Yo-Bama’s In The Vast Right Wing Conspiracy? November 16, 2007Posted by fitsnews in 2008 Presidential Primaries.
SOMETIMES WE DON’T UNDERSTAND WHAT POLITICAL PEOPLE ARE SAYING
FITSNews – November 16, 2007 – Somebody forwarded us an article this morning saying that Illinois Senator Barack Obama had become part of the vast, right-wing conspiracy against his democratic presidential rival, Hillary Clinton. Maybe it’s because we spent 10 years in South Carolina public schools, but we’ve read the story three times now and are pretty sure it’s written in a foreign language. Like insider-ese:
In the infamous Philadelphia debate, (Hillary) wanted to sound favorable to (drivers) licenses (for illegal aliens) to avoid offending Hispanics, but not endorse them. Under the full-on character assault of the debate and afterward, this straddle couldn’t be sustained. She went left and came out in favor of the licenses; then, realizing the general-election vulnerability, she reversed course again and opposed them outright (“flip-flopping cubed,” said the Chris Dodd campaign).
First of all, we had no idea a presidential debate could be “infamous,” particularly when they have like four of them every day. When we think “infamous,” we think of the infamous El Guapo, who terrorized the village of Santa Poco before three brave amigos came and taught its people to sew. Infamous is a bunch of Mexican badasses, people, not a debate watched by a bunch of virgins.
Second of all, “yawn.” We’re sure there’s some alternate geek universe where accusing somebody of “flip-flopping cubed” deserves a pat on the back, but we’ve found that posting funny articles about dolphins is infinitely more effective.
