My Most Inevitable Post Ever -- Part 3



Hillary Clinton/Prop Joe

Both have survived as long as they have because they understand deeply and intuitively how the game works. Clinton was deflecting potshots from Gingrich and Maureen Dowd when her current challengers were playing handball in the schoolyard; Prop Joe took on Avon in Season 1, negotiated with Stringer through season 2, hooked up the Greek connect, formed the co-op, and managed challenges from Omar, all the while bringing Slim Charles and all the west-side peoples into the fold. Right now, he looks out-muscled by Marlo and his astonishingly well-organized team (Snoop and Chris Partlow), but are you really going to count him out as the storm Marlo's invited starts to gather?

dude, i literally just started watching (thanks for the dvds, bayrex!) so i'll have to wait a couple of weeks before i can understand these posts.

along those lines...please don't turn the only blog i read into a series of painful spoilers. i'm in the middle of season 4.

Adil,

Great idea.

I agree with H on the spoiler thing.

Also note that Omar is Obama's favorite character:

Unrelated, but your new favorite candidate just asserted -- in the S.C. debate -- that ending poverty among children has been central to her 35 years of public service.

I never knew that before. I guess she's just really modest and doesn't like to talk about it much.

i think anonymous needs a blog.

Hillary's my new favorite candidate? What the hell blog are you reading?

Also, guys, it's not a spoiler if it happened like three years ago. I mean, it's The Wire; shit goes down. You can't put a moratorium on my talking about fools getting capped back in the day.

Also, I've seen next week's episode (released early On Demand) and, let's just say, some of the questions I posed were addressed head-on.

look, we're living in two americas. and the one i live in has netflix, not HBO.

E said...

i think there are three americas at play here: 1) HBO, 2) netflix and 3) non-american borrowing dvds from her friend who's from a US territory without any electoral college votes.

Heidi said...

btw, doesn't hillary's accusation about obama associating with a "slum landlord" sound eerily familiar to one mayor royce?

LOLbama said...

Ahem - this US territory is being courted like a mofo (i.e., with wax flowers) for those precious superdelegates. The 'College is so 2000. KThx.
