She’s Done It

Hillary’s campaign to make me actively dislike her has succeeded.  Playing on people’s fears?  Check.  Having surrogates noodle racial issues while retaining some semblance of deniability?  Check.  Brazenly asserting a reality (that she is still in the race by an reasonable measure) that is flagrantly at odds with real reality?  Check.

#1 and #3 cut deep because they are so, so Bush-Administration-esque.  I’m not holding out hope that an Obama presidency would usher in any more change than the usual, incremental kind, but at the very least I’d like a chance for my persistent state of outrage fatigue to have time to fade.  With Clinton, at this point, I’m not so sure it would.
