The most mentally and physically exhausting couple in American politics double down:
Former President Bill Clinton said that Democrats were more likely to lose in November if Hillary Clinton is not the nominee, and suggested some were trying to “push and pressure and bully” superdelegates to make up their minds prematurely.
Bill Clinton did not explain who he was accusing of “covering up” Sen. Clinton’s chances.
“I can’t believe it. It is just frantic the way they are trying to push and pressure and bully all these superdelegates to come out,” Clinton said at a South Dakota campaign stop Sunday, in remarks first reported by ABC News.
Clinton also suggested some were trying to “cover up” Sen. Clinton’s chances of winning in key states that Democrats will have to win in the general election.
” ‘Oh, this is so terrible: The people they want her. Oh, this is so terrible: She is winning the general election, and he is not. Oh my goodness, we have to cover this up.’ “
I am worn down, beaten, broken, and drowning in their never-ending stream of bullshit, so I just don’t have anything to add, as this nonsense speaks for itself. They are, quite simply, trying to poison the well. Feel free to add your own commentary in the comments.
I will, however, point out that for those of you who watched Recount last night, and are wondering why so many normally reasonable Republicans fought so hard and were so bitter and were so ready to assume that the Gore campaign was going to somehow steal the election and manufacture votes in their selected county hand recounts, all I have to say is- this. This is why. Almost nine years of being on the receiving end of Clintonian bullshit is enough to drive anyone insane. They have quite clearly driven me to madness again in just a few months.
That doesn’t, of course, excuse the right-wing bullshit the Clinton’s endured, but it does go a long way to explain why normal Republicans would be driven to exasperation. I can’t imagine why anyone in their right mind would want to deal with this irritating duo, who truly live in their own reality, again.

Leave it to Lanny Davis to come up with the dumbest plan for the Michigan delegates. Seriously, this sort of crap is what the Clinton bloggers are FIGHTING to return to? This plan is such a non-starter it should have been called a modest proposal.
