And here we go again.
One Clinton aide yesterday derided Mr Obamas victories in "boutique" caucus states rather than the hardscrabble terrain of the rustbelt, saying: "Obama has won the small caucus states with the latte-sipping crowd. They dont need a president, they need a feeling."

Really, why don't Clinton and McCain get a room already? They're all using the same arguments.

Even if those arguments are so darn stupid.

The rust belt is (from west to east) the states bordering the great lakes: Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and New York. Of those states that have had a real contest, Obama won two (WI and IL), Clinton won two (OH, NY), IN and PA is pending, and MI is still trying to figure out how to have a real contest. Not exactly dominant

And what the heck is up with the "latte-sipping" crap?

Here's the map, Obama states in Blue, Clinton states in Red (because she and her campaign have fallen in love with right-wing McCain frames). (And yes, I'm giving Clinton Texas and Nevada for winning the popular vote in those states, even though she ultimately lost them in delegates):

3. that lame latte line is taken directly from the Pugs.
as much of Hilliar's screeds are taken from.
change some names and I swear hers is the same MO as Bush's supporters in 2 and 2004.

4. Insulting millions of Democrats in smaller states is A OK........
Just dont say "Hillary's a monster, she'll do anything to win" or you could lose your job.
