I've made fun of the Clinton campaign before for flooding reporters' inboxes with press releases, but the one sent out Sunday night is one of the most hilarious I've come across yet, right up there with the one about Barack Obama's kindergarten-era presidential ambitions. Yesterday's went after Obama for saying John McCain would be a better president than George Bush:

Sen. Obama said today that John McCain would be better for the country than George Bush. Now, Sen. McCain is a real American patriot who has served our country with distinction, but Sen. McCain would follow the same failed policies that have been so wrong for our country the last seven years [...] We need a nominee who will take on John McCain, not cheer on John McCain, and I will be that nominee.

Really now. Obama also mentioned that "either Democrat would be better than John McCain," and, well, does anyone really dispute that McCain isn't at least a little bit better than George Bush? No one's arguing McCain's going to walk on water or anything. Yes, McCain would probably be very similar to Bush, but at least he maintains a smidgen of sanity occasionally. Besides, wasn't it just a few weeks ago that Bill Clinton was talking about what a love fest a Clinton-McCain race would be?
