Battle of the southern sayings…
“At an evening rally in Lexington, Clinton’s husband portrayed her as the underdog who keeps coming back from the brink of defeat. “They’ve declared her dead more times than a cat’s got lives,” the former president told a raucous crowd of about 2,500 supporters.”
He’s from the South: Arkansas, and they’ve got their hillbilly sayings there, like the nine lives cats thing. Around here, in the deep south, we have our sayings too.
So when we read the following…”Clinton trails Obama in the delegate count by such a margin that it is mathematically unlikely for her to overtake him in the remaining primaries,” … down he-ah we say, “that dog don’t hunt.”
that dog don’t hunt: An obviously faulty endeavor; also as ~ /won’t hunt/, predictive of failure.
In the face of the Obama Mass, a gathering of over 75,000 swooning Oregonians listening to Obama speak at his latest rally, and in the face of Clinton’s paltry rally of 2,500, we would have to say that for the Democrats at least, “it’s a one dog town.”
