#1 He's lucky he didn't develop a sudden case of Vince Foster syndrome.

#2 She will not just throw them under the bus, she will drive the bus and back repeatedly over anyone who gets in her way to get to the White House again.

#3 Ht to AOSHQ:
Blue Hampshire catches Clinton staffers' sockpuppetry:
"Recently, we admins noticed this comment thread on a recommended diary, and the oddities it posed made us look a little deeper than we normally would.
As the comment thread revealed, users pinballwizard, elf, shley24, MTAY all registered in succession to recommend the diary. A further look by us revealed that:

* they had registered within minutes of each other, including another user a bit later, janbaby, who was not among the recommenders,
* the same IP address was used by all of them, and is registered to the Clinton campaign,
* two other recommenders, blues and kmeisje, also registered from the same IP address.

To be clear, and to reiterate what's stated in our Getting Started page: paid campaign staff are welcome in this community, but are asked to disclose their affiliation to a campaign, either through their signature line, a disclosure statement on a diary, or even in the choosing of a username. The fact that all the users mentioned above came from a Clinton campaign IP, but did not register with campaign email addresses, and avoided making comments or diaries, instead only recommending pro-Clinton diaries, strikes us as gaming the system and a form of "recommend astroturf." As a result, we have banned those accounts, and will do so again for undisclosed paid staffers of any campaign if need be.

We have spoken with Kathleen Strand, who assured us that this was not an orchestrated effort but the product of over-eager staffers and volunteers, done without her awareness, and that it will not be repeated. We appreciate her responsiveness and believe that this may indeed be a misunderstanding of low-level staffers of the norms of the site."

this by a site that is not anti-HRC by any means. Can you smell the desperation? Of course all those "over-eager staffers.... and volunteers" will be fired, and their FBI files retained for further discipline (for being caught so easily). Incompetence will be the lower levels!

#4 Like someone said, what we have here is Richard Milhous Nixon is a pantsuit. Now it's great to have Dick Nixon to kick around again during the campaign, but don't let it go any further, OK? On a different note, does anyone have a copy of the official Enemies List?

#5 Heh, on first glance, I thought the headline was, "Hillary Throws Sheehan Under the Bus." My bad......

#6 On a different note, does anyone have a copy of the official Enemies List?

I believe that goes under the "Vast Right Wing Conspiracy" subheading. To be found at any voter registration office under 'Republican'.
