At least their editorial page did. While many in the media spin her “enormous” victory in PA, most strangely fail to mention that Obama (according to many polls) actually moved up ten points in the state, despite Team Hillary’s GOP fear-mongering tactics. From NY Times
The Pennsylvania campaign, which produced yet another inconclusive result on Tuesday, was even meaner, more vacuous, more desperate, and more filled with pandering than the mean, vacuous, desperate, pander-filled contests that preceded it.
Voters are getting tired of it; it is demeaning the political process; and it does not work. It is past time for Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton to acknowledge that the negativity, for which she is mostly responsible, does nothing but harm to her, her opponent, her party and the 2008 election.
If nothing else, self interest should push her in that direction. Mrs. Clinton did not get the big win in Pennsylvania that she needed to challenge the calculus of the Democratic race. It is true that Senator Barack Obama outspent her 2-to-1. But Mrs. Clinton and her advisers should mainly blame themselves, because, as the political operatives say, they went heavily negative and ended up squandering a good part of what was once a 20-point lead.
On the eve of this crucial primary, Mrs. Clinton became the first Democratic candidate to wave the bloody shirt of 9/11. A Clinton television ad — torn right from Karl Rove’s playbook — evoked the 1929 stock market crash, Pearl Harbor, the Cuban missile crisis, the cold war and the 9/11 attacks, complete with video of Osama bin Laden. ‚”If you can’t stand the heat, get out of the kitchen,” the narrator intoned.
Still, a lot of Pennsylvanians voted for this tool. Perhaps people need a reminder that Hillary’s taken more money from lobbyists than McCain and Obama combined. And lest they forget, Hillary supported the invasion of Iraq. Thousands of Americans have died and close to 100,000 civilians have been killed. Now, she’s trying to outhawk McCain by saying she’d push to “totally obliterate” Iran. A person of sound judgment would be discussing diplomacy. My head hurts now, make her go away.
Do you really want a candidate who invokes Republican scare tactics?

Devo on Letterman, 1992:
Using appropriated footage from a single episode of “Charlie Rose,” filmmaker Andrew Filippone Jr. creates something both disturbing and farcical in “‘Charlie Rose’ by Samuel Beckett.”:
Pastor Roger Byrd of Jonesville Church of God put the sign up which reads “Obama Osama humm are they brothers?” Pastor Byrd says the sign is not meant to be racial or political but rather to make people think. “His name is so close to Osama I have a feeling he might be Islamic therefore he doesn’t recognize Christ,” Pastor Byrd said. Jonesville Church of God does not have any African American members.
