    Hillary Clinton Channeling Eminem

    By kyle | May 9, 2008

    When Hillary Clinton said yesterday in a USA Today interview that people should vote for her based on her support from “white Americans,” I naturally envisioned her taking the logical next step and rapping out the idea in a duet with Eminem, who memorably informed us in “White America,” the opening track from the album of the decade, “The Eminem Show”:

    I never would’ve dreamed in a million years I’d see,
    So many motherf***in’ people who feel like me
    Who share the same views
    And the same exact beliefs,
    It’s like a f***in’ army marchin’ in back of me!

    “Desperate HillBillies Threaten to Break Up Party,” says Post columnist Charles Hurt. Break it up? Nah. Hillary Rodham Clinton, I say: burn that bad boy down!

      Thanks for that video! It brought back some good memories.

      But, really, what is Hillary getting at with a quote like that? “Senator Obama’s support among working, hard-working Americans, white Americans, is weakening again and how whites in both states who had not completed college were supporting me . . . There’s a pattern emerging here.” Is it really something to brag about when UNEDUCATED people are voting for you? She describes them as “hard-working” as if that’s some kind of synonymn for uninformed/uneducated, the only kind of vote she could get.
