Time for Talk is Over – Hillary Needs to Move On
Found this video by Firedoglake over at Americablog. This woman (attending the Michigan and Florida DNC rules and regs meet-n-greet) may be a little loose at the seams, but her Ferraro talking points are all there. Must be seen to be believed.
Let it out honey, just let it out. John Avarosis says this kind of anger and disillusionment is a function of Hillary telling her supporters over and over again that she can still win. I tend to agree with him now. My favorite comment on Americablog in response to the video was,
You should have been there when she discovered there was no cream cheese for the bagels.
, which is a reference to the kinds of things discussed in a May 22, 2008 New York Times article titled As Obama Heads to Florida, Many of Its Jews Have Doubts. I have no idea if the woman above is a Jew, but the general tone of the article is this:
“The people here, liberal people, will not vote for Obama because of his attitude towards Israel,” Ms. Weitz, 83, said, lingering over brunch.
“They’re going to vote for McCain,” she said.
Ms. Grossman, 80, agreed with her friend’s conclusion, but not her reasoning.
“They’ll pick on the minister thing, they’ll pick on the wife, but the major issue is color,” she said, quietly fingering a coffee cup. Ms. Grossman said she was thinking of voting for Mr. Obama, who is leading in the delegate count for the nomination, as was Ms. Weitz.
But Ms. Grossman does not tell the neighbors. “I keep my mouth shut,” she said.
In addition to bringing to the surface a mess of misinformation and subverted racism, the article deconstructs the factual errors that surround Obama in Florida.
So their solution is to vote for McCain? If older Jews think Rev. Wright presents problems, maybe they should check out McCain’s preacher buddies, Pastors John Hagee and Rod Parsley.
From U.S. News:
The Rev. John Hagee, whose political support Sen. John McCain sought, has said that the Catholic Church is a “great whore” and that Nazi Germany “operated on God’s behalf” as part of a divine plan to drive the Jews to Israel. The Rev. Rod Parsley, whose political support McCain also sought, has described Islam as “the mouthpiece of a conspiracy of spiritual evil” and an “anti-Christ religion that intends through violence to conquer the world.”
