"The humanizing moment" Bollocks!

Hillary Clinton has beaten Barak Obama in the New Hampshire Democratic primary

At NYT.com The Caucus reported that "Terry McAuliffe, Mrs. Clinton’s chairman, on MSNBC attributes her apparent victory to her tearful moment yesterday: “That humanizing moment yesterday,” he says. “That did it.”"

That wasn't a tearful moment. It was pure theatre by an expert performer. Have a look.

But the "tearful moment" was reported seriously all over the place. So it worked a treat.

Schmucks.

i love that you worked the words 'bollocks' and 'schmucks' into this post! they're not used nearly enough in political commentary. i think you're right about that moment.

Maybe I should have said tosh and fools? What would Montgomery Burns say?
