I had either forgotten, or missed Hillary Clinton’s suggestion that the John Doe calling himself “Barack Hussein Obama” might get assassinated on the eve of the 2008 Democratic National Convention.
Some of the other statements she made during that campaign, that Olberman attacked her for, I do remember.
I realize that this is Keith Olberman. I listened to the video. He’s the same pompous windbag I remember. He took a five-minute rant, and made it run almost 11 minutes. He continually vilified Mrs. Clinton for being “insensitive.” While it is unwittingly comical for Olberman to call anyone “insensitive,” keep in mind that the term is merely a pc racial code phrase, for being insufficiently submissive to any affirmative action group.
It’s up to you, whether you think this is worth your time. You might want to flip a coin, or just say, the hell with it. I won’t blame you, either way.
Keith Olbermann Special Comment: Clinton-Obama Assassination
Uploaded on May 23, 2008 by Anti-Conformist Politics.
Keith Olbermann delivers a special comment about Hillary Clinton and her recent reference to Robert Kennedy's assassination and the inference to why she is continuing her campaign. "My husband did not wrap up the nomination in 1992 until he won the California primary somewhere in the middle of June, right? We all remember Bobby Kennedy was assassinated in June in California. I don't understand it."
She's Sorry Again
I'm not saying she literally hopes he dies soon. (Plus, she's apologized, so case closed, right?) But Hillary didn't mean what she said this time just like she wasn't exactly shouting out to hardworking white people, and Bill didn't quite say Jesse equals Barack, and her surrogates never meant to push the whole image of him as a druggie in the 'hood, and she never meant to reanimate the whole highly racial Jeremiah Wright hoo-ha by saying—gosh darn the timing, just as things were dying down—that he woulda never been her pick for pastor. But either Hillary Clinton is one smart, savvy, and occasionally even on-message politician—in which case she is well aware of what it means to reference the possible assassination of a black leader in this country—or she isn't and doesn't. It can't be both.
No such thing as an accident
I think we know exactly what Hillary meant:
"Nice nominee you got there... sure would be a shame if anything happened to him."
Awfully big-hearted of her to be willing to stick around through August, just in case....
