Are there any? Would they like to tell me — I’m not being facetious here, I’m really honestly asking — why they’re fans?
Because I don’t get it. It’s like Atrios is always saying about McCain, that his base is … who, exactly? I know a lot of people who want a woman president, who’d like the chance to vote for a woman nominee. I’m one of those people, in that all things being equal and the candidate being qualified and satisfying my many requirements I’d love it if that candidate was a chick. But I don’t know anybody dying to vote for Hillary Clinton herself.
So if anybody out there is head-over-heels I’d appreciate the information. Because based on her announcement today, for the next year and a half I’m gonna get shit from all my wingnut relatives about “Hitlery,” and it might be nice to have something good to say to slap ’em down.
ps. Though I do love that she’s in the race for one reason: It might just finally be the thing that makes the bloated balloon that is Rush Limbaugh’s fat head finally explode.
