Pissing In The Well

We dislike being so indelicate. Some Democrats are so very well-mannered.  However, this is an important learning moment.

The Senator from Connecticut is sure to object to our lack of finesse, our tastelessness.

Handsome Johnny from McMansion, and the Governor from New Mexico, will sniff at us for being so vulgar as to discuss political calculation.

The nutroots will rush for appropriate quotes from Foucault, Dawkins and Derrida. They will dust off their Lakoff to lecture about their “memes” and their “frames” – concepts they have no real-world knowledge of.

While the Big Blogs and others conjoin with “memes” and “frames” and other such rot let’s discuss the concept of pissing in the well.

“Pissing in the well” is also known as “spitting in the punchbowl”, “poisoning the wellwater”, and other, much more graphic, verbiage. The reason to “poison the well” is so that water cannot be drawn from it. The person who poisons the well does so because they will derive some advantage from doing so. In most cases the person who poisons the well has a hidden supply of water and by poisoning the well deprives an opponent from having water. Sometimes the idea is to merely deprive use of the wellwater.

An associated concept is that of a blind person in a fight with a sighted person who shoots out the lightbulb in order to even the chances of winning the fight.

Yesterday, Hillary upset the Big Blog memers and framers when she said

“It’s a horrible prospect to ask yourself, ‘What if? What if?’ But if certain things happen between now and the election, particularly with respect to terrorism, that will automatically give the Republicans an advantage again, no matter how badly they have mishandled it, no matter how much more dangerous they have made the world. So I think I’m the best of the Democrats to deal with that as well.”

Was Hillary right? (1) Is Hillary the best person to deal with potential terror threats or attacks? (2) Will Ripublicans have an automatic advantage “again, no matter how badly they have mishandled it, no matter how much more dangerous they have made the world?”

The first question is easy to answer: Yes, Hillary is the best person to deal with potential terror threats or attacks. As we pointed out yesterday Hillary is viewed by Americans and the world as “tough” not weak. Terrorists and enemies of the United States remember Hillary’s clear warning as a deterrent “If we are attacked, and we can determine who is behind that attack, and if there are nations that supported or gave material aid to those who attacked us, I believe we should quickly respond” Edwards and Obama have signaled confusion and have “stumbled on a few occasions, particularly on how to respond to any new terrorist attacks.”

What about the contention by Hillary that has given Big Blogs, PINOs and Naderites the vapors: Will Ripublicans have an automatic advantage “again, no matter how badly they have mishandled it, no matter how much more dangerous they have made the world?”

Hillary opponents, whether out of desperate opportunism or genuine disagreement, argue first that we should not discuss such a topic in the context of domestic politics and/or that the Ripublicans and Bush are so very very discredited that Americans will actually think rationally in case of a terrorist threat or worse, an actual terrorist attack in the United States, just before the elections.

Will Americans react rationally in the face of fear by putting the blame where it belongs – on Bush and Ripublicans?

Many on the Big Blogs, PINOs and Hillary opponents have forgotten the many “terror alerts” before the 2004 elections. They forget the massive television coverage and the gripping fear many Americans FELT. Fear trumps rationality at least in the short run and only a Democratic candidate who prepares for such an eventuality can beat fearmongering revolving around terror threats, let alone an actual terror strike, close to an election.

Here is what Kerry said about the in retrospect bland Bin Laden video which came out just before the 2004 election:

“US Democratic Senator John Kerry says a video message from Osama Bin Laden sealed his defeat in a presidential race dominated by the 9/11 attacks.

Mr Kerry told NBC TV his opinion poll lead over President George W Bush fell away after the tape was broadcast.

He said national security was the decisive issue in the November 2004 poll, won eventually by President Bush.

Osama Bin Laden’s video, shown days before the vote, urged Americans to back neither Mr Bush nor Mr Kerry.

[snip]
“I believe that 9/11 was the central deciding issue in this race,” he said.

He said the impact of Bin Laden’s message was evident by the dent in his ratings that followed its appearance.

“We were rising in the polls up until the last day when the tape appeared. We flat-lined the day the tape appeared and went down on Monday

We wish that Kerry would have talked about the many “terror alerts” well before the 2004 election. We wish that Kerry had prepared the American people for the fear they would feel in case of a Bin Laden tape just before the election. We wish that Kerry has “pissed in the well” so that Ripublicans could not have used fear and “national security” arguments against him. We are sure Kerry wishes he had spoken out clearly and repeatedly about fear and terror threats and alerts.

Polls show the Democrats have closed the “national security” gap between Ripublicans and Democrats. Democrats cannot allow that national security gap to return. Democrats cannot hide from the “terror” issue nor from Ripublican exploitation of fear. Hillary is taking the fear out of the issue by talking about it.

We have nothing to fear but fear itself.

  1. Anyone else notice that there are lots of dead links on HillaryHub.com? The main/center article is a dead link, even. I sent in an email to the site yesterday, alerting them, but so far no fix… :/

  2. Hey y’all, I couldn’t get the main link on hillaryhub.com to work. But all the others seemed to do ok. I think the article that talked about Hillary’s healthcare plan was either taken down or you have to register. It worked the other day, however. I am working on a piece right now for this dailycrap business. –mollyj

  3. Oh, and i “like pissing in the well” (that’s a good ole sayin'” AND it was an excellent article. I am glad you brought up postmodernism. Because one things pomo’s hate is context. And if you see the context of the quote you understand. –mollyj

  4. here is the link to the aarp article.

    BTW, Obama is not attending the aarp forum (september 20) because he is too busy to talk to those darn seniors.

    We hope Edwards attacks all lobbyists again. The aarp lobbys extensively. Wonder if Edwards will launch an attack on aarp, those mean lobbyists. The YearlyKooks won’t be there to support him. Let’s see Edwards attack lobbyists on Sept 20.

  5. Hey y’all where is the link to the video of Hillary in New Hamp yesterday? It gave more context to the quote? thanks, mollyj

  6. GOOD GRIEF !

    Obama Names Republicans He’ll Work With

    KEY BISCAYNE, Fla. – Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama often says he will be a candidate that will bring both parties together and Saturday he named a few of the Republicans he would reach out to if elected. “There are some very capable Republicans who I have a great deal of respect for,” Obama said in an interview with The Associated Press. “The opportunities are there to create a more effective relationship between parties.”

    Among the Republicans he would seek help from are Sens. Richard Lugar of Indiana, John Warner of Virginia and Tom Coburn of Oklahoma, Obama said.

    ~~~

    Just a FEW highlights of Senator Coburn:

    * Coburn – Minimum Wage Increase Will Hurt Workers

    An increase in the minimum wage is “unfair to workers and, in many cases, it will be harmful to the very people it is supposedly designed to help,” according to Sen. Tom Coburn (R-OK)

    * Coburn Longs For the Return of DDT

    Sen. Tom Coburn (R-OK) has “blocked a resolution to honor environmental author Rachel Carson on the 100th anniversary of her birth,” saying that her warnings about environmental damage have “put a stigma on potentially lifesaving pesticides” such as DDT.

    * Coburn Opposes AmeriCorps

    President Bill Clinton created AmeriCorps in 1993 “as a kind of domestic counterpart to the Peace Corps.” Since then, more than 200,000 Americans have served in AmeriCorps, providing volunteer assistance most recently in tornado-devasted Greensburg, KS, where they were among the first volunteers dispatched to the area. Seventy-two percent of volunteers return to work in their communities after their service with AmeriCorps ends.

    Sen. Tom Coburn (R-OK), however, would rather gut the program. He introduced an amendment in 2006 to kill a proposal to fund the Corporation for National and Community Service, AmeriCorps’ umbrella organization, which would have expanded their volunteer base in post-Katrina New Orleans.

  7. Lord have mercy. It’s a long time to 09. What I want to know is how is this issue in Florida going to affect Hillary’s campaign? –mollyj

  8. Why is Obama waiting? Why can’t he get these 3 Rips to support Dem plans to get out of Iraq now?

    John Warner will probably retire when his term is over in 2008. He has only raised $500 in the first quarter and $71K in the 2nd quarter of which $60K came from PACS.

    UPDATE: here’s more on coburn:
    http://wonkette.com/politics/tom-coburn/

    Republican primary voters, meet your new nut: It’s Senator Tom Coburn from the great state of Oklahoma! Here are some highlights of Coburn’s brave career:

    He is very much anti-abortion, but he sort of enjoys sterilizing women without their consent.

    Speaking of women, did you know they are much healthier with fake tits?

    He boldly stood up for the beloved, innocent insecticide DDT when the libtards wanted to honor some psycho who helped get it banned!

    “Lesbianism is so rampant in some of the schools in Southeast Oklahoma that they’ll only let one girl go to the bathroom. Now think about it.”

  9. Oh Lordy,

    I forgot about that horrible quote of Tom Coburn’s about Lesbianism being rampant in the Oklahoma schools (mercifully). Looks like OBAMA has found his soulmate.

    The KOS comments have been so vitriolic about Hillary’s discussion of the GOP advantage on terrorism. They completely contradict their own rants from 2004 when the terror alerts popped up on our TV SCREENS reminding everyone to “be afraid.”

    I am now an officially registered member of KOS (no longer just a lurker) and as of next week, I can write a pro-Hillary diary there. Any suggestions on the topic I should select? 🙂

  10. OMG and even the headline on MYDUD is “Hillary Steps in POO”….LOL. If John Edwards had said the EXACT Same comments the FAR LEFT on the BLOGS would be rejoicing like they did when Edwards made his comments about Lobbyists.

    I think Hillary’s comments were too nuanced for the FAR LEFT. Maybe she should stick with one syllable words and primer ideas so it doesnt go over their heads.

  11. For any Oprah fans out here
    —————————-
    Bill Clinton is going to be on Oprah on Monday. I don’t care for Oprah but since she supports Obama it would be interesting to watch Bill in her show. I guess he will mostly speak about his work in Africa. But, Hillary has to figure in there!

  12. Sandy,
    Far left are a bunch of losers. Let them name any one of their candidates who have won the election? Never! Hillary speaks for all Americans but for the fringe elements like far left or far right!

  13. So BOMBA’s got no time for lesbians or elders. guess he wouldn’t want me on his staff. –mollyj

  14. Molly,

    On which blog did you publish your diary? I would love to read and recommend it. Can you link it here?

  15. Molly!!

    That is a terrific diary! It was well articulated and personal, and enjoyable. I recommended it and commented on it. Good job!!!

  16. Oh thank you, Sandy. I just want to do everything i can to help Hillary. And I wish there was more going on in my state. If I was in better health and could skip out of town for a few weeks just to go somewhere and help the campaign. It’s great what you’re doing in California. You made my day –mollyj.

  17. Great post admin, and so true.

    So what should we make of this one: “Iraqi Prime Minister Says Sens. Levin, Clinton Should ‘Come to Their Senses'”

    Good? Bad? Meaningless?

    abcnews.go.com/International/WireStory?id=3525001&page=1

  18. BTW, does anyone know how we’ll address Hillary when she becomes president?

    Mrs. President, Ms. President, Madam President?

    I like Madam best, isn’t this what they called Albright whe she was UN Ambassor?

  19. Isn’t it possible Levin and Clinton made their comments to get Maliki to act. Maliki hasn’t done a thing to unify Iraq, and he’s completely not even handed with the Sunni’s. Maybe they were issuing a wake up call.

  20. maybe so MJ, I kind of like that thought, at least that would show they are in control, and know what they are doing.

    Psymac, I think it would be Madame President, Mrs President can be sexist in my view, what if someone comes along or if Hillary hadn’t been married? Ms President? I have heard Madame and believe that is what it will be.

  21. Great Article from the “Concord Monitor”;

    Rivals are wrong about Clinton’s experience

    Monitor editor

    ——————————————————————————–
    August 26. 2007 12:01AM

    R
    ivals have been seeking to undermine Sen. Hillary Clinton’s claim that her experience is an advantage in her run for the Democratic presidential nomination. Her eight years as first lady count for little, they say. Sure, she won re-election last November, they say, but New York is a solidly Democratic state. Really, she is just a one-term senator.
    In the logic of politics, questioning an opponent’s credentials is a fundamental right. And in our overheated 24/7 presidential campaign, any claim is likely to find partisans and media types willing to run with it for a few days.

    But during her editorial board with the Monitor on Friday, Clinton made a convincing case that both in campaigning with her husband and in living with him in the White House for eight years, she learned plenty.

    She spoke wistfully of the 1992 primary campaign in New Hampshire. Her husband took two huge hits in the final days of that campaign. He faced allegations of sexual dalliances, and a letter he wrote to the draft board during the Vietnam War became public. The first he answered on 60 Minutes with his wife at his side. On the second, he faced the media and defended himself in Manchester.

    Hillary Clinton told us that even on election eve, as campaign aides advised Bill Clinton to prepare for a drubbing, she remained confident.

    From this experience and from watching John Kerry fall to an attack on his patriotism and war experience in 2004, she learned a valuable lesson: Immediately answer any attack on your character, no matter how absurd.
    During the interview, Clinton described the presidency as a lonely job in which her husband turned to her for counsel on “everything.” She contrasted the Clinton style – don’t just interact with leaders of other countries, go directly to the people – to the Bush style. She described how the lessons of her failed effort to reform health care in the early months of the Clinton presidency had informed the way she approaches the issue now.

    There is certainly plenty to criticize from Hillary Clinton’s White House years. Her view of her own performance in the health care debacle is charitable to say the least. One casualty of that failure was the hope that she could transform the job of first lady. And almost from the moment her husband’s personal weakness set the Lewinsky soap opera in motion, “Clinton fatigue” was a powerful force in the country.

    But Hillary Clinton knows the rough-and-tumble of American politics as well as anyone. For her, political experience is a strength, not a weakness. To claim otherwise plays right into her hands.

  22. hillfans, i just saw the dnc meeting with the florida dems. wtf is going on with the dnc? will hillary still compete hard in florida now that the dnc will strip their delagates? im annoyed the dnc are keeping those relic rules.

  23. terrondt, living in Florida I’m just amazed our dems would shoot themselves in the foot with this primary date game. Do they Dean is kidding when he says Florida won’t count in the primary? Hopefully they’ll get it figured out within the next thirty days, I want to see Hillary in person here in Tampa Bay!

  24. Concord Monitor:

    “…’Clinton fatigue’ was a powerful force in the country”

    Contrary to RightWing propaganda, there was never any “Clinton fatigue” in the country. President Clinton’s approval numbers rose DRAMATICALLY when the RightWing attempted the fake impeachment, he left office with the highest approval ratings of any President since FDR, and is the most popular former President we’ve ever had.

    On the other hand, there is CLEARLY Bush Fatigue in the country, with his approval numbers competing with Nixon as to who has the lowest, and a Newsweek poll from earlier in the year showed that 58 percent “WISH THE BUSH PRESIDENCY WERE SIMPLY OVER”.

  25. Ignore the DNC, it will be up to convention
    rules to seat the delegation. They would be
    stupid not seat them at the convention
    even if the no candidate has a majority of
    delegates. Florida is too important in GE
    to ignore them. Also, the DNC is stupid to
    get involved because the date change was
    enacted by FL GOP.

    This election cycle will probably see the end
    the leapfroging primaries. Next cycle, we will
    see four regional primary elections. Each
    cycle they will rotate from first to last. Giving
    each region a chance to go first every 16 years.

    As I have mentioned in earlier post, watch the
    rules committee. That is were the action
    is; not the platform committee.

  26. Yes, Madame President sounds very respectful, I like that the most.
    But when they would call her(I know, getting a bit ahead of myself) President, would it be President Clinton? Or President Rodham Clinton?

    I like them both, President Clinton for short, but for the history books I think it would be more appropriate with Rodham Clinton, to really distinguish the two Clintons.

  27. WTF – Obama is really cozying up to the Rethugs..if Hillary did that….DailyKooks would be bashing her left and right. Same goes for her bringing up the terror fear being a plus for the R’s…I think it’s a great strategy for her to talk about it – instead of pretending it’s not a factor..

  28. They should off course talk about Hillary when Bill is on Oprah, only hope Oprah can be respectful enough to not throw in any/too many questions about OBAMA!!!! Fawn!!! (blah)
    And I hope Bill can show some enthusiasm, he has been kind of subdued on the campaign trail. I know there is a fine line to walk in order to not attack or be against the other candidates as he could end up working with one of them if Hillary is not elected(god forbid 🙂 ) But still! She’s his wife, show some excitement Bill!

    I remember a previous appearance he had on Oprah, he was releasing his book My Life, and Oprah said she had bragged to her friends about how of course he would put her in the book, “How could he not” And he didn’t!
    And she mentioned that when he came on, and he just apologized, he wanted to put so much in the book, so something had to go. Hehe.
    Sorry, but that just kind of made me smile.

    And in the past she had been a presenter of an award that were given to Hillary not too long ago, and she mentioned then before the crowd and Hillary, that she hoped she would run for President, and along comes OBAMA!!! And we know the story.
    I just really wonder if OBAMA!!! Was white, would she support him??

  29. Y’all I just paid a visit to Hillary’s official site. There is some right wing fascist that is posting about BOMBA’s foreign policy. Please, I know we are all pressed for time and are probably as faded as the last rose of summer, but in addition to DailyKOS, we need to keep posting intelligent and accurate info on the Hillary site until others pick up the banner. And, I did post a Diary in the wee hours last night on the kook nuts DailyKos site. It’d be great if you’d wonder over there an give some support or give me feedback later. Thanks y’all –mollyj

  30. Gorto, Bill is careful when campaigning with Hillary not to overshadow her. I don’t think he wants to become the focus, lol.

  31. kitforhill, you said it. hillary would be crucified if she said she would work with the rethugs, but obama gets a free pass from the nutkooks. lordy.

  32. Yeah Paula I know, but….. I read several articles after their first ‘outing’ in Iowa, that he didn’t even seem to be that enthused and excited with her stump speech. She is getting a lot better, but even I, and I love her to bits, thought she seemed stiff and boring at times. But she is getting better every day.

    And as is written on this site at the right hand column: in politics, 90% of reality is perception, he should have been better at at least smiling and applauding more, I’m not saying he should have made better stump speeches, but leave a better perception, people will always have one eye on him. that’s all.

    Also, just saw Bill Maher mention in his opening remarks for his first show of the season, what Hillary said about republicans automatically getting the upper hand in terms of trust regarding terrorism. He agreed with her! And he has a lot of cred when it comes to politics.
    And he just said it as a side note, didn’t make a big point of it, just flat out said she was correct in saying so.

    I agree with him and have noticed that he seems to be coming around to her. He has always seemed like an Edwards guy, at least saying that he believes that he has the best chance of winning a GE.

    He has said many times before that he believe HRC would be a great President, just that he didn’t think she could win.
    He said on Bill O’ show that he thinks she is looking better and stronger and more and more popular by the day, so it will be interesting to see what he says in the future.
    o

  33. Gorto, I read somewhere that Bill is going to really pick up the campaigning pace this fall. BTW, wasn’t that Iowa stop the one where he was sitting on a very uncomfortable stool, lol?

  34. Gorto, I agree that Hillary is getting better with her stump speech, too. She’ll never be in Bill’s league, of course, or even Obama’s, but she can hold her own. Her many strengths lie elsewhere. 🙂

  35. hehe, yeah the stool… poor guy, I hate those too.

    I would argue tho that Barack ain’t THAT impressive.
    But for me that goes to the rhythm he uses as he speaks. It just annoys the hell out of me.

    I actually saw a clip of Hillary the other day, and DAMN I was blown away by how much she suddenly sounded like Bill, she had the accent, tone and smile/charisma, and what Bill has always got is that smile of his.
    Everything seems better if you throw in a smile. And we know Hillary has a great smile, as shown in the AFL-CIO debate “I’m your girl”
    She should just use it more, it will melt many hearts on the campaign trail! 🙂

  36. molly, i just read your diary on daily kos. good job. im was surprized to see others supporting hillary responding to your diary. usually kos is the most anti-hillary site out there.

  37. I don’t think Obama is THAT great either on the stump. He really annoys me with that cadence of his, and his usual furrowed brow. Frankly, I don’t see the excitement there. Hillary does tend to be the best in small group situations, debates, etc…sometimes she hits it on her stump speech…sometimes its a bit stiff…I noticed Bill on that stool and he seems to be evaluating her..although constructive criticism probably is a good thing.

  38. Paula, I disagree. My husband and I tried to watch his speech last year at Harkin’s Iowa steak fry last year on CSPAN, and it was so BORING. He equivocates often when he speaks. I just don’t think he is always so great. He’s certainly no Bill. Hillary is different. But she’s a woman and women have a different speaking style. I went to see her in NH and she’s was really quite good.

    Gorto, that’s SO GOOD to know. I’ve avoided Bill’s show because I thought he was dead set against Hil. Now I can watch again.

    Kitforhill, I totally agree. Hillary is taking on Iraq and terrorism. Maybe there will be a small trend down in her poll numbers because of the way the media handled her recent comments, but after reading the article here, she is just so spot on. She has great command of the issues with both Iraq and terrorism. Also, someone on Kos noted that none of her opponents actually said she was wrong, only that she was wong for saying so. I think they look quite weak compared to her.

  39. Hey folks, Thanks a lot Terrondt. I appreciate your support. Took a lot outta me to do that . I been accused a bein’ a lot of things, but those guys are too much. Those freaks are crazy. –mollyj

  40. Hey MJ, can I ask you to clarify what you meant with: “I’ve avoided Bill’s show because I thought he was dead set against Hil.”

    Bill against Hil?
    Or is that a misspell? 🙂

  41. Oh!! THAT Bill. haha

    Thanks, got it now, yeah I think(hope) he is coming around, at least he has always struck me as somewhat fair.

  42. MJ here is a clip to watch of Bill Maher discussing the race on Larry King, at the beginning he talks of Hillary.
    He says he thinks if she is the nominee and and if she will run against Rudy that it will be a close race.
    He says he worries very much that the republicans will have something on Bill OR that they will MAKE something up. They’ll have some bimbo come out and tell a story.
    That’s what worries him(this is also what worries me, if anything), but he repeats that it is not Hillarys fault if that happens. He also again says he leans Edwards, he likes Obama but is far from sold, he says he finds him too ‘general’ not very specific.

  43. here is the link, you’d have to copy and post this one, takes while for the post to show up with the link intact, so I apologize for many posts.

    youtube.com/watch?v=06x6hgtgHIc&mode=related&search=

  44. Ok, Gorto. I don’t think anyone should worry too much about Bill. I’m not. I think it is sort of old news, especially given that Bill and Hil are now older. I’m sure they will try, but I don’t think it will stick. If Rudy is the nom this will be a fools errand anyway, because I’ve heard rumors he is already ready to dump wife number 3. Bill M. sounds like a bit of a worry wart. I understand that because we can’t afford to lose. But, I honestly think Hil has the best chances for success.

  45. About Obama on the stump, that was not my personal opinion, just what a lot of people say. I’m just trying to be honest about what his perceived strengths are.

  46. From Staff:

    Checked out the post B-Vox

    It’s amusing/sad to see in the comments the intellectual appetite for memes/frames and the disdain for how voters FEEL.

    Bill Clinton understood how voters felt. His famous “I feel your pain” was derided by the pretentious intelligentsia but voters sensed the wisdom in the man. Voters understood that Bill would ‘put people first’.

    Hillary and the Hillary Team understand voters. They understand the way to fight fear is by discussing it – in advance. That’s why Hillary is winning. She understands people and addresses their concerns. She also understands the opposition and how to fight them.

    The attacks against Hillary and Hillary supporters will become more vitriolic as the reality of the Hillary victory becomes clearer. Some will see the light. Others will become more unhinged – they will go back to the depths with Lord Nader – their saint and hero.

  47. I don’t really like Bill Maher…because I heard him criticize Hillary on several occasions, and he’s been most supportive of Edwards. Plus he likes to criticize all the politicians including Hillary.

  48. Berk Vox – I saw your diary and noticed you had all the Kooks on bashing Hillary..what a bunch of nuts!

  49. Here’s a word a Coburn: much of our state is embarrassed by him. He’s the guy who has his Senate office phone answered “Dr. Tom Coburn’s office.” He’s the guy who fixed a woman while she was drugged without her consent because he thought it appropriate, he then lied to the Medicaid folks in fudging his billing on it. He’s so anti-abortion that he attacks women- including victims of rape and incest. He’s virulently anti-gay. He did a crossword puzzle during the SCOTUS confirmation on national TV and was made fun of for it. There is a serious problem with this guy and if Bwak wants to reinforce his “present” vote for abortion votes and the implication he’s paying lip service to those who are pro-choice by getting in cahoots with Tom Coburn, he should go right ahead. Be my guest. It will only serve as fodder for a nice attack on his stance on women’s rights and protecting the Supreme Court from more Alito’s and Roberts’ type nominees..
