414. Hillary, I must ask--what the HELL is wrong with you?
Edited on Fri May-23-08 08:00 PM by Arkana
No one believes that you're hoping for Obama's assassination--at least no one with half a brain.

But this is at BEST an incredibly moronic and insensitive analogy to use in context with the first black man who is a serious contender for the Presidency. You should KNOW better than this. Goddamn it, Hillary, what the HELL is the matter with you?

And your non-apology? Pathetic. "If I offended anyone" is not an apology, Senator Clinton. You KNOW better than this--you have been around long enough. God fucking damnit.

This is absolutely an inexcusable thing to say. Though I sincerely hope you did not mean it, you raised the terrifying specter of assassination in American politics when you even SUGGESTED that you were staying in the race in the event that some nut kills Barack Obama and you scared the hell out of half of America.

To use your words, Senator:

"Shame on you, Hillary Clinton. Shame on you!"
