In the last week and a half, we’ve seen Hilary attack Obama for running a campaign based on “waving [the] magic wand” of rhetoric and speechifying rather than a good, old fashioned campaign based on his ability to defend the country (by which I mean taking the same approach to national security as General Ripper). She’s an idiot. Not just because her campaign is, you know, mostly words too, or because her record isn’t exactly one to run on either, or because it reinforces that stupid stereotype that women nag and whine. No, she’s an idiot because speechifying is far more important than Obama’s history in the Senate.
