Mickey Kaus Defends His Scandal Coverage To Bob Wright

Click here for BloggingHeadsTV.

Mickey blogs: "Hillary’s people "despise Obama," reports David Corn in a fine piece of schmoozalism. They "don’t need any prompting in private conversations to decry Obama as a dishonest poser." Hillary has (not uncleverly) asked, """How did running for president become a qualification for being president?" … Is this just because Obama’s presumptuous enough to deny her rightful nomination? Or is there another root-cause complaint that the citizens of Hillaryland can’t voice because even though it’s true it wouldn’t help them: that Obama’s an ‘affirmative action baby’ who’s been promoted faster than his merits would ordinarily permit? If he weren’t black he’d be Dick Durbin! (Or a more appealing but less experienced version of Dick Durbin) … That Hillary’s cadres can’t voice or even permit themselves to think about thinking this thought, of course, might tend to make them even madder. … P.S: Of course, Hillary is not an affirmative action baby. She got her position the old fashioned way–by marrying it."
