WHY DON'T YOU CRY Mean people suck As part of the ongoing plot by both sides to ensure that Americans get so disgusted by politics that we will cheerfully welcome the incipient corporate oligarchy all the hippies in Seattle have been xeroxing fliers about, Hillary Clinton's team today attempted to extract as much press out of an Obama advisor's referral to their candidate as a "monster" as possible. During a media conference call, Clinton supporters demanded that Obama force the adviser, Samantha Power, out of his campaign, calling it a "test of character" for the Illinois senator. Apparently, it worked: Powers has resigned. Does that mean Obama passed the test, or does it make him a gigantic pussy? Only time will tell!
