Think of all the chicks the Big Dog can nail when she's in overseas
conferences.

Remember, it's marathon, not a sprint. My money's on Barry HUSSEIN
Obama. Which is cool with me cos he'll represent a "first". We've
never had a President Barry. Nothing but Jameses, Johns and
Franklins...

Given the last seven or so years, I'd suggest Berni. Berni is an 11
year old female mutt--part dachshund and part some kind of terrier--
who basically likes to be overfed and overpetted, thus shows more
wisdom than is apparent in the entire Republican Party and a large
segment of the Democratic Party.

One thing has baffled me about Clinton's critics: most are
conservatives (small and capital C) who staunchly defend family values
(with the occasional exception such Giuliani, Gingrich, Craig and a
few thousand others), standing by one's man and so forth, yet for
years, they've criticized her as a bitch for not divorcing her husband
when he drops trou in the wrong places.

Tammy Wynette where are you now that we need you?

I get the impression that as a group they are scared s__tless of her
and what, as a woman, she represents.

As a result are running around like Chicken Little announcing the sky

Well... I see it has started. Political season is coming! Cartoons,
clever retorts, sound bites, witty reparte, and every one thinks they
are right.

What sufferer of self induced profound retardation ACTUALLY thinks any
of those nitwits running for office give one crap about them?

How have our politicians (speaking of our American politicians only, I
know it isn't polite or politically correct to criticize other
countries....) done such a good selling job that any sane individual
anywhere in this country actually thinks one of those self serving,
petty empire builders cares about them?

The differences in the candidates are fun to enjoy when you see them
ripping each other to shreds as it is like a good catfight (but no
loss of clothes - lucky us!) but in reality there just isn't much
difference anymore.

Just make sure boys, that when the hate threads start and you start
**** blasting each other over political differences that you mark them
"OT".
Thanks for that one, JT.

What, exactly, as a woman do you think she represents?

Rugged individualism and rising to status on her own? The only reason we
even know who she is comes as a result of her association with her husband.

Great achievements? What exactly has she done? Rose Law firm? First
Lady? Moving to one of the most liberal states in the US in order to get
elected Senator? -- a donkey could have been elected as long as it had a
(D) by its name.

Well, we certainly know that describing her as a Stalinist is not exactly
hyperbole. "I'm going to take those oil company profits and use them
for ..." If she wants those, what make you think that someday your
profits shouldn't be used to help those she thinks needs help.

/I'm done. This is way too early for presidential election politics anyway.

What a condescending thought. So just because she's a woman you think
conservatives are afraid of her?

That is the equivalent of saying that libs are scared of Ann Coulter just
because she is a woman who is doing well in what was formerly a man's world
of political discourse.

Or for that matter that all libs would be for Kay Bailey Hutchison because
she is a woman breaking through the glass ceiling of American politics.

i.e, conservatives aren't concerned about Hillary because she is a woman,
they are concerned about Hillary because she has shown herself to be
strongly socialist with stalinist tendencies

Certainly doesn't make her presidential.

DON'T do that, I don't want that kind of stuff showing up in the archives.
I did not write the above. Listening to her speeches, particularly to the
kook fringe base, she leans very heavily socialist. Period.

People who think that conservatives are down on the idea of a female

have voted for if she had been eligible to and chosen to run for the
office of President. The singular lack of success of female
candidates in the past has been because they came across as "woman
candidates" and not "candidates who happen to be women".

Now, that said, I'm probably going to end up voting for Hillary if she
gets the nomination (and that will be the first time going back to
Nixon that I vote for a Democratic candidate for President), unless
the Republicans pull a rabbit out of their hat. The reason is
simple--I've always thought that the wrong Clinton got elected and I
am curious as to what she would actually do. She comes across as
tough, conniving, determined, willing to do whatever's necessary to
achieve her objectives, and so likely to be very effective. And I
have every confidence that the Islamists will do something stupid that
will set her off.

Besides, it would be kind of fun to see Rush Limbaugh's head explode.

Thanks for that one, JT.

I think that when you've criticized one politician you've pretty
much critized them all, they're all basically the same, just the
language is different - and I do NOT consider that criticizing another
country - politicians are fair game, period.

You're welcome, I considered it the politically correct thing to
do.


Well, we can always try my recommendation: anyone who wins local
office must spend six months in jail before taking office, hard
labor; state leve, depending on importance (supposed) of the office,
one to three years; federal level, congressman(woman), four years;
senator, five years, president, ten years.

There's little doubt any and all of them deserve at least that, so get
it out of the way and watch 'em smoke (if you can find anyone to run,
though I think in most cases, the money is big enough...).

Scared of Annie Babe? Get real. She's nothing but a buck hungry
publicity hound with no power, and a penchant for the gross
statement--"I think it would be fun to A-bomb Iran." The only time a
bitch like that is scary is when she's near the kitchen knives, had a
couple and is behind you.

Oh, man! I'd pay to see that. A blast and a whiff of pent up hot air.

I tend to agree with you about Clinton: I have always said that Jimmy
Carter failed as President because he's a nice guy, thinks other
people are nice, and, basically, doesn't have enough soon-of-a-bitch
in him to do the job. I believe Mrs. Clinton qualifies, except for the
'son' part. And I think she'll do a good job. Of course, anything
short of a total collapse of the Republic is going to look good with
the mess goofball is leaving behind.

How much was gas when the busher came in?


What did he do to increase them that Clinton and Bush I and Reagan and
Carter and Ford and Nixon and Johnson and Kennedy didn't do?

Gotta be scary as the devil for them.


What a condescending thought. So just because she's a woman you think
conservatives are afraid of her?


That is the equivalent of saying that libs are scared of Ann Coulter
just
because she is a woman who is doing well in what was formerly a man's
world of political discourse.


Being a screech owl is hardly the same as being prez.


I agree. Hillary's screech and cackle would scare just about anybody.
Certainly doesn't make her presidential.



Or for that matter that all libs would be for Kay Bailey Hutchison
because
she is a woman breaking through the glass ceiling of American politics.


i.e, conservatives aren't concerned about Hillary because she is a
woman,
they are concerned about Hillary because she has shown herself to be
strongly corporatist, in bed with the same folks who brought you the
forthcoming economic meltdown..

(I fixed your post).


DON'T do that, I don't want that kind of stuff showing up in the archives.
I did not write the above. Listening to her speeches, particularly to the
kook fringe base, she leans very heavily socialist. Period.

Look, somehow that bitch has been given the taste of blood in her
fangs. Some schmuck has convinced her that she can be a big as Bill.
She's running with the hope she can show up her husband.
That is what gives her life. Other than that she's dead.

We'll run the risk of nuclear war every 28 days?

Oh yeah, our system is so screwed up that people who can, come to
use it
instead of relying upon *their* own country's socialized health care
system.

That is only if they can afford to spend the bucks (pun intended). From my
experience, the current system is completely fouled up, with mutiple
billings for the same thing both to the actual patient and his/her
insurance company.
