One candidate I am ready to commit to for the 2008 nomination is Hillary Rodham Clinton. Only the Democrats would be stupid enough to nominate such a widely dislike candidate, a fact that Karl Rove called attention to yesterday on Rush Limbaugh.
“Look, she is who she is,” Mr. Rove said on Mr. Limbaugh’s syndicated program. “There is no front-runner who has entered the primary season with negatives as high as she has in the history of modern polling.
“She’s going into the general election with, depending on what poll you look at, in the high 40s on the negative side and just below that on the positive side. And there’s nobody who has ever won the presidency who started out in that kind of position.”
(I know, I know. Citing the commie rag the New York Times. What am I thinking? Well, I heard Rove on the radio and when I googled it, this article came up, so I'm supplying the quote with source, although I consider the source to be Rush and NOT the New York Times.)
We Iowans can't stand her. Check out this excerpt from the Washington Post today about Hillary Clinton and Rudy's trips to the Iowa State Fair. One Iowans got it exactly right! The Anti-Christ!
Christie Vilsack, who with her husband, Tom, the former Iowa governor, was part of the Clinton entourage, spent much of the more than two-hour tour introducing the candidate to familiar voters. But when Vilsack tried to coax 87-year-old Roberta Hindman to come meet Clinton, the elderly woman snapped: "No way. She makes me sick." Another passerby loudly referred to Clinton as "the Antichrist," and a third man argued with Tom Vilsack about whether she would become president, telling him, "I can't stand her."
Despite the reality of the situation (which, for once, a MSM reported), Vilsack still recited his talking points, earning that Clinton campaign salary and the donations from her maxed out donors. (http://www.nctimes.com/articles/2007/07/18/news/politics/18_58_517_17_07.txt)
And Tom Vilsack, who decided not to run for president himself, said he is seeing positive signs for Clinton in the state, where she launched a television ad campaign last week. "People see her working for it," Vilsack said. "Her message is resonating with people."
EARTH TO VILSACK! PEOPLE ARE CALLING HER SATAN AND REFUSING YOUR INVITATIONS TO MEET HER BECAUSE IOWANS HATE HILLARY CLINTON!
Therefore, I endorse Hillary for the Democrat Party's nomination. She will unite the party as no GOP candidate could and ensure a Republican follows President Bush as the inhabitant of 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.
Hillary for President!
