First a joke for you:
One day last week, a fourth-grade teacher asked the children what their fathers did for a living.
All the typical answers came up: Fireman, Mechanic, Businessman, Salesman, Doctor........
However, little Justin was being uncharacteristically quiet, so when the teacher prodded him about his father, he replied,"My father's an exotic dancer in a gay cabaret and takes off his clothes in front of other men and they put money in his underwear. Sometimes, if the offer is really good, he will go home with some guy and stay with him all night for money."
The teacher, obviously shaken by this statement, hurriedly set the other children to work on some math problems and then took little Justin aside to ask him, "Is that really true about your father?"
"No," the boy said, "He works for the Democratic National Committee and is helping to get Hillary Clinton elected as our next President, but I was too embarrassed to say that in front of the other kids."
Or hows about the bumper sticker that says “Vote for Monica’s Boyfriend’s Wife”
Or the button picturing Monica that says “Vote Republican. The Democrats left a bad taste in my mouth.”
But seriously folks .. I get comments, like from Jim that say:
"Yes, okay, a woman president. No problem. But does it have to be this woman? Couldn't we have an honest woman who wasn't entangled in countless strands of political corruption?"
Oh, right, that hadn't stopped people from electing her husband.
Or from electing Bush.
Tell me why oh why the first woman president has to be some perfect moral compass when no male president before her, at least since I’ve been voting, has? (with the possible exception of Carter)
Why hold the first woman president to a standard we hope for but don’t demand from our male candidates?
And here’s what really galls me. Someone with NO voting record worth mentioning as seen HERE like Obama who almost never votes and has no positions that he can back up with actions, while Hillary has so many that she had to divide them into separate positions (something Obama lacks) as seen HERE, will probably be blown away by a slick media presentation called “Yes We Can” that you can see HERE
It comes from here:
I can see why people love him. He’s a feel good kind of guy, but he’s still all smoke and mirrors to me. I fear for him really because the last two idealists, the last two dreamers of the last century where assassinated and as much as he is not my candidate I understand the sentiment behind him.
I just hope that a bunch of old ladies can out vote the youngsters that are about to support us in our social security days. I'm starting to have my doubts. This is new and pretty slick and presages (neener, neener) the generational division between Clinton and Obama supporters more than any race or sex division will in this particular race.
