Hillary Doing the Man thing?

They've been showing Hillary throwing down a shot with a beer. It's a joke, right? This reminds me of past Dem presidential candidate Michael Dukakis (elected with the help of superdelegates?) who sealed the fate of his presidency when he tried to do "the man thing" by riding in a tank. Here's an image from an attack ad used against him.

And then there's that great white hunter, Bwana Kerry, whose hunting outings were cause for laughter and derision.

So, the question is, how about the Hillary, belting down those brews? How real is that scene?

Will the hair of the dog come back to bite her? If it doesn't that'll tell us where the corpstream media think their bread is buttered. So far, it's been presented without any reference to past efforts by candidates to pander to blue collar guy demographics.


Rob Kall has spent his adult life as an awakener and empowerer-- first in the field of biofeedback, inventing products, developing software and a music recording label, MuPsych, within the company he founded in 1978-- Futurehealth, and founding, organizing and running 3 conferences: Winter Brain, on Neurofeedback and consciousness, Optimal Functioning and Positive Psychology (a pioneer in the field of Positive Psychology, first presenting workshops on it in 1985) and Storycon Summit Meeting on the Art Science and Application of Story-- each the first of their kind.  Then, when he found the process of raising people's consciousness and empowering them to take more control of their lives  one person at a time was too slow, he founded Opednews.com-- which has been the top search result on Google for the terms liberal news and progressive opinion for several years. Rob began his Bottom-up Radio show, broadcast on WNJC 1360 AM to Metro Philly, also available on iTunes, covering the transition of our culture, business and world from predominantly Top-down (hierarchical, centralized, authoritarian, patriarchal, big)  to bottom-up (egalitarian, local, interdependent, grassroots, archetypal feminine and small.) Recent long-term projects include a book, Bottom-up-- The Connection Revolution, debillionairizing the planet and the Psychopathy Defense and Optimization Project.
