Oh, me, oh, my.

I guess I'm not the only one to see seismic activity.

- Senator Hillary Clinton said on Monday that the opposing sides in the divisive debate about abortion should find ‘common ground’ to prevent unwanted pregnancies and ultimately reduce abortions, which she called a ‘sad, even tragic choice to many, many women . . . ’ Mrs Clinton, widely seen as a possible candidate for the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination in 2008, appeared to be reaching out beyond traditional core Democrats . . . (She offered praise) for the influence of ‘religious and moral values’ on delaying teenage girls from becoming sexually active.

- Raising aloft what she described as one of the favourites from her collection of AK47 automatic weapons, Mrs Clinton declared to wild cheers: “If they think some unelected judge in Washington is going to take away my constitutional rights, let them think again! Let them try! Let them come! I’d like to see them. They’ll have to prise this beauty from my cold, dead hands.”

Mrs Clinton has recently been reaching out beyond the Democratic Party’s core supporters on the gun control issue. Last week she was filmed while hunting in upstate New York, and was later seen dragging a dead deer to her new, five-litre Ford Exterminator sports utility vehicle.

- Senator Clinton yesterday led a defence-of-marriage vigil on the steps of City Hall in San Francisco. As supporters waved banners that said “Queer? Not here,” Mrs Clinton said marriage was a sacrosanct institution and urged gays: “If you want to get hitched, try the Lord.”


The first paragraph, of course, is from the New York Times, while the others could be considered satire or prescience depending on your perspective.

Expect the foreign media to be scathing; expect the complicit lamestream media to play it straight. Expect the usual groups to prostitute their principles to support the candidate from Chappaqua.

Must... control... fingers... of.... curiosity........
So, I can't tell from this. How are you finding these statements from Ms. Clinton?

...and I don't mean, how are you locating them. What do you feel about them?

Re: Must... control... fingers... of.... curiosity........
How do I feel about the fact that she is pandering to the right? I think it's dangerous, of course. She has made many statements regarding how inept people are regarding thinking for themselves and she has shown a disregard for the law previously (Whitewater, FBI files, Travelgate, to name the first three that immediately spring to my mind). It's especially dangerous since the media likes her and protects her (one example; contrast the coverage of closed-door sessions held by a president's wife with no standing in government regarding setting up socialized medicine with the coverage of Cheney's completely legal meetings with energy officials).

Frankly, I don't think she will win especially if Rice is on the Republican ticket; if she does, though, we can expect heavy inroads into real socialism. As she's actually said, the government knows how people's money should be spent better than the people do.

Didn't her campaign finance director just come up on charges of fraud?

Re: Must... control... fingers... of.... curiosity........
David Rosen? No, I don't think it was fraud, exactly; it was lying to the FEC about contributions during fundraisers. I think he was just an 'aide', anyway. And I'm sure she didn't know anything about it, any more than Bush would know about misrepresentations that his fundraising staff would be making to the FEC, had those occured. Oh, there's also Aaron Tonkin; another Hillary! fundraising aide who did plead guilty to fraud relating to Hillary! fundraisers. Again, I'm sure she knew nothing and no one will be dumb enough to contradict her.

More than just an aide
WASHINGTON (AP) -- Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton's former finance director has been indicted on charges of filing fictitious reports that misstated contributions for a Hollywood fund-raising gala for the senator, the Justice Department said Friday.

People die everyday, it's natural.
Milam was found decapitated; nonetheless, the state medical examiner, Fahmy Malak - notorious for his curious rulings -- declared the death to be of natural causes.

By the way, this link is to the Progressive Review; an anti-Bush website.

From Chappaqua? That's only because the Clintons are not welcome in the south, and she probably couldn't have been elected to the senate from anywhere other than New York. They weren't exactly welcomed into Chappaqua, especially with their stolen loot from the White House. And they were turned down flat on several bids to buy into NYC priciest co-ops.
Jan. 28th, 2005 09:18 pm (UTC)
I heard somewhere the other day (I wish I could remember where, but I don't) that she's spent only three nights in Chappaqua since setting the place up to meet the letter of the residency requirement (while, of course, ignoring the spirit of the law). Of course, we the Federal taxpayer cover the cost of renovations for security purposes and round-the-clock, year-round secret service protection for the place. Oh, and of course for Buddy, the occasional photo-op dog, before he was hit by a car.

Oh, come on... That stuff wasn't stolen; the movers grabbed those things by accident. And they returned all of the things the GSA was able to document.
