Hillary Hits Bottom

Filed under: 2008 Election,General — Patterico @ 6:53 am



In a post below, I note how the L.A. Times is portraying Hillary as desperate.

They didn’t know how right they were.

With a week to go until the Texas and Ohio primaries, stressed Clinton staffers circulated a photo over the weekend of a “dressed” Barack Obama.

The photo, taken in 2006, shows the Democrat frontrunner fitted as a Somali Elder, during his visit to Wajir, a rural area in northeastern Kenya.

The senator was on a five-country tour of Africa.

“Wouldn’t we be seeing this on the cover of every magazine if it were HRC?” questioned one campaign staffer, in an email obtained by the DRUDGE REPORT.

Well, we’re seeing photos of HRC in similar local dress in the linked Drudge item. And GWB. And WJC, aka Billy Jeff.

Man. She really is desperate. The debate is gonna be great.

Via Allah, who has analysis.

  1. The picture first appeared in the National Inquirer in it’s February 4 issue. Sorry to disappoint those who want to think that Hillary has been digging in trash cans again. It was at the magazine rack of every grocery store check out in America three weeks ago.

  2. Pssh! HA posters have been perpetuating the Manchurian candidate innuendo about Obama for months now.
    Maybe Obama can get some legal help in suing for defamation…?

  3. I question the timing.

  4. Hillary can’t run a campaign to save her life.

    We’re also seeing now that she has terrible judgment, a monumental sense of entitlement, and a mean streak a mile wide (not that it wasn’t already obvious).

    She’s also a self-centered bitch. Everything is about her. When anyone says something mean about her, she feels it like a thousand needles in her eyeball. But she makes a racist attack on Obama and she can’t even understand why people are disgusted.

    If Hillary was smarter, she would have raised the photo in connection with Obama’s meddling in Kenya’s bloody politics. Then she would at least have plausible deniability that she just wanted to show him in a turban.

    Bonus: for every deranged smear that Hillary uses now, Republicans will get less blame for it if an incident of “undisciplined messaging” later involves the same smear.

  6. Nonsense Daryl, every deranged smear used by Hillary now will be elaborated on by Republicans and used to better effect against Obama later…along with the real issues about him of course but every little bit helps right? The question in my mind is: will McCain try to bolster his own “straight shooter”, “not business as usual” cred by not using such cheap shots, and speaking against those who do?
    It would make Hillary look bad if she wins the nom and might make it harder for Obama to run on his “conciliator” platform.

  7. Has anybody stopped to think how the Kenyans feel about this, for crying out loud?

    Kenya is overwhelmingly Christian, and Quakers outnumber the small Muslim population. They are understandably concerned about Muslim turmoil in neighboring states, and are less enthusiastic about Shari’a than the Arch Dickhead of Canterbury is.

    Having a prominent American come to their country and dress up like a Sudanese slave trader is not exactly the height of diplomatic tact.

  8. What do Jewish democrats think about Obama.
    Do they wonder about Obama’s Muslim past? Oh you betcha.
