Jeffrey Toobin -- wonderful legal analyst but...
what the hell is he doing on my TeeVee on CNN telling me that Hillary should concede right now? Toobin knows legal issues like no one else but he has literally no idea about political campaigns. Holy cow.
And anytime I'm hearing discussions about her "tone" in a speech, I get annoyed. Anytime I hear "tone" mentioned at all in any way, I get annoyed. "Tone" discussions are almost always bullshit in my view.
How many times have you sent someone an e-mail that was carefully crafted and they complain about the "tone?" We've all had that kind of experience. That sort of argument is almost inherently emotional, not logical or analytical.
As James Carville said, she'll be making an announcement in the coming days. Just cool your heels, folks. You're not going to get instantaneous gratification. Not everything works that way.
Finally, why in the world does she have to concede tonight?
I get so damned tired of these guys trying to inject their emotional viewpoints into the coverage.
And, btw, on another note, wasn't McCain's speech the saddest thing you've ever seen?
Whatever you think of Obama, he's got 20,000 people cheering and Hillary's got thousands listening -- and he's got a couple of hundred. Pathetic.
That's all I can think to say.
UPDATE I like what Obama is saying. It's a magnanimous speech. And the crowd response is good, too.
I'm going to go listen to Obama's speech now.
UPDATE 2 And meanwhile, in the bizarre alternate universe that is DailyKos these days, it's all an exercise in hostage-taking.
Wow, I'm really embarrassed for Markos these days.
And I used to be one of the folks listed on his blogroll (although the blog name is misspelled) when he got started. I still haven't understood why he dropped me from the blogroll -- with no explanation -- in July of 2003.
