*This message is not intended for humans
After nearly six straight months of this, I have had enough. Stop wasting my time.
First of all, I owe you NOTHING. I do not have to answer your questions, nor do I have to explain to you why I am supporting Hillary Clinton.
I tried constructive engagement, but that's really just a game of blogospheric whack-a-mole. It's like Groundhog Day, arguing the same arguments over and over.
I know everything I need to know (and then some) about Hillary Clinton. Nothing you can say will persuade me that she's evil. She is not the Antichrist, nor is she married to him. Read below the fold...

He's regaining his sanity, get this man more Kool-aid, Stat!:
While the Daily Kos diary in question is specifically arguing that the Cooper plan was great (although that is implied), it does take as its main point that health care reform failed in 1993-1994 because Democrats, specifically Hillary Clinton, weren't nice enough to conservatives. If only Hillary Clinton had been nicer to conservatives, then we could have had great health care plans like Jim Cooper's. Hell, Jim Cooper himself says so. And look, David Brooks agrees, so it much be right. Read below the fold...

Hullabaloo is losing it's collective mind. Today we see tristero going gaga over D-Day's "The Obama Party" post from yesterday:
Win or lose, for good or otherwise, it really appears that Obama is in a position to renovate the Democratic party. As dday mentions, this does not necessarily mean that that reform will make the party more conducive to liberal and progressive ideas. As I see it, however, by displacing the sclerotic leaders who managed, incredibly, to make both the 2004 election and the 2000 race so close that a candidate as clearly awful as Bush could steal the presidency (once if not twice), there are potential opportunities for liberals.

Susan Faludi thinks men are warming to Hillary because she's mean and nasty.
Pundits have been quick to attribute the erosion in Barack Obama’s white male support to a newfound racism. What they have failed to consider is the degree to which white male voters witnessing Senator Clinton’s metamorphosis are being forced to rethink precepts they’ve long held about women in American politics.

Some Obama supporters have truly entered a state that is referred to in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders IV (DSM-IV) as "Bat-shit Crazy."

Not just that, but it's high on my list. We need to fix a broken system.
Some required fixes:
1. End the caucuses. Secret ballot primaries only.
2. Regional primaries. Five of them, in rotation, beginning in February and ending in June. Iowa and New Hampshire can get in line with everyone else.
3. Closed primaries. Democrats should select our nominee.
4. Select the nominee by popular vote. Delegates should be used for other intra-party buisness at the convention, but let the voters select the nominee.
5. Campaign finance reform. The winner should not be selected based on who can raise the most obscene amount of money. Read below the fold...

I was reading one too many references to "Archie Bunkers" when it occurred to me that Archie is getting a bad rap.
Yeah, Archie was a bigot in 1971 when "All in the Family" went on the air, but he changed over the years.

John Cole has clearly OD'd on kool-aid:
Where do these wingnuts come up with this perception? I see the same sort of crap from the Hillary Clinton blogs and the pro-Clinton commenters- this notion that Obama supporters are somehow unaware that Barack Obama is GASP a politician.
He is a United States Senator. He is running for the highest political office in the land. He is a politician. We are aware of this. Trying to change the tone and tenor in Washington as well as how politics is conducted is not apolitical, and we are all aware of this. What we reject is the current status of our politics, not the notion of politics. What we see in Obama is a chance to change the nature of our current political mess. Read below the fold...

Last year Rolling Stone magazine published an article about Barack Obama called "Destiny's Child" by Ben Wallace-Wells. The story deserves a second look, because at the time Obama was a virtual unknown to most of the public.
The piece begins with Obama's arrival in Washington D.C., then shifts to his meteoric rise in the Democratic party: Read below the fold...

Once again we are presented with evidence that Barack Obama is not the special and transformational figure he is advertised to be. Christi Parsons tells the tale:
Joining Chelsea Clinton and other women leaders to campaign for Hillary Clinton today is Alice Palmer, the former state senator who picked Obama to be her successor back in the mid-90s. When she tried to reclaim her spot, though, Obama got her booted from the ballot.
For those of you who aren't familar with Ms. Palmer's story, it is detailed in the Chicago Tribune: Read below the fold...
