Hillary Clinton and the Vast Right Wing Conspiracy of Doom: The Sequel!

That’s right, Hillary is on to us again! And in her usual uniting, non-partisan way, makes it clear whom we need to fear:

We are headed to a brave, new world of extremism, and we need to make clear we're not going there," she told a sellout crowd of 2,000 who paid $100 a head to see her. "We stand against their radical, reactionary right-wing agenda."

Clinton sounded every bit the stumping presidential contender as she slammed the Republicans for driving up the national debt, wrecking overseas alliances and leading the nation on a domestic path "well outside the mainstream."

She lambasted Republican members of Congress as "extras in the movie 'I Robot' " who "mindlessly rubberstamp the agenda of this administration" and want to do "little more than fund the military and build some highways."

I didn’t know robots had a “radical, reactionary, right-wing agenda”…

A “brave new world of extremism”? Would that be your husband, picking candidates by race or gender, not by qualification, in order to fit a doctrine of political correctness?

So "funding the military" is a bad thing? Can we assume that you intend to de-fund it if elected?

How can a Republican President, a Republican-dominated Congress, and a Republican-controlled Senate be “well outside the mainstream” if these are all ELECTED positions?

Wait ! John Kerry can answer that for you!

BOSTON, Massachusetts (AP) -- Many voters in last year's presidential election were denied access to the polls through trickery and intimidation, former Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry told a voters' group Sunday.

Kerry also cited examples Sunday of how people were duped into not voting.
"Leaflets are handed out saying Democrats vote on Wednesday, Republicans vote on Tuesday. People are told in telephone calls that if you've ever had a parking ticket, you're not allowed to vote," he said.

Anyone who could possibly have believed, based on a random leaflet, that there were separate days for separate parties to vote, is too stupid to be allowed into a voting booth.

But then again, that’s whom the Dems are counting on, right?

UPDATE: Speaking of conspiracies; the media still whores it out for the Democrats...Instapundit Glenn Reynolds opines that:

I think that we'll need to see a few Republicans from somewhere south and west of Connecticut turning on him before it's a real signal.

The Democratic Media Party know this as well, and they are trying sooo hard, as Robert Novack reports today:

On March 24, former Congressman Bob Livingston was sent an e-mail by a New York Times editorial page staffer suggesting he write an op-ed essay. Would Livingston, who in 1998 gave up certain elevation to be House speaker because of a sexual affair, write about how Majority Leader Tom DeLay should now act under fire? In a subsequent conversation, it was made clear the Times wanted the prominent Republican to say DeLay should step aside for the good of the party.

Livingston in effect declined by responding that if he wrote anything for the Times, it would be pro-DeLay. But this remarkable case of that august newspaper fishing for an op-ed piece makes it appear part of a calculated campaign to bring down the single most powerful Republican in Congress.

Times editorial page staffer Tobin Harshaw was quoted as saying:

''we are seeking those who would go on the record or state for the good of the party he (DeLay) should step aside.''

Here's what the Times is playing at:

Would this editorial start a chain reaction of Republican House members abandoning DeLay, much as Democrats turned against Speaker Jim Wright in 1989?

The Times can only hope. They'll keep trying....
