When you screw up…

…do it big:

NEW YORK Rick Karlin of the Albany (N.Y.) Times-Union has created a bit of a buzz in the newly race-charged race between Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama by posting on the paper’s blog, Capitol Confidential, the following:

“I suppose there could be lots of tea leaf reading in this one, but now its AG [Attorney General] Andrew Cuomo on Talk 1300, minutes after the governor came on. Cuomo, to be fair, has been on the radio show a few times, if memory serves me, but his take on Hillary’s win in NH is that that small-state primary with its retail politics is a good thing. ‘It’s not a TV crazed race. Frankly you can’t buy your way into it,’ Cuomo said. ‘You can’t shuck and jive at a press conference,’ he added. ‘All those moves you can make with the press don’t work when you’re in someone’s living room.’”

I’m betting Bill Clinton’s face just exploded.


We were all right in being wrong….

…at least that’s the comforting thought. My personal theory is that in a Hyatt Regency in Manchester, New Hampshire, a hexagram has been burnt into the carpet, and hotel workers are trying to figure out whether to replace the rug or just seal the room permanently.
