Regular readers here will know that I am a huge supporter of Barack Obama, no questions about it. Needless to say this stupid twisting of his "Bitter Comments" have been driving me nuts. For the longest time I couldn't quite figure out why.
Sure it seems stupid for two people (John McCain and Hillary Clinton), who are multi-multi-millionaires to call someone who worked with his way out of poverty in Chicago as "out of touch", but that wasn't quite it.
I thought for a while it may be the fact that Obama is the only one to raise money only from the voters, and not for the lobbyists. Surely that makes him more in touch than any other candidate right? Somehow that didn't seem to explain it away.
Maybe it's because this isn't half the gaffe that Clinton's "Sniper Fire" was. She lied many times about being shot at and claims that she was "over tired and misspoke". Yet she won't let Obama misspeak on something once? Interesting, but it doesn't quite quell my rage on the subject.
What really bothers me is something much more simple than that. It's the math. The only conceivable way for Clinton to beat Obama is to have the Superdelegates to vote against both the seated delegates and the popular vote and side with her over Obama. Just a refresher on Superdelegates, they are the party's elite members who can vote on whoever they want, and are not tied to any public votes.
That's right, Hillary Clinton's only conceivable hope to defeat this "elitist" Barack Obama is to pander to the party's elite and have them overturn the will of the public. Yes, she needs the elite to defeat the "elitist".
Mrs. Clinton, I think that the pot is on the other line, apparently it's calling you black.
