The Iowa caucuses haven't been held yet and already the crazy talk has started. This time it isn't Howard Dean's mental facilities that are under attack, this time around Karl Rove is hinting/suggesting/implying that Hillary is a bit ding-a-ling-ish in the belfry . . . and the rubes in town are on his side!
Does America's free press step in and label it as the start of the smear season? Noooo! They keep a straight face while Rove shows how easily they can be manipulated.
greatest warrior president George W. Bush say "Fool me once . . . won't get
fooled again!"? Hah! Dubya has misunderestimated America's
intelligence level once again. Who needs
quality journalism when the Internets will deliver a "second the motion" effort
from Rove that reinforces John Stewart's recent example of propaganda in action
with a comedy bit titled "The Bitches Are Crazy!"
If Stewart and Rove agree, Hillary is toast.
third term governor positioning himself for a new attempt at winning the
Democratic Party's Presidential nomination?
Hillary can explain in minute detail how the past severe winter proves that global warming is here, but the voters in America aren't going to fall for that example of Philadelphia lawyer double think.
Can the Democrats get guys to vote for Hillary by explaining that she was the real brains behind Bill Clinton's two terms in office?
If Karl Rove is suggesting that Hilary is non compos mentis, then the tone of the intellectual level for the next Presidential election has been set and it is up to the Democrats to see if they can use (Rush?) limbo dance moves to duck under it.
Speaking of the possibility that Cliven Bundy will run for Congress in his home state, is it true (as Jim Healy would say) that he wants his campaign to be a referendum on this question: "If Republicans, who hate President Obama, say they don't like Obama is that a prima facie case for charging them with a hate crime?"
While pundits, journalists, and historians are doing the keystrokes for a massive amount of nostalgic pieces about events and pop culture footnotes from fifty, seventy five and one hundred years ago, who will be the first scribe to wonder if President Obama, who is prohibited from running for a third tem as the resident in the White House, will run for any other office after moving out of the place on Pennsylvania Avenue?
Once, previously, a former President, John Quincy Adams, returned to Washington as a congressional representative. President Obama is a relatively young man and appears to be in good health, so he might find the prospect of being a freshman congressional representative who gets oodles of facetime on the evening news broadcasts has a certain allure for a Democrat who could be a thorn in the side of the Republicans if he joins the cast of "usual suspects" who perpetually pepper the nightly news with comments representing the species often called "the loyal opposition."
Meanwhile, in the late spring of 2014, commencement speakers are closely inspecting each new edition of the New York Times for tell-tale clues for trend-spotting items to be included in their attempts to sound optimistic as they send this year's graduating classes out into a bright and shiny world full of home foreclosures, student debt, and a glutted job market.
Is the question "do you want an order of fries to go along with your order?" the official motto for the class of 2014?
How does the world look in the spring of 2014? We've set the tone for this year by telling a Boston Red Sox's fan that our prediction is that Derek Jeter's official last at bat in his last season will be a walk-off grand slam that wins the seventh game of the World Series. It's just a premonition and we aren't going to back it with a million to one bet. . . but we will call upon a trustworthy friend to make a certain wager regarding the results of the 2016 Presidential Election in the USA.
It seems that liberal talk show host Randy Rhodes is about to retire and if that happens will there be any Liberal pundits left in broadcast media? Don't Conservative pundits need a target? How will Uncle Rushbo get along if he can't go on a rant about Pro-liberal propaganda parading as news?
The Democrats are bound to be borderline apoplectic as they are haunted by the specter of a revived Bush Dynasty becomes a very real possible outcome and the Republicans, who have been seething with animosity every day that President Obama sits in the Oval Office, will whip themselves into a state of misogynistic frenzy while contemplating the potential for a woman reviving a Clinton Dynasty.
