99% of America either:
(1.) Doesn’t follow the hour-to-hour developments on the ‘non-sexual’-but-‘offensive gesture’-sex-‘harassment‘-non-story, which is now what the Establishment analysts of both Parties (technically correctly) describe as a process’ vs. ‘substance’ problem. It’s now become HOW Herman answers the questions, NOT a story on the veracity of the original charge in the first place.
(2.) Yup… But even if his answers are ‘evolving’… Nobody cares!
Know why? Because NORMAL people think like Herman did, which is what got him in this mess.
Herman thought the truth would set him free. That’s why, even thought he had a heads up about this, he didn’t assemble a team of ‘Spinners.’
I firmly believe he thought he could just tell the truth… as he remembered it… coming back to him, as it understandably would after 12 years, in ever-more detailed bits…
I am personally troubled by the fact that Herman failed the ’emergency on the trail’ management test, yes, I am. But I am unmoved by it because I know, down to my bones, that it was a mistake made by an honorable man, who – and this is the real core of this – until he’d touched the Progressive Power grid, didn’t realize the voltage of that evil. What’s new, is that the Establishment G.O.P. contributed to the electric shock.
Now he knows D.C. in this unique moment in time, when we have a culture, helped along by Obama, of pitting American against American… and Establishment (read: CORRUPT) GOP against New (read: HONORABLE) Tea Party.
My man Herman’s a fast learner. He’ll not make this mistake again. On the trail…
…Or in the White House.
BTW: Remember Obama’s horrible, dreadful, inexplicable FLUB on drivers’ licenses for illegals during the ’08 campaign debates? A flub made even though Hillary had been burned in the previous debate? Nobody on MSNBC regarded Obama’s LACK OF FRIGGING DEBATE PREPARATION – KNOWING HE WOULD GET THE DAMNED QUESTION as DISQUALIFYING, did they?
UPDATE: Morning Joe is jumping all over Herman for a clip they played of him which, to their ear, indicated that Herman thought China didn’t have nukes. Uh… No, you dishonest brokers. He’s using the normal, vernacular short-hand that everybody uses which is to describe they ability to nuke us from there. Got it?
UPDATE II: Just while writing the above paragraph, Andrea Mitchell and the panel lamented that the Republican Party is giving Herman ‘a pass’ and ‘not asking the questions’ they should ask…
Someone find me a puppy so I can kick it! AAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!
WHO ARE THESE PEOPLE? DO THEY HAVE NO SELF-AWARENESS WHATSOEVER? OMG!
Pass? GETTING A PASS, ANDREA????????????????????????
You mean like you gave Obama ‘I’ve been to 57 states so far’ A PASS?????
And that’s not even the WORST, STUPID thing he’s said, before OR AFTER the White House!
