Are Clinton Deadenders Really Planted Republican Shills?

Two Clinton dead-enders appeared on Hardball yesterday. It's simply unbelievable to me that any progressive minded person, especially a woman, would vote for John McCain if given the choice of McCain and Obama, even if your feelings were somehow dashed by Clinton losing the primary.

Obama as of late, in the spirit of inclusion, is allowing Clinton and her supporters to conduct a sort of sideshow at the Denver convention to get in touch with that group's inner child. This includes placing Clinton's name in nomination and lots of other post modern feminist activities and events where wearing and article of pink clothing will be probably be mandatory.

"Obama also allowed Hillary supporters to insert an absurd statement into the platform suggesting that media sexism spurred her loss and that “demeaning portrayals of women ... dampen the dreams of our daughters.” This, even though postmortems, including the new raft of campaign memos leaked by Clintonistas to The Atlantic — another move that undercuts Obama — finger Hillary’s horrendous management skills.

Besides the crashing egos and screeching factions working at cross purposes, Joshua Green writes in the magazine, Hillary’s “hesitancy and habit of avoiding hard choices exacted a price that eventually sank her chances at the presidency.”

It would have been better to put this language in the platform: “A woman who wildly mismanages and bankrupts a quarter-of-a-billion-dollar campaign operation, and then blames sexism in society, will dampen the dreams of our daughters". Mareen Dowd NYT

Hardball host David Shuster did a credible job of putting the two hardcore brain dead Clinton axe grinders feet to the fire. One of the questions he raised with PUMA founder Dara Murphy (who acting like she's high on qualudes and/or Obama somehow didn't respond to her let's flirt message over at Match.com) was that she had contributed money to the Republican Party and John McCain in the past.

It maybe unproductive to actually give this story more attention then it deserves, but the video shows what boneheads these Clinton die-hard types really are. In a way I found their performance a cross between comical and desperately pathetic. It also would make a great SNL segment with Amy Poehler as Murphy and Will Farrell as the guy guest. I sincerely doubt that they were every really Democrats to begin with, something that if true, would explain their real motivation is to make trouble for the Democrats at the convention and this fall.
