Sullivan Fears Indestructible Clintons

What keeps homo-journo Andrew Sullivan up at night? The Clintons, “a horror movie that never ends…”


Obama-loving Sullivan
took to The Sunday Times yesterday to posit some Romero-inspired theories on America’s most prominent couple, Hillary and Bill:

The Clintons have always had a touch of the zombies about them: unkillable, they move relentlessly forward, propelled by a bloodlust for Republicans or uppity Democrats who dare to question their supremacy. You can’t escape; you can’t hide; and you can’t win.

The media are marveling at the Clintons’ several near-death political experiences in this campaign. Hasn’t it occurred to them how creepily familiar all this is? The Clintons live off psychodrama. They both love to push themselves to the brink of catastrophe and then accomplish the last-minute, nail-biting self-rescue. Before too long the entire story becomes about them…

Well, what else are the Clintons supposed to do? Acknowledge that Hillary’s odds actually look pretty slim? No way! They talk her up, extend a gracious hand to “Veep” Barack Obama and let the press do the rest. Too bad Obama’s not rolling over and playing dead.
