The promised three faces of Hillary failed to dent Barack Obama's lead after the last debate, and it may be curtains for Clinton's move to rent free residency at the White House. Saying, "Republicans can throw anything they want at me. I'm a fighter," she complained to moderator Tim Russet that she was always asked the first (gosh, gee whiz) question.
That's some fighter. She handled the attempted pronunciation of Putin's successor with equal stamina, "Med, Med, Med," looked away, saying, "whatever."
It is Medvedev.
Hillary's talking points seem to be written by Saturday Night Live writers, as suggested during the final debate, "Maybe we should offer Barack another pillow." Obama looked puzzled, glanced over at her, then a cloud appeared above his head: "Does she have the audacity to suggest I have hemorrhoids?" He shrugged it away, realizing it was another lame attempt at humor.
How would this, "Throw anything at me" fighter react to a red telephone call at three in the morning? "I'm not complaining, rock nuts, but why does everyone phone me first? Did you try Gordon Brown, Med-whatever, or Sarkozy? Oh no, let the French honeymooner sleep in. Maybe we should offer another pillow?"
"Sacra bleu! Is she suggesting I have le hemorrhoids?"
And as though Bill hasn't done enough to sabotage Hillary's campaign, he is now in stiff competition with a campaign worker from Texas saying, "Mexicans won't vote for Obama because he is black." Having an aversion to black, she must also skip reading newspapers and books, as the printed word is in black; is unaware of the Civil Rights movement; that Jesus was black; and though blacks did not come over on the Mayflower, they've been in the U.S. longer than the rest of this smorgasbord of people including the campaign worker.
Michelle Obama understandably speaks of pride in her country. The pride is shared by all who recognize that this miracle of Democracy is finally happening, and wow! We have a woman, a black man and the oldest man ever running for President of the United States.
The smorgasbord keeps getting better.
