HillShill Taylor Marsh shows the drug remark was no accident.

So much for not fighting the wars of the last two decades.

In the process we've gone from Who would you rather have a beer with? to Who would you rather snort a line with.

The Obama campaign will apologize immediately, right? They'll meet Clinton on the tarmac of Dulles International and Obama will say personally he's sorry for raising Lewinski, however delicately, right? That's when Clinton will say that leadership comes from the top.

When pigs fly.

Now that Obama's drug use is out and being talked about, which the campaign has obviously been waiting to happen for months, Axelrod hits back. Never mind that everyone is acting like it's Clinton's fault Obama experimented with drugs, let alone cocaine. Let's make her the issue. But Bill Clinton's sexual misdeeds have made Hillary Clinton a liability. Oh, but not just because of the Lewinski scandal. Tut-tut, never. Because Clinton's "liberal" policies won't fly in Wyoming. "Westerners" have an "independent libertarian" streak. Yeah, so they're just going to love the one about Obama signing on to banning handguns. Oh, but Obama doesn't believe that today. Great. He was for banning handguns before he was against it.

I can't wait to hear Wyoming's reaction to Obama's drug confessional to high school students, with the added chapter from his book that he was once on his way to "junkie." Never mind that this was never about helping the kids and teaching them a lesson, but instead meant to inoculate Mr. Obama on his past so he could run for president.

The political challenges of selling some of Mr. Obama's policy ideas are tough enough. You know, like campaigning on giving illegal immigrants driver's licenses. Yeah, that's a winner.

So at the very same time Mr. Axelrod is pontificating about Clinton going negative what taste treat does the campaign deliver? Long after she apologized and ditched the guy who went way off the reservation, the Obama camp delivers where the press wouldn't go. A superdelegate of Mr. Obama brings up the Lewinski greatest hits and how Clinton, by standing by her marriage vows, will incense Wyoming. By all means, let us all prop up the sexist pigs that still believe what's good for the goose means that it's the gander's fault.

I hope it won't hurt everyone's sensibilities but even out here in liberal land one thing is certain. Most everyone has sex. Not everyone does blow, let alone stands in front of junior high school students to tell the confessional tale while running for president. Admitting mistakes were made in your past is a lot easier when you weren't caught, but also when you happen to be an exceptional individual with more than the normal issue of talents.

Everyone is hopped up on "hope" right now, but the political blood sugar crash that will accompany this high is likely to be wicked when Mr. and Mrs. America take a look at the Democratic party's nominee only to find the 1960s revisited because the person Democrats are pushing experimented with drugs, but not just marijuana. I thought Mr. Obama didn't want to revisit the those generational wars? Well, when you're pushing a candidate that admits he used a variety of drugs I'd say that argument is pretty much off the table. So brush off your tie-dye, people. Let's all love one another right now. There's a reason college kids are flocking to Barack Obama. I'm not so sure we'll have the same luck with parents across America.

It should be a clue that whenever Sean Hannity and Ann Coulter are saying nice things about a Democrat, Barack Obama in this case, you can bet they're kicking each other under the Fox "News" anchor table, gnashing their teeth at the red meat to come.

A friend sent me a post from Carl Cameron's blog dated November 20th, which has a video of Rudy defending Barack Obama. Does anyone wonder why? It's obvious. Rudy and his prosecutor image is likely salivating at going up against Mr. Obama, former drug user.


Angry, hateful, awful human being. And she calls herself a Democrat.
