'My discomfort with a major theme of Senator Obama's campaign'
Barney defends the '90s.
Of course those opposing him would also defend the '90s. Isn't that the point of '90s criticism? ... A Hub Blog friend earlier today summarized the pickle we're in regarding Hillary's win last night. He bemoaned the potential 28 straight years of Bush/Clinton/Bush/Clinton rule -- and all the characters who would come out of the woodwork to make a Hillary victory complete. Not just the familiar tired Clintonites. But also the familiar tired anti-Clintonites. After he rattled off a list of dreadful right-wing characters who might make a post-'90s comeback, I noted that he forgot to mention R. Emmett Tyrrell. To which he responded:
"I feel it it will be Tom DeLay coming back from the dead. Hillary's election will justify their existence."
Barney did mention DeLay but he came up with a name the Hub Blog friend and I completely forgot: Newt. ... How would a '90s reunion be complete without Newt? I can't wait. ...Update
notices that Mitt has his own Things That Wouldn't Leave:
Rush Limbaugh had some fun last week pointing out all the old relics from the Clinton Administration standing behind HRC when she gave her (Iowa) concession speech.
There are plenty of relics on the Republican side too, and Romney's instinct to turn to them doesn't impress me much.
