Auction Raises Big Bucks to Send Hillary Clinton to Jail
Prweb ^ | 4/4/06

Bids on eBay charity auction top $2,000 for the right to send Hillary Clinton to jail in an upcoming children's book. Winner will be caricatured as the hero who arrests a Hillary look-alike. Auction still has three days to go; funds to benefit U.S. troops.

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) April 4, 2006 -- A charity auction on eBay has already raised thousands of dollars in bids by offering a most unusual prize: the winner gets to throw Hillary Clinton into jail.

It's not the real Hillary Clinton, of course, just a cartoon look-alike of the New York senator, but that hasn't stopped bidders on the charity auction from pushing the price to over $2,000 with three days remaining. The high bidder will be caricatured in an upcoming children's book as the fictional hero who finally nabs Hillary Clunkton, a pantsuit-clad villain with an uncanny resemblance to Clinton. The money raised by the auction will be donated to Operation Gratitude, a charity that sends care packages to U.S. troops stationed overseas.

The cartoon Clunkton first rose to national prominence last fall as the arch-rogue in the controversial kid's book, “Help! Mom! There Are Liberals Under My Bed” (Kids Ahead; hardcover; ISBN 0976726904), written by Katharine DeBrecht. The picture book garnered national attention for its portrayal of Clunkton and a Ted Kennedy doppelganger taxing and regulating a lemonade stand, propelling it to #1 on the Barnes & Noble website. The tale also drew criticism from a long list of liberals, including Alan Colmes, Ron Reagan, and even Hillary Clinton's press secretary.

This spring, Clunkton returned in a new storybook by DeBrecht entitled “Help! Mom! Hollywood's in My Hamper” (Kids Ahead; hardcover: $15.95; ISBN 0976726912), which paired the politician with a plethora of Hollywood liberals, including characters resembling Barbra Streisand, Tom Cruise, and Madonna.

“The source of Congresswoman Hillary Clunkton's downfall is a secret for now,” says DeBrecht, a mother of three. “Whether it's snatching someone's lunch money, sneaking books attacking traditional values into classrooms, or even grabbing gifts from Santa's sleigh for an affirmative action program for naughty kids, there's no telling what a liberal like Clunkton will do!”

As of Monday evening, the charity auction's price stood at an eye-popping $2,030 with 46 bids, which DeBrecht says is proof that more than a few people would like to see an end to Hillary’s crusade for big government.

The auction, which is titled “Star in a Kid's Book & Send Hillary to Jail,” will be accepting bids on eBay until the evening of April 6. In addition to becoming immortalized as a sure-to-be-legendary children's hero, the winning bidder will also receive an autographed copy of the illustration depicting him or her apprehending Hillary. The auction can be viewed at http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=9503899147.

Orange jumpsuits do not suit Hillary's figure or her color

The RNC is missing an great opportunity to leverage the concept of a Freepathon.

I get requests all the time for donations from the Republican party and its candidates which hit the recycling bin on the fly unopened, because the Republican party has been largely unresponsive and ineffective.

However, I can see a definite possibility of paying for results that could net the RNC several hundred millions of dollars.

For instance, I will donate the maximum legal limit to the candidate in the election of the RNC's choice for the conviction of Cynthia McKinney on a felony charge of assaulting a Federal police officer and a MINIMUM sentence of 8 years in a Federal penitentiary.

I will donate the maximum legal limit to the candidate in the election of the RNC's choice for a high tech fence along the Mexican border that requires even a single kangaroo rat crossing the Rio Grande to produce a valid passport and three other valid photo IDs.

I will do the same for the conviction of Sandy Berger on a felony charge of theft and destruction of highly classified documents with a MINIMUM sentence of 10 years in a Federal penitentiary.

Dittos for the conviction of Hillary Clinton on a felony charge for the illegal possession of FBI files or for illegal campaign contributions in the matter involving Ron Paul, provided either includes a MINIMUM sentence of 10 years in a Federal penitentiary.

I will do the same for the elimination of the Federal Department of Education (incorporating any or all of its functions or programs in any other Federal agency or function invalidates this offer.)

Dittos for defunding National Public Radio or the Corporation of Public Broadcasting.

In all of the above cases, I bet there are thousands of like minded individuals who would join me.

We already have government by the highest bidder. I am just trying to make the process open and above board and use Internet technology to bring it to the masses. And if as a byproduct, we actually hang some huevos on the Republicans and remind them of what the party is supposed to stand for, so much the better.

(For those who wonder why McKinney gets a break on her sentence, I gave her two years time off for stupidity)

That reminds me:

I was watching some show on Sunday. Apparently the previous week they had been discussing whether Bill or Hill wears the pants in the family.

Some lady e-mailed in and said:

"I'm certain that Bill wears the pants as soon as Hill tells him which pair to put on."

I about died laughing. Wonder if the lady was a FReeper.

Hillary crawled to Bill on her hands and knees, and said

"Come out from under that bed, you gutless wonder!"

The both do. How often do you see Hillary in something other than one of those pants suits she wears.
