Say Goodnight, Hillary

For those who may have been off the planet out of town this past weekend, Hillary Rodham-Clinton's latest gaffe appears to confirm what many had already thought:
Hillary Clinton today brought up the assassination of Sen. Robert Kennedy while defending her decision to stay in the race against Barack Obama.

"My husband did not wrap up the nomination in 1992 until he won the California primary somewhere in the middle of June, right? We all remember Bobby Kennedy was assassinated in June in California. I don't understand it," she said, dismissing calls to drop out.

Obama's camp immediately fired back.

"Sen. Clinton's statement before the Argus Leader editorial board was unfortunate and has no place in this campaign," Obama campaign spokesman said in a statement.

Clinton made her comments at a meeting with the Sioux Falls Argus-Leader's editorial board while campaigning in South Dakota, where she complained that, "People have been trying to push me out of this ever since Iowa."

Obama, the first African-American to advance so far in the race for the White House, has faced threats, sources have said.

Robert Kennedy, the younger brother of President John F. Kennedy, was gunned down in 1968 after winning the California primary. He had been a hero on the left for his civil rights agenda and calls to end the war in Vietnam.
Interestingly, some in the MSM seem to be willing to give Rodham-Clinton a pass on this one.

As many gave her a pass on
the lies that she cooked-up regarding Bosnian snipers.

And let's not forget how Hillary even managed to "misspeak"
the facts surrounding her own name.

Wasn't it amusing how a short few weeks ago Hillary running amok campaigned about the country while continually lecturing us telling folks that if "they [Obama] couldn't stand the heat, then they should stay out of the kitchen?"

Now all she and her surrogates can do is
whine about how the mainstream media has treated her unfairly due to their "sexism."

I still chuckle when I think about how Bill Clinton used a football metaphor in order to justify he and his wife's
use of political dirty tricks:
"If a politician doesn't wanna get beat up, he shouldn't run for office," he said. "If a politician doesn't wanna get beat up, he shouldn't run for office. If a football player doesn't want to get tackled or want the risk of an a occasional clip he shouldn't put the pads on."
This from the same individual who loudly complained earlier this year about how the "boys" were beating-up on poor Hillary and how they are currently "disrespecting" his wife.

Maybe the ex philanderer-in chief president is worried that the "boys" will finally get around to asking Hillary why she has never worn a U.S. Flag pin on her pantsuit lapel...

Meanwhile, a now 28-year-old Chelsea Clinton has been going about the country extolling the virtues of her mom and dad while taking a leave of absence from that Wall Street hedge fund that she has been working at.

But she absolutely refuses to answer any reporter's questions. Even
when the reporter is nine-year old little girl.

I guess "little" Chelsea Clinton still needs to be protected from the press and public.

It's high time for the Clinton's these whiners to head back to Chappaqua the Learjet Liberal enclave from which they came.

And stay there.

If Barack Obama does nothing else but prevent these cry-babies from having a return engagement to the White House, then he would have performed all of us a priceless public service by saving us four (possibly eight) more years of scandal, word-parsing, and hypocrisy.
