In the long run, if Obama wins the delegate count and hill wins the super del's, it will be like running into a brick wall

So words matter. Or some such, "words matter" being an instance of airtight question begging. What is going on with this silly AP story and the dubious leaders it purports to describe? Obama has "borrowed" his friend's words? Clinton's team accuses him of plagiary, a transgression that somehow violates rhetorical integrity? Then Obama accuses Clinton of "using" "his" words?

Every last one of the characters involved in this little fray is a numbskull: Obama, Clinton and her spokesperson, the AP writer, and what the hey, Gov. Patrick, too. Excuse me, little beach, but when last I checked, "it's time to turn the page" and "fired up, ready to go" were clichés and, what's more, unavailable for personal appropriation. You go, Hillary! Use them words!

I just heard that. As long as Governor Patrick doesn't press charges against his friend, Senator Obama, I think no one will care, no matter what Hillary says, including, "This is not about me, it is about the American people."

I hope to have a post up (if I find the time tonight) listing some of the things both the Clintons (especially Bill) have been saying recently. Now those pearls are truly originals - no plagiarism there. Also, CNN is reporting that Bubba nearly got into a physical altercation with a heckler who was screaming "Obama" at a rally for HRC in Ohio. Too bad there is no video evidence. Hopefully someone has a personal video that will be posted on You Tube soon.

Meanwhile the latest poll in Texas predicts a dead heat in the Democratic contest.
