Clinton Meets with Obama

By auguste

Apparently within the last three hours:

“She is not seeking the vice presidency, and no one speaks for her but her,” communications director Howard Wolfson said. “The choice here is Senator Obama’s and his alone.”

In an e-mail to supporters, the New York senator said she “will be speaking on Saturday about how together we can rally the party behind Senator Obama. The stakes are too high and the task before us too important to do otherwise.”

Clinton expressed the same sentiment in a conference call with 40 members of her national finance committee, whom she urged to begin raising money for Obama and for the Democratic National Committee.

This isn’t really a surprise, although its quick arrival is probably a pleasant one.

The Hopscotch Of Freedom

By Jesse Taylor

You know what? We were proved fucking right. That’s what happened. People who disagreed with us were saying, ‘There they go again.’ But we were proved fucking right. The thing that always bothered me about the overall idea of being lied to repeatedly by the leader of the free world…

Argh, I’m done hiding my head and will be brave enough to talk about it, having been inspired by Sarah Seltzer. All these attacks on “Sex and the City” in light of the movie that has come out—mostly from people who probably never watched a minute of the show—are sexist.…

What To Look Forward To

By Jesse Taylor

McCain is using Obama’s website. McCain is looking to put Fauxbama on his ticket. Word’s coming down that he’s trying to pay off his minister to put up a YouTube video of him saying “Fuck Jesus” to the beat of the Notorioius B.I.G.’s “Get Money”. We’ll let you know how…


Feminists: Not really stupid

By Amanda Marcotte

Once again, I have to exercise skepticism that there’s huge numbers of “angry white women” out there who will vote McCain instead of Obama out of spite. Spite feelings are running high right now, which is why Joan Walsh makes me cringe 15 separate times in her piece today. Threats…

Because It’s Race Day

Tom Maguire, commenting on this article: “We as black people now have hope that we have never, ever had,” Mr. Sam-Brew said. “I have new goals for my little girl. She can’t give me any excuses because she’s black.” What a wonderful country, and I can almost hear Mr. Sam-Brew…


Mike Signorile tries to bore into the ‘if not Hillary, I’m voting McCain’ logic

It was a difficult day on The Michelangelo Signorile Show yesterday, as Mike spoke with several angry callers who are ready to vote for John McCain before casting a ballot for Barack Obama. In the clip below, the caller cites a few reasons I’ve seen out there, including: 1) we…
