she's getting her fanny tanned.

I can think of a number of people that I wish would take an oath of silence...
