Hillary Clinton has lost her mind

She compares last January's Democratic primary in Florida to the recent Presidential election in Zimbabwe.

Desperate to get attention for her cause to seat Florida and Michigan delegates, Hillary Clinton compared the plight of Zimbabweans in their recent fraudulent election to the uncounted votes of Michigan and Florida voters saying it is wrong when "people go through the motions of an election only to have them discarded and disregarded."

"We're seeing that right now in Zimbabwe," Clinton explained. "Tragically, an election was held, the president lost, they refused to abide by the will of the people," Clinton told the crowd of senior citizens at a retirement community in south Florida.

"So we can never take for granted our precious right to vote. It is the single most important, privilege and right any of us have, because in that ballot box we are all equal. You're equal to a billionaire. You're equal to the president, every single one of us."

Dr. Steven Taylor at Poliblog, one of the most reasonable people in the conservative blogosphere, sums up Hillary's comments far better than I can.

This is not a healthy notion to be sewing in the minds of the citizenry. Clinton know full well the history of the situation in Florida and Michigan and supported the decisions at the time, and now she is trying to rewrite history to serve her own narrow political interests. That is irresponsible, shameful and is the kind of thing that indicates that she isn't fit to be the president.
Chris Matthews of MSNBC was talking up Hillary as Obama's choice for VP. Seeing the way Hillary has been conducting herself and her many instances of poor judgment, why would anyone want her a heartbeat from the Presidency? Unity or no unity, a person showing signs of being deranged has no business on the national ticket of any political party.

Hell that lets out just about the entire democratic party.

As such Hillary will be on the ticket in Nov. By hook, crook or 9 mm. ANd if Obama gets the nomination which I doubt I wouldnt bet money on him completing a full term.

Hillary Clinton herself is now openly comparing the Democratic Party to Mugabe and his thugs. Let her.

COgirl:

Sadly, retired military, I have had the same feeling that you expressed in your last sentence. Don't get me wrong, I'm not an Obama or Clinton supporter, I've just often felt that he might have a target on his back.

But, back to the post, I've followed the situation in Zimbabwe and Hillary is indeed nuts to compare the FL and MI situation to that country. She did agree to abide by DNC rules and she is clearly back-pedaling because that's the biggest chance she has left to get the nomination.

I think she's still duking this out because she just can't believe that she's going to lose the nomination to the empty suit that is Obama. And I have to tell you that if push came to shove, I'd much rather have Clinton than Obama for the good of the country if McCain can't win.

Scrapiron:

If the people of Fl and Mi who voted have their vote thrown out, then just what is the difference in the democrat party process and any dictatorship in the world? I don't live in either state but the entire process stinks just like everything Howling Howie has been involved in. Soon we will have 99% of the people voting and all the votes will go to the pre-selected dic head tator. Don't most, if not all communist use this tactic.

An old argument: the knave or the fool.

SPQR:

Scrapiron, your comment does not make sense. The DNC set up a system of what order primaries are to be done on the calendar, and the state legislatures of Florida and Michigan unilaterally decided to ignore that to make themselves more important.

That has nothing to do with dictatorships.

jdb:

The whole thing has gotten old. Her supporters are talking about sexism. I really enjoy liberal white women. They like to talk about how women hit a glass ceiling, that same ceiling they broke through when they receive the right to vote, thats right, white women only. I could go on, Salaries for attorneys in descending order: White men, white women, black men, black women. Its all very said.

The reality is that she is not good enough, at least this year, to earn the nomination. What is really sad is that a normal person would by this point, have become humble. Hilary has simply become irrational.

Did he really type "sewing?... (Below threshold)

Did he really type "sewing?" The word is "sowing" as in seed. Hard to believe it's a typo when the "e" and the "o" are so far apart in the QWERTYverse.
But I am a needless, heedless pedant.

COgirl:

I think true equality comes when you can win or lose on an even playing field. The dem playing field could not be more even than this.

Does this suggest that it's now time to do away with entitlements?

By that I meant entitlements to jobs, quotas, eeoc preferential treatment.

Esther:

I am considering this article an insults to a person who won the popular democrat votes and for the crazy party rules, She hasn't YET the nomination. Please don't take me wrong, I think your passion is not good to create public opinion. Have a great memorial day weekend.

cathars:

clinton is raving mad. she has no business comparing american elections to zim elections.she has never set foot in zim. i am here in zim, i fought to remove white domination in zim from 1975 to 1979 and we will never allow a white man or his proxy to rule this country. they overcame our ancestors in 1896 through the barrel of the gun, we forced them to negotiate after a protracted struggle in which thousands of our people were killed by ian smith's illegal settler regime. we shall never acquiesce to the machinations of the british or americans. robert mugabe represents the last bastion of resistance against capitalism and neo-colonialism.this fight is not just between mugabe and britain, but between the formerly colonised people and the colonisers. zimbabwe will never be a colony again.no american or briton has the right to interfere or dictate what happens in zim. zim is our country stay out of it if you are not zim.aluta continua. the struggle continues until final victory.
