All Clinton Team Does Is Fight Each Other, Always
What happens when you're losing and your new ad disappoints and a fiery Mark Penn is in a room with some equally fiery ad-maker lady and a crybaby political director? A melee of words happens, and internal fissures are blown wide open! This is precisely what happened last week at Clinton HQ.
The Wall Street Journal knows what's up:
But the campaign has something of a shellshocked feel, as staffers privately chew over a blowup last week where internal frictions flared into the open. Clinton campaign operatives say it happened as top Clinton advisers gathered in Arlington, Va., campaign headquarters to preview a TV commercial. "Your ad doesn't work," strategist Mark Penn yelled at ad-maker Mandy Grunwald. "The execution is all wrong," he said, according to the operatives.
"Oh, it's always the ad, never the message," Ms. Grunwald fired back, say the operatives. The clash got so heated that political director Guy Cecil left the room, saying, "I'm out of here."
Ha ha, they are so screwed and know they're going to lose! Did you see this new Rasmussen poll, in fact? It has these same Clintons losing by 12 percentage points now -- to a black man, of all things! What's next, uh, uh, some important Kennedy loses to George Jefferson?
