Why we need Hillary to save us from space invaders.

By
May 14, 2008

I watched Hillary’s victory speech after routing Obama in West Virginia. Billed by her supporters as one of the greatest political speeches of all time, if excellence in wishful thinking was the criterion I’d give her an A plus. I have to give her credit because of the three candidates she proved that if evil space monsters bent on the subjugation of earth ever invade us and need a foil to get the population to lay down their arms and becoming willing slaves, I’d say Hillary is their girl.

Talk about being able to weave a convincing speech out of threads of wishful thinking.

Let’s say earth is about to be invaded and have the entire population wiped out if our military forces try to fight back. We all will be spared if we succumb willingly and allow the aliens to take over peacefully and enslave us.

Who better to give the following speech?

My fellow Americans, today space ships appeared over Washington, D.C., New York City, Los Angeles, Chicago, London, Paris, Rome, Moscow, Sidney and at least a dozen other large cities around the world.

Within the hour the leader of the extra-terrestrial delegation was in contact with me by radio and we arranged the face to face meeting in the Oval Office which just concluded.

The leader, who was trustworthy and sincere, looked very much like you and I and spoke perfect English.

He explained and demonstrated the highly advanced technology of his planet, which is very similar to earth only at least two thousand years ahead of us in everything from medicine to energy.

Sad to say, their planet is dying and several million of their citizens must resettle here.

I urge all Americans and all the people of earth to welcome our new residents with open arms.

They are our friends.

They will assure that we live long healthy lives into our hundreds with virtually all debilitating diseases cured, that we will no longer rely on fossil fuel for energy, we will eliminate famine and poverty throughout the world.

Long live Jabba the Hutt, the new Emperor of the World and his Vice Planetary Potentate Hillary Clinton.

    This is what Hillary said:

    “President Bush’s comparison of any Democrat to Nazi
    appeasers is both offensive and outrageous. This is the kind
    of statement that has no place in any presidential address.”

    Sherry:

    I find it amazing that YOU refer to the Obama supporters as MYOPIC. Quite frankly, it appears that the people in West Virginia are the one’s that are MYOPIC! Did you take a look at the exit polls and the comments?

    I’ve never been to Vest Virginia and I have no intentions of ever going to a place where people are trapped in their own minds. I never want to be in the company of people who continue to vote against their own interests just because Rush Bimbag, Bumb Hannity, the Christian Zealots and Hillary, tells them to do so.

    Not only is West Virginia like that but Pennsylvania and other states, too many to mention, suffer from the same affliction.

    I pray that God will OPEN their eyes and yours as well to see that your mind set will destroy you in this ever so changing world.

    My best to the CLEAR THINKERS of this world, who are able to think further than the moment!

    Well she did technically speak out against it.

    Personally I like what Biden said:

    Biden: Bush’s comments were ‘bullshit’

    Those are the words of a man who is no longer a Presidential Candidate (very big grin)!

    McCain flip flops again!

    Today, I was half watching TV at the hospital while waiting for a blood transfusion. Of course, Faux news was on. I was half asleep when one of their puppets announced that McCain had stated he would end the Iraq war during his first term. Then the subject changed with no elaboration and the normal ten minutes of blah, blah, blah you would expect such a total change of policy direction would produce.

    I hope I heard the announcement correctly. They said it twice and I was wide awake the second time. If true, apparently his advisors have gotten through to him that he cannot win with the 100 year war policy. But this is just another example of McCain making his policy decisions according to the polls or other political posturing and positioning. His record establishes he has done it his whole political life.He is the Duncan politition, up and down like one of their yoyos.

    I can only imagine the field day the Democraps are going to have with this. I have no idea the context His statement came out of but it will make no difference. A flip-flop is a flip-flop.

    Regarding HRC, I have no understanding why anyone could support her. Those who do, only declare they want a proven liar in the White House. One who supports racism in order to appear to be the more electable candidate. Not supporting Hillary does not automatically mean supporting Obama or being forced to vote for McCain. They can stay home and make their statement by not voting. In other words, they want none of them.

    The hair on the back of my neck has been standing straight up for several weeks watching Hillary continue a campaign she knows is lost. I don’t trust this lady and wonder if she has something up her sleve none of us has picked up on. The Clintons have always been great behind the scene deal makers. Or have they lashed a horde of supper delegates to the mast with old skeleton threats? I find it hard to accept that The HillBilly Campaign would invest about 17 million of their own money in what they know is certain defeat. They’re just not that dumb or egotistical. Something is up.

    Sorry to use your collum for this, Hal,but to answer many inquiries I have received, I have been handed some very discourageing news lately. We finally got the doctors to agree to a time frame for me to live. It’s 6 to 18 months. We made them say it because I had deteriorated so much the past couple of months. Can’t walk over 15 feet now. Have had to increase painkillers again. You would not believe how long it has taken me to type this post. So, there it is, finally. I must say, though, that there is some solace in knowing. I set everything up for the family long ago, so, their is nothing to do or worry about there. just want to spend as much time with kids and grand kids as I can. That means traveling a lot.

    Anyway, there you have it. Don’t expect a lot of posting from me. It is too difficult.

    Seal you are TOTALLY CORRECT! McCain’s people polled the public and found that the 100 year thing wasn’t going over well AT ALL! They had to come up with a BETTER STRATEGY to countermand the 100 year statement.

    YOu know Karl’s advising McCain behind the scenes, right?

    Sorry to hear about your pain. Hope you hang in there long enough to see the GOP get kicked out of power.

    You guys are right. I do want to survive long enough to see the ridiculous religious fanatics blown out of our government. I know that will happen only if the Obama troops get control. Hillary would only develope them as her base of supporters. Too many people are blind to the fact that she is a republicrat. A republican in democrat disguise. A female lying version of George W.Bush

    One thing I have always liked about Obama is how he goes about making changes quietly, efficiently, and effectively. No great fan fare unless it is appropriate. Problem is, that quiet does not work well for his primary campaigning. Most of Hillary’s success lately is due to the hard charging attitude she has developed. I’ve watched some of her speeches lately and she really comes across as inspirational.

    Obama needs to explain what and how he will make some of the change he has been alluding to from the beginning. People need to hear that. Most importantly, he needs to tell everyone loud and clear that he suppots the separation of church and state. Once elected, he must sick the IRS on those churchs that are preaching politics. Resind their 501 c (3) status and hit them with paying back taxes plus some hefty fines.

    Hal, when the voice activated writing first came out I played with it for awhile and found that it would not work for me. That has nothing to do with the ability of the system. Just me and the way I compose and edit. I had to constantly rewrite everything. I wish it was different. I liked the idea.

    I hope Obama is what he appears to be. I am supporting him in every way that I can. Come November, it will be getting his supporters to the voting booths to vote. As one of our posters ends every one of his posts >

    Obama 08!

    I’ve lived in PA (pee-yay) for thirty years, and I cannot take offense to that comment, facts on the ground, if you will (mocking that dick, cheney’s favorite pause device), providing a refutation of slander or libel.

    A really good work of social commentary by Joe Bageant, “Deer Hunting With Jesus” is an engaging and hugely on target analysis of the same situation. It is done with humor and compassion yet blunt honesty. A good, I anticipate, companion read on my agenda, is “Whats the Matter With Kansas, How Conservatives Won the Heart of America” by Thomas Frank, partly because a friend loaned me a copy and I lost it before I even read it, so now I have to buy a copy to replace that one anyway. But your library may have either or both by now.

    I bought and read the Bageant book, and passed it on. Its circulating out there in the vast beyond I hope, with some new individual reading it at least every month, passing it from hand to hand. Maybe it’ll turn up at a flea market and I’ll repurchase it for fifty cents.

    I agree with John Edwards that all this Hillary hate is unproductive and it’s time to heal the Democratic Party.

    I too fear that Hillary could help al Qaeda convince moderate Muslims that the US is their mortal enemy. But if she somehow gets the Democratic nomination I will hope and pray she lets her husband handle foreign policy.

    This hysterical blog entry by Hal Brown I hope is as far as anti-Hillary hysterics will go.

    You can forget that my friend. The Obama camp is apparently too myopic to realize they need former Hillary supporters in order to win.
    We have been bitch slapped for the last six months, called racists, ignorant and too many other adjectives to list.
    Too late to make nice-nice now. The Obama supporters have behaved like thugs. We are done with the DNC.
    As for me, I regret to say after having read CHB for years,
    yesterday’s rant just did it for me.

    “The Obama supporters have behaved like thugs.”

    Sorry Sherry, I can’t agree with this statement.

    I like Hillary but when she started her campaign, she was the one behaving like a Mafia boss.

    She and Terry Mac were going around telling their donors that they better not give money to other candidates. What was with that?

    And she was high above the negative political fray UNTIL she started losing. Then it all changed.

    Hillary lost because she ran a poor campaign. Maybe it was because she ASSUMED that she would win. After all, we had been hearing the talking media heads say it was a forgone conclusion for over a year.

    Her ads in Texas were atrocious until the last week. And the only reason she won the popular vote is because the Bushies crossed over to vote for her courtesy of people like Rush Limbaugh. I suspect this happened in a lot of states that Hillary won.

    It wasn’t the Obama supporters that behaved badly at the caucuses in Texas, it was the Clinton supporters. And only Hillary would want to change the rules in the middle of the game.

    The Clintons are polarizing figures. People either love them or hate them. There is not a lot in between.

    Perhaps it is because the Clintons like a lot of their supporters are seen as selfish, manipulative and liars.

    This is not what I personally feel about them. But an awful lot of people feel this way as evidenced by posts at this site.

    However, it does not help Senator’s Clinton’s future when she and her supporters play right into it.

    If you don’t care enough about this country to support someone other than another Bush, aka John McCain, then you are no better than the steal and spend Republicans and are part of the problem in this country.

    Excuse me for sounding thuggy,
    but hillary sent us to war. She is therefore not fit to be commander in chief. I personally resent the road of violence she has sent us down. She has also lied to the public, quite blatantly. It puzzles me why people support her, actually. Her decision to help bush violate the Geneva Convention is something many of us can’t so easily forget.

    Some polls are indicating that 30% of Hillary Clinton supporters say they will vote for John McCain if Barak Obama is the Democratic candidate. About one in three. It is difficult to figure out "who" these people are.

    Unless something is done to get back these voters, we could see President McCain. Here’s what the Republican Party is saying.

  21. pollchecker

    May 15, 2008 at 10:59 am

    “It is difficult to figure out “who” these people are. ”

    No it’s really not. These are people who call themselves Independent and voted for GW in 2000 and 2004.

    They are voting for Hillary because several Genuis of Propaganda talking heads told them to or because they just can’t vote for a person of color….PERIOD!

    They would NEVER vote Democratic no matter who was the nominee.

    However, many of these people just won’t vote no matter what they say now. Many of these people will vote for someone like Barr or Nader. Many of these people will change their tune once the truth about McCain hits the Main Stream Media.

    You know who is making a big deal about it? Main Stream Media! No wonder. They need something to talk about right now. They are getting boring saying the same thing over and over and people are tuning out.

    So they have to stir the pot and create news. What I want to know is why they aren’t jumping on GW’s back for calling Obama supporters — Nazi sympathizers.

    If ANYONE OTHER THAN BUSH said that it would be headline news and discussed for days upon days upon days.

    May 15, 2008 at 11:26 am

    Challenging Hillary

    Science fiction aside, this is a real test of Hillary’s willingness to stand with Obama for what is right.

    At least on MSNBC the Nazi comment is getting lots of highly critical commentary. I am waiting for someone to write a column suggesting Bush has taken reallife politics into the blogshere and become an example of Godwin’s Law.

    If this column wasn’t new I start one on this subject. Here’s some reporting from the Israeli press on Obama’s reaction and White House damage control.

    The MSM is just playing a portion of what Bush said (italics) but here’s a larger piece:

    This struggle is waged with the technology of the 21st century, but at its core it is the ancient battle between good and evil. The killers claim the mantle of Islam, but they are not religious men. No one who prays to the God of Abraham could strap a suicide vest to an innocent child, or blow up guiltless guests at a Passover Seder, or fly planes into office buildings filled with unsuspecting workers. In truth, the men who carry out these savage acts serve no higher goal than their own desire for power. They accept no God before themselves. And they reserve a special hatred for the most ardent defenders of liberty, including Americans and Israelis.

    That is why the founding charter of Hamas calls for
    the "elimination" of Israel. That is why the followers of Hezbollah chant "Death to Israel, Death to America!" That is why Osama bin Laden teaches that "the killing of Jews and Americans is one of the biggest duties." And that is why the president of Iran dreams of returning the Middle East to the Middle Ages and calls for Israel to be wiped off the map.

    There are good and decent people who cannot fathom the darkness in these men and try to explain their words away. This is natural. But it is deadly wrong. As witnesses to evil in the past, we carry a solemn responsibility to take these words seriously. Jews and Americans have seen the consequences of disregarding the words of leaders who espouse hatred. And that is a mistake the world must not repeat in the 21st century.

    Some seem to believe we should negotiate with
    terrorists and radicals, as if some ingenious argument will persuade them they have been wrong all along. We have heard this foolish delusion before. As Nazi tanks crossed into Poland in 1939, an American senator declared: "Lord, if only I could have talked to Hitler, all of this might have been avoided." We have an obligation to call this what it is – the false comfort of appeasement, which has been repeatedly discredited by history.

    Some people suggest that if the United States would
    just break ties with Israel, all our problems in the Middle East would go away. This is a tired argument that buys into the propaganda of our enemies, and America rejects it utterly. Israel’s population may be just over 7 million. But when you confront terror and evil, you are 307 million strong, because America stands with you.

    America stands with you in breaking up terrorist
    networks and denying the extremists sanctuary. And America stands with you in firmly opposing Iran’s nuclear weapons ambitions. Permitting the world’s leading sponsor of terror to possess the world’s deadliest weapon would be an unforgivable betrayal of future generations. For the sake of peace, the world must not allow Iran to have a nuclear weapon.

    Entire speech here.

    When did Obama say anything about breaking ties with Israel? And how about Bush suggesting Obama is delusional? When did Obama say anything about permitting Iran to have a nuclear weapon?

    Now let’s see if Hilary Clinton condemns what Bush said as strongly as Obama does since he’s certainly taking aim at him and not her. The purely political accusation that Obama is as bad as those who argued for appeasement with Hitler is both horrible and false. It is worse than the Swift boat attacks against Kerry.

    May 15, 2008 at 11:55 am

    Maybe. He looked so damn earnest when he gave that speech. Scary. And we’re supposed to buy the almost instant White House spin:

    "It is not," press secretary Dana Perino told reporters in Israel. "I would think that all of you who cover these issues and have for a long time have known that there are many who have suggested these types of negotiations with people that the president, President Bush, thinks that we should not talk to. I understand when you’re running for office you sometimes think the world revolves around you. That is not always true. And it is not true in this case."

    Yeah, covering for Bush must be a truly fun job. Does anybody in their right mind believe Bush wasn’t talking about Obama? (And how about that line about thinking the world revolves around you?)

    Still waiting for Hillary to condemn him…. I honestly will give her credit if she does although I won’t promise not to write any more Sillary Hillary (Silly Hilly?) columns like this one if she continues with the burlesque her campaign has become.

    May 15, 2008 at 12:41 pm

    If Senator Clinton fails to condemn GW’s remarks, she’s setting herself up for guaranteed failure. It will be just one more mistake she has made in her campaign.

    Hillary has to go out on her own terms, her own way and leave herself a way to run again. If we just be patient, she will go away graciously of that I have no doubt.

    I think it would serve our country well if both the Clintons and the Bushes just sat this election out. Otherwise it’s kinda like picking at a sore….it never heals.

    Nice discussion! I just want to add that fundamentalist religious self-worship and obsessive / compulsive disorder are quite often interchangeable, i.e the same people suffer from both diseases. I’m pretty certain that GW’s arrogance and pride stem as much from his addictive, narcissistic personality as from his twisted messianic religious beliefs.

    Hillary is another case-study in above personality disorders.

    GW was an addictive, narcissistic personality WAY BEFORE he EVER found Religion! Religion is just a convenient excuse for him being Right because he can’t argue his point any other way.
