Hillary Wins Ohio

Something happened tonight that I must admit I never thought was possible.

As election results filtered in from the Ohio and Texas Democratic Primaries, I found myself pulling for Hillary Clinton. It was kind of fun really, watching her popular vote lead grow in Ohio while she slowly caught up and slightly passed Obama in Texas.

I don't even know why I was pulling for her really, other than I think a contentious fight between socialist candidate #1 and socialist candidate #2 might provide me with some good entertaining fodder for the next few months.

But then, shortly after the Ohio contest was called for Hillary, she swaggered out on stage and began her nails-on-a-chalkboard-too-annoying-to-listen-to victory screed in which she crowed about her readiness to be Commander in Chief and her ability to tackle this country's economic problems. As I sprinted to turn down the television I accidentally kicked the coffee table.

The swollen foot was probably worth it all now that I think about it, but I have learned my lesson. I vow to you here and now that I will never, ever, ever, never, ever pull for Hillary in any election of any kind again. Who cares about my foot. My ears will not take it.
