To Tell You the Truth, Sometimes I Lie
It's the first day of the last year Bush will be in office (save for a few final days in Jan '09 when the bum starts stealing the White House silverware).
I figured it was high time I made known my choice for President.
I'm voting for Hillary.
We all know any candidate at this level of politics has to lie, cheat and manipulate to get elected by the general public.
Let's not fool ourselves into thinking that Obama's dreamy gentility or Edwards' pugnaciousness are innate qualities. They are delivering what their handlers tell them the people want.
We also know the slate of Republican candidates is a confederacy of dunces, crooks and scumbags.
Yes, I do think Hillary has lied her way to the top of the pile of Democratic hopefuls. She's pretended to be more hawkish than she is to assuage the war mongering electorate's fears. She's a chick; she has to appear tougher than any of the men in the race.
She's had to distance herself from gay issues because we all suspect she might be a little on the gay side herself (wink). We get it.
Yes, I think Hillary's penchant for faking regional accents, guffawing over seemingly nothing and her unfortunate dialectical attempt at reading an old negro
poem were cringe-worthy.
Yes, I agree that she's more slippery than greased owl shit. So? So am I.
But after eight years of criminal activity perpetrated by the Bush administration, we need a bitch in office. And I think Hillary's the right bitch for the job.
When she was first lady, we saw her scratch and claw her way beyond cookie baking and into relevance. She pioneered the concept of universal health care and was laughed at because of it. But she tried and didn't care what her enemies thought. And she lit the fuse.
As first lady, she was an open feminist. She was behind the things I was behind and she didn't try to hide it.
People hated her for it and she didn't care.
Now she has to care to get elected, so she's had to take on a patina of phoniness, just like they all have to do. So?
I was no Richard Nixon fan, except for one thing. He was a mean-spirited bastard and the whole world knew it. His foreign policy was, "Just TRY fucking with America."
And being the unpredictable, crazy, paranoid bastard he was, nobody fucked with us.
Hillary's a bitch and we all know it. But that crazy mama lion of a bitch reared a wonderful child that America can be proud of. Chelsea has never embarrassed her parents or the nation like the Bush twins did so many times. Hillary and Bill reared that kid and it speaks well of their true natures as parents...and human beings.
Come on folks- think about it. Do you really think Michelle Obama or Elizabeth Edwards would bring to the table the same skills and experience Bill Clinton would bring as First Gentleman? The man has exhibited some tremendous humanitarian and diplomatic skills post-presidency, and isn't it important to have someone help the president try to mend some of the global hatred toward American Bush has spawned?
Bill knew what he was doing when he latched on to Hillary back in college. He knew her intelligence and sense of responsibility would compliment his impetuousness and folksiness. We all know it wasn't about sexual heat- it was about finding the right mate to help him advance his political ambitions. And she may have known the same chemistry might one day help her own political aspirations. So?
I don't trust ANY politician. I'm backing Hillary because I think she has core values similar to my own. I have no interest in dissecting her every word and vote as a Senator because I know it was just a stepping stone for her anyway.
If it were a perfect world, I'd be backing Dennis Kucinich for President. But he's too honest and that shit doesn't go over with voters.
The men have had long enough to lead this nation back to greatness. It's time for a change. And I'd feel safer being a female American queer with a bitch like Hillary in office.
