Hillary Voters Are Lonely, Imaginary People

So now, in addition to gun-clinging religion-toters, people who voted for Hillary are Eleanor Rigby-types, mere lonely figments of the collective imagination.

This from reader Vanessa:

“In the June 6, 2008 Wall Street Journal, elitist writer Peggy Noonan ripped apart Hillary Clinton. She went on to dismiss HRC’s staunch supporters as ‘lonely people’ and then question whether we actually exist.”

Specifically Noonan says:

“As for reports of their rage, there are always dead-enders, and frantic lovers of this candidate or that. This goes under the larger heading “lonely people.” But there’s reason to think, and some Democratic insiders do think it, that a lot of the supposed pro-Clinton furor is ginned up on Web sites by the Clinton campaign, and even manufactured by the Clinton campaign, to prove Clinton loyalists are real and their demands must be met. In any case, you can see how Mrs. Clinton views her supposed working-class heroes by what she is doing with them now: using them as a bargaining chip to get whatever she wants.”

“Maybe we should let her know that we really do exist and just what we think about her comments. Be nice though — we don’t want to sink to her level.”

Thanks, Vanessa. Geez, Peggy’s quite the hater. She says that she wants to hear from us, so I agree that people should write to let her know what a cynical, sexist pig she is she’s wrong. (I happen to be a civil lady.)

To me, the loneliest is when you make your living by putting other people down, especially outstanding, dedicated, compassionate, accomplished women. Noonan’s inability to see those qualities shows lack of heart and soul, and that she doesn’t have the depth to understand what Hillary’s about. Some people get their kicks like that (ahem, MSM), and it’s just sad and takes us farther from building the kind of world that lifts people up. It’s so much easier to criticize than to come up with any brand new ideas to contribute to the conversation. Onward! To making a better conversation and world!

Hillary To Live-Stream, Sat June 7, 12 pm

For those of you who can’t make it to Washington, DC on Saturday for Hillary Clinton’s historic speech, and prefer or need to watch it online, you can:

Dear [Lady Boomer NYC],

I have been honored and privileged to work with so many dedicated people on Hillary’s historic campaign. Your enthusiastic commitment to her campaign through the primaries has been inspirational.

As you know, Hillary will be holding an event tomorrow in Washington D.C. to thank all of her supporters, to express her support for Senator Obama, and to talk about the issues that have been at the core of her public service, the issues she will continue fighting for.

Hillary wanted to make sure her online supporters were a part of this special event, just as you have been a part of her campaign from the very beginning. So, we will be streaming it live over the website at HillaryClinton.com.

We invite you to visit our website tomorrow, Saturday June 7, at 12 p.m. EDT to watch Hillary speak live.

Thank you for everything you have done for our campaign.
