I'm a big-time sports fan, a politics, media & law junkie, an astronomy buff, a weather nerd, an Apple aficionado, a Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter fanatic, and an all-around dork. My blog is best-known for its coverage of Hurricane Katrina, but I blog about anything and everything that interests me.

Obama goes on the offensive

"That's some politics being played by Hillary Clinton," he says of her reaction to his "bitter" gaffe. "She knows better. Shame on her."

Don't miss the riff on Clinton "talking like she's Annie Oakley," from around 4:10 to around 5:00. LOL!

P.S. Just the other day, I heard a tune on WDVX that might be a good campaign theme song for Hillary. It's Track 7 on the Biscuit Burners' new album, and can be found on iTunes here. Here's the chorus:


Meanwhile, we now have the Bitter Voters for Obama. Heh. (Hat tip: Marty West.)

P.P.S. Theda Skocpol writes into TPM with her take on Bittergate:

I have been in meetings with the Clintons and their advisors where very clinical things were said in a very-detached tone about unwillingness of working class voters to trust government -- and Bill Clinton -- and about their unfortunate (from a Clinton perspective) proclivity to vote on life-style rather than economic issues. To see Hillary going absolutely over the top to smash Obama for making clearly more humanly sympathetic observations in this vein, is just amazing. Even more so to see her pretending to be a gun-toting non-elite. Give us a break! ...

The distribution of "we're not bitter" stickers to her campaign rallies is the height of over-the-top crudity, and the reports are that very few audience members seem to have much enthusiasm for this nonsense. Not surprisingly, people cannot see the reasons for so much fuss. ... [W]here is her authenticity and her dignity and her sense of any proportion?

Authenticity? Dignity? Hillary? Surely you jest.

Why isn't Hillary's shot getting more coverage? She went to a bar in Indiana (across the border from Kentucky) and ordered a boilermaker. When asked what kind of whiskey she wanted, she said "Crown Royal." Crown Royal???? A Canadian whiskey? And when she is just across the border from Jim Beam country? How un-American! Shame! SHAME!!!

Jim Beam sucks.

From the looks of the video, she sipped the shot. Chicago Tribune has the video on their front page.


This may be true. But my understanding is the beer was Old Milwaukee, so....

boo hillary


Ok well then there is no excuse.

Side note: A bar here in Philly as a special they call the 'real man', it's a 16oz PBR can and a shot of Beam. It's only $3.00. Let's see O or H come into town and put a few of those down.
