I firmly believe a real part of the reason why Hillary Clinton is not the democratic nominee today is because people were tired of the Clinton era politics. The politics of whine and blame had tested our patience to the limits and we wanted something fresh. And along comes Barack Obama, the articulate one with a message of hope and change and that telling us he was the post-partisan, post-racial uniter. Cool. Except for now that he wrapped up the democratic nomination he can turn into the typical Daley attack machine partisan democratic politician he has always been.
For such an educated and alleged articulate man (I am still looking for that guy!), he sure makes some real stupid moves ! He is so nuanced and has to explain himself so much, he makes John Kerry look like the common man from Appalachia . Everytime I have to hear him stammer and stutter to explain away what he just said I think, here we go again! Another wimp who wants to whine his way to the white house.. So now we are charged with being delusional about making stuff up about his pig remark. Oh us stupid folk!
But oh no, what is this? Lo and behold- In checking the The Democratic Blog we find a post entitled " Mc Cains selection of Palin is Lipstick on a Pig"
Here is the url and the tags for the post so you can see for yourself:

"Palin does not change one single thing of what the Republicans are offering which is four more years of George Bush. All that McCain did was to put lipstick on the Pig (the Bush Administration whose failed strategies have wrecked our nation). Nothing has changed except for an exciting and sexy dash of lipstick to freshen up their tired old face of more of the same.
The same people who do not like the Bush Administration for what it has done to this nation are not going to be fooled by the lipstick on the pig. And it they think that the American public are so stupid that they will rush over now and kiss their pig of a platform because it is wearing a fresh touch of lipstick, well I think they will be surprised. Economically, the majority of Americans are at the breaking point. Most American families literally cannot stand another four more years of the same.
That is exactly why we had so many Republicans giving testimony at our convention as to why they were crossing over. The message was the same: They simply could no longer afford to vote Republican. Palin does not change that message. She is more of the same.
Judging from McCains choice, he seems to think that our Democratic Campaign is built on the purpose of electing the first black man as President. That is not, nor has it ever been the purpose of the Barack Obama campaign.
The purpose and message of Barack Obama's campaign has always been CHANGE and it remains so--to change this country before conservatives totally destroy it with their tax breaks for the wealthy and for coporate America; to rebuild this nation by creating new jobs and restoring worldwide respect for our nation; to unite our country in a common purpose; to end our reliance on fossil fuel in the next 10 years--not to drill for more.
Palin changes nothing in terms of what the Republicans are offering. They are still offering a ticket of more of the same: more tax breaks for the weathy, more disdain for global warming, more war, more disregard for rebuilding our educational system in America, more continued privatization of our nation.
WE NEED TO REMEMBER AND NOT BE THROWN OFF OUR MESSAGE. THE REASON THE DEMOCRATS HAVE SUCH SWELLING SUPPORT IS BECAUSE OF ECONOMICS AND THE WAR IN IRAQ--Palin represent more of the same. She changes nothing.
In a way a Palin is a good thing because now we can focus on the real issues. The REAL issues for Americans do not include whether we elect the first black president of our nation or whether we elect the first woman vice president .
AMERICANS HAVE A CLEAR CHOICE: CHANGE OR MORE OF THE SAME.
Demorats offer change.
Republicans offer more of the same. Palin is a red herring, lipstick on the Republican pig to distract Americans from the real issue that under the leadership of the Republicans the last 8 years, our country is falling apart.
Both Palin and McCain think that Americans are whiners. What do you think? Are you a whiner? Do you want more of the same? If you don't, then get out and register at least 5 people and tell them why they should vote a straight Democratic ticket this year
Again, Barack Obama's lack of forthrightness and lawyer-like nuances are a bit too elitist for Main Street America.
On main street, we call a lie a lie. And being lied to makes us typical Americans real bitter at the government that lies to us..
