I don't have to say a word...

I'm reposting this from Americablog because it says exactly what I feel.

Go away you horrible human being

Good God. What is wrong with her? The Clintons and their campaign staff don't give a damn that they are now hurting our electoral chances in the fall against McCain and against the Republicans in Congress. Their campaign isn't happening in some vacuum, and they know it. Our candidates can't fundraise because of her. Obama can't focus on McCain because of her. Obama is wasting money on HER, rather than spending it on McCain, because of her. EMILY's List, and AFSCME, and the American Federation of Teachers and others are wasting their members' money on her now-failed race - money that they could be spending, should be spending, on other real races, races that haven't already lost. She can't win, the math says she lost the nomination, but she doesn't give a damn. She's going to stay in the race like some spoiled hateful egotistical brat.

Why is the media even covering her? The only stories that should be written about Hillary Clinton is how much damage she's causing our party. How she's hurting fundraising at the DNC - they even admitted it, they're not raising the money they need to fight John McCain because of this woman. Why don't you write some stories about how she is hurting our candidates who can't fundraise because of her? How she has forced EMILY's List and AFSCME and the AFT to waste their money because of her. How she has caused a civil war in the Netroots. Five months ago we all felt that we had 3 great candidates. Now, far too many of us loathe Hillary Clinton, and she has done her racist best to ensure that her supporters can't stand Barack Obama either.

The Clintons don't give a damn about our party. Their party, their church, is themselves. To hell with everyone else. I actually liked Hillary up until a few months ago. Other bloggers used to tell me that Joe and I were too nice to Hillary. People just assumed that we were endorsing her. Now I actually loathe her. She makes me yell at the TV like she's George Bush, and no one other than George Bush makes me yell at the TV - until now. I actually can't stand her or her husband any more. I defended her. I defended her husband. And now I'm actually wondering if the Republicans weren't right about them. That's how bad she has damaged her reputation. People who actually liked you, who actually helped you, who actually defended you, LOATHE you now. Call me a Clinton-hater all you like, but people like me were the ones who had your back. And we never will again.

Let me close with what Mike Huckabee just said on MSNBC:

"The happiest person in America tonight is John McCain."

My initial reaction was 'Oh hey, President Hillary. Probably not going to happen, cos she's far too reasonable, but it'd be kinda shiny'. Then she started campaigning and my immediate reaction was '... where the hell is Hillary Clinton?'

Perhaps the Pacific distorts perception, but it seems the very things that made her appealing as a candidate are the things that made her untenable as a candidate. So she gave herself a makeover, and immediately lost a biiiiig whack of credibility.

Yeah...she's starting to look less like a "fighter" and more like an "Evil Overlord."

Aravosis always puts it so eloquently. The Clintons have long thought they were entitled to the nomination and at this point, they're still fighting denial and reality. I thought Hillary was going to leave the campaign on a blaze of glory after winning WV, but I see "its on" once again. *sigh*...

The fact that she's still around says a lot about her feelings for democracy. Given that the only way she can win now is basically to overturn the will of the people. That's not something that dictators do, at all.
