I haven't pored through all the hoo-ha on Barack Obama's "plagiarism-gate" but I have to ask the Clinton campaign: is that all there is? Methinks somebody is clutching at straws.
Hey, look what I found:
"Are you a politician asking what your country can do for you or a zealous one asking what you can do for your country? If you are the first, then you are a parasite; if the second, then you are an oasis in the desert."That's poet Khalil Gibran way before Bill Clinton's hero ever entered Har-vahd.
Extra - The Plank: "I look forward to the Clintons' next desperate gambit." Also, from the Stump, here's the lowdown on Hillary's lifted lines. Glass houses, baby.
More - From Captain Ed. Meanwhile, John Cole has an open thread headed: "Take your time to figure out what the Clinton camp attack will be tomorrow." Maybe Obama forgot to rewind some videocassettes before he brought them back to Blockbuster.
Oh yeah, whenever I hear a speech like this . . . .
"Don't tell me words don't matter. 'I have a dream' - just words? 'We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal' - just words? 'We have nothing to fear but fear itself' - just words?"
. . . . the very first historic speaker I think of HAS to be Deval Patrick.
Sounds like the sound of desperation for the Clinton campaign!
In all fairness, the "lowdown on Hillary's lifted lines" is even feebler and sketchier than the Obama claim.
Anyway, wasn't it about five minutes ago that we had ten candidates promoting "change"?
Breaking! Rumor is that Obama may have had an overdue library book.
CLINTON: FIRING BLANKS AND (HOPEFULLY SOON) 'READY TO GO'
I truly believe that history involving all of us - We the People - is about to be made: I believe in Barack Obama. Hillary is mostly involved with herself; Barack is a Uniter, who wants to empower us all.
This latest Clinton ploy, nit-picking at the supposed 'plagiarism of Obama's close friend's speech' ploy - a friend who couldn't care less if Obama borrows his words or not! - is merely another sign of how extremely desperate the Clintons have become.
And trying to twist Michelle's SENTENCE about being proud of her country for the first time in her adult life is merely an indication of how wildly successful Michelle has been: despite never even using a note card during her countless fantastic speeches, they never had a chance to lay a finger on her before, so now they pounce, or at least try to pounce, on the fact that Michelle said she never had a chance in her adult life to be proud of her country's participation in the political process. And this charge coming from the Clinton campaign that's always hawking that the Obama campaign deals in fluff, not substance?: as a Democrat, I feel it's downright embarrassing; as an American it's doubly embarrassing when you remember that the whole world is watching...
This brilliant "OBAMA PORTRAIT MUSIC VIDEO" has been used all across the country at house parties and fundraisers - hope you enjoy it, too:
