Fear and loathing in lefty blog-land

The move on the Left from Hillary to Obama has all the characteristics of a nasty divorce. A few days ago I wrote about one of my associates who transferred his affection from the Clintons to Obama. He spoke about Hillary like she was a wife who had slept with his best friend.

The expressions of loathing are especially graphic in the blogosphere. Thanks to Powerline we get a glimpse of what the Left is saying when they are not using four letter words to describe Hillary.

Posts like this one from John Aravosis, with the title "Go away you horrible human being," are almost enough to induce me to read left-wing blogs:

Why is the media even covering her? The only stories that should be written about Hillary Clinton is how much damage she's causing our party. . . Five months ago we all felt that we had 3 great candidates. Now, far too many of us loathe Hillary Clinton, and she has done her racist best to ensure that her supporters can't stand Barack Obama either.

I actually loathe her. She makes me yell at the TV like she's George Bush, and no one other than George Bush makes me yell at the TV - until now. I actually can't stand her or her husband any more. I defended her. I defended her husband. And now I'm actually wondering if the Republicans weren't right about them. That's how bad [sic] she has damaged her reputation. People who actually liked you, who actually helped you, who actually defended you, LOATHE you now. Call me a Clinton-hater all you like, but people like me were the ones who had your back. And we never will again.

People like Aravosis "had the back" of the perjurer president and his corrupt first lady for the same reason they shriek at them now -- overwrought, opportunistic partisanship, coupled with a total lack of perspective. The use of the "loathe" three times in a short post, and its capitalization the last time, pretty much says it all.
