Hillary stars in the Crying Game in New Hampshire: McCain wins too!

Clinton and McCain’s fairy tale ending in New Hampshire

Just like the movie, the Crying Game, what a surprise ending! Watered by tear power Hillary Rodham Clinton becomes something that she wasn’t in Iowa… a winner.

Not since Paris Hilton cried her way out of jail have we seen the mighty affects of the tear. Senator Clinton showed that not only can crying get you out of jail, but in New Hampshire a planted question and a staged cry is worth one upset political win over the front runner Barack Obama! You cry girl!

In the words of former President Bill Clinton the New Hampshire primaries was the stuff of fairy tales. Recently President Clinton described the whole Obama campaign as a fairy tale claiming that no one is holding Mr. Obama to any standard of truth. But excuse me Mr. President in that case your wife’s whole campaign is a fairly tale because she’s running on your record and she is calling it her experience!
“Second, it is wrong that Senator Obama got to go through 15 debates trumpeting his superior judgment and how he had been against the war in every year, numerating the years, and never got asked one time, not once, ‘Well, how could you say, that when you said in 2004 you didn’t know how you would have voted on the resolution?

You said in 2004 there was no difference between you and George Bush on the war and you took that speech you’re now running on off your website in 2004 and there’s no difference in your voting record and Hillary’s ever since?’ Give me a break.

“This whole thing is the biggest fairy tale I’ve ever seen.” …
-- Former President Bill Clinton.
Speaking of fairy tales John McCain with virtual no National Republican support because of his contrarian positions in the Senate, positions that often put him at odds with Republicans won in New Hampshire too.

McCain’s gang of fourteen which prevented Republicans from stopping Democrat filibusters of President Bush judicial nominees plus the McCain-Kennedy Immigration Reform Bill which is believed to be amnesty for illegal aliens by almost everyone except John McCain are the reasons that McCain has virtually no National support among Conservative Republicans, and are the reasons that he won in the blue state of New Hampshire but won’t win anywhere that there is a Conservative majority.
McCain-Kennedy would establish a worker visa program that would allow employers to temporarily hire foreign citizens to fill jobs that cannot be filled with U.S. laborers. That is not a bad idea.

However, the act proposes to allow individuals unlawfully here to stay and sign up for the program by paying a $1,500 fine. That is a bad idea. It is, in effect, an amnesty--which undercuts the rule of law by rewarding those who have acted wrongly and will only encourage further illegal entry.—

McCain has very little money and virtually no Conservative Republican support so to have both Senator Clinton and Senator McCain win in New Hampshire reflects on the Liberal politics there not on the political viability of either Clinton or McCain.

Enjoy this moment in time Senators Clinton and McCain, a moment when reality is suspended by the blue state politics of New Hampshire, a moment when even John McCain can dream that he could be the President of the United States of America. And then before too long awake to the realities that this is a long campaign trail and not every primary will offer up fairy tale endings where the front runner loses a double digit lead in the polls and is defeated by crocodile tears.

Nor will the fairy tale ending of a rogue politician, who pokes his finger in the eye of his party at every opportunity that he gets, winning the day, will happen again somewhere out of the blue state of New Hampshire. And in the immortal words of fairy tale the Wizard of Oz:

Somewhere, out of the blue state, way far away.
There are Republican voters that won’t let John McCain carry the day.
Somewhere, out of the blue state, skies are blue.
And the dreams that John McCain dare to dream
Really won’t come true.

And in the words of former President Bill Clinton, Give me a break! This thing is the biggest fairy tale that I’ve ever seen.
