Rock Reminds Bill That Hillary ‘Lost’


Last night, the increasingly insufferable Bill Clinton guested on David Letterman’s Late Show, where he reminded everyone that his wife was also a good presidential candidate before complimenting Barack Obama – “the other way” in Bubba-speak – in the most backhanded ways possible.

Letterman didn’t call Bill on his bullshit at all, which is unfortunate, but that’s what made it extra satisfying when Chris Rock did.

Click through to watch Letterman squirm with the knowledge that Clinton and his people are backstage, hearing every word of Rock’s roast.

      From this side of the pond we are still not sure why exactly Hilary is not the democratic candidate! She is experienced, knows what the fuck she is doing and would undoubtedly have walked over that arse McCain.

      What are you guys up to over there??? Do you want the republicans to win the election?? Do you have fucking death wish?

      Well Tallskin, we believe in the democratic process over here on this side of the pond. Senator Obama won the most primary and caucus votes to win the nomination. That means a majority of Democratic voters thought he would be a better candidate than Hillary Clinton.

      It’s simply a time for someone other than the Clintons or the Bushes to have a shot at running this country.

      ChicagoJimmy- we believe in the democratic process over here on this side of the pond.

      I’m an American also but am living on the other side of the pond too. And I can tell you, having primaries and caucuses in a six-month period is not a pure-democratic process. The Europeans are really astonished to see how flawed our voting system is. A true democratic system would be the popular vote, taken on one day with the same rules applied for all.

      Tallskin, perhaps from your distance you failed to notice that while dyed-in-the-wool Democrats fawned greatly over Sen Clinton during the primaries, she is actually a highly polarizing figure nationally, among non-activitists, moderates, and independents. I think her candidacy would hardly have been a walk-over and would more likely have been just as close, if not a closer run, than Obama’s.

      I’m with AJ, though: I’d love to dump the whole primary nonsense altogether have have a single election, with a run-off if necessary. Done and Done.

      Ok, well it just seemed that Hilary was experienced, competent and would’ve slaughtered McCain, who, let us be honest, is several light bulbs short of a full chandelier.

      I guess from over here we don’t pick up on this “divisiveness” thing. We assumed people who disliked her did so because she is a woman.

      I’m am SOOOO with Tallskin. If anyone bothered to watch the electoral college polling last winter and spring, Hillary would have dominated the election. Now thanks to the far left in my party, we’re stuck with this dead heat.

      And ChicagoJimmy- You’re mistaken that “a majority of Democratic voters” chose Obama. That is simply not the case. Try looking at the vote count again. The way the caucuses work you can get more delegates in some states with fewer votes than in other states with votes. The system was gamed, and gamed fairly. But your statement is still inaccurate.

      A rather sick joke that someone has just emailed me:

      Heaven is full. St peter standing there at the pearly gates, vetting people, turning many many away. Obama’s turn comes up. “So”, says St Peter. “we’re full, can only let you in if you’ve done something exceptional in your life”.

      “Well,” says Obama. “I was the first black person to be elected as President of the USA”.
      “That’s certainly an achievement” says St Peter. “When did that happen?”
      “12 seconds ago” say Obama.

      tallskin, are you a neo-fascist? Are you trying to tell us that Obama should not be allowed to live if he is elected president?
      Wjy? Because he is black. I tell you people as I said it on another thread when an Austrian climbed on board the the comment section and came out bashing Americans. I have spent extensive time in Europe, my husbands parents are from Austria and Bavaria. Both grew up under Hitler, and even have their little Hitler youth books neatly tucked in the cedar chest. The bigotry over there is far worst than ours though they like to slam us for it. This is a continent that gasing people, burying them alive and other final solutions were considered okay, and though the newer generations like to distance there self from that the same blood runs through there veins and they have not evolved as much as they like to present. The Swiss are appalling, the French are as well, many of the eastern
      Euro countries cannot keep enough Hitler dolls on the store shelves. Germany has bore the blunt of shame and guilt while many of these other countries have played like innocent victims,
      well, they are not and thats why they love to bash the states the first chance they get, because they have become very good at keeping all the negative focus on others so that they take no responsibility for the horrors they have, and still, contribute to the world.

      I think that “joke” should be removed from the comments.

      Also, as much as I regret it, I think Bill Clinton may be getting old. Another possibility is that the severe depression that many heart bypass operation patients experience may be influencing his thinking.

      I remember him as intelligent, gracious and fair as President, but he always did have a bad temper that was well hidden by his handlers.

      ChicagoJimmy, I get that you’re super happy Obama is the nominee and that’s fine and all, but there is no need to lie….Hillary had more votes than any other presidential candidate in history. Over 18 million… That is all.

      they speak out to help obama and they are media whores….
      they don’t speak out enough and they are bitter.

      When Obama did not select Hilary as his running mate I was a little upset. But more and more I can see why he may not have. The Clintons are a dominate duo and are not at all good to playing 2nd fiddle to anyone. I think that Obama would have constantly been
      fighting to keep her from overshadowing him. I don’t think it would have been a good match.

      I think everyone is getting bent out of shape for nothing.

      Chris Rock is a comedian and that’s what he does funny, or not. We don’t need to be beefing about The Clinton’s and The Obama’s.

      RRGG said with Clinton the electoral college would kill McIsane. Well lets be realistically about why. Monday AP & Yahoo took a poll and found White democrats are moving towards McInsane and race had alot to do with that.

      Now should he have made her his running mate…….YES! However, there were reasons we don’t why he didn’t. This Man is far from dumb but because of being non-caucasian he is very careful what proceeds out of his mouth and he should.

      I think he is on the right track. He now just needs to PUMP UP HIS FIST and take McInsane and Stalin down and I think it will be fine.

      Oh and by the way Hillary never had 18,000,000.00 votes she only beat Obama by less that 20,000.00 overall.

      But we still love Hillary and she’ll be fine!

      Keep it BLUE folks!

      Senator Obama won the most primary and caucus votes

      Uh, actually, no, he didn’t.

      The only reason he “won” was because two of the largest states in the country (which voted for Clinton) had their votes cut in half, and the Democratic National Committee then handed a large number of Clinton’s delegates in both states to Obama — who wasn’t even on the ballot.

      The more interesting question to me… if Obama loses, which appears entirely possible (and which is a damning indictment of the incompetence and arrogance of the DNC folks who orchestrated his “victory”), will Chris Rock be as polite backstage as Mr. Clinton was?

      I doubt it!

      Well Brian @ No 19

      GOD DAMN you bitter Clinton queens. If he loses he loses. So you should be very happy that The White House will stay WHITE.

      So when McInsane and Salin fucks you all over.
      At least you can’t play the race card and start calling Obama a N____R. You know how folks do.

      And Hillary did’nt get 18,000,000.00 votes
      fuck delegates Florida and Michigan violated the rules plain and simple.

      And strange when Hillary won a caucus (New Mexico) no one complained. But when Obama won the rest all of a sudden they didn’t count anymore.

      Yeah Right!

      Some gays kill me with this shit. Don’t like him and use every reason for not wanting to support him but the real reason.

      RACE, Yeah I said that!

      But yet and still don’t discriminate against me because of my lifestyle?

      WOW

      I’m not a Clinton supporter, just someone who is pointing out the facts of the situation (which many Obama supporters seem unable to grasp).

      As for accusations of racism, clearly the racist in this discussion isn’t me (or any of the others who have pointed out the, ahem, Inconvenient Truths of the matter).

      Playing the race card, repeatedly with unwarranted accusations of racism, ultimately does disservice to the cause of eliminating racism, because you’re constantly crying wolf.

      Obama’s campaign and surrogates have already badly damaged race relations in this country through constant, baseless assertions that anybody who doesn’t fall in line simply must be a member of the Klan. All that does is desensitize people to claims of racism, so that when actual racist situations pop up, the populace isn’t motivated to action due to their memories of the race card being played.

      Clinton supporters did the same with the gender card, and McCain’s surrogates are doing it with the age card too.

      News for all of you — the vast majority of people who oppose Obama are not motivated in the slightest by race, the vast majority of people who oppose Clinton are not motivated by gender, and the vast majority of people who oppose McCain are not motivated by age.

      Start focusing on the facts and thinking for yourselves, rather than regurgitating this baseless cheap-shot bullshit.

      What is there to grasp???????
      Really so Palin is the answer.

      And since you you’re not a Clinton supporter then who is best to run this country? I ask you Brian.

      And as for this comment:

All that does is desensitize people to claims of racism, so that when actual racist situations pop up, the populace isn’t motivated to action due to their memories of the race card being played.

      The Obama campaign has not played this. But if you don’t think it’s being used. Then explain this.
      1)The Texas GOP convention selling buttons that says “If Obama wins will The White House stay White?

      2)Another Texas GOP Bumper sticker with the GOP symbol dressed up in urban clothing pissing on an Obama 08 sign

      3) Mississippi and Tennessee GOP racially motivated ads on TV against Obama and his wife

      4)And we won’t mention the Value Voters Summit with “The Famous Obama Waffles” Change you can taste with his picture dressed up like a butler on the front of the box

      5)Atlanta Ga bar owner selling curious Geoge T-shirts with Obama ’08 on the front

      You have got to be kidding me dear and the Obama campaign have not commented at all. So they are not playing the race card. But to say that Race isn’t an issue.PLEASE

      Then there is that infamous AP/Yahoo poll where some white dems are steering toward McCain from Obama for crazy reasons. So to say it’s not being used.

      SORRY Brian it most certainly is.

      However we’re not all seeing it that way. It’s just there.

      I keep hearing people say that Hillary is “experienced.” Can someone explain what vast amount of “experience” she has that Obama doesn’t have? As if “experience” makes you a great President, by the way. And don’t say she was first lady.
