Girl! The gloves came off last night as undeclared Donna Brazile, her hair from the future and magenta lipstick ripped into Clinton-backer Paul Begala.
Brazile, a superdelegate we sometimes dislike, but always love, got especially angry after Begala questioned Obama’s ability to unite the party: “We cannot win with eggheads and African-Americans. OK. That’s the Dukakis coalition which carried 10 states and gave us four years of the first George Bush.” Well, Brazile simply was not having it:
Paul, you didn’t hear me right. Maybe I should come and cook you something because you’ve got a hearing problem.
I was one of the first Democrats who are going to those white working class neighborhoods, encouraging white Democrats not to forget their roots. I’ve drank more beers with Joe six packs, Jane six pack and everybody else than most white Democrats that you’re talking about.
In terms of Hispanics, you know, Paul, I know the math. I know Colorado, I know Nevada, I know New Mexico. So that’s not the issue. I’m saying that we need to not divide and polarize the Democratic Party as if the Democratic Party will rely simply on white, blue collar male. You insult every black, blue-collar Democrat by saying that.
So stop the divisions. Stop trying to split us into these groups, Paul, because you and I both know we’ve been in more campaigns. We know how Democrats win. And to simply suggest that Hillary’s coalition is better than Obama’s, Obama is better than Hillary. No. We have a big party, Paul.
Brazile concludes by saying “don’t divide me and tell me I cannot stand in Hillary’s camp because I’m black, and I can’t stand on Obama’s camp because I’m female, because I’m both… And I’m grumpy so I might — I might go with McCain and go sit with Bill Bennett!” Brilliant!
Smack! But what the hell did he mean by “eggheads”?
i love her
I watched this last night. I have never seen Donna go off like that… She laid into him. She is also absolutely correct.
Carlos: Obama does better than Clinton among college educated people (e.g., “eggheads”).
Donna had her “fightin’ wig” on last night! Go biatch!!!
I swear I think Begala hurts the Clintons more than he helps. He comes off as such a sniveling weasel lackey who spends his evenings rubbing cream on their feet. Little wonder after that display that CNN switched to Lanny Davis for the Clinton perspective for the rest of the evening.
She got a little carried away, which did nothing to disprove the absolute truth of his statement.
I am glad someone is taking to task some of the idiotic thing the Clinton people are saying.
They will say or do anything to get elected and most tv commentators let them off the hook.
Thanks chgo921. It is really sad to see a Democrat engage in Republican campaign tactics by dumbing down the electorate and calling Obama suppoters as “elitists” and “eggheads”.
The reason Obama has such appeal is he does not engage in the politics of division.
“There are no red states or blue states, there are only the United States!”
Obama and his nutty fanbase have done more dividing in this election than anyone else, and he will pay for it in november.
Have to agree with Afrolito here. Watching the full exchange she got carried away, and before this clip started she was actually trying to lump the democratic party into certain groups…go figure. Personally I love Donna, but thought she missed the mark here a little bit. And also, there is some truth to the point he was making which was in fact the same point Donna was making that basically you need to expand the democratic party to include all groups, and not just the black, educated and young as Donna had pointed out right before this clip began..
“Nutty fanbase” Really Afrolito? I expect a little more from someone who says he is educated. But maybe you need to turn FoxNews off…that really does not qualify as an educational source (or news for that matter).
paul begala was supposed to be a liberal, why on earth would he support a fascist like clinton?
I don’t watch faux news. Never have and never will.
It’s interesting though, how you assume anyone who doesn’t ride the Obamanut bus must be uneducated. How telling!
Afrolito, Where do you get your real news, Queerty?
You missed the point again. I’ll speak slower. Any…one…who…engages…in…name…calling….against…Obama….supporters….is…engaging….in…Republican…campaign…tactics.
i.e., the dumbing down of American policital discourse.
Your point is DUMB. What else is there to get carlos??
Typical White Gay Person
Donna Brazille is so full of herself …and that is a lot to be full of.
She has been in the tank for Obama from day one but pretended to be “open” so she could keep her gig on CNN.
Get ready America…the angry black evangelicals are getting ready to take over and they are far far more bigoted than the Falwells and the Robertsons.
If it weren’t for the Clintons….no one would give a flying fuck about Brazile and her waxed head.
Fuck that bitch…fuck her in her butthole.
And thus sums up the mindset of the average Clinton voter (such as it is) …
brazile is has been in the tank for obama since day one and it was clear last night. she was even asked about it point blank.
She stated, I am undeclared not undecided.
She is a phony, but I do like her.
A Dingo Ate Her Nomination
Truthfully, I’m sort of shocked that Clinton didn’t do better against Obama — I always thought Limbaugh had a lot more influence than he obviously does. All you Operation Chaos flunkies can take your decoder rings and go home now.
Obama might not reveal his true colors during the campaign but if he ever gets into the White House we will start to see and suffer what him and people like Brazile are all about especially as it concerns to LGBT people. Mark my words!
By the way for those who wan’t to be informed as to what the future will be like for Gay people with an Obama pesidency you can start with this link:

Churchilly you might not have heard this – what with your head up your ass and all – but Donna Brazile is a lesbian.
“Churchilly you might not have heard this – what with your head up your ass and all – but Donna Brazile is a lesbian.”
Giovanni, Ms.Brazile’s sexual orientation will have no bearing if shes ever in a white house administration because she like all gay african americans will be more than willing to pander to the general homophobic african american population and do their bidding to be in their good graces.
hells kitchen guy
Who can respect someone who hides in the closet?
Does it matter HKG? She is entitled to her privacy. Bottom line. Hells Kitchen Guy I have to respectfully disagree with you on that.
And by the way. What is gained by her (Coming out of the closet) so to speak. She becomes the savior for today with the LGBT Community and because she’s black it will be short lived….And then what?????
Donna live your life.
And who along with Leah daughtery went balistic when it was thought gays might try tying gay rights to civil Rights how could we we after all even though the 2 are Lesbians and i saw the clip and she was way off base referring to blue color people as if they should be scrapped off her feet and the party did’nt need them cause Obama brought together another coalition for the party yeah right. and Beagali called her on it and she did’nt like and even Anderson Cooper made a coment that just maybe Hillarys supporters might not agree with her!
Obama supporters keep going on with the false impression that everything is Hillary’s fault, and that the saintly Obama never engaged in mud slinging … like nasty Chicago politics, or circumventing Michigan’s and Florida’s popular vote, by refusing a revote … and circumventing democracy by having the DNC only count half votes … furthermore, the truth is that Obama’s supporters have slung tons of mud in Obama’s behalf, with countless blogs insulting Senator Clinton. And now, arrogant condescending Obama supporters who need us Clinton supporters to get their rock star elected, are still posting nasty blogs about Hillary and her supporters. Well, I’m one of millions of HIllary supporters who is going to vote for McCain, and I’m going to try to get as many friends and family members as I can to vote for McCain as well.
