I Don’t Think It Means What You Think It Means

Comparing Obama to Robert Redford in The Hustler

Some in Big Media are beginning to see The Hustler for what he is:

If you haven’t seen the 1961 movie “The Hustler” starring Paul Newman and Jackie Gleason, you should – it’s a classic.

As I watched the Democratic New Hampshire debate Saturday night, that movie popped into my mind.

Fast Eddie, a young, vigorous and skillful pool player, takes on the legendary Minnesota Fats, the old champion. They agree to play and the last man standing wins the pot.

Fast Eddie runs the table in game after game but as the hours go by he begins to tire. The Fat Man just keeps coming, steady and relentlessness. During one break, as Fast Eddie slumps in the corner exhausted, the Fat Man washes up, applies some talcum, comes out of the washroom and says, “Fast Eddie, let’s play some pool!”

And in the end, the Fat Man walks out the winner.

Yes, but read the rest of the story and watch the rest of the movie, Fast Eddie beats Minnesota Fats over and over and he finally concedes saying, “I quit Eddie, I can’t beat you”. Hilarious!

Let’s get real here!

We are Borg

More fun:

The Democratic nomination will be determined by Democrats. Democrats want a Democratic President who fights for Democratic progressive values. The Democratic nomination will not be won with flowery words. Hillary understands that actions speak louder than words.

That’s right – actions speak louder than words. And talk is still cheap.

Democrats will nominate a Democrat who fights for them. Democrats will nominate a Democrat who has fought for them and will fight for them – not merely with words, but with actions. A Democrat who fights for UNIVERSAL healthcare. A Democrat who is present when there is a fight to be fought.

Hillary is a fighter – fighting for us. We will fight for Hillary.
