Major Hillary supporter comes out for McCain; says Obama not who he says he is and Dems being taken over by MoveOn.org types
Here is some interesting news:
John Coale, a prominent Washington lawyer, husband of Fox TV host Greta Van Susteren and a supporter of Sen. Hillary Clinton, announced today that he was supporting John McCain for president. Coale, who traveled with Sen. Clinton, President Clinton and her family through out the primary season, complained of sexism, and said the Democratic Party is “being taken over by the moveon.org types” in an exclusive interview with Newsweek.com’s Tammy Haddad.
Watch the video. Says he is recruiting “lots” of Democrats who will come out for McCain in the next few weeks.
Given their now well-documented inability to discern fact from fiction, how well do you think the Kos Kidz will handle this actual news? Maybe they will learn something about not over-playing their hand between now and when they hit puberty. LOL.
Froma Harrop reflects on Hillary’s words and actions at the Democratic convention as well as the reaction of her supporters to being Kos’d. Bush Derangement Syndrome seems to have begotten Hillary Derangement Syndrome and now Palin Derangement Syndrome. Sounds like a clinical condition, doesn’t it?! Or, at least a maturity problem!
As I wrote in the comments section:
It is also probably true that Coale and his ilk are political pragmatists who are motivated by wanting to see Hillary be able to run again for President in 2012. For that to happen, Obama has to lose in 2008 and they need to be able to pin the loss on him and the MoveOn.org types so they can marginalize all of them in time for 2012 – without Hillary being tainted directly by their actions. A 1-term McCain presidency provides them with the chance to make that gameplan happen.
More broadly, what these immature Kos Kidz don’t get is that some of us have intensely disagreed with Bush, the Republican Party, and Hillary at various times but we haven’t felt the need to do what they have done and jump off the emotional deep end over our disagreements.
By overplaying their hand, the Kidz have polarized people and appear to have fractured their party’s coalition. Hard to win elections – even in what should be a slam-dunk year – when you drive away key elements of your left-of-center coalition.
Hey, Kidz, politics is a contact sport so either grow up now so you can play ball with the rest of us grownups or sit on the sidelines until you have the emotional and intellectual maturity to run onto the field.
