3. An account of a little known, disastrous American bombing raid during WWII in Romania that ended up with as many American casualties as 10 months of Iraq. Murphy's Law was at work on this one.
4. Captain Ed says Hillary Clinton's campaign is "getting close to a meltdown now." The campaign is falling apart because Hillary Clinton attempted to run a campaign that was dictatorial and Stalinist in spirit, if not in fact as bad as what communist dictators got away with. The candidate seems to want everything controlled and staged, including the questions she is asked. Much of the MSM would happily cooperate with Clinton in setting up a pseudo-Stalinist bubble of protection around the candidate. After all, who are they protecting her from? Corporate America and the Vast Right-Wing Conspiracy. So they're justified, right?
If I was wrong in a previous post and Hillary Clinton does not get the nomination, despite having a lot of money and inheriting her husband's organization and party contacts throughout the land, it will be because the Democrats show remarkable good judgment and nominate someone else. That would be the worst thing that could happen in Republican eyes; to them Clinton's meltdown is coming nine months too early. The other candidates would be much harder to beat.
5. Senator McCain answers the question of how he would beat Hillary Clinton in this brief video. Actually, he says nothing, but the way he is relaxed and laughs shows why he would demolish Clinton. I don't like McCain at all, but I will admit the obvious, that he has more charisma than Clinton. He is Clinton's opposite, in that he comes off as a real, honest human being. In China they can set Mao on a pedestal as if he were a god, but that doesn't work in America -- at least, not yet. A candidate has to react to unstaged questions as McCain did, and as Clinton seems incapable of.
'Very simply put,' he says, 'after the Second World War the avant garde became the establishment. That meant that no one was poking fun at the establishment any more because they approved of it.'
So is it a conspiracy? 'Absolutely not. I don't want to give the impression that there's some plot going on. It's just become impossible not to be a socialist within the artistic community these days.'
