Hill-bullies May Bring US Four More Years of GOP Rule
Hill-bullies May Bring US Four More Years of GOP Rule --The Rec Report --By Michael Rectenwald 08 Mar 2007

Hillary Clinton is the person that everyone-from various political positions-loves to hate. Of course, she's the favorite nemesis of the far-right pundit- and blogosphere. Check your cable listings; Foxy News (notice the array of neo-Nazi-card-carrying blondes fawning over O'Reilly and Hannity) celebrates a round-the-clock Hill-bashing from now until Election Day in 2008, if she gets that far. The Hillary-haters on rightwing media are so vehement they need napkins for the foam frothing from their mouths. Rush Limbaugh has a special spittoon installed. The microphone is often replaced after sounds become inaudible.

But the Hill-bullies are not exclusive to Faux and Raunch. Chris Matthews, the otherwise floundering middleweight chameleon, has a special, heavyweight hankering for Hillary hate. His animus appears to be especially personal, as if she's somehow slighted him, or refused him a date. He misses no opportunity to scorn her smile, ridicule her delivery, or sneer at the color of her dress. He spares nary a minute bolstering any opponent she might have, be he Obama, Edwards or even a Republican. He's like the DC sniper, lying in wait, always on the hunt for Hillary. His guests try to change the subject, embarrassed for his custom-fetishized caviling.

<snip>

...(I)f we continue to join in all those rein-in-Hillary games of the right, we might just end up with Rudolph or Huckabee.

2. If Hillary gets the nom ( I don't think she'll get past the first 5 primaries)
and if wins the general election, limpballs and o'liely will both make a bigger fortune than either bastard ever dreamed possible. No
other candidate promises more personal wealth to them, coulter, hannity...

4. War, Torture, Outsourcing....
From a *Democrat*?

I think not. Not if I can help it.

Unless the Democrats take back the Democratic Party, all is lost.

7. Nobody's picking on Hillary. It's just that there are stronger candidates
in the Democratic primary.

9. Remember the debates on her clothing, cleavage, hair, pearls and diamonds?
I disagree that, 'nobody's picking on Hillary.'
Dead Thompson stands for abso-f*ckinglutely nothing but a vague Reichwing Ray-gun-esque police state, and no one talks about his clothing, cleavage, hair, pearls and diamonds.
