Can you sense the desperation?

February 25, 2008

Updated with correction (at the bottom)


Can you sense it? The desperation (and anger) in the Clinton camp? I can. Circulating this photo just smacks of it. You’d almost think this was the general election with the way the Clintons are going after Obama. The Clintons are not concerned about the the Democratic Party. The Clintons are only concerned with the Clintons. They fully believe this is supposed to be their nomination and it looks as if they are willing to try anything to win. Pathetic.

Sweet: The story behind the Obama photo on

Retired Air Force Gen. Scott Gration, who accompanied Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) on his trip to Kenya in 2006, on Monday defended Obama’s trying on local garb over his clothes during a visit to the rural Wajir region in the country, a picture of which is at the top right now of the Drudge Report.

Obama was merely being a “great guest,” Gration said.

The main story on the Drudge Report on Monday shows Obama fitted as a “Somali Elder” and Drudge’s story said “Clinton staffers” –who were not named–were circulating the picture.

The Obama campaign said release of this photo was “fear mongering” and “ divisive.” The Clinton campaign said the senator has been widely photographed wearing traditional dress, suggesting that there was nothing to raise a fuss about.

By the way, here’s a photo of Hillary in a Hijab:


Correction: it’s been brought to my attention that Hillary is not wearing a Hijab but “a traditional dress worn by Christian Eritrean and Ethiopian women.” The point still stands. Hillary is pictured wearing an ethnic garb while someone has attempted to smear Obama for doing the same thing.
