HILLARY'S COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF PROBLEM
(see descriptor morphs)

by Mia T, 10.02.05

It isn't that they can't see the solution. It is that they can't see the problem.

G. K. Chesterton








eviews of "Commander-in-Chief" mislead; they suggest that this new ABC offering, this electuary of suds and psychologizing, is optional for missus clinton, that Rod Lurie's latest clinton agitprop is nothing more than the icing on missus clinton's inaugural cake.

The reviews miss the point of the show because they fail to identify missus clinton's problem in the first place. And circular reasoning compounds the error.


THE PROBLEM

While America appears not to be ready for a female president under any circumstances, the post-9/11 realities pose special problems for a female presidential candidate. Add to these the problems unique to missus clinton. The reviews make the mistake of focusing on the problems of the generic female presidential candidate running during ordinary times.

These are not ordinary times. America is waging the global War on Terror; the uncharted territory of asymmetric netherworlds is the battlefield; the enemy is brutal, subhuman; the threat of global conflagration is real.

Defeating the enemy isn't sufficient. For America to prevail, she must also defeat a retrograde, misogynous, troglodyte mindset. To successfully prosecute the War on Terror, it is essential that the collective patriarchal islamic culture perceives America as politically and militarily strong. Condi Rice excepted, this requirement presents an insurmountable hurdle for any female presidential candidate, and especially missus clinton, historically antimilitary, forever the pitiful victim, and, according to Dick Morris, "the biggest dove in the clinton administration."

It is ironic that had the clintons not failed utterly to fight terrorism... not failed to take bin Laden from Sudan... not failed repeatedly to decapitate a nascent, still stoppable al Qaeda... the generic female president as a construct would still be viable... missus clinton's obstacles would be limited largely to standard-issue clintonisms: corruption, abuse, malpractice, malfeasance, megalomania, rape and treason... and, in spite of Juanita Broaddrick, or perhaps because of her, Rod Lurie would be reduced to perversely hawking the "First Gentleman" instead of the "Commander-in-Chief."


 Why ABC's "Commander-in-Chief" is a Condi Rice clone (with additions)

STEP 1

 

Is Hillary Clinton tough enough to be president?

That question is increasingly being asked as speculation mounts that the New York Senator will seek the Democratic nomination in 2008.

A front-page story in USA Today - "Can Hillary be Elected Commander in Chief?" - explores the issue and features a poll that contains troubling news for Hillary and her supporters.

When respondents were asked if they would rate Clinton highly (4 or 5 on a 5-point scale):

  • Only 36 percent said she could handle the situation in Iraq if elected president.

  • Just 38 percent said she would effectively protect the country from terrorist attack.

  • 59 percent thought Clinton is not strong on national security.

  • 42 percent said she would use military force wisely as president.

  • 56 percent doubted she could handle an international crisis.

  • Only half said she is a strong and decisive leader.

Overall, 37 percent said they "strongly disagree" or "somewhat disagree" with the statement "Hillary Clinton is tough enough to president."

Washington insiders say Clinton has been repositioning herself to beef up her standing among voters as a strong supporter of the military who could be an effective commander in chief.

She is the first New York senator to sit on the Armed Services Committee, and recently introduced legislation to boost the Army by 80,000 soldiers over the next four years.

She was nominated by the Pentagon -- "with which her husband often had contentious relations, particularly on gays in the military -- to serve on a blue-ribbon panel studying how to foster better cooperation among the military services," USA Today reports.

A recent study by National Journal showed Clinton's record on defense, foreign policy and economics last year made her the 34th most liberal senator, while in 2003 she had ranked ninth.

But critics say Clinton's recent shift smacks of a political makeover aimed at polishing her national security credentials before a 2008 run.

"I think these are absolutely newfound views," William Black, executive director of the anti-Clinton political action committee Stop Her Now, told USA Today.

"This is someone coming from an administration that had open disdain for the military.

"Her whole involvement in getting on the Armed Services Committee is a calculated political ploy to burnish up her national security and defense credentials. She certainly didn't seem to care a whit about the military before."

Some GOP analysts say Hillary's decision not to divorce her husband after he admitted having an affair with Monica Lewinsky, which garnered sympathy from voters during her run for the Senate, could raise questions about her toughness if she seeks the White House.

"She's going to have a problem in reconciling voters' pity for her plight as first lady with seeing her as a figure with heft on foreign policy and defense issues," said GOP pollster Kellyanne Conway.

"That's the nagging underpinning that nobody likes to talk about, the 800-pound gorilla on her back."

Poll: Hillary Can't Be Commander in Chief
NewsMax.com Wires
Tuesday, July 19, 2005

The Hotline also polled on some questions concerning 2008. In their poll, Hillary Clinton has a positive approval rating of 48 to 44 percent.

By contrast, Condoleezza Rice has a 59 to 25 percent approval rating.

By an overwhelming percentage of 85 to 9, respondents said they would be comfortable supporting a female candidate for the White House. And by a greater margin, 86 to 4 percent, participants said they would vote to support an African-American candidate who was well qualified.

Rice also strongly outpolls Clinton on all national security questions: who is stronger on national security issues, ability to handle an international crisis, ability to protect the U.S. from a terrorist attack, ability to manage Iraq and ability to be a "strong and decisive" leader.

The Power fo Rice
National Review Online
June 14, 2004
Eric Pfeiffer

Last night's addition of the entertainment news show "The Insider" had a poll. Who would you vote for as President in 2008 if the candidates were: Condi Rice, Hillary Rodham-Rodham, or Oprah Winfrey?

Well, Condi won the poll.

ommander-in-Chief" Mackenzie Allen is a carefully crafted Condi-Rice clone. She is not hillary clinton. Indeed, she is specifically antihillary.

This can mean only one thing: hillary clinton and her agitprop machine have determined that missus clinton, the construct, is unelectable.

Because ABC is part of the permanent clinton agitprop, because the "Commander-in Chief" head writer is a veteran of clinton campaigns and hillary's press office, because the show has been perfectly positioned to desensitize the electorate to the notion of a woman president just in time for hillary, because of all of the above, one would not expect ABC to model the show's protagonist after hillary clinton's infinitely more qualified potential rival.

So why has it done just that?

"Commander-in-Chief" is electoral legerdemain. It is yet another clinton two-step intended to fool the voters. It is designed to:

  1. desensitize them to the concept of a female president, using a highly qualified exemplar, the Condi-Rice clone.

    These are not ordinary times. America is waging the global War on Terror; the uncharted territory of asymmetric netherworlds is the battlefield; the enemy is brutal, subhuman; the threat of global conflagration is real.

    Defeating the enemy isn't sufficient. For America to prevail, she must also defeat a retrograde, misogynous, troglodyte mindset. To successfully prosecute the War on Terror, it is essential that the collective patriarchal islamic culture perceives America as politically and militarily strong.
    Condi Rice excepted, this requirement presents an insurmountable hurdle for any female presidential candidate, and especially missus clinton, historically antimilitary, forever the pitiful victim, and, according to Dick Morris, "the biggest dove in the clinton administration."

  2. bait-and-switch: conflate the highly qualified, electable Condi-Rice clone with the highly unqualified, unelectable hillary clinton

    STEP2
     

ALL HILLARY, ALL THE TIME...

This is not to say the series isn't ALL about hillary. You just don't SEE hillary.

You don't see hillary's looming presence.

You don't see her smallness. Her haughty distain. Her flat affect.

You don't see her corruption. Her ineptitude. Her banality.

You don't see her rage. Her coldness.

You don't see her abusiveness. Her vulgarity. Her stridency.

You don't see her extremism. Her balkanizing. Her lust for power.

You don't see the harridan. You don't see the Hildabeast.

 

SHELL GAME

What you do see is Condi, Condi in a President Allen "shell."

You see a President Allen who is idealistic, is accomplished in her own right, does not crave power, has a nonpartisan streak, is an intellectual, an expert in foreign policy (Mideast expertise replaces Soviet for the obvious reason), was plucked from the chancellorship of a great university, speaks with a quiet strength.

You see a President Allen who even looks like Condi Rice. The strong bone structure, the wideset intelligent brown eyes, the full lips, the brunette, retro flip, (aka 'power flip' post-Condi), the great figure. And perhaps definitively, the legs.

It would be naive to think that this wasn't a precise clinton calculation, what with her main man the lead writer 'n all.

At first I thought it was a feint. If "Commander-in-Chief" is a too-transparent hillary infomercial, ABC's agenda will certainly backfire. Perhaps that was the initial reasoning and explains why, for example, gorgeous Geena Davis and not some squat bottle-blonde matron, was cast in the lead.

 

HOLLYWOOD-DC RATIONALE

But in the end, there are two reasons (corresponding to the two cities of the Hollywood-DC axIs) for the Condi clone.

The first is straightforward: Hollywood typecasts. Condi is presidential and hillary is a fishwife.

And the second is the thesis, above, that hillary clinton and her agitprop machine have determined that missus clinton, the construct, (missus clinton, "as is,") is unelectable, and so the clinton agitprop must desensitize and bait-and-switch.

They will desensitize the electorate to the concept of a female president, (using a highly qualified exemplar, the Condi-Rice clone because they have determined that a hillary exemplar would be rejected, that, indeed, given the post-9/11 realities, Condi Rice is perhaps the only female exemplar that would work.)

Then they will bait and switch; conflate the highly qualified, electable Condi-Rice clone with the highly unqualified, unelectable hillary clinton. Indeed, the clinton conflation ploy to make hillary acceptable to the voter is already a clinton standard operating procedure, witness missus clinton's address to the Democratic Leadership Council in Columbus, Ohio in July.

WHY MISSUS CLINTON IS DANGEROUS
FOR THE CHILDREN
FOR AMERICA
FOR THE WORLD

They turned our bridge to the 21st century into a tunnel back into the 19th century. Back us out of that Republican tunnel, fill it in, go back across the bridge.... We'll have a giant celebration when we come back to Columbus in 2020. There's nothing more wonderful than making dreams come true.

issus clinton is a dud.

I could say she has all of bill clinton's baggage and none of his charm, except I don't find bill clinton charming. What she lacks, in my view, is lubricant. Snake oil. She grates.

It's more than simple dislike. You don't want to see her; and you definitely don't want to hear her.

Missus clinton is everyman's worst nightmare: ex-wife, fishwife, frigid wife, mother-in-law; worse, the abusive Nazi commandant in the Lina Wertmuller masterpiece. When she humiliates, which is always, she dons the military-issue undershirt, she grabs the whip.

The clintons are clearly aware of this problem and are attempting to mitigate it with veneer.

Their first ploy is to pushpoll to artificially jack up missus clinton's numbers; this is a relatively easy task, given a compliant press. This illusion of electability is intended to fool the voters, activate the herd mentality and ultimately fool the smart money of the David Geffen-Harold Ickes stripe.

It won't work. Missus clinton has 100% name recognition. Any vote she doesn't already have, she won't get. Conversely, many voters have 0% information on the clinton abuses of power and utter failures. From this it follows that many votes she has today, she won't have tomorrow.

Their second ploy is to conflate "bill" and "hillary." "The clintons" become a single construct. Missus clinton arrogates bill's "bridge to the 21st century " as "theirs." And, by lifting the lyrics straight from Pinocchio, she becomes "the man from 'hope'."

The danger here for missus clinton is that with the bridge and the hope come the abuses and the utter failures.


AFTERWORD:

Who in heaven's name is writing missus clinton's speeches? They make her sound like a cross between Pinocchio on Halcyon and a clueless tourist from Park Ridge, Illinois driving into Manhattan during rush hour. Oops.

And the plagiarizing... I mean, the clintons are shameless. And it isn't only Pinocchio.

In 2002, I wrote that the bridge to the 21st century was, arguably, clinton's most delusional conceit, that it overshot the mark by at least 1400 years.

To be fair, missus clinton's 19th-century reference is to that <yawn> retrograde 'retrograde Republicans' cliché, whereas my 7th-century reference is to the retrograde-in-fact islamofascist terrorists, whose jihadi declarations and acts of war against us the clintons willfully ignored for eight long years--allowing al Qaeda to grow exponentially in strength and reach, setting us up--very nicely, thank you--for 9/11 and its cataclysmic aftermath.

WHY MISSUS CLINTON IS DANGEROUS
FOR THE CHILDREN
FOR AMERICA
FOR THE WORLD


Ian Hunter recently observed that our leaders are shrinking. "From a Churchill (or, for that matter, a Margaret Thatcher) to a [pre-9/11] Tony Blair; from Eisenhower to Clinton; from Diefenbaker to Joe Clark; from Trudeau to Chretien -- we seem destined to be governed by pygmies."

Mindless rhinestone-studded-and-tented kleptocracy
Mia T, November 1999


ur leaders are inexorably shrinking.  According to current mathematical models, they are shrinking at a rate of 6.7 per linear dimension per election cycle per terrorist attack.  At this rate, most leaders will be nanoleaders by the 2020s.

The leader-shrinkage function is discontinuous for
1992 =< t <= 2000 and continuous for all other t.

The 1990s saw in America a sudden, discontinuous drop in leader size, a drop that retrospectively, post-9/11, has been theorized to be its greatest lower bound.
(Can anything be lower than a clinton?)

"Two for the price of one," the clinton pitch in '92 -- (Did the clintons understand at the time that one was not enough?) -- only made matters worse. Missus clinton in the West Wing actually added to this discontinuous decrease in leader size.

History will record, therefore, that the clintons--the twofer, (1992-2000), were America's first nano-president.

The clintons continue to imperil virtually every sector of society, indeed, continue to imperil America and the world, with their exponentially increasing facility in manipulating electoral/policy matter and energy at ever smaller scales. Their "school uniforms" of the '90s became "nanotech uniforms" today; both are proxies for "fight terrorism," which the clintons have neither the stomach nor the know-how to do.

The twofer construct, transposed to circumvent the 22nd Amendment, is now poised to retake power. A self-replicating, Constitution-specific pathogen, the clinton nano-presidency, post-9/11, is a danger that we cannot -- we must not -- abide.

Well, maybe so. I had started drawing my own political cartoons and posting them on FR, but my scanner quit on me. In the very last one I drew, which no one saw, the Democratic Donkey receives a call from the Media Shark, who tells him that his old flame Cindy Sheehan has found him and is harrassing him about why he no longer reports on her.

The donkey sighs and says he will consult "the Empress." Then we see him in the "Deepest, Darkest Chambers of the DNC Headquarters," where, in a takeoff on "Star Wars," a holographic image of a sinister character with the face hidden underneath a cowl appears. The donkey kneels down and says, "Oh, Master, how can we save the Media from Cindy Sheehan?"

The "Empress" responds, "Clear your mind, my young apprentice. Only you can save him."

In the last panel, the "Empress" is revealed to be Hillary Clinton, her face underneath the cowl. She says, "And do not come to me with issues irrelevant to 2008!"

Here was the first panel. The next two were never posted.

CORRECTION:

The reviews miss the point of the show, (i.e., the show is not optional but necessary (though hardly sufficient) if clinton is to prevail), because the reviews fail to identify missus clinton's problem in the first place. And circular reasoning compounds the error.

Which china?
This?

THE GIFT THAT KEEPS ON GIVING: The Clintons, I mean. Today's Washington Post scoop of their absconding with gifts solicited for and accepted by the White House as part of a renovation project is simply jaw-dropping. Hilarious, as well. Cheesier?

Scale of BONIOR, tooth of WOLF,
HILLARY'S memory, maw and gulf
A ravin'd salt-sea shark,
Ears of the MARTINS digg'd i' the dark,
Gall of BILL, and McCURRY'S slips
"Noes" of LANNY, and HUBBELL'S lips,
Finger of ICKES ditch-deliver'd by a drab,
Make the gruel thick and slab:
Add thereto a Chinese squadron,
For the ingredients of our cauldron.
 
ALL
Double, trouble TOIL for HUBBELL;
Fire burn and cauldron bubble.
 
SECOND WITCH:
Cool it with cash and blood,
Then the charm is firm and good.

I believe that this espionage case -- the Chinese -- is the worst in the history of this country. They got just about everything that we have and you'll see it in the out years in their development of their weapons.

China space shot has military implications

China launches first manned space flight
Reuters ^ | 10-14-03

Wed 15 October, 2003 02:07 BST

BEIJING (Reuters) - China has launched its first manned space flight from the Gobi desert, Xinhua news agency says, in its bid to become the third country to put a man in orbit after the former Soviet Union and the United States.

The Shenzhou V, or "Divine Ship V", was expected to orbit the Earth 14 times before returning after about 21 hours.

Xinhua said the craft carried astronaut Yang Liwei, 38. The launch on Wednesday, 42 years after the Soviet Union put the first man into space, marked a milestone for China's secretive space programme, which analysts say has its sights set on a manned mission to the moon.

Johnny Chung audio included above

What has Mr. Chung told us? He has told us that General Ji Sheng De, the head of the military intelligence of the People's Liberation Army, which is the equivalent of our CIA, gave him $300,000. General Ji would be the equivalent, as I said, of our CIA. It was wired to him through Lieutenant Colonel Liu Chao Ying of China Aerospace, whose father was the head of the People's Liberation Army at one time and a member of the hierarchy in the Chinese Government.

Mr. Chung has told us that the general told him the following: ''We really like your President. We hope he will be reelected. I will give you 300,000 U.S. dollars, and you can give it to your President and the Democrat party.'' Shortly after this Mr. Chung gave $35,000 to the DNC.

Mr. Chung has told us that he was told other people were also giving money to ''do good things for China.'' One of the other people who was mentioned was Mark Middleton, a former high-level White House aide. He was told that Mark Middleton got a half a million dollars from a source that remains unclear. Mr. Middleton has taken the fifth with this committee. He has refused to talk to us.

Johnny Chung has also told us that he was told that a Boeing representative from Hong Kong, a Mr. Young, was also working with the Chinese Government. We still haven't resolved who this is.

Johnny Chung has informed us that he was told by another source that Charlie Trie asked the Chinese Government for $1 million to help the President. He'll testify that he saw the head of the United States consulate in Beijing take cash in exchange for visas. This is just outrageous.

Did Mark Middleton get half a million dollars from the Chinese Government? If he did, what was it for? Did Charlie Trie try to get $1 million from the Chinese Government, and did he get it? We know that he got over $1 million from a Macau developer with close ties to China.

Does most everyone know that Hillary is a closet lesbian and is well rumored that her bed buddy is Janet Reno? Why do you think that after a hundred or so adultrous affairs that her obbessive addictive husband has had, she is still with him...because she has had her own flings with God knows who, because she IS guilty the same things...I have heard on tv an interview with one of his ex bed buddies many things about what went on in Arkansas when Billy Boy was Gov. and Hillary cheating on him with men and he cheating on her with other women...
So basically, they're only staying with each other for prominence, prestige and APPEARANCE. *(Things aren't always what they appear to be....sooooooo true!!)

hillary's burqa

unny. My Margaret-O'Leary ensemble doesn't seem to "screen out" my gender....

Tina Brown is onto something with her 'burqa' reference, but as is the leftie wont, she has it exactly backwards.

While Brown is correct to suggest that the swath cut by missus clinton isn't "aggressively masculine," she is wrong to imply that underneath the self-imposed burqa, missus clinton is female. Genderwise, missus clinton is exactly what you see: submissively male.

Brown's reason for the pantsuits is, thus, wrong. Missus clinton's gender has nothing to do with this particular clinton coverup. (NB: Tina Brown's 'theory of the hillary pantsuit' is also easily disproved by two clinton counterexamples: missus clinton's burqa-length dresses and her reflexive use of the victim pose.)

The reason pantsuits are a must for missus clinton is that she must screen out her lower (as opposed to 'lowest') extremities. (That she is also screening out her submissive affect remains viable, however.)

Do you recall ever seeing hillary clinton during, say, the last ten years, wearing a skirt or dress whose hemline fell below the knee and above the ankle (as best as those bounds--and, hence, that area of leg--can be distinguished from the whole)?

Early in the clinton 'presidency,' a photo of a shin-length-beskirted clinton made the rounds. Even the Times ran with it, as I recall.

A clinton poll wasn't needed to determine that with her legs and low center of gravity, hillary-in-a-shin-length-skirt-as-a-political-construct would be rejected by virtually every male voter extant.

Never again, therefore, did this purported feminist wear anything shorter than a burqa....


 
It isn't that they can't see the solution. It is that they can't see the problem.

G. K. Chesterton

 

... While America appears not to be ready for a female president under any circumstances, the post-9/11 realities pose special problems for a female presidential candidate. Add to these the problems unique to missus clinton. The reviews make the mistake of focusing on the problems of the generic female presidential candidate running during ordinary times.

These are not ordinary times. America is waging the global War on Terror; the uncharted territory of asymmetric netherworlds is the battlefield; the enemy is brutal, subhuman; the threat of global conflagration is real.

Defeating the enemy isn't sufficient. For America to prevail, she must also defeat a retrograde, misogynous, troglodyte mindset. To successfully prosecute the War on Terror, it is essential that the collective patriarchal islamic culture perceives America as politically and militarily strong. Condi Rice excepted, this requirement presents an insurmountable hurdle for any female presidential candidate, and especially missus clinton, historically antimilitary, forever the pitiful victim, and, according to Dick Morris, "the biggest dove in the clinton administration."

It is ironic that had the clintons not failed utterly to fight terrorism... not failed to take bin Laden from Sudan... not failed repeatedly to decapitate a nascent, still stoppable al Qaeda... the generic female president as a construct would still be viable... missus clinton's obstacles would be limited largely to standard-issue clintonisms: corruption, abuse, malpractice, malfeasance, megalomania, rape and treason... and, in spite of Juanita Broaddrick, or perhaps because of her, Rod Lurie would be reduced to perversely hawking the "First Gentleman" instead of the "Commander-in-Chief."

I do not know what "Bump" means and I really dont care to know in the context of this Posting arena. As far as a burqa and her dressing code I could care less of that is as well, although it attracts my attention to the attire as well because in my moral code book any Republican (Royal) First Lady should dress the part of First Lady as should be. Ya know, in any other Country besides ours any woman in a prestigous, honorable, and yet desirable position and to the RIGHT hand of her husband AND NOT in place of or in FRONT OF is considered royalty. She should dress the part and not act or dress a bit down if you will.
To have character, morals and integrity even with clothing speaks of what is in the heart. Lets not get lost on clothing and this womans outward appearance, although she needs a bit, ok a lot of touching up both in the ward robe and attitude department. But her problem is not in her clothing or attitude it goes much deeper. The problem is not the fruit, but the root. Not the outward but the inward.
And Mia, What I have written about Mrs. Clinton is precisely true regarding her to be a lesbian but a closet one but not it being affiliated with her aspirations of being in the White House. One affair or a hundred, she turns her head because she does the same...

While channel surfing, I saw an advertisement on ABC for Commander-In-Chief. In the ad, they said that 26 million people watched the show last week. The Nielsen ratings for last week ( http://tv.zap2it.com/tveditorial/tve_main/1,1002,272|||weekly,00.html ) show 16 million viewers. ABC embellished by 10 million people! If they actually drew in the 26 million as claimed, it would put them right up with Desperate Housewives, which they obviously weren't. They finished #7. Did anybody else catch that?

Good catch but hardly surprising. 10 million is within the clinton congenital "margin of error."

REVERSE MORPH FOR HILLARY

by Mia T, 03.01.06

 

 

As the inaugural study in the Washington Post-Political Communication Lab collaboration, we studied attraction to familiar faces. A considerable body of research in social psychology derived from the classic studies of Stanford psychologist Robert Zajonc demonstrates that people evaluate objects they have encountered previously more favorably than novel objects, even when they do not consciously recognize the previously-encountered objects. In other words, "mere exposure" is sufficient to increase an object's likeability.

We are interested in the question because in the political arena, there is ample evidence of a familiarity bias in voting behavior. The fact that incumbents habitually win re-election by convincing margins may be attributable, in part, to the higher level of recognition of the incumbent's name and face.

We used digital face morphing technology to create relatively familiar and unfamiliar faces. More than 2,200 individuals participated in the study, a part of an ongoing collaborative effort by Stanford researchers Jeremy Bailenson, Nathan Collins, Shanto Iyengar, and Nick Yee.

hat a remarkably representative baseline photo of missus clinton.

My, my. Is there anything the lefties won't try to make this creature acceptable?

They've tried morphing hillary into Condi by way of Geena Davis and that didn't work.

So now they're experimenting with reversing the process.

Good thinking!
