The Only Blog That Matters

Just when it seemed like the news cycle over the next few months would be unbearable, I learn from Henry that Fafblog is back:

So now everybody's all "oh, Hillary Clinton can't win the nomination" and "oh, Hillary Clinton can't be president" and "oh, Hillary Clinton, haven't they sedated her yet." Well that's just talking crazy talk! There's tons a stuff that can happen between now and the convention to make Hillary Clinton the nominee, so you just cheer up, Hillary Clinton people! Here's just a few of the many electoral scenarios that could make Hillary Clinton the next president of the United States.

  • Barack Obama is suddenly eaten by giant pill bugs.
  • On the way to the convention Barack Obama is confronted by gangs of outraged delegates from Florida and Michigan, who feed him to their giant pill bugs.
  • Hillary Clinton wins Puerto Rico, just as expected. In a surprise twist however Puerto Rico turns out to be ten thousand times the size of Puerto Rico.
  • An obscure quirk of DNC bylaws forces the nomination to be settled by spelling bee. Hillary Clinton gets the word "cat," while Barack Obama is eaten by giant pill bugs....

  • Here's the whole playbook. And don't overlook the recent, exclusive interview with HRC.

    Evidently Fafblog started up again a couple of months ago, after a hiatus of about two years, but this is the first I've heard of it.

    A recent post there sums up the more thoughtful discussions within parts of the liberal wonkosphere: "When you blow stuff up and kill people it's important that you blow stuff up and kill people in a way that maintains international respect and legitimacy for future blow-stuff-uppery and people-killing."
