195. Time out!!!
Edited on Fri May-23-08 04:11 PM by Dogtown
Take a deep breath, people.

HRC's intention is clear: Some RW gunman, lone or not, *could* make an attempt on Mr. Obama's life. There is, after all, an enormous amount of racial hatred in this country. Her point, however, is NOT the ludicrous scenario being postulated. She wants to rob support from her opponent by making us fear we'll lose our candidate, and therefore the election.

It's a sad, desperate trick by a worn out and bankrupt campaign.

In light of the ongoing Kennedy tragedy it was cold-hearted, mean spirited, and viciously self-serving, as well.

BUT

**In Our Rabid, Attack-Mode, Hyper-Testicular Pit-Bulls-Only milieu, we're over-reacting and imagining the unthinkable.**

AND WE'RE BEING PLAYED.

R-W operatives, either grandiose wannabees or paid employees matters not, have access to this forum and actively disrupt. These folk love the concept of "meme", do you not think some of the Chicken Little doomsday posts in this thread are the *real* feelings expressed?

I see some wag upthread called her a "cow", my apologies to said poster if he's just sexist and not an agent-provocateur, but that is NOT a reasonable term on a progressive board. It's inflamatory and divisive.

CALM DOWN!

The nomination is going to happen as it will happen. Our screaming at each other and hurling whatever alley-apples are w/in reach won't affect it. It has, in fact, almost certainly been decided.

But RW attempts to split the party are a real threat and we must NOT chump-up for them. We need to remain firmly in control of our passions and not scare off the undecideds by having an unruly household.
