When I wrote my endorsement of Senator Obama last month, I noted Senator Clinton’s penchant for being a little too Cheney-ish to receive my primary season support. This week, she proved me accurate when she made with the Cheney-ish fearmongering just in time to scare the White-Mountain-sized-cockadoody out of New Hampshire voters.
“I don’t think it was by accident that al-Qaeda decided to test the new prime minister. They watch our elections as closely as we do, maybe more closely than some of our fellows citizens do. Let’s not forget you’re hiring a president not just to do what a candidate says during the election, you want a president to be there when the chips are down.”
In other words, the terrorists will surely attack us if a “less experienced” president is elected. So vote for Senator Obama if you want the evildoers to kill us all.
We’ve heard this line before:
“If we make the wrong choice, then the danger is that we’ll get hit again — that we’ll be hit in a way that will be devastating from the standpoint of the United States.” -Vice President Dick Cheney, 9/07/04
