Hillary Clinton fires her senior strategist. She had a senior strategist? Clinton’s ongoing campaign difficulties will delight Obamian radio host Randi Rhodes, who – as Mark Steyn writes – has lately turned against Mrs Bill:
Randi Rhodes agrees with Hillary Clinton and Geraldine Ferraro on everything – abortion, health care, climate change, you name it. Yet the first is “a f***ing whore” and the second is “David Duke in drag” merely because they disagree on which Democratic senator would make the best president. The people applying these deranged epithets to the Clintons are in large part the very same people who spent the Nineties applying equally deranged epithets to anyone who disagreed with the Clintons.
Can we hate everybody? Yes we can! Views are more positive in Iraq, according to Time’s five-year Baghdad correspondent Bobby Ghosh:
The Baghdadis caught between these extremes know that the only thing standing in the way of another sectarian conflagration is the U.S. military. This may explain why every Iraqi who offers me a view on American politics seems to be praying for a McCain victory.
UPDATE. Or, to put it another way, why every jihadist will be praying for an Obama victory.
