      Last Friday I wrote an article on the idea that if a society has a rule or duty, it must apply to everyone in the applicable situation, no matter who they are, even if itโ€™s someone you love. It was interesting to me that most of the commenters disagreed. Perhaps this is my fault in choosing the famous example of a German general executing his own son for aba […]

When this is all over…

…I hope someone writes a book about the incredible ups and downs of this campaign. It’s like one damn miracle after another. First, she loses Iowa, then she lets down her guard and wins New Hampshire.

She watches one state after another fall to her rival as he gets help from her own party and as he severs her ties to the African American community. And then she wins OH and TX in a do or die gambit.

She’s told she MUST win PA by at least 10 points, she gets outsepent in ads 3:1 and she does it, give or take a bit.

And her campaign has been on the brink of insolvency a couple of times and yet it always seems astonished when her grassroots, ones she didn’t even know she had, reward good behavior with their millions of dollars.

Guys, I know you’ve given and given til you can’t gives no more. But I’m going to ask you to do it one more time. Because it looks like your dollars will be matched ala public radio pledge week specials. Contribute $25 before midnight and your money will be matched. $50 turns into $100. You know the drill, er, except instead of a nifty tote bag or coffee mug, you get a brand new president!

Make history and contribute before midnight!

  1. At a recent Clinton event I attended, there was a very nice German man with a documentary camera interviewing people in line about the race, specifically WWTSBQ? line being pushed at the time, so it is being recorded for posterity!

  2. When all this is over you will still be the famous Goldberry from the June issue of Vanity Fair. check it out: http://www.vanityfair.com/politics/features/2008/06/wolcott200806

  3. there will be TEN books at least. ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Iowa is an ethanol state…

    I’d bet Obama will win each ethanol state, because his clean energy plan relies so heavily on the ethanol boondoggle. Clinton’s is all legislative ideas that reward and fund clean energy like solar and wind.

    Is Obama Green enough? Nope.

  5. NewHampster – that is hilarious~ cant wait until my issue shows up…that one might need to be framed.

    James Wolcott rules the waves, as always.

  6. dotcommodity: “Is Obama Green enough? Nope.” I dunno, he looked a little green around the gills yesterday while making his “outraged” (OUTRAGED, I tells ya!) speech. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  7. Holy $&*(! I made Vanity Fair? No way.
    I’m not worthy! I’m not worthy!

  8. rd: Can I get your worthy autograph, so I can put it up on e-bay and make some money from your fame (to my fortune, hah!). Purdy pleeez? ๐Ÿ˜‰

  9. riverdaughter: Yes WAY! — I just read it and you’re not just mentioned but, you’re quoted too!

  10. Fuckity-fuck-fuck-fuck! That means that Wolcott reads my stuff sometimes. That means I’ll start obsessing over my grammar and spelling. Ack! Ack! Performance anxiety!

  11. You are in there girl! Can’t wait to get my copy next week. Watch this site hits rise!

  12. congrats again. ๐Ÿ™‚ I am such a fan of Wolcott. it’s pretty interesting who gets a mention and who doesn’t.. there are some pro obama bloggers who are pretty loud yet don’t have a lot to say.. i wasn’t aware giordano got a lot of notice, but he was a big kerry guy in 04 and one of the very few people at daily kos to correctly predict what would happen in iowa.. in spite of a lot of angry people trying to shout down any dissent. i’m still surprised he’s all gung ho for obama..

  13. Congratulations, RD!

    Beware of incoming OFB trolls (Kid Oakland, where are you?).

  14. Davidson, shut UP!!

    Just Kidding. But, from now on when K/O shows up — I’m keeping my fat mouth shut. I think that conversations with him are a waste of time.

  15. Performance anxiety? No comment.

  16. katiebird, they are a waste of time when you let them continuously change the subject. Make them answer questions. They get flummoxed. When you are losing a debate–or don’t know an answer to the question–the best bet is to change the topic. I guess that’s just something I picked up when I’d fall asleep reading Plato’s Socratic dialogues as an undergrad.

  17. KB: Ha! I honestly feel a homicidal rage build up when encountering the OFB. Dealing with their use of absolute projection feels like pulling out my nails. I agree that it’s best not to feed the trolls–unless they’re some quick and easy debunking link one can use to dismiss their lies/distortions.

  18. I’ll take the brand new president over a tote bag any day.

  19. Edit: “..unless there’s some quick and easy…”

  20. Wow! Congrats on the VF mention, RD! *rolling eyes at the blather from some others mentioned in that piece – wthe!*

  21. K/O has an interesting technique. He ignores questions and tosses out more miss-representations of fact. He picks and chooses what he responds to. It’s very frustrating. And ultimately pointless. He doesn’t converse in good faith which makes him very close to a troll. At least at this site.

  22. How very cool! You must not have had your 15 minutes yet… At least they didn’t find a picture of you like the one of Marcos…

  23. jjm: Well, you know how it is, Annie Leibowitz was all tied up with Miley Cyrus and we had to re-schedule the photo session. Also, I just refused to take my clothes off. I know, I know, why worry about dignity *now*?

  24. I agree with Jim. Markos is not photogenic; that pic made him look like a weird combination of constipated and deranged. Oh well!

  25. scottreads: “constipated and deranged” OMG, hysterical, and sufficiently mean, as well.

    So anytime a pic needs to be posted of hizmajestymarkos, let’s be sure to use that one. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  26. I was just out for a surgery and I am barely out of anaesthesia.

    I may have missed the worst day Obama had in this campaign.

    I see that Obama gave a “historic” press conference where he “repudiated”, “renounced”, “rejected” Rev Wright as the whole MessNBC crew and Andrew Sullivan asked him to. Now everything should be fine.

    I see that Hillary is having a great time out there but what is this “gasoline tax” she’s taking a beating on about? I thought she said it was just temporary. Are “progressives” running out of issues to beat up Hillary on?

    Anyway, I have lots of reading to do.

  27. MABlue, the gas tax holiday is temporary—Mem Day to labor Day. McCain ahs a bill in the Senate right now.

    Hope you are well, my dear.

    Now hurry up and read and come back and be snarky. I will give you candy.

  28. MABlue!! I hope it was nothing serious and that you are on the mend. Are you feeling ok?

  29. rd, Ohio:

    I am still a little dizzy from the sedation and the pain killers, but by tomorrow I should be fine.

  30. Are you reading much now? Your dizziness could be from the spinning.

    Take care of yourself.

    RD; FYI, it’s spelled fuckety—Eff You See Kay EEEE Tea Why. Seriously, are you low informaiton or what?

  31. Are you reading much now? Your dizziness could be from the spinning.

    Take care of yourself.

    RD; FYI, it’s spelled fuckety—Eff You See Kay EEEE Tea Why. Seriously, are you low information or what?

  32. MABlue: Wishing you a most expedient recovery towards a well-rested and complete recovery.

  33. Typo above – well, hopefully, you got the gist of my sentiments. LOL!

  34. Yes MABlue — I hope you’re feeling better and your surgery was successful.

  35. MABlue: Best wishes for your recovery.

  36. Thanks guys for all the wishes. I take them to heart.

  37. Hurrah for Riverdaugher and katiebird and alll the others who post here!

    It is grand to see the great Wolcott bless you all.
