A nice lady I barely know overheard me raving about the PA elections, and said something like, “Well, at first I was a Clinton supporter, but then she went negative. Then I was a Barack Obama supporter, but he just seems like such a whiner. I’ll vote for whoever’s not McCain, but I won’t be happy about it!”
Obama’s a whiner? I’d seen lots of blog comments where HRC supporters called Obama supporters “whiners”, but no actual Obama whining. I could see thinking he’s arrogant or “weak” (of course if he was half as vicious as HRC or angry as McCain he’d be a terrifying angry black man)… but a whiner? Huh? Where the hell did this spin come from?
