TB Friday Featuring The Surrender Monkey: Dem Cattle Call

Happy Friday to all! It’s that time of the week again! Do you have an interesting post you want to share with everyone? The official Surrender Monkey of the Democratic Party says to do what the Lefties don’t, since they all have the same talking points: link it

For those who cared there was a Democrat debate last nigh….zzzz…… Sorry, it is even boring writing about it. Be that as it may, it showed a bit about what the Democrats are really offering as presidential candidates, particularly Hillary. Let’s see

As the three leading Democratic candidates continued escalating attacks and counterattacks against one another, Nevada issues mostly took a back seat Thursday in the first presidential debate staged in the Silver State.

But Nevadans proved to be a raucous audience, several times stealing the spotlight by heckling the moderator and sometimes booing attacks on U.S. Sen. Hillary Clinton, who has a substantial lead in polls of Nevada Democrats.

Ah. Now she has the audience protecting her. Of the three major contenders, Obama is the only one who seems capable of dealing with the attacks on his own. Edwards has his wife. And Hillary, well, has everyone else. Yes, she can do some herself, but, this is a woman who has wanted to be president, and has worked towards that moment, for decades. And she needs tons of people to protect her. Could it have anything to do with her being unable to answer unscripted questions?

“This pantsuit, it’s made of asbestos,” Clinton said, when asked by Campbell Brown of CNN about criticisms by her opponents that she is unable to give firm answers to important policy questions.

I like the way Michael Sherer at Salon put it better

7 minutes. Finally, the debate begins. Clinton is asked why she was so lame during the last debate. Does she represent “the politics of parsing,” as one of her opponents charges? Clinton is expecting this. She pulls out a wardrobe joke. “This pantsuit,” she says about the static tweed. “It’s asbestos tonight.” The laughter allows Clinton to duck the question.

That is the Democrat front runner: someone who cannot answer questions. George Bush may not be the best speaker, but, at least he gives the questions a shot. Even about zombies.

The heckling and boo-ing of anyone who attacked Clinton continued. Sherer is wondering, perhaps rightly, if they are Clinton plants, and seriously seems to be considering that there should be an investigation. They also went after Wolf Blitzer of the Clinton News Network, including for giving the other candidates vary limited time to talk. No biggie, since there was little of substance, anyhow.

Check out Michelle Malkin for her take on the debates, plus a slew of TB’s from others.

Update: Not mentioned in this post was the question asked of Hillary by UNLV student Maria Luisa “do you prefer diamonds or pearls?” And now we find out that she wrote on her My Space page that CNN told her to ask that type of question, rather then the one she wanted to ask about the Yucca Mountain nuclear waste depository (which should have been opened about a decade ago), via Marc Ambinder at The Atlantic.

I guess Hillary doesn’t need to plant question: CNN will do it themselves. Of course, you know CNN will not be embarrassed.

    Well Teach talk is cheap……
    But here is how it looks at the 50 week mark with the people who are willing to put their real money up.

    2-1 The favorite Hillary
    6-1 The first Republican Giuliani
    10-1 Romney
    11-1 Obama
    28-1 Paul
    30-1 Gore
    38-1 McCain
    The Democrats are also very heavily favored to retain control of both houses in Congress

    I wish the odds were more even but people just don’t think the Republicans have much of a chance in 2008

    I wouldn’t bet the farm on the dhimmi’s taking the white house or keeping either house of congress. Harry Reid and Nan the Pan have made a laughing stock of the congress and it’s bleeding down or up to other democrats. The historical or hystrical record of ‘do nothing’ is not what the American people (who had a nightmare in 06) expected. We told you, two years of pure comedy is all you would get from the inept leadership of congress. They could be convicted of stupidity in any court in the land.
