McGovern’s Advice to “She Who Must Not Be Named”

Posted by Ryan on May 7, 2008

Yes, my friends, 17-Electoral-Vote-getting George McGovern has made it known that he doesn’t think SWMNBN can win the Dem nomination and should back out for the sake of the party.  She split yesterday, taking Indiana by 1.7% and losing North Carolina by a heart-breaking 14 percentage points! 

All that’s fine though (McGovern’s entitled to his opinion), but in the tongue-in-cheek spirit of “Operation Chaos“, it was the party that produced these candidates and the people that have given SWMNBN two of the last three contests and narrowed the nation popular vote totals in contests after the Reverend Wright fiasco occurred.  It was also the party that denied Michigan and Florida a place in this race. 

That’s why I think SWMNBN is staying in despite what the insiders and spider-web crowd her to do.  Who are they to dictate before all the votes are cast (I’m still tongue-in-cheek)?  If the party forces SWMNBN out before June 3 and makes a huge spectacle of it, SWMNBN might just ask John McCain to be his running mate!  … That’s not funny (shudder).

She Has No Need for “Poverty Czar”

Posted by Ryan on April 5, 2008

She Who Must Not Be Named and her “husband” Bill clocked in a cool $109 million since Bill left office.  Not bad for the champion of the working class and poor now that John Edwards has left he race!  This information, predictably document-dumped on a Friday afternoon so no one will notice, comes on the heels of SWMNBN calling for the creation of a “poverty czar” whose cabinet-level job will be to end poverty in America.  Hmm… where have we heard that socialist bilge before? 

I have said this many times, but it bears repeating lest we forget: these Dems are literally using their 1964 playbook for domestic policies and their 1972 playbook for foreign affairs: translation big government solves all (War on Poverty/Great Society) and let’s cut-and-run because America is bad (1972 Dem platform).  LBJ and McGovern both live on in the visage above!
