Clinton Spin Parody of the Week

This comes from a commenter at TNR's The Plank, but would it really surprise you if Mark Penn said the same thing?:

Yeah, but this just goes to show that Obama only wins in states that hold contested elections. Sure, he wins big in caucus states, he wins big in primary states, he wins big when turnout is low, and he wins big with record-high turnout. But what the Obama-worshipping media is overlooking is that in each of the 25 state contests Obama has won so far, his name appeared on the ballot. It's time to stop giving Obama a pass on this critical issue.

Remember, if Hillary Clinton wins the Democratic nomination, Barack Obama's name will not be on the ballot in November. And only Hillary Clinton has demonstrated that she can win when Obama's name is not on the ballot. In fact, she's undefeated in contests where Obama is not on the ballot, making her clearly the more electable general-election candidate.

Speaking of TNR, Jonathan Chait's cover story this week, on McCain's coldly calculating political nature over the years, had a Hall of Fame headline: "Maverick vs. Iceman." So he's his own wingman?

all i know is that if Obama wins the delegate count and hill wins the super del's, it will be like running into a brick wall for the Dems

Be prepared for the "Maverick vs. Iseman" article, too.
