More Kool-Aid, Vicar?
Over at The Obama 527 Formerly Known As The Kos Community, Kid Oakland -- author of the world's best Obama fluff post, on the "casual poetry" of the Obama campaign, example of such here -- has gone off the deep end again. I excerpt the last portion of his bathetic screed, because it's too, too funny:
The Clintons have no compunction about ripping the Democratic party apart and destroying the career of Barack Obama if it means they might yet win.
Oakland's stamping his feet and threatening to hold his breath until his face turns blue because somebody dared to call bullshit on Barry. In an election campaign. The idea!
Grow up, say I.
And am I the only one who finds it odd that Oakland's peroration gives equal weight to both "the Democratic Party" and "the career of Barack Obama"?
I mean, come on, Obama's what, 42? His career isn't going to be destroyed and in any case, he'll make plenty of money from book deals and going on Oprah (if her ratings rebound from the hit she took when she endorsed him, that is.)
Grow up, Kid. Obama's career is in no danger at all.
So what's going on here?
Jobs for the boys?
Anyhow, if there's a charge that is career destroying in American politics, it's the charge of racism, which the Obama campaign has cheerfully and freely deployed against not only the Clintons, but Hillary's supporters as well. (The most vile forms of misogny have also been cheerfully and freely deployed against Clinton by the Obama campaign, and if I have anything to do with it, that will be career destroying. As indeed it ought to be.)
Grow up, kid. Look in the mirror.
NOTE Of course, to this Hillary supporter, Oakland's latest trek to the fainting couch is nothing but good news, since it means that the Obama campaign hasn't put Obama's insults to small towns behind them, or managed to clean up the latest steaming load from the Unity Pony. Good luck with that.
