Sad, funny... and true.
Of the comparable toughness between Sens. Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y., and Barack Obama, D-Ill., Clinton adviser James Carville tells Newsweek: "If she gave him one of her cojones, they'd both have two."
(Carville also says Clinton needs to win both Indiana and North Carolina on Tuesday. "The onus is on her. She's got to do better than tie. If she wins Indiana and North Carolina, she's the nominee. She's got to shock the system, and she may be shocking it.") [...]
A few days ago, as ABC News' Eloise Harper reported, Paul Gibson, the president of a local steelworkers Union Chapter 6787 in Indiana, announced support for Clinton, saying it's "going to take an individual with testicular fortitude" to deal with the nation's problems.
In February, Jack Nicholson announced that "Hillary is the best man for the job."
In relaying this to crowds, Clinton changed this to "real men vote for Hillary."
Cherry-bombing the word "pansy" into the discourse, Gov. Mike Easley of North Carolina said Hillary made "Rocky Balboa look like a pansy."
Paul Gipson, president of a steelworkers local in Portage, Ind., hailed her "testicular fortitude," before ripping into "Gucci-wearing, latte-drinking, self-centered, egotistical people that have damaged our lifestyle."
James Carville helpfully told Eleanor Clift of Newsweek that if Hillary gave Obama one of her vehicles of testicular fortitude, "they'd both have two."
Then came the Big Dog, crazy like a fox, for the coup de graceless. Campaigning in Clarksburg, W. Va., he said that his scrappy wife can win working-class voters, as compared with Obama's Viognier-and-Volvo set.
"The great divide in this country is not by race or even income, it's by those who think they are better than everyone else and think they should play by a different set of rules," the former president said. "In West Virginia and Arkansas, we know that when we see it."
