I put Middle Earth Journal in hiatus in May of 2008 and moved to Newshoggers.
I temporarily reopened Middle Earth Journal when Newshoggers shut it's doors but I was invited to Participate at The Moderate Voice so Middle Earth Journal is once again in hiatus.

Too Stupid to be President

The Quote of the Day comes from John Cole:
I willingly concede that should we have a national crisis in which the President is faced with the threat of hundreds of reporters questioning his/her use of lapel pins, then Hillary is who I want to confront that problem.

For every other crisis, I choose Obama. Hillary is turning into a Saturday Night Live routine.
Now even John McCain realized early on that if he was to win the nomination he had to sell his soul and pander to the wingnut base. But not Hillary Clinton:
In a weird mirror image of last Friday's "cling" revelation — though perhaps without the same general election implications — this Friday afternoon brings a Huffington Post tape reportedly from a closed-door Hillary fundraiser in which Clinton scorns her opponent's supporters — the liberal activists who make up a pillar of the Democratic Party:
"MoveOn.org endorsed [Obama] — which is like a gusher of money that never seems to slow down," Clinton said to a meeting of donors. "We have been less successful in caucuses because it brings out the activist base of the Democratic Party. MoveOn didn't even want us to go into Afghanistan. I mean, that's what we're dealing with. And you know they turn out in great numbers. And they are very driven by their view of our positions, and it's primarily national security and foreign policy that drives them. I don't agree with them. They know I don't agree with them. So they flood into these caucuses and dominate them and really intimidate people who actually show up to support me."
Not only was it stupid she was lying once again. MoveOn as an organization never opposed the the war in Afghanistan. If she doesn't agree with a majority of the Democrats perhaps she should be running for the nomination as something other than a Democrat.

And this is what set John Cole off.

I am ashamed I actually supported this woman until January even though I made it clear I really didn't like her. F*#k Hillary Clinton and the DLC - I want real change.
