Quote of the Day

"I've dispatched Hillary to the Middle East to talk about how these countries can transition to new leaders—though, I've got to be honest, she's gotten a little passionate about the subject. These past few weeks it's been tough falling asleep with Hillary out there on Pennsylvania Avenue shouting, throwing rocks at the window."President Obama, hilariously joking (ahem) at the Gridiron Club Dinner last week, about how Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's got her silly little girl panties all in a bunch about what she reportedly feels is the president's insufficient interest in supporting the Arab revolutions that are toppling undemocratic regimes.

Shaker Mod Scott Madin, who gets the hat tip, noted in an email: "I was actually kind of shocked that any president would take shots at any member of their own administration like that." To which I can only add: Yeah.

It really reminds me of that terrible moment during the campaign when Obama would give up only "You're likeable enough," without looking at Clinton save for a sideways glance, after she was asked (incredibly) by a debate moderator how she feels about being unlikable, and she graciously noted how "very likable" Obama is.

Which, of course, was not the only time Obama was snide toward Clinton, and why I disliked him as a person, if not a candidate, during the primaries.

You know, I really wasn't officially in the bag for Clinton during the '08 election, back when everyone from here to Fuckistan and back again was making the accusation, but I sure the fuck am now.
