What the hell is happening?

clinton-obamaasfasfd.jpgAccording to the latest Associated Press survey, apparently Hillary Clinton has a nine point lead over John McCain in a head to head matchup, while Barack and McCain run about even.

Helped by independents, young people and seniors, Clinton gained ground this month in a hypothetical match with Sen. McCain, the GOP nominee-in-waiting. She now leads McCain, 50 percent to 41 percent, while Obama remains virtually tied with McCain, 46 percent to 44 percent.

What’s going on? Can someone tell me where this inexplicable Hillary surge came from? Didn’t she just lie about getting shot at in Bosnia? Isn’t Bill alienating African-Americans?

Has Hillary started saying something new — or is this all Jeremiah Wright and bittergate? Or is Hillary’s anti-elitism rhetoric starting to work? God. Damnit! That Rovian bullshit that Bush pulled on Kerry? It’s working again?

Well, that’s frustrating. I thought, by now, we’d got over the notion that we wanted a president we could have a beer with, because it’s that president who fumbles drunkenly through eight years of service. Motherfuckery.

She's a grinder. And she'll never stop. Her plan apparently is to just keep appearing, and keep pushing whatever angle she can, until everyone's minds give up and consider her the inevitable winner again.

I was reluctant to fully go for Obama before. But even counting the fact that he does politickin' just like Clinton, he says something weekly that makes me believe he's pretty close to his word, and legitimately is in this for the country.

Okay, let me get this straight. Hillary's exaggeration regarding sniper fire is a big deal, but Obama's 20-year relationship with a confirmed anti-Semite is somehow overblown. Got it.
