(Some Guy)   Hillary Clinton plays the Alfred E. Neuman card on Bush for his "What, me worry?" leadership style. Sadly, only farkers over 30 will get the reference   (news.findlaw.com ) divider line

she was too kind
 
2005-07-11 07:12:02 PM  
A Republican National Committee official said the former first lady was "part of today's angry and adrift Democrat Party," while a spokesman for one of her potential 2006 Senate rivals said she was guilty of "insulting the president."

Where in the fark did the writer get these statements? The Republican Preschool for Whiny Politicans?

Hillary's going to kick ass in '08. Diebold will be on her side.

This may be the first documented evidence Hillary has a sense of humor. But more likely she just fired her old speechwriter.
 
2005-07-11 07:13:42 PM  
and then the article goes on to quote only Republican reactions...
 
2005-07-11 07:13:46 PM  
This is a lot better than (I am not making this up) when I saw her a few months ago on CSPAN and she said that "We don't need a congress that acts like the extras from the film 'I Robot'"

Swear to God.

The ONLY reason to vote for Hillary in 08 is to piss off Republicans.
 
2005-07-11 07:15:23 PM  
It's not funny, it's sadly too accurate.

The indignant 'outrage' of the Republicans was funnier. They say worse things about me every day for not being a loyal bootlicker.
 
2005-07-11 07:15:37 PM  
Awesome. At first, I wasn't going to vote for Former President Clinton. Now, after her deliciously creative little jab, I think I might.

What, is our president a seven year old? He can't handle being "insulted"??

Waaaaaah!

A Republican National Committee official said the former first lady was "part of today's angry and adrift Democrat Party,"

Angry? Why would we be angry? We have a president that believes in imaginary WMD and an overly optimistic plan to rebuild an entire war-torn nation (which could take up to 12 years, according to Rumsfeld), while a terrorist organization (that our leader isn't bothering to look for any more) is affecting moral across the globe with attacks on the US, India, Iraq, Spain, and most recently in London.

And that's just the president. Our legislative branch is paranoid of homosexuals getting (legally) married, braindead vegetables being youthanized, and non-existant flag burning in the US (psst...it happens in other countries, not here), while it biatches and whines about a few extremist judges not getting passed into the ranks (even though the 100 or so where already let through) and thinks driving our economy and budget into the toilet (for future generations to blame the Democrats on) is a great idea.

Angry? Why the fark would Democrats be farking angry?!?

"The President is merely the most important among a large number of public servants. He should be supported or opposed exactly to the degree which is warranted by his good conduct or bad conduct, his efficiency or inefficiency in rendering loyal, able, and disinterested service to the Nation as a whole. Therefore it is absolutely necessary that there should be full liberty to tell the truth about his acts, and this means that it is exactly necessary to blame him when he does wrong as to praise him when he does right. Any other attitude in an American citizen is both base and servile. To announce that there must be no criticism of the President, or that we are to stand by the President, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public. Nothing but the truth should be spoken about him or any one else. But it is even more important to tell the truth, pleasant or unpleasant, about him than about any one else."

Hillary's behind the times; this joke's been played out for years. Next she'll be cracking jokes about Will Smith's rap career.

Heh, that comic still kicks ass. I got PO'd at MAD when they started publishing cartoons from Ted Rall, though. They can do so much better.

That was best thing about Mad, they could attack anyone cause they didn't need to worry about offending sponsors. Ads suck.

...Well, she was right, wasn't she?

Actually, I think she was VERY wrong. A malevolent evil as thick as that which occupies the entirety of the Executive Branch cannot possibly be stupid.

Great image crafting. How best to disguise evil than as a not-too-bright-but-amiable Texas cowboy? If he does something that furthers his own ends and those of his cohorts, but serves to the detriment of our nation, his apologists will explain it away as "Well, he had good intentions" or "He's just trying to do the right thing". It worked for his brother, too. John Ellis Bush, hand-crafted to be a good 'ol boy, with the name "Jeb".

Farking brilliant.

Don't you mean "euthenized" (i.e. put to sleep permanently)? I don't know what "youthanized"(sic) is, but since I am 42 (and I got the reference) I might like to partake :-p

Cheers

When President Clinton was in office, you could really see the worry on his face. Every time he bit that lower lip and squinted, you knew he was concerned about the country.

A man that tense needs a lot of french fries and bjs.

That's kinda the problem the Democrats had in the last election. Merely depicting yourself as not being the other guy without positing any original ideas isn't much of a winning strategy. Sure, you can blame your opponent for causing problems, but what would you do to fix them?

I'm a liberal-leaning Farker and I hope Hillary doesn't get the nomination in '08. She's too polarizing a figure, and the Democrats don't win at the "polarizing their base" game. The Republicans do. The GOP media won't even have to do much work to get their side to hate her; they already do. This is why Republicans more than anybody are enthusiastic about a potential presidential bid for Hillary. They're already pretty sure they can beat her.

The Democrats need to put up someone who can actually win votes from moderates who voted for Bush the last two times. There is no other way they can win. It is painfully obvious that they cannot appeal to their base alone.

OTOH, I am saddened that there is no genuinely liberal party in America anymore. The Democratic Party's continual movement to the right has made me more and more uncomfortable. Maybe next time I'll vote Green.

ick. Hillary Clinton for president? *shudder*

Hilary should win, because she is a woman.

It can't be bad to shed the "white rich male dominated politics" image, if only temporarily, can it?

Maybe it will buy some time with the black people, too.

"Hillary Clinton's opportunistic attempt to market herself as a centrist is like a wolf dressing up in sheep's clothing," said RNC spokeswoman Tracey Schmitt. "Such thinly veiled rhetoric doesn't change the fact she is part of today's angry and adrift Democrat Party."

"At a time when President Bush and most elected officials are focused on the security of our nation, Mrs. Clinton seems focused on taking partisan jabs and promoting her presidential campaign," added New York's Republican chairman, Stephen Minarik. "Her priorities are clearly out of whack."

Thomas Basile, a spokesman for potential Senate challenger Edward Cox, a son-in-law of the late President Richard Nixon, said while Clinton was "busy insulting the president across the country, she is failing to produce the homeland security and transportation funding" the state needs.
