Is that a fake texas drawl I detect?

Barack is doing everything backwards too.

(Not sure about the high-heels… have to ask Michelle.)

profitsbeard on February 27, 2008 at 10:29 PM

Is that Gennifer Flowers with her?

Mormon Doc on February 27, 2008 at 10:31 PM

ACK! Big Hair!

Kini on February 27, 2008 at 10:33 PM

Desperate act of a desperate campaign.

Hog Wild on February 27, 2008 at 10:35 PM

Your telling me,Hillary is using this.
This is truly an apt description,Hillary is getting so low
she’s playing handball up the side of a street curb,a little
lower and she would be in the gutter!

I think Ann Richards was more a friend and fellow
Texan to President George W Bush,then she would ever be with Hillary.

Me thinks Hillary is getting very dangerously desperate!

Stay tuned to more of Hillarys greatest hits.

Team Hillary:Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap”!

canopfor on February 27, 2008 at 10:40 PM

Presidential politics is all about the hair, but so is gubernatorial politics. And as I recall George W’s Bush beat Ann Richards’ bush in Texas.

But seriously, is that all she’s got at this point? Weekend at Ann’s beauty parlor. I guess she’s going for the John Edwards vote now that she owns the most presidential hair.

pistolero on February 27, 2008 at 10:42 PM

LOL…Yeah…ok Hillary. Nice, ah, endorsement, from a one term, get nothing done, Governor. In Texas you would have been better off seeking an endorsement from our state animal, the Jackalope. It would have been just as believable.

Limerick on February 27, 2008 at 10:46 PM

That was the only time I’ve ever seen Hilary use some wit
( if ya want to call it that ) and use it rather well.

Texyank on February 27, 2008 at 10:51 PM

Not to go off topic, but … if a Republican had been giving a speech at what was clearly a pulpit in front of what was clearly a church choir, then some church’s 501(c)(3) status would have been threatened on the spot.

WHY do the Dems always get a pass on campaigning at churches but pastors are warned specifically to not discuss politics?

knivek on February 27, 2008 at 11:02 PM

Why does it seem like everytime Hillary makes a joke in her speeches that it seems like she is waiting for the joke to load. I seriously feel like her processor freezes up while it is trying to do the calculations necessary to simulate humor. It’s a gut feeling and hard to describe. Does anyone else feel like that?

Mormon Doc on February 27, 2008 at 11:09 PM

Hillary sees dead people for her campain…….

beachkatie on February 27, 2008 at 11:09 PM

The truth is that I think Americans have collectively decided that the more often the Democrats campaign inside of churches the more likely it is for them to be struck by lightning.

Mormon Doc on February 27, 2008 at 11:09 PM

I laughed so hard I made a mess – because I have noticed that, and not just with jokes. Sometimes, when she feels she’s made a strong point or poignant soundbite, she kinda pauses for half a second and looks sideways with this weird upturn at the corners of her mouth, as though she’s saying “heh. Didja catch that? Pretty good, huh?”
It has amazed me (an Arkansan) for so many years that she is such a horrible speaker. I marvel that all of her handlers over the years haven’t been able to polish this turd even a tiny bit.

shibumiglass on February 27, 2008 at 11:45 PM

Man, that is so low.

kahall on February 27, 2008 at 11:47 PM

Ann wasn’t that popular. The guy she ran against kept shooting himself in the foot and gave the election to her.

BradnSA on February 28, 2008 at 12:04 AM

This proves beyond any doubt that the Clinton campaign will do ANYTHING to get their moron elected. These are desperate times indeed. Digging up the dead and using them in a campaign advertisement is something to behold. I guess next, she will dig up the corpse of Joan of Ark, Eleanor Roosevelt, Amelia Earhart, Mary Madeline O’Hare, Annie Oakley, and Bonnie Parker, to name a few. Oh, don’t forget to dig up Slick Willie’s mother while you are at it too!

BradnSA on February 28, 2008 at 12:04 AM

Yes, Clayton Williams was an idiot. I couldn’t believe he ended up being the Republican nominee in ’90.

I lived under the so called governorship of Ma Richards. She would be more of a liability, to anybody’s campaign, than an asset.

labrat on February 28, 2008 at 1:17 AM

This is serious!!!

Don’t dead people make up a large block of Democrat voters?

landlines on February 28, 2008 at 1:37 AM

That was definitely a fake twang in her voice… how pathetic. And drumming up an implied endorsement from the late Ann Richards??? WTF??!!!

D2Boston on February 28, 2008 at 1:38 AM

Hillary gave her website address in the debate so folks could donate and see more ‘inspiring’ campaign videos like this one!

Just 5 more days until this is over…5…more…days…5…

Yes.

labrat on February 28, 2008 at 2:41 AM

Oh, dead people vote and vote often in elections…especially in Chicago and Florida.

Graysonret on February 28, 2008 at 5:06 AM

Typical.

Zorro on February 28, 2008 at 6:49 AM

Ma Richards was a idiot on a Molly Ivins scale.

If Ronald Reagan and Bruce Lee were alive, Together they would set up a conservative Martial arts school/ House of Pancakes franchise in Banger Maine.

Don’t dead people make up a large block of Democrat voters?

landlines on February 28, 2008 at 1:37 AM

Esp. in Texas just ask LBJ.

TheSitRep on February 28, 2008 at 6:54 AM

About all that Ann Richards will ever be remembered for is that jackass comment she made years ago at the Democratic Convention about George Bush Sr. being born with a silver foot in his mouth. If you call that a legacy, all I can say is that you can have it.

knivek on February 27, 2008 at 11:02 PM

It’s because they’re democrats and it’s a black church. Don’t you know that democrats only make the rules, they don’t have to abide by them.

flytier on February 28, 2008 at 7:47 AM

Sorry she’s dead, but Hilary is making a big mistake here. No one liked her as governor in Texas.

Kevin M on February 28, 2008 at 8:46 AM

Now that he is dead, maybe Sir Edmund Hilary will endorse his namesake,as well. We still have yet to hear from Vince Foster and Ron Brown.

bookman on February 28, 2008 at 9:40 AM

How do you correctly say, “An’ you know what ahm talkin’ ’bout” in Texan? I’m surprised Herself wasn’t dressed in a Dale Evans-style pants suit.

GeneSmith on February 28, 2008 at 11:20 AM

Desperate circumstances require desperate measures. Too bad she has to attempt to get endorsements from the grave.

RMCS_USN on February 28, 2008 at 11:49 AM

Ann Richards was a failed one term governor who never would’ve won in the first place but for the fact that the Texas GOP nominated a lame brain that year.

After 4 years she was run out of town on a rail by W, a man who had never held elective office before.

Labamigo on February 28, 2008 at 12:00 PM

I’m surprised the general public isn’t aware that Richards spent the post Governor years raking in obscene amounts of money as a tobacco lobbyist. Of course the Clintons were pro-tobacco anyway…oh wait….

Daybrother on February 28, 2008 at 12:11 PM

Hillary pandering for the dead votes

Wade on February 28, 2008 at 4:08 PM

Speaking of dead people endorsing a political candidate, I wonder who Keith Richards would endorse since he’s obviously among the walking dead!

Oh and don’t forget, “just say no to drugs” like Keith does!
