Let me repeat that last sentence for you, because I know it is hard for you to digest and not spit something out on your computer screen when you heard and read it.
"Blanche Lincoln was running against the establishment."
Only in the Village can the Villagers can say something so extraordinary like that. Only in the Village.
What makes this so appalling is that Mitchell and Matthews give the viewer their personal pathetic feelings of love for their Beltway friend Blanche, and how the White House should have protected her at all costs so their friend won't have to leave the "House of Lords", I mean, the Senate. And they don't want to be dejected to see their friend go because of the White House not giving her the type of backing they gave their other dear friend, Arlen!
And their feelings of anger at the White House (especially the wife of Alan Greenspan) at the Obama Administration is made furthermore stupid by the fact that the White House did, you know, back and support Lincoln.
Obama did robo calls for her. But don't tell that to these Beltway socialites and their preference to never have a story leave their deluded and sickening Village perspectives.
(By the way, what's the point of Obama going down there when you have Bill Clinton still be an influence there in the first place? That clearly made the difference.)
It's people like this that make me marvel at people like Digby, Atrios, and Media Matters who digest this elitist nonsense every single day, and document it in the full detail.
And they still can't leave Al Gore alone, it you didn't notice.
Mitchell: "And you have to wonder if Al Gore had not trusted his instinct, and (if) Al Gore brought him (Bill Clinton) in 2000.Man, they just won't stop hating that man. It's like their life's calling card, "To hate Al Gore we must in order to be apart of the Beltway."
Oh, and one more thing Bi-polar Chris Matthews. Joe Sestak, if you forgot, beat the establishment in Pennsylvania just a month or so ago. Sestak doesn't need Bill Clinton to win Pennsylvania, but your little Beltway arrogant mind always want the outsiders to follow your tired narratives.
If you ever needed a guide to how the Villagers think, I hope this post was a paradigm for you that was difficult to swallow.
