Advice from an expert on dysfunctional

Former National Security Advisor to President Jimmy Carter, Dr. Zbigniew Brezinski, said the following on Meet the Press-

If [Hillary Clinton] was vice president, there's at least a high risk that it will be a dysfunctional presidency because in the executive office of the president, across the street from the White House, there would be a government in exile and also a government in waiting. And that wouldn't create a very good atmosphere.
I agree. Obama would be insane to pick Clinton as his running mate. I been saying that for at least three months.

And let's not forget that Dr. Brzezinski is, at last report, one of Obama's foreign policy advisers.

This is NOT what I like to think of when I think of "The Spirit Of '76."

Excuse me but what comment are you talking about? Clay was referring to the following-

"Michele and Hillary jockeying for alpha female and poor Barack having to
try to placate them both."

That was written by DaveD not me. Read the post before making dumb remarks.

I think I'm sensing a bit of "sarchasm" here -- the gap between a sarcastic remark, and the comprehension of the listener.

I suspect Clay was being sarcastic when he made his remark, and ODA and Bill tossed in their own responses (ODA with a bit of their own sarcasm) after missing it in Clay's.

Or Clay could just be that stupid. It's a possibility.

Clay:

Well, it is a possibility. Just not about all things at all times. However, in this matter, I am absolutely brilliant. Let me boil it down for the unenlightened: If any statement places a negative adjective in the immediate proximity of Obama's name (or negatively misuses his name: Obauble, Obamessiah, for examples) it is racist. In the case of DaveD, it was unfortunate that he placed poor adjacent to Barack, making his statement an indisputably racial denigration.

Oh, one other thing: Although it is his middle name, the use of Hussein in the same sentence as Barack or Obama is grievously racist. I mean, you know what you're trying to do in that instance.

Just trying to help everyone get through the next few months. If you follow these simple rules, we'll have no problems. Any questions?

I thought the same thing as SCSI. If the word "lawn-" had been attached to it, I think there would be a stronger case.

Clay, people do use his middle name to create negative connotation. When Ann Coulter says it over and over again, she does so knowing that the morons that pay attention to her associate Hussein (probably one of the most common names in the world) with evil brown people. Did people use Kerry's middle name very much?

Whether or not you're a racist (not, I believe), you can't pretend that "Hussein" has the same significance as, I dunno, "William"; or that that significance has nothing to do with race/ethnicity.

It is his name.

hyperbolist:

You're just being a child. I know it's his name. I also know that conservatives/Republicans/fascists (e.g. Coulter) love to use it so much because of who/what the dregs of their base typically associate it with--specifically, Saddam Hussein, or more generally, Muslims.

Are you denying that? Do you really think Coulter et al (you?) aren't just race-baiting when they say Barry Hussein, or B. Hussein Obama? That's all it is. He has no more in common with terrorists than John McCain does, yet this is obviously a childish attempt at persuading people to the contrary.
