"All I Had Was A Little Soup"

The leading contender for the 2008 Democratic nomination collapsed today just before she was to give an address on health care.

Hillary

That'll teach her to accept dinner invitations from Massachusetts senators.

One day she will, and we will.

March of freedom over the past 20 years away from the old Left got you down, Robert?

Yeah... like, hurtling off a bridge in car, her arms wrapped firmly around Ted Kennedy', with George Soros in the trunk.

Oh, and a Howard Dean shaped hole in the grill.

This is fun, people. Add your own!

Having lost control after colliding with Michael Moose, er, Moore.

I'm starting to think this blog might not be the fresh new voice of conservatism it makes itself out to be. People know where to find store-bought partisan vitriol when they want it. You guys ought to be shooting for a different niche.

Viktor Yushchenko had a little soup too, and he looked better than Senator Clinton did in those photos.

I agree about the language.

Would you agree that Kennedy showed a great moral failure in leaving Ms Kopechne to drown? And that, aside from the adultery which was enough to end Gary Hart's career, it's surprising/distressing it did not end his?

"Would you agree that Kennedy showed a great moral failure in leaving Ms Kopechne to drown? And that, aside from the adultery which was enough to end Gary Hart's career, it's surprising/distressing it did not end his?"

I fail to see what Gary Hart has to do with Ted Kennedy, or indeed what any of this has to do with Ms Clinton's collapse. But alright Norman, what the hell: Kennedy showed any number of great moral failures on the night in question. (In fact, my understanding is that Kopechne died of suffocation, as opposed to drowning, which only makes him look worse.) On the other hand, no, it doesn't surprise me that a Kennedy in 1969 would get away with whatever Ted got away with, and quite frankly I don't care enough about it to be "distressed" by it. Do I win anything?

Your original criticism of the post and this site suggests you were more distressed by the gentleman's language than about Kennedy's moral failure, so the answer to your question is no--you don't win anything.

Norman,

You're quite the master debaiter. As you well know, my original comment did not consider Kennedy's moral turpitude (or Dean's campaign, or Soros' eyeglasses) as it wasn't relevant to the only opinion I was attempting to convey -- which is that I find mass-death fantasies involving one's ideological opponents boring. End communication.

You are an expert at starting a debate and declaring it closed. That I've learned from our dialogue on the slippery slope. If you can't stand the heat...

Hey, you two humour-challenged twits, you're interrupting the game.

Either play Robert's game by the rules, or take your debate to a new thread.

Now, Robert, I think it was your play....

Hey, it's Sam the Eagle, dressed as a black hole for humour.
