James Carville and Paul Begala are out at CNN. Carville and Begala are Hillary supporters. Hillary supporters on Big Media broadcasts will not be tolerated.
Carville and Begala have been targeted for a long time by the denizens of Kookville and other assorted Hillary Hating Naderites and PINOs. The Kooks whined that Carville and Begala did not disclose their love of Hillary and their support of Hillary. Fine. We love and are all for full disclosure. Point taken. CNN however has now gotten rid of the Hillary supporting duo. Disclosure is not the issue now, CNN has simply removed them.
A while back, the New York Times devoted its busy pages to push the unrelenting attack against those naughty boys – C & B. The New York Times even quoted the Head Kook:
“Would it kill CNN to disclose that James Carville is a partisan Clinton supporter when talking about the presidential race?” wrote Daily Kos. “Would it kill James Carville to disclose that he is a partisan Clinton supporter when on the air talking about the presidential race? Apparently so.”
Of course the Head Kook himself has been hired by Newsweek magazine to represent Democrats. Problem is, the Head Kook is not a Democrat. Newsweek hired a dyed in the wool Republican to represent Republican views on its pages – Karl Rove. Democrats get the Head Kook. The Head Kook loves attacking Democrats while pretending to support Democrats. But the Head Kook is a self-interested “libertarian” or somesuch. And — the Head Kook has endorsed Obama. Does the Head Kook disclose that? The Head Kook has trashed Hillary (recall the great “waitress tips” witch hunt) on his orange sulfur, waste enhancement plant, which we lovingly and accurately call DailyKooks.
Newsweek should follow the CNN model and remove the Head Kook as a Democratic spokesman.. Newsweek should get a real Democrat to represent real Democrats.

Meanwhile, the NBC head kook and head Hillary Hater (yes, Tim Russert) moderated the Republican debate last night. “Moderated” is the right word. Russert was sweetness and light with the Republicans. The only bile from the plump Russert was – surprise – a question to Mitt Romney about “the Clintons”. Russert was worried about how Romney would beat up and defeat his arch enemies – the Clintons. Apparently all the Kooks nationwide are worried that the Clintons will win the White House again – a job left undone in 2000 and 2004 when there were no Clintons running for president.
Russert wasn’t done going after the Clintons after the debate though. Today on the Today show Russert’s NBC showed a photo of Obama’s slumlord friend Rezko – taken with – (surprise) the Clintons. The photo was “received” by NBC from an undisclosed source, undated. The photo also appeared on Drudge (surprise).
The photo is one of those “assembly line” photo opportunities taken at who knows what event. But where oh where would such a photo come from? Who, oH who would have that photo? Who? Anyone? Let’s see… the photo was taken at some undisclosed event (NBC needs to come clean on this and disclose their source). The only people with a copy of that photo would be the event organizers, the Clintons, and of course the third person in the picture. Now who would have that photo within easy reach – like on their desk or mantle? Who would display a picture with the President and First Lady? Who? Who is an Obama friend, with a copy of a photo of himself and Bill and Hillary Clinton?
The only source that appears to have access to a photo which benefits Obama would be a friend of 17 years – a slumlord – an indicted slumlord – dare we say that name? Yes, you guessed it – it’s REZKO.
The Hillary campaign got the truth out on the photo:
Tony Rezko has never contributed a dime to Hillary or Bill Clinton. They have no relationship with Tony Rezko.
Tony Rezko has been described as Sen. Obama’s “political patron” and friend of 17 years.
Tony Rezko and his associates have directly donated over $200,000 to Sen. Obama, and bundled more, but Sen. Obama has only returned $85,000. Sen. Obama’s name recently appeared in court documents because it was revealed some money Rezko raised was funneled through at least one straw donor or stolen from the government.
Sen. Obama wrote letters to city and state officials that helped secure $14 million for Rezko in taxpayer money.
Sen. Obama helped Rezko impress potential investors by appearing at his business meetings.
Most famously, Sen. Obama and Rezko were involved in a controversial real estate transaction.
Obama/Michelle/Drudge/Russert and assorted Kooks think we somehow will shy away from REZKO because of this photo. Hardly. We want NBC to come clean. Obama has to come clean. We rejoice at the release of this photo. We want the REZKO issue aired as much as possible. The big story today is that the Obama – REZKO friendship continues even though the slumlord friend of 17 years is under indictement. REZKO once again is trying to come to Obama’s rescue.

Russert, the Head Kook, Kerry, Klein and others who do not know how to fight, nor how to win elections, or who simply Hate the Clintons have been demanding that Bill Clinton stop campaigning for Hillary. The arguments bring tears of laughter to seeing eyes. These “get rid of Bill” Kooks worry about Bill Clinton’s reputation – really that is what they say – no joke. They worry about how Bill is not being a “statesman”, diminishing his greatness. Ha! “Bill is too tough” they say. “The tone is too rough” they worry. Really, who are they kidding. Where were these louts when Obama slipped anonymous lie filled memos attacking the Clintons personally?
So we raise a salute to the Hillary Team for keeping the wonderful Bill Clinton in the campaign. Let Bill Clinton make the case for Hillary. Al Gore listened to the Donna Brazile’s and the Russerts and other know-nothings and kept Bill Clinton out of the 2000 campaign. Al Gore was not inaugurated.
Once again, we salute the great Hillary Team.

The next few weeks the Hillary Team will be tested.
With over 20 states voting on February 5 it will be the entire Hillary Team, the entire Hillary organization that will be carrying the battle. Hillary will not be able to make repeat appearances every day in more than 20 states. Now the Hillary Team will make the difference.
The previous contests in Iowa, New Hampshire, Michigan, Nevada were one state contests. South Carolina too is a one state contest. Obama and Edwards were able to go toe to toe with Hillary in those states. But after Florida, the contest is nationwide in more than 20 states. Edwards does not have an organization worth speaking of. Obama has an untested organization. Will Obama be able to compete, will the Obama organization be able to compete in more than 20 states, with competing messages, competing budgets? We know the Hillary Team will do us proud. The Hillary Team did not wilt, but rather triumphed, in New Hampshire. Thank you Hillary Team.

Before the February 5 contests, South Carolina and Florida vote. South Carolina votes on Saturday. In 1988 Jesse Jackson, a real progressive, won 64% of the vote in South Carolina. Anything less for Obama and Obama will be humiliated.
As to Florida, we long ago felt that all candidates should demand that Michigan and Florida be respected. We urge all candidates to demand that the voters in the crucial states of Florida and Michigan not be disenfranchised. Today, Hillary has come out for full representation rights. Hillary demands that Florida and Michigan voters be respected and that their votes be counted – not just counted but respected.
“I hear all the time from people in Florida and Michigan that they want their voices heard in selecting the Democratic nominee.
“I believe our nominee will need the enthusiastic support of Democrats in these states to win the general election, and so I will ask my Democratic convention delegates to support seating the delegations from Florida and Michigan. I know not all of my delegates will do so and I fully respect that decision. But I hope to be President of all 50 states and U.S. territories, and that we have all 50 states represented and counted at the Democratic convention.
“I hope my fellow potential nominees will join me in this.
“I will of course be following the no-campaigning pledge that I signed, and expect others will as well.”
When will Obama and Edwards follow Hillary’s lead? When will Obama demand that Florida have a voice in the Democratic convention?
Obama and Edwards must be pressed on this issue before Florida votes early next week.
Thank you Hillary Clinton and the Hillary Team.
