    • America Defeats Germany Again
      There’s a good article in Der Spiegel on the German energy/industrial crisis which is worth your time. Basically industries which have high energy costs are being crushed.

FFS, guys…

Do you know what sucks? When people are on your side, and they insist on making your points BADLY. Case in point: A dentist from Chicago has taken out a Hillary for President ad using his own money. Any guesses how this will play out/is Already playing out?

A) Make things more difficult for Hillary, by making her publicly declare YET AGAIN that she doesn’t intend to run (even if she’s considering it), and drawing a bunch of criticism of her at a time when she should be laying low

B) Get all the true-believer O-bots foaming at the mouth about how Hillary is a terrible choice for President, an unattractive bitch, and Obama is owed his second term, and how anyone who says otherwise is… well, you know the rest…

C) Get all the disgruntled O-bots complaining about how she wouldn’t have been any better

D) Get all the sheepish O-bots suggesting that Hillary should be VP in 2012 (because Biden is obviously the problem), and should run in 2016, because now she’s proven herself as SOS

E) Get all the partisan zombies talking about how any D is better than any R, and so get over it and back the winner and don’t rock the boat

F) Get all the Republican CDSers ramping up the misogyny and bullshit about Hillary and the Clintons

Oh, and BTW, does anyone remember awhile ago when I said that as Obama got less and less popular we’d start seeing a renewed shit-storm against Hillary and Palin? I hate being right about this stuff.
