My call aka In my opinion.

Hillary Clinton = Tonya Harding.

Putting her thugs to work to try and eliminate strong rivals BEFORE the competition because she doesn't have the talent and confidence to compete fairly alongside them.

1. BEFORE and THUGS are the words
BEFORE:I remember some earlier discussion about this, but forget what people concluded: does it bother you that the garden view from her house was dressed in summer /September (at latest) leafy green?

THUGS: all of them

3. How'd that work out for Tonya anyway?
:rofl: I can see it now, in a couple of years HRC will be reduced to doing celebrity boxing matches with Britney Spears.

5. it's funny how the media darlings seem to peter out
as time goes on. There's such a disconnect between Washington pundits and the rest of us that I'm not too worried about Hillary. She gets the press coverage and rates higher in the polls as a result, that's all.

The media treats JK like a disease, yet he's the one most qualified to lead the country. :shrug:

7. I heard Gloria Borger on Reliable Sources this morning,
dismissing any idea that Hillary would engage in such low tactics - and so early? Pish tosh.

http://transcripts.cnn.com/TRANSCRIPTS/0701/21/rs.01.html

KURTZ: Are some conservative journalists smearing Barack Obama? "Insight" magazine, owned by "The Washington Times," said last week that Obama was educated in a Muslim school called a madrassa and has not been forthcoming about his Muslim heritage.

First, Obama is a Christian. Second, he was 6 years old at the time. More important, he writes in his autobiography that he spent two years at a Muslim school in Indonesia. But here's where it gets interesting.

"Insight" magazine claims without citing evidence that Hillary Clinton's camp is spreading these stories. FOX News jumped on the subject, with morning show host Steve Doocy saying that madrassas teach hate -- students to hate the West, that is, and questioning whether that was the curriculum 40 years ago when little Barack was there.

FOX anchor John Gibson picked up the Hillary angle.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

JOHN GIBSON, FOX NEWS: The gloves are off. Hillary Clinton reported to be already digging up the dirt on Barack Obama. The New York senator has reportedly outed Obama's madrassa past.

(END VIDEO CLIP)...

...KURTZ: Gloria Borger, on that John Gibson show on FOX News, former Bush spokesman Terry Holt said this could be a despicable act by an absolutely ruthless Clinton political machine if it was true. And he said if it's not true, Hillary should disavow it.

Is that a responsible commentary?

BORGER: No. I think, look, the easiest thing to do is say that the Hillary Clinton campaign is spreading this about Barack Obama, which is, you know, ridiculous.

None of us would be shocked that one campaign is saying something about another campaign. But Hillary Clinton's campaign doesn't need to talk about madrassas when it comes to Barack Obama.

They're going to have a debate on the war, they're going to talk about other things. And I think it's kind of ludicrous, ridiculous, silly. And at this point in a campaign, it's just -- it's too early, and people will just turn off totally on this campaign if they think that this is one charge one campaign is floating against another.

Honestly, I think Jonah's right. It comes from his book. Read his book. You'll see his background. He puts it all out there. KURTZ: If you're going to say essentially that one campaign is engaged in a bit of dirty trickery by floating information unflattering to another candidate, doesn't it help to have a document, a fax, a named source?

I'm serious. I'm serious.

9. What goes around, comes around.
It is very early in the game to be doing this. People will have a lot of time to connect the dots and plot revenge. (Which is one thing Dems do very, very well.)

Wait and see what happens. This is Hillary's week, we shall see what the next weeks involve and who they involve.

11. Never too early to spread an appropriate mem. Takes awhile to take hold.
After all, look how quickly teanm Clinton worked to implant the lie that 2004 was only lost by Kerry's 'poor' campaigning.

That distracted all attention from election fraud issue and DNC's horrific targeted state strategy that allowed many state party's infrastructures to collapse, thereby assuring no security in those states for the entire election process.
