Orr on Clinton

In the New Republic (my emphasis):

Anyone reading this blog is presumably aware that, over the past several weeks, Hillary Clinton has gone out of her way to repeatedly compliment John McCain at Barack Obama’s expense.

But consider a few other data points:

1) Matt Drudge hyped a photo of Obama in Somali garb that he claimed (and the Clinton campaign declined to deny) Clinton staffers had been circulating.

2) Bill Clinton went on the Rush Limbaugh show on the day of the Texas primary–after Limbaugh had spent days urging GOP voters in the state to cross over and vote for Clinton in order “rig” the election and ensure that Democrats nominated the weaker of their two candidates. 

3) The Clinton campaign has been circulating an article in The American Spectator alleging that an Obama adviser, former Air Force chief Merrill McPeak, is an anti-semite and a drunk.

4) When Clinton attacked Obama on Jeremiah Wright yesterday, she did it at an editorial meeting of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, the vanity publication of Richard Mellon Scaife, while sitting next to Scaife himself.

Drudge. Limbaugh. The American Spectator. Richard Mellon Scaife. What exactly is it going to take before Clinton campaign staffers recognize that they are, in essence, now working for the Vast Right-Wing Conspiracy?

That’s the Richard Scaife recall who argued that Hillary was behind the death of Vince Foster (which was a suicide).  That Richard Scaife–who you know called her in public a murderer.  

She is clearly trying to peg Obama as the black candidate through the use race-baiting outlets to create white fear (including Jewish fear).  You can say that’s she not per se race baiting only outsourcing her baiting to those who (she’s no dummy) clearly will stoke such fires. 

The “anti-Semite” in question (McPeak) hates Israel (apparently) because he thinks the country ought to return to its pre-1967 borders.      

Clinton has proved yet again the great spiritual insight:  you become what you meditate upon–especially if what you meditate on is your fear and hate.
