Milbank is flogging his CDS in this twisted column

Washington Sketch: Clinton finally ahead of Obama in popularity

.Now, everyone knows Hillary got more votes in the primary than Obama , so this “finally” only applies to the villagers, and there’s a lot of obfuscation about it

Here’s how Millbank starts it

It’s about two years too late, but Hillary Clinton has finally pulled ahead of Barack Obama.

Most of the article is laced with the usual “easy for her to” excuses we’ve seen since the primaries.

Although Millbank does shoot himself in the foot with one finding that he doesn’t pursue to its logical conclusion

Previous secretaries of state Colin Powell and Condoleezza Rice were both more popular than their boss, President George W. Bush. But such a trend is not universal: Warren Christopher didn’t have ratings as high as his boss, President Bill Clinton.

Hmmm, can you see the hidden pattern here, kids? The little flaw in the media narrative on both Clintons? Could it be they were ALWAYS more popular not just  than Warren Cristopher, but W, jr.jr and others Milbank &friends tried to elevate above them? Truth is a daughter of time and it seems to be coming to surface from the gusher of snark.

Millbank concludes waving his CDS up high

Few could have imagined back in that prior life that the controversial and polarizing first lady would someday win the favor of two-thirds of her countrymen.

Yet, with all those fits of pique and venom, the article went big (and surprising) in B0botland

PUMA and PUMA 2.0 seem to be joining up:

The apologists’s huffing is rudely interrupted

. How can that be possible?

He is a Nobel Peace Prize winning chess playing Political genius??

Hell, just last week he put those pesky unions in their place!

and it gets better:

7. I am hoping she challenges him in 2012..She definitely

will have my vote..I supported Obama but I think we have been fooled…Its like having a Bush third term..
INdemo

So much so that an apologist asks an obvious question

LOL. Fighting all sides. Sheesh.

Where were these people during the primaries???

and gets n obvious answer

44. I think they got run off for being PUMAS.

Only a few survived. But they’re back since Obama seems to be regularly attacked on DU

And someone replies to the old “they aren’t that different meme”

58. With one difference

Hillary has a pair

On revisiting, in order to “protect the community” that comment has since been removed.

Someone even evaluates Millbank’s scribbling correctly

0. Milbank’s article is snarky.

Besides, Hillary has been polling better than Obama for months. These media types, including Milbank, trashed Hillary endlessly during the primaries and now they see the light? A pox on all their houses.

although a fer take comfort in th snark.

and more Hillary supporters dare to show up

18. That’s who I voted for!

A better read than Millbank’s little piece of snark .
