H. Clinton to Indian-Americans: "Look at me! Near someone that doesn't work at a gas station!"

This is awful... not too long after the "Ghandi works at a gas station" joke, Hillary Clinton is seen mugging for cameras at the 2004 American India Awards. Is this part of a public service settlement for insensitive remarks? You can guarantee that she was there for NO other reason.

This reminds me of a much higher profile "carrier landing" that was much maligned.

Well, except of course that nobody DIED as a result of her actions. But other than that... sure.

How DARE she try to make amends for a past mistake. If only that concept were palatable to Rove and his boy.

I can't think of anyone ever DYING as a result of a photo-op.

Except of course from laughter at this half-hearted attempt at garnering some positive press.

That is pretty far off-topic and incredibly insensitive, LcZ.

But I've come to expect that kind of comment from the angry, thrashing left. I know the majority of you would go to the death for Mrs. Clinton. I'm glad you can trivialize deaths in regards to an awards show photo-op. Very appropriate.

No, I think the point is to juxtapose your attempt to again discredit Hillary when the politicians you would go to the death for are guilty of much worse.

And, face it--you are a minority on this site. About time white, Republican men know how that feels.

I wouldn't go to the death for Hilary Clinton AT ALL. And let's face it, the aircraft carrier may have just been a "photo op" in your opinion, but the well-placed "Mission Accomplished" was intended to be the capper to a little adventure that HAS cost lots of lives. And continues to be costing lives, so maybe the mission wasn't accomplished at all?

It's funny that you're reduced to STILL going after Hilary and then you talk about an "angry, thrashing left." I chuckled as I wrote my response to you.

That's right. Mock the deaths of innocents to illustrate your points. Really, you should feel good about your cause.

your attempt to again discredit Hillary when the politicians you would go to the death for
I have said neither. To my knowledge I have not ever previously commented on Mrs. Clinton, and I can not agree with your personalization of the latter part of the sentence.

"And, face it--you are a minority on this site. "
Also... thank you for bringing your assumptions about me into your ridiculous argument. You are a shining example of the other idiots who espouse one set of beliefs while acting to the contrary.

"[a]nd, face it--you are a minority on this site. [a]bout time white, [r]epublican men know how that feels."

hmmm, so rather than show these wayward souls a better way in the hopes that your example might enlighten them, jrb, you are content to subject them to the same kind of treatment that you find offensive? i would think that instead of perpetuating a cycle of anger one who has experienced mishandling at the hands of a so-called majority would try to move beyond it. but then i guess it is difficult to break through the basic human need for revenge. but it is curious that those who claim to inhabit the higher moral ground in so many other debates would cling so diligently to the low road when it comes to persons who disagree with their views.

all that said, it's rare that i feel anything but love here at bww.com, except on forays onto the main board when i often feel revulsion, pity and an increased incidence of gas.

What makes you think that all of us love Hillary?

I've not been a fan of hers ever since she voted for a needless war.

"Mission Accomplished", huh?

Oh come on... as you yourself have demonstrated LcZ, the OT board is all about vast generalizations and bandwagon ranting. I disagree with the President's public policy often... but you've unknowingly characterized me as a bible thumping maniac.

My comment was mostly in response to the constant whining that some of the conservatives on this board do when the rest of us disagree with you. I'm just saying, "awwww--now you know how it feels".

And, I really won't accept any holier than thou comments from either of you--both of you are known for taking the high and low roads on this site depending on how pissed off you get. "You can dish it out, but you can not take it".

Not holier than thou, really...not constant whining either. I would suggest that the more constant whining is coming from other sources. I'm no better than anyone else here, I know that. I just don't understand the double standard...

Pardon me for a moment, I have a bone to pick with JRB:
Now I'm a conservative ! That's the last straw. The gloves are off. Where do you live? I'm gonna come there kick your [expletive deleted].

Please enlighten me, CK, and explain how this is not one of the vast generalizations you talk about from the "other side of the aisle?"

"But I've come to expect that kind of comment from the angry, thrashing left."

Also, what exactly did you post your not very well argued thread for in the first place if not to provoke a response?

"I think Karen Ziemba is to blame for all of it!!!!!"

More cogent analysis from one of the board's deepest thinkers... accent on the "anal."

Any chance of you disappearing for a few months to "craft" another column, Antho? How about something on the disasterous state of the organic dairy farm in the US today? I understand that many dairy farmers are heavy-set, which you abhor, and there's the connection to Nicole Richie and Paris Hilton from their reality series, which gives you the pop cult hook and vapidity you require. Go to it man! We'll look forward to the completed product sometime in July. See you then!

"your not very well argued thread"
To respond to your "not very well worded" response...
I'll give you the 3rd Grade reading level synopsis... Look at the photo-op! Can you argue that the photo-op and the Gas Station joke aren't somewhat related? If you can tell me that they are not, then I agree this thread did not have a well-worded point.

Was the other senator from NY there? Nope, probably not. He didn't HAVE to be.

I stand by the "angry, thrashing" comment. There is a subset of the democrats and liberals on this board that do nothing but leak hostility and anger into every rational debate. Many never even offer potent comments.

When referring to human beings, use "who" not "that," you silly grammarian!

Again, I ask you, CK, why do you mock her for attempting to make amends for past mistakes? Is it because people from your side never, ever will directly say they made a mistake???? Let's even look at the most trivial recent example, the White House denials over the Letterman clip last week.
