Harriet Christian, featured in my Monday article about Hillary Clinton’s disgruntled female supporters, now turns up on Neil Cavuto:
(Hat tip: Wake Up America.) Ms. Christian, who had ranted Saturday that Barack Obama is “an inadequate black male,” defends herself against the accusation that this was a racist remark:
Why is it all right for a black to say that whites are racist, and they’re not? … As far as I’m concerned, I am the furthest thing from a racist. But again, I say, I believe in equality for all. Why aren’t we given the same equal rights? And I’m speaking of myself, personally, as a woman.BTW, Phil, speaking of old bitter women, sorry I was on the road Wednesday and didn’t get back to you earlier on that bet about Hillary’s “concession.” To repeat myself:
A true concession would be for Hillary to release her delegates from their pledges on the first ballot and call for a unanimous vote for Obama. Hillary won’t do that; she’ll insist on at least a show-of-strength vote on the first ballot, meanwhile hoping for some surprise development that will send the superdelegates crawling back to her.And this, so far as I can see, is exactly what Hillary is doing. She is “suspending” her campaign, but she’s not genuinely conceding. I suspect the reason for that is, just like Ms. Christian, Hillary doesn’t really consider Obama’s victory legitimate. At some point prior to Denver, a post-campaign depression may cause Hillary to toss in her cards and tell her delegates, “Screw it — vote for whoever you want.” But she hasn’t done that, and I still don’t think she will.

Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.

The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
