Intellectual Debate? Impossible. Latest Tactic? Name calling.


Folks, when your enemy has to resort to name calling in order to attack you, it is right then and there that you realize you have won.

The 2008 Presidential race. We thought it could be mature. We thought we could act like adults. We thought we had put all these petty tactics behind us. We thought...we hoped that we would be living in different times right now. A time where intellectual debate triumphs and playground antics are stigmatized.

We knew Hillary Clinton would be a force to be reckoned with, and therefore attacked from all angles. But we also thought that this would be a battle of ideas and philosophies, in which each side ultimately wants America to be great once again, the only difference being how we get there.

But what we are seeing today is in stark contrast to those values and principles that we here at Vote for Hillary Online felt could be a reality.

Folks, there's no battle of ideas here in this race. There's no judgment based upon merits and values. We would like it to be so, but we cannot will that which is out of our hands.

Where am I going with all this?

Take a look at this piece by the Seattle Times. Headline: "If Hillary's a (rhymes with rich), what does that make us?"

I'm not going to post that article's contents on our blog. The gist of the story is that a John McCain supporter asked him "How do we beat the bitch?" Listen, there will always be fanatical supporters that you cannot control. But what did McCain do? He laughed, and began answering the question as if it was understood that in fact Hillary Clinton was a bitch.

Why is this important? So what if the opposition calls Hillary a bitch? I'll tell you why it's important. If there's one thing that has been consistent in this whole presidential race, it's that nobody wants to focus on Hillary's positions, her integrity, and how much of a value she will be to America if elected. This is a diversion tactic. This is telling people "who cares about positions? She's a bitch." It's an attempt to get the American people on board with this negative view of someone's character, in order to completely discredit the actually work that she will be doing, while in office, on behalf of the American people.

This has got to stop. And it has got to stop right now. I'm looking at you Senator McCain.

She is a bitch. You are ranting about fanatical McCain supporters, but what would you call yourself when it comes to Hillary? You are completely obsessed and fanatical and of course a liberal who is a hypocrite!

Thanks! That worked perfectly. I really missed GrowlMail and I'm glad to have it back.
