The Spell of Desperation
So, Hillary Clinton has typed up an 11th hour open letter to Barack Obama, essentially demanding that he appeal to the Democratic leadership so that it might allow primary votes in the heavily Clinton-centric states of Florida and Michigan to be counted. The entire thing -- the tactic, the notion of the letter itself, the hope that Obama won't recognize a zero-sum game when he sees one -- is ridiculous on every level. But what's really eye-catching -- just laughably so -- is that Hillary apparently doesn't know that there's no such word as "untaken" and that publicly isn't spelled "publically."
If you ever needed proof that Hillary Clinton isn't all that different from the president we have right now, there it is.
Yes, I'm one of those elitists -- fuck you.
