Monday Disturbing Video: How Can Democrats Hate Obama So Much?

The first -- and, more likely than not, the last -- in our new series "Monday Disturbing Video."

This lady has the right to think and do whatever she wants with her vote, but I am constantly amazed at the vitriolic reaction that so many Democrats seem to have to Barack Obama's now inevitable nomination as the Democratic candidate for President.

For my part, I can explain my strong dislike for Senator Clinton, and it has nothing to do with the fact that she is a woman. (We have tried to do so, both comically and seriously, here, here, here and here. And who can forget here and here?). What I have not heard is a corresponding reasoned explanation from Democrats who just hate Obama (like this woman in the video below) for any reason other than his race. I am not talking about people voting for Hillary because they think she has more experience, or they prefer her health care plan, or think the gas tax holiday was a sound idea, etc., etc. I don't agree with those people, but they are fine and normal and well-adjusted people in my book (well, maybe not people who thought the gas tax holiday was a good idea, but you know what I mean). It's just that I cannot fathom what this guy has done to bring out the absolute worst in members of a political party that lays claim to being the more open and inclusive of the two major parties.

And so, without further ado . . .

Equality for all ... because we *all* get to have a former president campaign alongside us, and carpet-bag our way to a New York senate seat.

Women are "second class citizens", and blacks aren't? LOL.

The hardcore (i.e. irrational) Clinton supporters are hilarious.

"They threw us down the tubes!"

Do you think she means, like, the Internet?
