Another co-presidency is just what this country needs! Riiiiiiiiiight! I have barely gotten over the first Clinton Co-Presidency. I STILL have not gotten over the scandals and, worst, the shame they brought to the White House.
And America is about to do it again!
Never allow any one to tell you that Americans are not gluttons for punishment. We LOVE pain and disgrace! We lap up shame with the gusty of a hound dog! How else to explain the strong likelihood that Mrs. Bill Clinton (Hillary Diane Rodham Clinton) will be elected (re-elected?) to the office of President, returning her “skirt-chasing husband”, Slick Willie” to those once hallowed halls. There is no other explanation.
How will we ever know who is making the decisions? It would be absolutely foolish to believe anything either one says, as they are both renown for their skill at prevarication. “Double Talk” is their FIRST language. Bill is without doubt the ultimate politician. He has learned to fake sincerity. Hillary is not that accomplished... yet. Returning the Clintons to the White House is the equivalent of returning Nero to the Rome. And yet… it is looking more and more as if America is going to do exactly that.
I really feel for the Secret Service detail assigned to the Clintons. The horror stories from Slick Willie’s reign began, some time ago, to become public… and suddenly… they were cut off. How a Secret Service Agent could, in good conscious, stand guard outside the door of a room where the President is “entertaining”, or being “entertained” by, a female guest other than his wife, is beyond me. There’s something morally wrong about that. I don’t envy the Secret Service assigned that detail.
There is something deeply, deeply, wrong with a society…any society… that celebrates a lifestyle, such as that of the Clintons, enough that that society is willing to install “those people” as the nations leaders. It is a fatally flawed society.
Our nation has taken the low road often enough now that, apparently, the majority of us see nothing wrong with following a couple of people who exemplify the lowest common denominator among us.
My mother had a word for people whose lifestyles mirrored those of the Clintons. She would refer to them as “common”. Translated… that meant the lowest of the low.
In the meantime, I must make a note to myself to make sure my dues to the “Vast Right-Wing Conspiracy” are paid in full!
