2008 Elections: Today's Mail From Clinton

We've previously stated that we wrote Clinton expressing our admiration for her way back when she first declared her presidential ambitions. Bad mistake. As a result of an error of judgment (ours), we have been plagued, daily, by pieces such as this in our emailbox:

"Maggie Williams, Hillary Clinton for President" wrote:

Dear [name],
Help in IN and NC

The volunteers who make calls into primary states have made a huge difference for our campaign. The calls they made were a big part of our tremendous victory in Pennsylvania.

Now we're just one day away from critical primary races in Indiana and North Carolina -- and every voter matters. We need volunteers making as many calls as they can -- you are a part of our plan for victory.

Can you join the tens of thousands of people making calls for Hillary today?

Click here to make calls to Indiana and North Carolina.

When you talk to a voter one-on-one and tell them why you're supporting Hillary, it increases the chances that they will support our candidate. The more people we call, the more people are going to go to the polls in Indiana and North Carolina and vote for Hillary.

Even if you can only spare a couple of hours, you can have a big impact. Our calling tool is so efficient that one person can make dozens of calls in a very short time.

The Indiana and North Carolina primaries are tomorrow. Hillary needs you to be her voice.

Thank you for everything you do and have done to help Hillary make sure America has the president it needs to face the challenges of the future.

Today, we wrote back in an access, as it were, of wrath:
I will never be part of your plan.

  • Hillary praised McCain while disparaging Obama, her Democratic rival.
  • Hillary threatened to "obliterate" a nation of 70 million women, children, and men in retaliation for an impossible hypothetical situation.
  • Hillary voted to let George Bush start a war that has drained the U.S. Treasury and caused undeniable suffering to millions of American taxpayers and death and suffering to millions of innocent Iraqis.
  • Hillary is the queen of pork, with a million dollar plan for a Woodstock museum (oh, puh-leez).
  • Hillary is pandering to the ignorant by offering a gas tax scam that she cannot possibly implement for at least a year, more likely a decade.
  • Hillary sat down with Richard Mellon Scaife, chief funder of the Vast Rightwing Conspiracy.
  • Hillary wasted over $100 million dollars in her campaign and has only $15 million in debt to show for a limping pathetic run.
  • Hillary stiffed her small vendors who assisted her campaign, including her own employees for whose health insurance she failed to pay timely.
  • Hillary has lied repeatedly, pandered repeatedly, claimed to be friends with a man who openly stated her daughter was the "ugly" product of her lesbian relationship with Janet Reno.
  • Hillary Clinton the supposed feminist had the gall to insult feminist New Zealand Prime Minister Helen Clark, and has yet to apologize for that nasty, misogynistic remark.
Hillary Clinton - and Bill Clinton - will never, ever get any support from me. Ever.
Of course, La Clinton will never read it herself. That's what her "little people" are for. That, and operating her coffee machines.

Yes, we're well aware that they're all politicians. But for a brief moment there, one of those politicians had begun to awaken a glimmer of hope &mdash after eight years of stupefied hopelessness &mdash in the heart of the nation.

Personally, we sincerely hope she vanishes into a well-earned obscurity. She crossed the line, for us, when she insulted Helen Clark. A more sincere and thoughtful woman, by all accounts, than La Clinton will ever be.

Till now, we've been offended by her on a daily basis, yet unable to resist the strong pull of more than two decades of loyal support for her and her husband. Now, it's really over. We can't bring ourselves (still!) to insult her. But never again will we support her in any way, shape, or form. She has irretrievably, irredeemably, alienated us forever. Goodbye, Hillary. It's very hard, and very sad, to let you go. But we're done.

Ouch. Very ouch. I don't support her now, but if, by some random miracle of the political gods she does get the nomination, I guess I'll drag my ass down and vote for her over the alternative.

There was a time when I said I wouldn't do that, but I'm getting soft in my old age.

Still - go Obama!

You forgot to mention, Hillary has cankles.

Alan, at this point the only way she can get the nomination is to overturn the will of over 50% of the Democratic primary voters. And she's been such a panderbear and liar, I'm afraid to trust her in the slightest.

Would you consider writing in Obama? If all Obama supporters did that, he'd probly win in a landslide. And it would send the Democratic party an indisputable message.

Fairlane, what are cankles? Sounds like a disease.

Hillary really does play hardball.
