The former Information Minister for President George W. Bush, “Comical Ari” Fleischer, is appearing on CNN now as a political expert for Election ’08 coverage because, as you know, he’s a master b.s. artist and we can’t have objective analysis sullying our airwaves. But tonight on Super Tuesday, in a rare moment of candor and honesty, he said with a straight face (because he wasn’t kidding) the following on behalf of Republicans:
There is no doubt … we hope and pray every night to run against Hillary Clinton.
And now you know exactly why Fleischer, Ann Coulter, James Dobson, Michelle Malkin, Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, and myriad other foul hatebeasts of the far right are curiously pulling for Hillary and/or bashing McCain. They don’t care who the GOP nominee is. They want Americans to think the Republican Party is fractured and terrified of Clinton. It has everything to do with ensuring she is the Democratic nominee so they can beat her in November or sink her presidency before the next election. They will achieve one of those goals, guaranteed. They will devote every ounce of energy they have to it.
You all who vote for Clinton are making a mistake. Obama is the only Democrat that the GOP can’t defeat, no matter who they put up against him or how many e-voting machines they tamper with. My only fear is that as Obama is headed for a landslide victory on November 4, we’ll hear from our old pal Osama bin Laden, or another more heinous dog will be wagged.
UPDATE 06 FEB 2008: Pat Buchanan has joined the “Flush John Down the John” Club. Keep taking the bait, Dems. Don’t let the right down.
UPDATE 2.0 06 FEB 2008: Obama knows what’s up.
