This bud's for you (Maureen Dowd, May 4, 2008, NY Times)

Cherry-bombing the word "pansy" into the discourse, Governor Mike Easley of North Carolina said Hillary made "Rocky Balboa look like a pansy." Paul Gipson, president of a steelworkers local in Portage, Indiana, hailed her "testicular fortitude," before ripping into "Gucci-wearing, latte-drinking, self-centered, egotistical people that have damaged our lifestyle." James Carville helpfully told Eleanor Clift of Newsweek that if Hillary gave Obama one of her vehicles of testicular fortitude, "they'd both have two."

Then came the Big Dog, crazy like a fox, for the coup de graceless. Campaigning in Clarksburg, West Virginia, he said that his scrappy wife can win working-class voters, as compared with Obama's Viognier-and-Volvo set.

"The great divide in this country is not by race or even income, it's by those who think they are better than everyone else and think they should play by a different set of rules," the former president said. "In West Virginia and Arkansas, we know that when we see it."

Bill Clinton not only ran as not a Democrat, but got to beat up on Paul Tsongas. Senator Obama on the other hand has retrograde--feminine--politics and is getting butt-whipped by a girl.
