MSM Warned: Be Nice or Hillary Won’t Give Us Her Presidency!

Via Sissy Willis, who writes: "Anita Kuntz's 1993 NYT Sunday Mag illustration of "Saint Hillary" graced what Peggy Noonan later called "the first and still definitive Hillary Clinton take-down." Update: Airbrushed from the New York Times online during the 2007-08 primary, ["Saint Hillary"] has apparently been restored": Read "Saint Hillary", by the late Michael Kelly,  here.

I know, I know, I said I would write no more on politics, except where it affects the church, but this isn't really about politics. It's about the media. Truthfully, when I'm griping about politics, it's almost always about the press. In this case I'm more amused than annoyed.The source of my amusement is this politico piece, which I found during one of my increasingly rare surveys of the Drudge Report. Drudge had singled out one line of the piece as provocative:“Look, she hates you. P … [Read more...]

Hillary, Stop Being Coy! Fight Sexism; It’s YOUR TIME!

Mother Jones Martinez

While traveling yesterday I had a chance to catch up on my reading and discovered that Hillary Clinton is "thinking about" running for President.We love her when she is coy, don't we? I can't wait to see her new presidential posters. Remember this one, from 2008?2008 was a big year for Democrat candidates drawn with just a hint of totalitarian flavor. Hillary's rising sun was reminiscent of Chairman Mao, Obama's posters often ran more toward soviet propaganda.That was then, and … [Read more...]

Susan Rice is a Diversion from Obama’s own Words to UN – UPDATES

Obama UN

The mainstream media keeps wondering about UN Ambassador Susan Rice, and the fact that post-Benghazi she went on five Sunday Mornings shows, five days after the event, to say -- over and over again -- that the attack on our Libyan consulate and the death of four Americans, including Ambassador Christopher Stevens was all due to a video no one had ever heard of, is just odd.I mean, hey guys, almost ten days days after Rice's appearances (and five days after his administration was finally … [Read more...]

Obama meets with Biden, Clinton _ UPDATED

Apparently today President Obama met with his gaffe-stricken veep and his Secretary of State. A few wags have suggested recently that a put-upon Obama may "switch" these two -- putting Biden at State (John Kerry will be crushed, and our diplomatic relations may never be the same, anywhere) and Hillary Clinton on his ticket.Mrs. Clinton would certainly be a better debater against Paul Ryan than Biden.Lots of opinion out there. Some think Hillary won't do it -- that she and Bill Clinton … [Read more...]

Why Robert Reich is Wrong – UPDATED

Hillary Pretty in White

Robert Reich--claiming "no inside information"--spells why he believes/recommends that Hillary Clinton and Joe "Boom-boom" Biden should trade places:Why do I say this? Because Obama needs to stir the passions and enthusiasms of a Democratic base that’s been disillusioned with his cave-ins to regressive Republicans. Hillary Clinton on the ticket can do that.Moreover, the economy won’t be in superb shape in the months leading up to Election Day. Indeed, if the European debt crisis grows wor … [Read more...]

Ration me? Hey, Ration U2! – UPDATED

Regular readers know I am a big U2 fan. I've even slipped U2 songs into previous Advent posts.But if the phonies in Cancun are going to start talking about rationing the lives of others in order to save Gaia, they're going to have to start looking at other excesses they can eliminate, first. That's my Tuesday column: Rationing Bono & Other Gaia-Saving IdeasCuriously, no one at these conferences ever suggests that less-draconian measures, affecting a relative minority of human beings, … [Read more...]

Obama crashes; Hillary Waits – UPDATE

Don't know if this is making the rounds, but it should be - Obi's Sister cracked me up with this opening:While the honeymoon has been over for a while, inside sources whisper that Obama is now sleeping on America’s couch. It won’t be long before he’s kicked out of the house and asks his secretary find him a place to live.Obi's Sister wonders why Hillary Clinton did not speak up about strong-arm tactics from Obamites during the 2008 campaign? Hillary, like Ronald Reagan, would never expose an … [Read more...]

Eavesdropping on Barack & Rahm – UPDATE

During the 2008 campaign, I wrote a little playlet wherein Candidate Obama--his poll numbers dipping with the emergence of Gov. Palin--visited Bill Clinton for advice on how to win.Don Clinton: (leering a little) She's got nice legs, that Governor p*tana, eh? I wouldn't mind me some of that. Get me an Executive Office Spanking in Anchorage, that's what I say, Haw Haw! Get us a game of "Mayor, May I? Haw! That li'l girl's got spunk. I love spunk. My ol' consigliere and her oughta get … [Read more...]

US Flag not flying in Haiti Relief Compound?

Other nations are proudly flying their flags as they assist Haiti in recovering from a devastating earthquake.But the United States is not.Our nation has conducted relief efforts for decades through our military, saving millions of people from death, disease, and starvation. Like France, Britain, and Croatia, we have flown our flag during those operations not to note occupation but to represent the American people’s solidarity with those suffering from disaster. That historical record is a … [Read more...]

SecState in a Headband?

So, the Obama administration's "smart diplomacy" on Iran is not working. And this is very troubling, indeed. Iran is test-firing increasingly advanced missiles at a time when, as Ed Morrissey notes, the B+ President Obama has awarded himself includes having both "made progress toward halting" nuclear weapons in North Korea and um...cancelling our installation of missile shields in Eastern Europe.Read all of Ed's piece, and then consider for a second how difficult it is to be president, … [Read more...]
