Clinton Revealed

The Atlantic Monthly should have an amusing story now that they obtained internal memos from the Clinton campaign. The Trail reports:

Just when you thought everyone had moved on… former advisers to Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton are in a tizzy over an upcoming piece in the Atlantic Monthly that chronicles the inner workings of the now-defunct campaign. Of particular concern are nearly 200 internal memos that the author, Josh Green, obtained — 130 or so of which he plans to scan in and post online. When the piece is published sometime next week, readers will be able to scroll through the memos, from senior strategists such as Mark Penn, Harold Ickes and Geoff Garin, and see what exactly was going on inside the infamously fractured Clinton organization. That has some former team members in a panic.

Actually we knew that it is not the case that everyone had moved on–which might make these emails even more amusing. The PUMA groups continue to repeat all the nonsense put out by the Clinton campaign which anyone with half a functioning brain would have seen through. I doubt that the memos outright admit that most of their claims during the campaign were absurdities raised in the hopes of political gain, but possibly the memos might give some clue. Unfortunately those kooks in the PUMA groups who continue to repeat the Clinton talking points are probably incapable of analyzing these memos rationally.

    We’ve all felt the surge of emotions, those of us who comment on blogs.  When a tidbit comes through the grapevine that supports – even marginally – our viewpoint it feels like scoring a point in a very big, very important game.  And somehow the info’s veracity doesn’t matter as much as it should.  And somehow, if the info needs a little twisting and shoving to get it to fit our views, that’s not only ok but satisfying.  It wasn’t an easy score; it required our finesse to get it to fit.
    This is mindset that the PUMA people are coming from. I’ve been in similar mindsets, but have mostly resisted thelure. I and others like me have been swamped, though, by those who twist and shove and SCREAM and never give in to the “other side’s” arguments.  They are right.  That’s their starting point and nothing short of a nuclear strike will move them off it.
    These new memos from Hill’s campaign’s big dogs will probably show a lot of dirty tricks and cynicism.  It should put the final nail in the Hill for VP coffin.  But if I’m wrong I’ll admit it.  If they show that they really were pure and honest and trying to be the best campaign ever, I will be shocked, yes, but also a tiny bit more likely to forgive Hillary.  She would still make an awful VP, however, and I’m RIGHT about THAT!!!!!!!! 🙂

    The memos may or may not provide evidence for the dirty tricks. It is certainly possible that, even though they never expected them to be published, the campaign staffers still showed some discretion with regards to what they put down on paper.
