The Clintonite factionRemember how awesome the news was this time last year, all full of “Hillary Clinton called Barack Obama a plagiarist” and “Mark Penn sucks balls” and that time the governor of New York got caught with an unimaginatively tattooed hooker who had a Hit Song on Myspace for like a day and a half? Jesus God, those were glorious days. We had no AIG to worry about, our dollars were still worth a dollar, and this here web site wrote about politics instead of boring financial news all the time.

In that spirit, we hope a new committee convened to hammer out the Democratic primary schedule in 2012 will quickly devolve into backbiting, recriminations, and heavy subterfuge. It’s unlikely, given that most of the committee appointees are Obama minions who will just move to permanently strip Florida and Michigan of all their delegates, plus who really cares about the primaries when the president is just going to run unopposed? Sure, there might be a few fun Senate and House run-offs, but nothing as exciting as Hillary Clinton stomping around South Texas in that awful yellow jacket and Barack Obama forever disgracing himself by talking about how bitter white people are so bitter and white.

A bunch of states will probably angle for a late primary placement the next time around so that even if 2012 is completely boring, 2016 can be another nail-biter. Of course, this only works if there are at least two (2) desirable and credible candidates who fail to establish an early and insurmountable primary lead (or, as in 2008, two candidates who manage to persuade the media that their rivalry is a story worth pursuing even though the primary was effectively wrapped up shortly after Super Tuesday). But everybody knows that 2016 is Hillary’s to lose, so who cares, unless she runs against Barney Frank or something.

  1. Where have you gone, Mrs Christian,
    Your nation turns it’s crazee eyes to you.
    What’s that you say, Mrs. Christian.
    The inadequate male has won and here to stay,
    Hey hey hey.

  2. Silly democrat party. There won’t be a 2012, 2016 or any other presidential election. Hopey’s been installed as communiesocialistmuslim dictator for life. Sheesh, where have you been.

  3. We had no AIG to worry about

    We did, however, have Bear Stearns, which was going to cause the end of the world as we know it. Good times, man, good times.

  4. Never having previously been criticized for anything in his entire life, Geithner freaks out, sneaks a MAC-9 into the Oval Office…

    Biden, to everyone’s surprise, is a highly effective president. AMTRAK is lavished with subsidies and runs high-speed rail everywhere. As oil falls back to $18/barrel, the Saudi regime can no longer withstand a populist uprising in its outstandlingly well-equipped-and-trained (by us) army. The People’s Republic of Arabia liberates Iraq, Iran, Syria and Egypt. Israel abandons the West Bank and Gaza. Gas drops to 75 cents a gallon. The Dow hits 12,000, then 13,000. Biden’s elected for the first time in 2012, and becomes a shoe-in for 2016, as the homebuilding industry recovers and grows.

  5. [re=271864]Uncle Glenny[/re]: Me three. Very Wizard of Oz-ie. “Wow…suddenly everything’s in color…and why are Hilary’s feet sticking out from under my house?”

  6. We had no AIG to worry about um yeah because caring about AIG when they were actually setting fire to the economy would have been awfully silly; but paying attention to a couple hundred million in bonuses after the fact, is totally the way to go.

  7. [re=271852]V572625694[/re]: I can haz hallucinations? Seriously, is not fair not to share the good drugz with fellow Wonkette folk.
