So let’s talk about Hillary’s, shall we say…”candor”? Sure, lets say “candor”. If I were offered millions and millions of dollars by corporate insiders and they would make me president by giving me donations through their PAC’s and their “think tanks” and their wives accounts and their kids accounts and one tiny, teensy pharmaceutical company put a million dollars in my campaign treasury…I would be just like Hillary. I would just forget where that money came from! Yes, Sir, even if it were say 10 Pharmaceutical companies, fifteen medical associations, and 11 insurance companies along with all the timber companies and, oh yeah, throw Big Oil in there too. Even if they gave me 33 million dollars I wouldn’t let them influence me!

Unless I really needed the money, I could always tell myself that I’d just “lead them along” until I was President. Something tells me that Hillary wouldn’t want to step too hard on those toes though, remember… she’s going to need those corporate dollars in another three years.

Something tells me that Hillary Clinton is a liar. Not a really big liar, a great BIG type liar, what does she think anyway, that we’re all freaking idiots? That’s like that line “I voted for the authorization on the War in Iraq, but I didn’t know the true facts. Well here it is Mrs. Clinton, if you don’t know the “true facts” on something, don’t vote on it!

Come to think of it, I believe that most Democrats ARE really stupid. Isn’t this woman the front-runner? Do we need a woman President so bad that we’ll take just about anyone? So far Hillary Clinton has shown the world that she’s not only a liar, but she’s a liar that believes everyone is stupid. She doesn’t realize it, but just because Bill Clinton can do it to her, doesn't mean that she can do it to the rest of the world. In fact, her husband is such a great liar, that I even believed that he was a pretty good President up to about a year ago! Hillary, you are not your husband. Stop it, you are embarrassing yourself!

Now we have two certifiable babble-heads leading the Democratic pack. I’m so glad that I didn’t expect anything better from a party of asses. Now before all of you Dumbocrats start thinking that I’m going to support the crazed Republicans, I know that you all aren’t too bright, but let me tell you that I’m not. Picking on Dumbocrats doesn’t automatically make you a gangster.

I’ll tell you this though, I wish that someone with a little more class and a bigger support base would get in the race. Edwards sounds good, but somehow I don’t really trust him all that much. Maybe Russ Feingold or Al Gore could brighten it up. I really like Dennis Kucinich, and if anyone in that party had any brains, instead of listening to TV pundits, they would be making their own minds up and he and Mike Gravel would be leading the pack, but no…the Dumbocrats can’t think on their own. They have to let the TV guys and the newspapers and the magazines tell them who’s on top.

If Hillary and Obama are the best this party can give us, we are in a terrible jam. David Byrne had it right years ago when he said;

The sound of gunfire, off in the distance
I'm getting used to it now
Lived in a brownstone, lived in the ghetto
I've lived all over this town

This ain't no party, this ain't no disco
this ain't no fooling around
No time for dancing, or lovey dovey
I ain't got time for that now*
