The Bourgeoisie, Glass Ceilings, and Happy Feelings

The Submarines - You, Me, & the Bourgeoisie
“It's time to be so brutally honest about
the way we think long
for something fine
when we pine for higher ceilings

and bourgeois happy feelings”
Before the presidential campaign of Senator Hillary Clinton spirals into a final rise or decline (or remains in this purgatory), it’s time for an honorary political deathbed post. Will she live for another fight?

Let me just say: I've long admired Ms. Clinton shattering glass ceilings, for forging new paths, But her campaign (a video summary) was the pinnacle of political pugnacity, attacking fellow Senator Barack Obama for his high-minded elementary school aspirations, his dubious not-really-a-Muslim actually-a-Christian status, his Elvis-like youth and ability to get voters (even the press!) excited (though he wasn’t so daring as to dance like the King), and the list goes on. Oh the gaffes! Mr. Obama says she’s likeable “enough,” that Pennsylvania voters are “bitter” and cling to the something or other, and it’s like those “working, hard-working Americans, white Americans” aren’t voting for him or whatever. The blind (Mark Penn) led the blindingly blind (Mrs. Clinton herself), while Mr. Clinton unsuccessfully attempted to have Mr. Obama’s head on a platter (consider Florida and Michigan?). Judas may have been: Governor Bill Richardson, or possibly the Reverend Jeremiah Wright.

I'm glad to see this race, and the consequential Democratic squabbling, over.
The lovely Submarines released Honeysuckle Weeks in May, and ever since I've been floating underwater in an ocean of pop bliss. Come to sea with me!
