Woman? I can't think of a single person right now more qualified than her and I am not a Clinton fan by a long shot.


Biden has a list of qualifications a mile long, but he's probably too old now.

As an aside, I've joked with my friends that the Democrats run Biden/Obama in 2016. If Biden lives thru his whole term, cool, run again in 2020. If not, Obama is president again and we can REALLY troll the Tea Party.

I don't know if the law actually works like that though, so there's that.

metatronarchetype: The left tried to sell us on the lie that anyone who didn't vote for Obama chose not to do so because he's black, in spite of all the other legitimate reasons to be opposed to his rule.  I suppose during the next election cycle, voting against her based on the fact that she's done nothing but ride her husband's coat-tails for her entire career will be painted as voting against her because she has a cooter instead of a peener.

Well, I know this sounds far-fetched, what with the popular opinion being that their collective IQ is in the single digits, but they could have been comparison shopping.  I often do stuff like that, when given free reign by the distaffbopper to choose, comparing square footage, number of plies, etc.

Interesting.  Basically, that means that you can say whatever idiot thing you want, and if I disagree, you can reply with "If you don't know, then it's not worth my time to explain it."

No, fool, you're supposed to pay attention.  During both presidential election cycles that Obama participated in as a candidate for POTUS, this claim that not voting for him was racist was made over and over again.  If you don't already know this, you weren't paying attention or were locked in a basement.  Asking me for citations for a commonly known fact is like asking me for a citation for saying "The sky is blue."  Doing so is arguing in bad faith, and it is a waste of my time to prove to you something that is common knowledge.

Let me put it in another way:  Do you honestly think it won't be claimed that Hillary lost votes due to the fact that she is a female? Do you think valid criticisms of her won't be brushed off as misogyny by the left's chattering class and various and sundry feminist torchbearers?


Okay, so the citation you are giving is "because I said so" or "its common sense".

The idea that Hillary lost to Obama because she's female is silly, just as the idea that Martha Coakley lost to Scott Brown because she's female is silly.  I haven't seen that a female Democrat was criticized because she's a woman nearly as often as I've heard conservatives like Rush Limbaugh, Ann Coulter, and Sean Hannity say "Why are liberals afraid of a strong, conservative woman?"

But, if Hillary becomes POTUS, count the number of times that a Fox News commentator begins a story about her with "Well, it must be that time of the month again".

Seriously though, if it's "common sense" then there's guaranteed to be an article you can link to where that's happening.  Otherwise, it's "I keep hearing that that's how those people think".

she must have something like the "Bat Phone" laying around & when the GOP needs some derp spewed, they light her up, she paints on some makeup & hops in a barrel & floats down the river where some Fox News gopher fishes her out, tells her her thoughts & puts her in front of a camera.

mcnguyen: Is this the same Sarah Palin who gushed over and effusively praised Hillary in her very first speech?  after after McCain nominated her as his VP?  That Sarah Palin?  I refuse to believe her constant praising and name-dropping of Hillary was a result of some sort of mad belief on the part of republicans that women-folk were so dumb that they'd vote for any woman, regardless of political beliefs.


Here are a couple of Palin's references to Hillary Clinton:

"I can't begin this great effort without honoring the achievements of Geraldine Ferraro, back in 1984, and, of course, Senator Hillary Clinton who did show determination and grace in her presidential campaign,'' Ms. Palin said.

[Hillary Clinton] does herself a disservice to even mention it, really. ... When I hear a statement like that coming from a woman candidate with any kind of perceived whine about that excess criticism, or maybe a sharper microscope put on her, I think, 'Man, that doesn't do us any good, women in politics, or women in general, trying to progress this country.'


Bolded to show that Sarah Palin has not been self-aware for some time.

doctor wu: She said "anyone who would just throw away 200 years of military ethos and leave our men behind to be murdered" should "never be considered as a commander in chief."

She doesn't possess the intelligence to understand what a cowardly, sickening statement this is, but Fox News does, and they still air it.


Didn't click on TFA, but I think it was CNN, no? But either way, it points out the fatal flaw of 24-hour news networks; you need to report stupid things that will keep eyeballs on the TV until the next ad for Depends or Miracle Catheters. There are actual important events going on in the world right now, but - and all joking aside here - I reasonably expect to learn more about them by spending 15 minutes on fark, than I would vegetating for an hour in front of any TV news broadcast.

If TiVo could put an "ignore" button that actually made stupid people not appear on my TV, it would be worth a kidney.

SkinnyHead: Heliovdrake: Oh Wow. ok Skinnyhead.

What is the TRUTH about Benghazi that is being concealed and obfuscated.

Tell us we must know!

I mean if its so Epic, we could have that blah man out of office tomorrow and in jail!

I don't have access to the truth.  I'm just a citizen who depends on the government to tell me the truth.  The government hasn't done that.  They lied when they said that the attack in Benghazi was a spontaneous demonstration protesting a video.  And when Hillary gets caught lying about that, she pounds on the table screaming what difference does it make.  It should make a difference.  If for no other reason, the truth makes a difference in deciding whether Hillary would make an honest president or not.


The issues you mentioned were brought to light within what a month? If you take the scandals of John Edwards and General Petraeus, the minerals and management office, or the SEC oversight problems that led to Maddoff, I think we can say that not much stays secret when things get high profile scrutiny. Conspiracies can exist in the dark, but not in the light. Humans sort of suck at keeping secrets, and the more people involved the less likely it can stay secret. I'm sure you've heard the old saying "The only way 2 men can keep a secret is if one of them is dead." Either you believe that Rep. Issa has the capacity to find the coverup if it exists, and history shows us that he would have found more by now if it were there to be found, or you believe that government oversight fundamentally doesn't work. If it's the former, further investigation won't yield anything meaningful; if it's the later, why do you care, you don't believe that anything can be fixed without a revolution anyway.

No, fool, you're supposed to pay attention.  During both presidential election cycles that Obama participated in as a candidate for POTUS, this claim that not voting for him was racist was made over and over again.


Actually, a lot of the claims of why you shouldn't vote for Obama (aside from "He's Socialist, Kenyan ursurper") was that he was Unqualified for the job1. The claims of "you call us racist because we don't like the blah guy" only came from conservatives desperately grasping for a reason to justify their persecution complex.

 If you don't already know this, you weren't paying attention or were locked in a basement.

"If you don't agree with me, you're obviously a hermit, or incurably stupid, or both. Study it out!"

 Asking me for citations for a commonly known fact is like asking me for a citation for saying "The sky is blue."  Doing so is arguing in bad faith, and it is a waste of my time to prove to you something that is common knowledge.

"Not only have you demonstrated how mind-numbingly stupid you are, but you have the temerity to demand I back up my claims with facts? No wonder you people can't find your way out of a paper bag. Frankly, I don't know why I even try to straighten you Neanderthals out!"

Let me put it in another way:  Do you honestly think it won't be claimed that Hillary lost votes due to the fact that she is a female? Do you think valid criticisms of her won't be brushed off as misogyny by the left's chattering class and various and sundry feminist torchbearers?

"Why won't you see that our valid complaints about this candidate are dismissed as the fevered rantings of a party that spent 8 years creating scandals, rumors, innuendo, straight-up falsehoods and thousands of hours of government lawyers sent to Arkansas to dig up dirt on this woman and her husband? That was the *past* pal - any criticisms we have today are completely above board and untainted by the bullshiat of the 90's! How dare you insult our character?"

justtray: Ed Grubermann: FTFA: "If (Benghazi) doesn't have an impact on the 2016 presidential election, if she is a candidate, then America, I am very disappointed in our electorate," Palin said Sunday on Fox News, where she's a contributor.

As the Republicans show their true reasons for Benghazigate. Like we didn't already know they were going o do this. Christ on a cracker, hey must be terrified of Hillary.

What they're afraid of is losing, again. Because they might never win again with their current platform.

So their goal is to objectify and shout down anyone who is a legitimate, well-known candidate that they would have no chance of beating no matter who they run.

They won't be able to keep their Supreme Court Justices alive forever. As they get into their 90s, their health will deteriorate to the point where the public pressure to step down will be unstoppable. Then the Liberals will control the Supreme Court and be able to control gun regulation and healthcare, two things social conservatives are deathly afraid of.


Then why don't they run some candidates that are not either insane, brain dead, or religious lunatics? You know, candidates that people might actually want to vote for?  Oh, yeah. They let the insane, brain dead, religious lunatics take over the party.

Asked how she plans to combat any conflicts she may face related to her political legacy, she said the best course is to "find common ground."
"I have a lot of reason to believe, as we saw in the 2012 election, most Americans don't agree with the extremists on any side of an issue," Clinton said in the interview. "But there needs to continue to be an effort to find common ground, or even take it to higher ground on behalf of the future."



I don't really care if Hillary runs or not, and depending on who the GOP finds to run, I can't say who I'll vote for, but compare that to ANYTHING Palin has EVER said, and it's obvious which person would make a better leader for this country.

Totally agree. She is so qualified for the gig she's almost over qualified but that probably won't stop RW pundits from trying to make that argument against her.

Hell, I was hearing the "qualified" argument against Obama during the last election from people who thought Romney's time at Bain gave him more "Executive experience" and thus he was more qualified for the office than the guy who'd been doing it for close to 4 years by that point. Intellectual honesty is not the right's strong suit.

Again, I don't think she's gonna run but if she does she's the clear front runner coming out the gate.

That all noted, watching Scary Failin' cry impotent tears of rage that the fake scandal that FOX and their RW radio friends tried to create over Benghazi in order to bring Hillary's profile down has collapsed on itself like a bad souffle *was* kinda lulzy.

This is why conservatives have been getting crushed lately.  Because they act like they're master profilers and they're shocked when they learn how wrong they are.

Sort of.  The "learning" part and the "admitting that they're wrong" part continues to escape them.

But please, keep telling me how I think.  You thinking that you're smarter than "people like me" will keep you warm and safe, and will blunt the trauma that will occur when Democrats wreck the GOP in 2014 and 2016.

Well there you have it.  Republicans want the truth to come out about Benghazi because they think the truth will harm Hillary's presidential aspirations.  Democrats, on the other hand, want to conceal and obfuscate the truth about Benghazi because they think the truth will harm Hillary's presidential aspirations.  I think most voters will prefer to hear the truth.

This.
