MAKE HER STOP

"Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton defended staying in the Democratic nominating contest on Friday by pointing out that her husband had not wrapped up the nomination until June 1992, adding, “We all remember Bobby Kennedy was assassinated in June in California.”

Her remarks were met with quick criticism from the campaign of Senator Barack Obama, and within hours of making them Mrs. Clinton expressed regret, saying, “The Kennedys have been much on my mind the last days because of Senator Kennedy,” referring to the recent diagnosis of Senator Edward M. Kennedy’s brain tumor. She added, “And I regret that if my referencing that moment of trauma for our entire nation and in particular the Kennedy family was in any way offensive.”

Can't someone - anyone - shut this woman up?

Can't someone get this woman out of the campaign - fast?

Referencing an entire nation's trauma, and a family that has endured more trauma than the rest of us can even begin to imagine, so as to rationalize and and justify one's own narcissism is sick. The woman needs help - bad, soon, now.

Clinton remark on Robert Kennedy's killing stirs

Update

Excellent link, via Cube - The Blog - noting that Hillary first made this distasteful reference way back at the beginning of March, but it seems that no-one noticed the first time around.

Hillary has again been mis-remembering things, with hubby's campaign pretty much won by March, not June, and Robert Kennedy only entering the race very late, a short four weeks prior to his assassination. So much for precedents.

  1. You are echoing my own statements. I can only add that the "media- acclaimed-(before Obama)-smartest woman-in-the-world" just made the most stupid gaffe imaginable. How is this possible? Methinks that, as I have thought all along, she isn't all that smart and she's quite dishonest, as well.

  2. What she said is so revolting that no form of apology or explanation can cover her tracks Cube.

    Beggars belief that one woman could be so stupid and her "advisers" still won't pull her out of the race.

    I'm figuring she can't possibly get lower than this, but she's setting new standards everyday, so who knows what offensive drivel will come out of her mouth next week.

  3. I can't explain her behavior. It's appalling, to say the least, yet, like the proverbial 800 pound gorilla, no one can tell her she can't sit at the presidential table.

    The Clintons and their overarching greed have worried me for a long time. I'm glad that finally others are beginning to see what a cancer they are upon the political landscape.

    Obama isn't a prize either. The democrats have less than zero on their side.
