Obama Or Nothing in 2008!


What did I tell you about the sheer viciousness of the Clinton campaign? 'Billary' is nothing but Karl Rove the notorious political gangster and campaign mastermind of Bushwhacker II (you know--"Bush's Brain") in bisexual drag. Now THAT monster's brain has mutated and engulfed the Vampire cranium shell that is Hillary /Bill Clinton. It's a measure of just how thoroughly corrupt and criminal American politics truly are that Samatha Powers has to be victimized FOR MERELY TELLING THE TRUTH. My grim electoral predictions for 2008 stick more than ever now that it's crystal clear that the white elite leadership of the Democratic Party (and their endless array of Latino, white--and even some black-- lackeys, tokens, and SYNCOPHANTS of the MONSTROUS CLINTON MACHINE) are ready to hand the nomination over to Hillary the way street level thugs hand over their tribute to their "Godfathers' (and Mothers)...

My prediction is not only that if she receives the Democratic Party nomination that she will LOSE to McCain and the protofascist Republican Party but IF she gets the nomination I TRULY HOPE AND PRAY THAT SHE LOSES.

Maybe the sheer HORROR of yet another Republican administration in the White House might finally wake us all up from this nihilistic/cynical zombie state we've been in for the past 40 years (FACT: Since 1968--the year of the assassinations of Dr. King & Senator Robert Kennedy--there have been 10 presidential elections and the virulent racist, sexist, and imperialist rightwing Republican Party has won 7 of them. McCain would be the 8th). That would mean that the Republican Party would have won 72% of all the elections held in this country over the past FOUR DECADES. How's that pathetic record for a braindead republic?...

After ‘Monster’ Remark, Aide to Obama Resigns


Updated | 11:45 a.m.: CHICAGO – A senior foreign policy adviser and close friend of Senator Barack Obama said today that she was resigning from the campaign, after she apologized for referring to Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton as “a monster.”

Samantha Power, a professor of public policy at the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard, made the comment during an interview in London with The Scotsman, a Scottish newspaper. She derided Mrs. Clinton as a desperate candidate who is “stooping to anything,” according to the newspaper’s account.

“With deep regret, I am resigning from my role as an adviser to the Obama campaign effective today,” Ms. Power said in a statement released by the campaign. “Last Monday, I made inexcusable remarks that are at marked variance from my oft-stated admiration for Senator Clinton and from the spirit, tenor, and purpose of the Obama campaign. And I extend my deepest apologies to Senator Clinton, Senator Obama, and the remarkable team I have worked with over these long 14 months.”

Ms. Power was an unpaid adviser to the campaign, but a member of Mr. Obama’s close inner-circle of academic advisers. She worked for a year as a fellow in his Senate office, advising him on Africa and other foreign policy subject areas.

Ms. Power’s resignation was announced today as Mr. Obama was boarding his campaign plane in Chicago for a flight to Wyoming, where he will spend the afternoon and evening campaigning. He did not speak to reporters and aides said they did not expect him to address the matter.

The swift resignation was designed to contain the story and the fallout.

The derogatory remark violated Mr. Obama’s often-repeated pledge to run a hopeful political campaign, free of gratuitous negativity and name-calling.

The comments came as feelings intensify and harden between Clinton and Obama loyalists in the protracted fight for the Democratic presidential nomination. And her misstep came on the heels of the controversy involving another Obama adviser whose remarks to Canadian officials about Nafta drew heated criticisms from Senator Clinton’s campaign for days before the Ohio primary.

Another comment from Ms. Power has also been attracting notice: During a BBC interview she expressed a lack of confidence that Mr. Obama will be able to carry through his plan to withdraw troops from Iraq within 16 months. The Clinton campaign posted the interview and a transcript on its Web site.
