OK,'re making this personal now

From MM's syndicated, fascist column...

Many will point to Hillary’s watery-eyed performance at a Portsmouth rally on Monday as a watershed moment. Down in the polls and facing imminent defeat, the erstwhile anti-Tammy Wynette turned on the spigot and played damsel in distress: “It’s not easy, and I couldn’t do it if I didn’t passionately believe it was the right thing to do. You know, I have so many opportunities from this country. I just don’t want to see us fall backward, you know?”

The steely voice — infamous for uttering profanities at staffers, state troopers and her Secret Service detail, bellowing at the Bush administration and Rush Limbaugh, and imitating a fiery Southern drawl — turned drippy: “You know, this is very personal for me. It’s not just political; it’s not just public. I see what’s happening, and we have to reverse it.” Insert heartfelt pauses and choke-ups as directed.

My dear, pleathered, fascist MM...don't even begin to bring out the Southern card. Do you know how many of your candidates play that hand? Let me see...I already posted about Freddie counting on the South for his impending comeback, and Huckabee's speech tonight was almost COMPLETELY focused on the similarities between New Englanders and Deep Southerners. If sadness results in a slight drawl while tearing up/speaking, I'm sure you'd even be charged with faking a Southern heritage...assuming that you've ever been sad or teared up.

There...I'm done for the night.
(Oh, one PS...who says erstwhile? Reminds me of the Coultergeist trying to use old English words in her columns to disguise her intoxication.)
