It seems to be all but official now – the Clinton campaign is going to use what HuffPo calls the “nuclear option” and will try to reinstate Florida’s and Michigan’s delegates. If there was ever any doubt that Hillary would do whatever it takes to win it is now settled.
She has drank beer with the dirty, called her opponent (who was *not* born into money) an elitist, lied about snipers, threatened to nuke Iran, promised a gas-tax holiday that no sane person thinks would do anything positive and now she has thrown down the gauntlet and threatens to tear the party in half over a procedural vote that will destroy any goodwill that might have come out of a more positive campaign. If successful, it might be enough to put her in the seat at the top of the smoking ruins of her party, but if not, her plaintive whine about “the residents of Michigan and Florida not getting the vote” will suck the wind of the respective state organizing committees, making the Republicans job easier in two states that the Dems really need to win in November.
The next time you see John McCain’s shit-eating grin you’ll know the truth – John Stewart was right, he’s spending his evenings soaking his aching balls in a bowl of Howard Dean’s chilled tears.
