Please die, Hillary

Hillary's latest campaign trick seems to be "the rules will be whatever I want them to be." I almost had to stop driving yesterday and scream while I listened to her and some spokesminion on NPR.

First, NPR replayed the classic Hillary line of "If we had the Republican system, I would be the nominee already." That's so stupid I don't think it even merits a response.

Second, she then said "We have to look at who's more electable."

Well, if that were the case, why bother having primaries at all? Why not just have a committee that runs focus groups and says, okay, this is the nominee?

Then came her minion, who kept going with all sorts of different ways to win the nomination. Like seating Michigan and Florida. (Terri Gross shot him down nicely with the "well, that won't make a difference with the popular vote count, will it?")

Basically, Hillary wants the rules to mean whatever works to get her elected.

We've had 7 years of a president who doesn't believe the rules apply to him. I don't want any more of that.

Right on. She wants to change the rules as she goes along. May be she should join Republicans and get the nomination. Sad.
