Hillary Clinton plagiarizes Kerry Healey

"Projection" is a psychological phenomenon where an individual accuses another individual of engaging in behavior that the first individual is, in fact, engaged in.

Take Hillary Clinton, for instance. She's accusing Barack Obama of using Deval Patrick's response to her attack that Obama is "all words and no action." What Hillary Clinton fails to acknowledge is that she stole Kerry Healey's line of attack on Deval Patrick. It was Kerry Healey in 2006 who taunted Deval Patrick with being "all talk and no action." Deval Patrick skewered her with his response.

If Hillary Clinton can't come up with a line of attack that is original (or true), then I don't see why we should expect an original response. The truth is that untalented, unimaginative people have always attacked talented, imaginative people with the canard that they were "all talk and no action." Talented, imaginative people have always responded by listing people who said great things shortly before they accomplished great things.

Time and again Hillary Clinton has revealed herself to be the candidate of "no." No hope. No change. No imagination. No talent.

No thank you.

A co-chairman of Hillary's Michigan campaign and has a line that's sure to drive a whole bunch of red state governors up the wall:

"Superdelegates are not second-class delegates," says Joel Ferguson, who will be a superdelegate if Michigan is seated. "The real second-class delegates are the delegates that are picked in red-state caucuses that are never going to vote Democratic."
