Oops, the Des Moines Register is off the Big Media Party reservation. The Register endorsed Hillary Clinton.
The Big Media Party outlets will do their darnest to ignore or twist the story. But the story remains – The Des Moines Register Has Endorsed Hillary Clinton.
The Big Media Party always hated those dull President Bill Clinton speeches – heavy with details and programs to better American lives. But the American people loved those long, dull, detailed, issue heavy speeches.
Big Media wanted lots of hoopla and circuses, and gossip.
Now The Big Media Party hates those dull Hillary Clinton speeches heavy with details and programs to better American lives.
The Big Media Party will try to ignore “the most coveted endorsement” of this campaign season. But it’s a new age, and the Big Media Party is about to lose to another Clinton – Hillary Clinton.

We won’t indulge ourselves in repeating the Des Moines Register endorsement. Well, maybe just a little:
The choice, then, comes down to preparedness: Who is best prepared to confront the enormous challenges the nation faces — from ending the Iraq war to shoring up America’s middle class to confronting global climate change?
The job requires a president who not only understands the changes needed to move the country forward but also possesses the discipline and skill to navigate the reality of the resistant Washington power structure to get things done.That candidate is New York Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton.
Big Media will try to ignore or twist the words of the Des Moines Register. But the postal carriers in Iowa will carry the message like happy Santas to warm households in Iowa. Usual Register readers will read the paper. The Hillary Team will mail reminders to many more. In vast farmlands, in cramped city apartments, young and old will open their mail boxes and read with wide eyed joy about the “discipline” and “skill” Hillary will employ to “navigate” the “resistant Washington power stucture” in order to “get things done”. Big Media can’t stop those happy “Santas” from delivering the news.
Hillary too will deliver the great message of how she will “get things done”. Her friends, old and new, young and not so young will help deliver the great news.
Former President Bill Clinton and former National Basketball Association superstar Earvin “Magic” Johnson are scheduled to campaign for Democrat presidential candidate Sen. Hillary Clinton in Waterloo Tuesday, the Clinton campaign in Des Moines announced late Friday. [snip]
The Waterloo tour is part of a larger campaign tour on behalf of Sen. Clinton by the former president and Johnson, the three-time NBA Most Valuable Player who helped lead the Los Angeles Lakers to five NBA titles in the 1980s, following a 1979 NCAA national championship at Michigan State.
Maya Angelou will speak to millions, via radio, about the Hillary she knows.
The great Hillary Team in Iowa with names like Vilmain, Whouley, Celiff, Emjay will deploy across the land like happy snowflakes. Knocking on houses and apartments with stockings hung by the chimney with care, many volunteers will bring the news Big Media does not want to deliver.
On Sunday, Hillary travels to Council Bluffs where she’ll be endorsed by former Senator Bob Kerrey before heading by “Hill-A-Copter” to Dunlap and Le Mars. At each stop, Hillary will talk about why every county counts, emphasizing that every pocket of Iowa will play a major role in determining the outcome of the caucuses while pledging to work for change every day she is President.
In addition, Gen. Claudia Kennedy, longtime Hillary friend Betsy Ebeling, Gov. Tom Vilsack, Christie Vilsack, former Gov. Gary Locke and former FEMA Director James Lee Witt hit other counties in the state as part of the overall effort to connect with current and prospective supporters. In total, the campaign expects to have a presence in 26 Iowa counties on Sunday.
In addition to campaign events, surrogates will spend time with Iowans in their communities. For example, James Lee Witt is expected to visit a HyVee grocery store in Oskaloosa and Governor Gary Locke will attend the closing ceremony of a Chinese Language School in Johnston. [snip]
People forget that just a decade ago so many poor children didn’t have health care. Well, Hillary changed that. She delivered health care for six million children by helping create the Children’s Health Insurance Program. Five years ago, National Guardsmen and Reservists didn’t have access to health care. Hillary changed that too. She reached across the aisle in the Senate to deliver those critical benefits. She changed the way we think about health care when she fought her heart out for universal health care even when it wasn’t a popular cause. And Hillary changed the way the world looked at women’s rights when she stood up to the Chinese government in Beijing and declared that “women’s rights are human rights.”
That’s not just hoping for change or demanding change. That’s working for change. And that’s what Hillary will keep doing when she’s President.
A Hill-a-copter will be heard in the distance laden with good news and a plucky tough lady. Mothers will be heard on the airwaves and television speaking of the Hillary they know:
Barbara Marzelli, whose son has gone through four open-heart surgeries and is enrolled in the children’s health insurance program (SCHIP), praised Clinton for helping to create the program for kids.
“Without this, we would have lost everything, including our child,” she said. “Hillary will prove to you, as she has with our family already, that she has the strength, experience, commitment and heart to lead this country.”
And Annmarie Morse told the voters here about her college daughter’s losing fight against colon cancer and the problem her family faced when they realized she would lose her health insurance as soon as she left school for medical treatment.
Morse successfully lobbied for a new law in New Hampshire allowing college students to take medical leave and keep their health insurance; now she’s working with Clinton to pass the law at the federal level.
“Hillary Clinton is passionate about health care for everyone,” Morse said. “My motto is ‘never mess with a mom who is passionate about anything.‘ “
Big Pink websites will print and reprint the good news and not forget the Des Moines Register endorsement of Hillary Clinton. Hillary heroes will deploy to do battle and carry the Hillary message across the vast wasteland of Big Blogdom.
The result of this election is now in our own hands.
“Some believe you get change by demanding it. Some believe you get it by hoping for it. I believe you get it by working hard for change.”
We have 18 days. Big Media won’t stop us. Let’s get to work.
