The invisible elephant in the 'hood

http://www.JewishWorldReview.com | Hillary Clinton and her peeps are lighting the fuse of disaster. She's downright derisive of Barack's experience and leadership, yet has extended her hand to Obama to be her second in command, irony not lost on Barack, or the voters.

As Barack gently reminded Mrs. Clinton, he leads with delegates and popular vote, while winning twice as many states. He postulated if he was so unqualified, why would Hillary want him on her ticket, a mere heartbeat away?

Then Hillary's newly resigned campaign finance "volunteer" and self admitted unqualified Vice Presidential candidate, Geraldine Ferraro opined. She claimed Obama took advantage of his race at the expense of that poor old white woman, Hillary.

Man, I'm confused. Weren't Republicans supposed to be the evil racists?

Obama seemed perplexed as well. He snidely reminded the world of his terrific edge by postulating that the book of running for the White House proscribed being dark of skin with an African/Muslim moniker, Barack Hussein Obama. (Quit whining.get over it! IT'S HIS NAME for G-d's sake!)

There's a lot of testosterone in the Clinton marriage, too bad none of its Bill's

If you think this intentional confusion and infusion of race bothers the Clintons, there's a bridge I want to sell you. Don't think for a moment this isn't intentional. I believe what Geraldine said is what Hillary and Bill believes. Not only that, Ferraro said essentially the same about Jesse Jackson when he ran for president, twenty years ago. She must have shared that line with Bill, who reiterated the theme in South Carolina.

The Clintons deem they can steal the election with made up rules, arguments, deceits, or back-room deals. They argue that they triumphed in all the "important" states. Mrs. Clinton claims Michigan and Florida, primaries Hillary and the rest of the Dem candidates agreed wouldn't count because of their misbehavior in choosing the wrong date. (Now there's some brilliant political strategy, but that's another column.) The Clintons say their momentum is better than Obama's.

They belittle Barack as not ready for prime time, advertising scenes of 3 AM phone calls, implying that Hillary was answering that phone while she was in the White House as first lady. She may have a point, having been subject to many wee hour calls about the whereabouts of her wandering husband.

You don't have to be a carpenter to know when things aren't on the level

What it comes down to is this.

If Barrack Hussein Obama goes to the summer Democratic Convention with roughly the same lead he has now and has the nomination stolen from him, we'll not only see the destruction of the Democratic Party, (a good thing) but riots in black neighborhoods of America. (A bad thing) It'll make the '68 Dem Convention riot in Chicago look like a Girl Scout Jamboree in Grant Park.

And for what?

The transparent narcissism of the most power grubbing people in the universe, Bill and Hillary Clinton.

Why, I feel like breaking out in song (again). This to the tune of "Summer in the City", by the Lovin' Spoonful.

A one, a two, a three, everybody HIT IT!

Hot town, summer in the city, back door deals gettin' dirty and gritty

Voted down, isn't it a pity, can't seem to find a delegate that's shifty

All around people feelin' real teed, walking the 'hood gettin' hot at Hill's greed


If Barrack gives in, it's a different world. He can be my veep. Then we can whirl

Come-on come-on we'll dance all night

If it gets to Denver you'll never win this fight

And oh, don't you know it's a pity, I'll steal it and you'll be toast by fifty

In the summer, in the city.in the summer in the city.

Note to Republicans: Show the elephant in a good light. Open your tent and welcome those black Americans to the real party of opportunity for all.

Maybe, just maybe, the rest of the country will follow.
