I thought they changed the name to MOSS magazine.

Hey, Hunter Thompson is dead, close the magazine.

Obama doesn't know it yet but this cover is going to hurt him more than it will help him. The cover is cheesy. The superman pose and the halo effect behind him is so over the top it's just stupid. I am happy Obama has a lot of young people exited about politics but they are not enough to get him elected. If he insist on pretending he is the messiah he is going to turn a lot of people off. Even these young people are going to start jumping off the bandwagon when Obama becomes to commercialized.

Obama is 2 minutes away from being old news and the Rolling Stones is irrelevant. By May of this year Obama would have been passe. You can quote me on that.

Did Clinton Win Ohio on a Lie?

Suppose someone in the North Korean government released a false story that shifted a key American election. If Bush were negatively affected, we might be bombing Pyongyang by now. But this just happened with what Hillary Clinton called "NAFTAgate" Without it, she might never have won Ohio, or her margin would have been minuscule.

But as a Canadian Broadcasting Company story reveals, practically the entire story was a lie, one that played so central a role in Clinton's Ohio victory as to thoroughly taint any claim she raises about a swing state mandate.

As the Ohio primary approached, Obama was steadily closing what a month earlier had been a 20-point lead in the polls. He pointed out that the NAFTA trade agreement was a centerpiece of Bill Clinton's term and that it cost massive numbers of industrial jobs.

Instead of creating a trade-fueled boom, NAFTA helped hollow out America's industrial base, with over 200,000 manufacturing jobs disappearing in Ohio alone since the 2000 election. Even Republicans I talked with while calling the state just before the primary made clear that they thought it was a disaster.

Given these sentiments, Hillary chose not to defend her husband's actions, but instead claimed Obama was distorting her position because she'd privately opposed the agreement at the time, had "long been a critic" and now similarly supported stronger labor and environmental standards.

Echoing her reinvention on the Iraq War, these claims were flat-out nonsense. As David Sirota points out, she'd praised NAFTA repeatedly in public settings from the time of its inception, even praising corporations for mounting "a very effective business effort" on behalf of its passage. And as Obama highlighted their contrasting positions and approaches on this and other issues, he was gaining in the

Clinton Cribs from the Bush Florida Stolen Election in 2000

If you wanted to compare the playbook of the Clinton campaign since New Hampshire, you'd find the right precedent in the Bush v. Gore race, only Clinton would be channeling Bush, not Gore.

Let's look at the facts -- as our columnist P.M. Carpenter -- has pointed out today. By almost all media projections, Obama will finish the run of primaries ahead in the popular primary vote, ahead in pledged delegates, and ahead in the number of states won. In a democracy, we call this winning the election.

And to boot, Obama has won by consistently bigger margins than Clinton, and has led McCain in most polls. (Obama will probably even end up beating Clinton in delegates awarded in the Texas primary, where she barely won the contest in the popular vote -- and allegedly with the help of dittoheads who Limbaugh told to vote for her because she would unify the Republican Party against her and be the weaker Dem candidate in the fall.)

But Clinton rules have a different set of standards, just like Bush did. They bring the heavy artillery representing the entrenched moneyed interests of the Republicrat status quo in D.C. to redefine democracy.

It's no longer who wins the election; it's who bullies their way into mugging the process through threatened lawsuits, flip-flopping like a dying fish about DNC rules that the Clinton campaign originally agreed to, bullying superdelegates, and denying that the will of the people counts for anything.

So, the Clinton campaign today (and if Obama had lost 12 straight primaries, you can be sure the Clinton campaign would have "worked the refs" hard enough to have made him withdraw long ago) is doing what Bush did in 2000, shaking down democracy.

Obama is not a new kind of politician. "The day after New Year's 1996, operatives for Barack Obama filed into a barren hearing room of the Chicago Board of Election Commissioners.

There they began the tedious process of challenging hundreds of signatures on the nominating petitions of state Sen. Alice Palmer, the longtime progressive activist from the city's South Side. And they kept challenging petitions until every one of Obama's four Democratic primary rivals was forced off the ballot.

Fresh from his work as a civil rights lawyer and head of a voter registration project that expanded access to the ballot box, Obama launched his first campaign for the Illinois Senate saying he wanted to empower disenfranchised citizens."

smear, smear, smear. it's all you clintonistas can do.

Is that the cover in the corner? For real? Because it's hilarious. It looks like a movie poster.
06:33 PM on 03/06/2008
Poor Hillary will go back to the Senate when all is said and done, and you'll be left alone, with your box of kleenex. Boo Hoo Hoo.
03:18 PM on 03/06/2008
Look at how dark Obama looks on that cover!!! How dare you, Rolling Stone!!!! OK, Obama supporters, let's boycott Rolling Stone!!!!!!! Wah!

the only candidate that i've seen crying is shillary.

The editorial is nice, but the cover is RIDICULOUS. That superman pose is a bigger liberal fantasy than the West Wing. And "A New Hope" IS a fantasy reference; it's the name of the first Star Wars movie.

This reminds me of the time Village Voice put picture on their cover of Howard Dean's face carved into Mount Rushmore. And look how that turned out.

Liberals are so quick to annoint "saints" within the party as soon as someone opens their mouth and doesn't have horse dung fly out. It strikes me as desperate.

That cover is definitely over the top. The aura around Obama was a really stupid idea. What a shame.

Forgot to mention in my last post the Jay Rockefeller endorsement of Obama really set the doubt in me. Anyone that a-hole endorses has to be a "chosen one".
08:30 AM on 03/06/2008
I'm no Clinton fan, but this media lovefest with Obama makes me reeeally suspicious of Obama. Remember when they were all Hillary's Media (or for that matter, Bill's)?.

I'm not convinced Obama's the "real thing" yet. Sorry to burst the bubble of Obama fans, nothing personal, but he wouldn't get this much media love if he wasn't somehow a "chosen one". This whole exercise seems to be political theater. In the end, we will end up with Hillary as either the nominee or the Veep. So we get the NWO no matter if Obama wins or not.

You're not a Clinton fan but you do her dirty work.

How "impartial" of you.

I don't know exactly what Rolling Stone will garnish for him, but thats a hot cover!

And Kanye for VP! Too bad the 11-17 year old demo that Rolling Stone caters to can't vote.

The luster is peeling off this worn, tired, threadbare tirade.
