I've been getting emails saying that Hillary's campaign isn't paying their bills.

sounds great to me.

i also like the idea of Obama/Bloomberg.
I saw that. Yeah, Al Gore would be great. I like the idea of Obama/Bloomberg. That would get the Jewish vote and maybe some Republican votes.

This pisses me off big time. She's running a negative campaign dammit!

We need a resolution on the Democratic side, and soon, before both campaigns make themselves look so stupid that neither one will have a chance in hell of winning in November.
I agree.

Chelsea Clinton, at a campagin stop at Butler University in Indiana, got asked if Lewinsky-gate hurts her mother's credibility, and she responded by telling the questioner that it was none of his business.

Thoughts?

I think it was an idiotic question to ask. I haven't been a Hillary fan for a while now, but a husband's prior infidelity should have no bearing on a wife's credibility in her profession. Her conduct and actions in that profession should.

Well, what would you say if you were point-blank publically asked to discuss your own father's marital indiscretions and what your mother's choices in responding to them ostensibly reveal about her character? Considering Chelsea's relationship to that situation, I'd say that "None of your business" was an appropriate response. Whether or not voters will see it that way is up to them.

I laughed at Sen Obama's bowling on the news. Size 13 1/2? Bowling shoes are always funny, especially big ass ones

I don't know which was funnier, that or Bush getting booed at the Nationals game. Actually that was sad.

That was sad. I wouldn't boo the man at a baseball game...unless he were pulling for the Yankees

Seriously though, as much as he angers and frustrates me, if there's one thing I like about him it's that he's a baseball fan, and sometimes you just have to put politics aside and enjoy the game. Have...oh what's it called...fun! yeah, that's it, fun! Something generally foreign to FYM.

You also have to remember that several years ago he owned the Texas Rangers, and there were some questionable moves made during his ownership...

Dragging Chelsea into it is lame.

Frankly, I don't care anymore. That's the past, his time is also up.

I'm not excusing him for his past misdeeds, i'm just saying, it's a freaking game, let's enjoy it.

Psst...irvine, mrs springsteen and others inc Mods I had nothing to do with this-IT WASN'T ME:





Hillary supporter keeps up the 'rhymes-with-witch' theme


The b-word isn't just for Saturday Night Live anymore.

A top fundraiser for Hillary Clinton has embraced the "bitch" moniker, tying it to an Elton John fundraiser for the candidate.

Heather Podesta, a prominent Washington lobbyist and wife of one of Clinton's top Pennsylvania strategists, sent out a mass email today soliciting contributions for "Elton & Hillary: One Night Only," a $1,000 per-person concert next week at Radio City Music Hall.

"Not only is this a great way to help Hillary out as she heads into the next set of primaries, it is Elton John's first solo concert in New York since 2000!" Podesta writes.

And keeping with the Elton and Hillary theme, she signs off:

"Best,

Heather Podesta
'The Bitch is Back'*"


As Podesta notes next to the asterisk, that is a well-known Elton John lyric.

But the five-letter word is also something that Clintonites have come to embrace. After Tina Fey proclaimed in a defense of Hillary on SNL's Weekend Update that "bitches get stuff done," she got a thank you call from Bill Clinton. And some Hillary loyalists have turned the phrase into a shirt, slightly modified to be more family friendly: "Monsters Get Stuff Done."
