Obama’s VP pick is the gift that keeps on giving – for women that is.
refreshing memories to those who might have forgotten – with thanks to Lula May at capital Hill Forum:
Professor Hill came across as so credible, people were left with only one of two choices. She’s credible, therefore believe her, or she’s credible, therefore say she’s crazy.
There is absolutely not one shred of evidence to suggest that Professor Hill is fantasizing, not one shred of evidence to suggest that Professor Hill isn’t and has not been in total control of all her faculties. There is no shred of evidence for the garbage that I hear — not on this floor — but I’ve heard in the newscast floating around that somehow she really is telling — that she thinks she’s telling the truth. The only answer we can come up with is she must be fantasizing. I’ve even heard it suggested that psychiatrists — one of our colleagues has said something to the effect, in holding the paper saying: Psychiatrists have a name for it. I can’t think of the name for it. But — but it happens. It’s not unusual. An otherwise truthful woman believing that she’s still being truthful engages in conduct of fantasy, and it has a — psychiatrists call it something.
and I had to stop the quote eventually, because Joe is long winded and takes one more gigantic paragraph to call Hill crazy (after starting with “no shred of evidence she isn’t sane)
And as Rabble Rouser reverend Amy says at No Quarter, we know for a fact from David Brock’s Blinded by the Right that Thomas was committing perjury and Hill was framed by the very real VRWC.
After the chance of having the first woman president is taken away from us, who do we get?
CNN reports a NEGATIVE BUMP from the VP pick
In a new CNN/Opinion Research Corporation poll out Sunday night, 47 percent of those questioned are backing Obama with an equal amount supporting the Arizona senator.
“This looks like a step backward for Obama, who had a 51 to 44 percent advantage last month,” says CNN Polling Director Keating Holland.
And I bet he knew it – hence the announcement on a Saturday (news dump), right before the convention (new headlines kicking this away). We show:
Sixty-six percent of Clinton supporters, registered Democrats who want Clinton as the nominee, are now backing Obama. That’s down from 75 percent in the end of June. Twenty-seven percent of them now say they’ll support McCain, up from 16 percent in late June.
“The number of Clinton Democrats who say they would vote for McCain has gone up 11 points since June, enough to account for most although not all of the support McCain has gained in that time,” says Holland.
A majority of registered voters, 54 percent, think Obama’s choice of Delaware Senator Joe Biden as his running mate is an excellent or good decision. That number jumps to 73 percent when just asked of registered Democrats. But it drops to 59 percent when narrowed to Clinton supporters.
