Obama Girl to Hillary: Step off (the stage)

Wassup, Y'all!

You knew this chick would pop back up at some point but the said part about it? It takes a faux Youtube celebrity like Obama Girl (Amber Lee Ettinger) to publicly state the message that many democratic superdelegates seem unwilling to do - tell Sister Hillary it's time to go so that Smooth Barack can start focusing 100% on John McCain and the fall general election...

By all accounts, Sister Hill seems determined to stay in the race at least until June, but if she can't win the nomination without carrying the party down with her, what would be the point of such a Pyhrric victory? I can think of only one - ego. In that regard (only), Boy King Kwame has nothing on her.

Way back in February my boy D-Splash from tried to deliver this message using the Andy Sipowicz bad cop approach. Now Obama Girl is tryin' to deliver the message using the firm love Dr. Phil approach, but I still don't see any inclination on Sister Hillary's part to exit stage left. That leaves us with the final approach.

It's a well know southsider approach. A necessary skill honed over years of havin' to deal with friends and family who never seem to know when the party's over and when to go home. It's 2:00 in the mornin' and you've still got some knucklehead in your crib, lookin' in your 'frid, wonderin' if you can slap together some eggs before he borrows your car to go on another beer run. In this case, you simply open the front door and say somethin' interesting like "Hey, isn't that Halle Berry?". When he steps in door to look out, you put a foot on his a$$ and give a firm push, then as you close and lock the door behind him you say, "You don't have to go home, but you have to get the hell up on outta here!"

In Sister Hillary's case the superdelegates can pull this off by gettin' her to the door by sayin', "Hey, isn't that a plausible path to the democratic nomination?" before closin' the door and deliverin' the message. Just a thought.
