Anti-Hillary "1984" Ad

This is one of the funniest mashup videos I've seen in awhile. The Apple geek in me certainly appreciates how well done it is.

I've been called a Hillary fan, but that's not really true. I think she's infinitely more intelligent, capable, rational, qualified, and sane than anyone in this current administration. I have some concerns about her, but I just don't hate her like some. I guess that makes me a fan. *shrug*

I've said for many months, that I hope the Hillary haters work fulltime from now until Nov. 2008. I hope they focus every ounce of their energy on their efforts.

She's as strong as anyone runnung. Will she win the nomination? Time will tell. Does she have barnacles? Plenty. Can she lead the nation well?

Damned straight she can.

That she can so enflame the hard right this far out, is proof enough for me, that she'd be a strong candidate. They're scared she'd win.

They're scared in part because she's a strong woman, and that always scares those types. They're also scared because eight years of morally bankrupt leadership is difficult to defend, especilly with this crop of morobound candidates they've put up.

The only ones who'd be strong against the Dems in fall 2008 are McCain and Gulliani, and look what the far right is doing to them. If either survives, they'll be badly bruised.

If they'd re-direct their anti-Hillary efforts, into finding a strong candidate, I'd be scared. But they won't Hating and trashing someone is so muhc easier, after all.

Concern Troll!

I'm calling the maker of that vid out, who I'm sure was a right-winger. Because, really, those quotations from hillary are hardly orwellian in and of themselves. And only conservatives seem to think that she's trying to become the next Big Sister. Liberals have had too much real Orwell with the entire government to entertain the idea that Hillary is going to be worse than Bush in terms of abuse of executive power.

blah! Garbage. I am sure they could have found better Hillary quotes if the had tried.

Did you see the SF Chronicle article about the ad?

"But this time, the woman is wearing an iPod -- and has her candidate's slogan on her chest. And the Big Brother -- whose image she defiantly smashes with a wave of her sledgehammer -- is Clinton, the Democratic presidential front-runner...

"That theme -- reflecting a generational change in the relationship between media, politics, candidates and voters -- suggests that 'Hillary 1984' could have the iconic power with the 21st century political generation that another classic political ad called 'Daisy' represented to Baby Boomers, says Leyden. That 1964 spot for President Lyndon Johnson -- featuring images of a child plucking a daisy, which morphed ominously into a nuclear mushroom cloud -- battered GOP presidential candidate Sen. Barry Goldwater because it, too, portrayed 'a shattering of the whole world' in both political leadership, and media."

Count the votes -- including the Superdelegate votes -- then we'll talk about if this is all just a waste of bandwidth.

Yeah, she's strong. Love of the appearance of strength got us Shrub and a quagmire in Iraq, nuclear proliferation, and all the problems of an imperial presidency that it will take decades to dig ourselves out of.

Give me the sort of strong of an Atticus Finch instead -- the sort of strong that stands for something worth standing for.
