Rick Klein: Yet Another ABC News Whore for Bush and Cheney

Here's a Note for you, Rick: aren't 3,500 American kids dead and counting – plus 45,000 maimed or wounded – enough?

May 29, 2007–Washington (apj.us)–I have to snicker at Rick Klein's genius assessment of this week's (no pun intended) vote by Democrats Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama. Both presidential candidates voted against funding for Mr. Bush's Iraq war.

Klein wrote his prognostication in ABC News's laughable website The Note, a faux DC-insider tip sheet that pretends to give you everything you'll ever need to follow the 2008 elections.

Mr. Klein must be out of his mind to think – along with many of the dimwitted pundits to whom we must listen as they parrot him (or is he aping them?) – that voting against more funds for Mr. Cheney's private desert death trap will cost Senator Clinton any votes now or in the future.

The simple and obvious fact Klein missed (or "neglected" to mention) was that Obama and Clinton are the only two United States Senators with a snowball's chance in hell to gain the Democratic presidential nomination – which means, in reality, that only Clinton has that chance because we live in a nation replete with what the great Vernon Jordan calls "America's dirty little secret: racism."

Whether or not Senator Obama is the greatest thing to hit the boards since Jesus Christ – and he well may be – it will make no difference to the rednecks, farm boys, and white collar kloset Klansmen who overpopulate America.

Obama won't be elected to the presidency simply because he is an African American – shame on you all! And that's the bitter truth.

All you need do is ask the people who worked for Los Angeles' beloved former Mayor Tom Bradley. They will tell you that he polled highest in California when he ran for governor – only to lose to people who can only be described as idiots on the GOP side.

This leaves Klein telling us the Mrs, Clinton alone has now put herself in an awkward position because she was "pushed" to vote against Iraq war funding by liberal activists and John Edwards.

What is this screwball talking about?

Has Klein and the rest of the media already forgotten that the breathtaking Democratic majority in the House and Senate was achieved only because voters thought the Democrats would bail us out of Iraq now?
