Raging joke

This week in Ohio Mrs Clinton appeared scarcely unable to contain her rage, railing against debate moderators for once more giving her the front-runner’s tougher challenge of answering first.

“Maybe we should ask Barack if he’s comfortable and needs another pillow?” she said, in what aides later insisted was an attempted joke.

“They (Mr Obama’s campaign) just think that all of a sudden out of the blue with no qualifications whatsoever they can try to take away what other people have worked for very, VERY hard their entire lives.”
