Hissy Fit

Wow, talk about losing it. John Aravosis at AMERICAblog lets it fly on Hillary Clinton.

Go away you horrible human being

IT’S NOT CLOSE. YOU FREAKING LOST THE NOMINATION, WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH YOU?

Good God. What is wrong with her? The Clintons and their campaign staff don’t give a damn that they are now hurting our electoral chances in the fall against McCain and against the Republicans in Congress. Their campaign isn’t happening in some vacuum, and they know it. Our candidates can’t fundraise because of her. Obama can’t focus on McCain because of her. Obama is wasting money on HER, rather than spending it on McCain, because of her. EMILY’s List, and AFSCME, and the American Federation of Teachers and others are wasting their members’ money on her now-failed race – money that they could be spending, should be spending, on other real races, races that haven’t already lost. She can’t win, the math says she lost the nomination, but she doesn’t give a damn. She’s going to stay in the race like some spoiled hateful egotistical brat.

Sheesh, what’s next? A YouTube rant like that kid that lost it over Britney Spears?

Regardless of how you feel about Hillary Clinton, this kind of tantrum doesn’t do anybody any good. And not to put too fine a point on it, but contributions to stereotypes are not deductible.
