I know the rules on diary length; however, sometimes there are snapshot moments that deserve a pedestal all their own.
The New York Times' political blog delivers one from today's Hillary press opportunity:
"I have continued to sound the alarm," she said at an airport press conference in Burbank, Calif. "Sometimes I feel like Paulette Revere: the recession is coming, the recession is coming..."
Does anything else need to be said? Saying she has "jumped the shark" doesn't quite do this justice.
Between the debut of the insipid 3 a.m. economic crisis ad yesterday and this quote today, this campaign has gone from tone-deaf to tone-dead.
Please, someone get the referee to step in and stop this travesty.
