Can there be any doubt that the current conservative love-fest for Hillary is a deliberate ploy to get the weaker candidate to take the nomination? When Rush Limbaugh, Ann Coulter, Bob Cunningham, Sean Hannity and yes Bill Kristol all show their love for a Clinton you know something’s up.
But I do think I can speak for most of my fellow right-wingers when I say this: We once looked forward with unambivalent glee to the fall of the house of Clinton. Many of us still do. But we also see the liberal media failing to give Hillary Clinton the respect she deserves. So, since we conservatives believe in giving credit where credit is due, it falls to us to praise Hillary.
The fact is Hillary Clinton has turned out to be an impressive candidate. She has consistently defeated Barack Obama when her back was to the wall — first in New Hampshire, then in several big primaries on Super Tuesday, on March 4 in Ohio and Texas, and then last week in Pennsylvania, where she was outspent by almost 3 to 1, yet won handily.
Shame to the NY Times for hiring a mouthpiece for neocon propaganda. Icky. Are we really supposed to believe that these people somehow feel sympathy that Hillary has been unfairly disrespected by the media (which for the record I do not believe; hello? Rev. Wright??)? All these wingnuts did in the 90s was play the media against the Clintons. The odd thing is that Hillary’s main platform is that she wants to take on these ‘foes’, and now these are the very people supporting her nomination. It’s all very strange and messed up, no?
