Divisive? Nah, this primary is strengthening the Dems ...
Posted by: McQ on Saturday, March 22, 2008

Or so the story goes as Democrats whistle while passing the graveyard. The latest examples of how this primary season is strengthening the party.

James Carville on the Richardson endorsement of Obama:
“Mr. Richardson’s endorsement came right around the anniversary of the day when Judas sold out for 30 pieces of silver, so I think the timing is appropriate, if ironic,” Mr. Carville said, referring to Holy Week.
That's certainly a "unifying" quote, isn't it?

And, of course on the other side of it, here's Gen. Merrill McPeak calling Bill Clinton another Joe McCarthy:
McPeak, a former chief of staff of the Air Force and currently a co-chair of Obama's presidential campaign, said that sounded like McCarthy.

"I grew up, I was going to college when Joe McCarthy was accusing good Americans of being traitors, so I've had enough of it," McPeak said.
Clinton's alleged unpardonable McCarthyite quote?
"I think it would be a great thing if we had an election year where you had two people who loved this country and were devoted to the interest of this country," said Clinton, who was speaking to a group of veterans Friday in Charlotte, N.C. "And people could actually ask themselves who is right on these issues, instead of all this other stuff that always seems to intrude itself on our politics."
I don't know - sounds more like something Rodney King would say than Joe McCarthy.

As an aside, who do you think is considered the worst in the Democratic rogue's gallery - Judas or McCarthy?

Seems to me that this extended Democratic primary has nerves frayed, feelings on sleeves and giving the other guy the benefit of the doubt something to be reserved for some future election cycle. And, of course, unless both campaigns take a deep breath and step back, will only get worse as the weeks grind on.

But that's not going to happen. So look for more of this and, if you're John McCain, flowers and thank you cards may be appropriate.

For anyone else, do they deliver popcorn by the truckload?

Mister Carville’s statement suggests to me a sense of entitlement and privilege within the Democratic Party on the part of the Clintons and their affiliates that I find quite distasteful.

I’ve hated Merrill McPeak since he was my boss at 12th Air Force. I called my old CO, Col. Courtney Mank at Wright-Pat when McPeak retired as COSAF. He was as giddy as I was. Or, really, everybody else was.

I didn’t think I could dislike Merrill McPeak any more than I did.

I was wrong.

For 5 years I served in the Pentagon under that buffoon and I hate to admit that at times he made me ashamed I was associated with the Air Force. I cannot count the number of times when attending meetings with representatives of the other services that all I could do was hang my head as they reminded me of the buffoon we had for a leader.

If this is the best Obama can do for his staff, then maybe the Reverend Wright can come back and bring some credibility to his staff.

Interesting to me, the symbolism involved with the Snake invoking Judas being paid off. Wasn’t it the snake that dealt so handily with that trailer park trash, Eve?
