My favorite Clinton troll agrees with Paul Krugman that most of the animus in the current campaign has come from the Obama side of the fence. No doubt I’m a biased observer, but I agree with the voters (including a majority of HRC voters in Kentucky and West Virginia) that the bulk of the nastiness has come from the Clinton side.
Still, I believe in subjecting my opinions to the test of observation. Can anyone name a pro-Obama site with nearly as much sludge on it as Hillaryis44,com, Taylor Marsh, or Larry Johnson’s No Quarter? (No, I’m not talking about anonymous commenters.)
I just looked at Johnson’s site, and the level of frank racism, and frank misogyny directed at Michelle Obama, is really quite stunning. Johnson is a friend (and CIA classmate) of Valerie Plame Wilson, who, along with her husband Joseph Wilson, is a strong Clinton supporter. It’s hard to believe that a phone call from Clinton HQ to Wilson and another from Wilson to Johnson couldn’t get him to at least tone it down. And if HRC is really incapable of calling off her dogs, then what are we to make of her vaunted capacity to lead?
