The Nutcracker

From The Drudge Report: CNN's Wolf Blitzer has been warned not to focus Thursday's Dem debate on Hillary. 'This campaign is about issues, not on who we can bring down and destroy,' top Clinton insider explains. 'Blitzer should not go down to the levels of character attack and pull 'a Russert.''

Classic Clintonian political machinations. Since when is asking a question a character attack?

If I were Wolf, I would ask all of the Dems tough questions, and then I'd watch my back.

BTW the Hillary Nutcracker is an actual item which sells for $24.95. The Thighmistress has rock-solid steel thighs for cracking those tough nuts.

I think a Hillary nutcracker, while quite funny, would put me off my feed.

Brooke said...

I see that since the "attacking the poor girl" tact did not work, the Clinton machine is calling questions a character assassination.

cube said...

Yeah, it's more of a novelty item.

The Clinton machine will use whatever tactic they think will give them an edge.

Imagine a republican candidate warning a member of the press about allowed debate questions. The MSM would pull out all the stops & go after them.

I'd love to see Hill fall flat on her face again, but I fear that
Blitzer & Malveaux will lob softballs all night. The news tomorrow will herald Hill's command of the issues, a perfect performance... yada, yada, yada, The Comeback Gal.

I now know what I am getting my friend for Christmas--that's hysterical!

The Phoenix said...

I bet Bill owns one of those.

Phoenix- Pardon my lack of lady-like behavior, but isn't the velcro zipper married to one?

Gotta LOVE it! I might just get one for the fun of it. Glad you posted it.

well, she doez have some tough nutz (osama bin obama, pony boy edwards, dopey kuchie-koocinich, et. al) to crack!

hopefully wolf doesn't bow to the pressure.

That's one of those ideas I wish I'd had first.

I'm sure that Hillary would like to write all of Wolf's questions for him. But if he ever wants to be considered a serious journalist--yeah, right--the pressure is on him to not back down to asking hard questions.

phoenix: I agree with the Merry Widow. I don't think Bill would want another one of these in the house ;-)

tmw: the velcro zipper. lol!

ms behavin': Glad you liked it.

nanc: Hope springs eternal.

jan: 'Yeah right' is right ;-)

angel: I'm not expecting Hill to get tough questions tomorrow. I am, however, expecting the MSM to call whatever is asked 'tough questions'.

You know, like in Orwell's 1984. when they really cut your chocolate ration, they'd tell you that it was increased. Like that.
