Hillary Rodham Clinton (HRC) is having a one hour town hall meeting on the Hallmark Channel this evening, the eve of Super Tuesday, with an extra half hour for internet interaction. It begins at 9:00pm EST.

The hostess? Former ABC News pseudo-journalist and current Clinton endorser Carole Simpson.

The only thing that might be more lovey-dovey (and nauseating) than this arrangement is its description by New York Democrat Representative Anthony D. Weiner.

(Diabetics beware.)

Weiner, another HRC backer, says Hallmark was chosen to “point out that the hallmark of the Clinton campaign is to focus on the substance and the challenges that we have in the four years ahead. To point out that the hallmark of this campaign is using technology to reach voters is to bring them into the process as much as possible, and to point out that the hallmark of this campaign is to make decisions based on who will be ready to govern on Day One.”

Blake Zeff, a HRC campaign spokesman, added, “When you care enough to send the very best: Hallmark.”

No word on if insulin will be provided to those in attendence.

The Hallmark Channel is aptly described by the New York Times as "the cable television network that is best known for sentimental tearjerkers, didactic after-school specials and adaptations of well-loved serial juvenile fiction".

Barack Obama must be egregiously upset that the Oprah Channel is not yet up and running.
