Three cheers for 'terrible news' ... (Hillary exercises a damsel's right to change her mind)

Ah, there's bad news this morning. Well, bad news for the Democrats. The news for the country is actually pretty good, but we have to remember whose side we're on.

This assessment of Democratic prospects seems harsh, but don't take my word for it. Here's Frank Rich, the distinguished columnist for the New York Times, dealing despair and the prospect of doom for his side:

"When President Bush started making noises about World War III, he only confirmed what has been a Democratic article of faith all year: Between now and Election Day he and Dick Cheney, cheered on by the mob of neo-con dead-enders, are going to bomb Iran.

"But what happens if President Bush does not bomb Iran? That is good news for the world, but potentially terrible news for the Democrats. If we do go to war in Iran, the election will indeed be a referendum on the results. ... But if we don't, the Democratic standard-bearer will have to take a clear stand on the defining issue of the race. As we saw once again at [the recent] debate, the front-runner, Hillary Clinton, does not have one."

That's not quite right. Hillary has a very clear stand on the war in Afghanistan/Iraq/Iran. It's identical to her stand on Social Security reform, health care, religion, politics, driver's licenses for illegals, global warming and, when it becomes fashionable again, global cooling. Hillary's for the national interest when those interests coincide with hers, and for Democrats (if it works out that way). First, she's foursquare for Hillary. Her bobbing, weaving, evading and trimming to slide through tiny loopholes that only she would attempt to slip through makes perfect sense.

The more I hear about the candidates the more I loathe political opportunism from them. I like Fred Thompson more and more, if only because I believe that HE believes what he is saying.

An articulate person does not generally get “crossed up” when talking about something they are passionate and knowledgeable about....unless they are being other than completely honest and straight forward about it. I do quite a bit of negotiating day to day. Knowing your position and sticking to it is a respectable trait. Changing you mind when necessary can be honorable if facts change or become better understood.

Grandstanding and parroting BS is like telling dirty jokes. You have to be careful about the audience, remember the punch lines, and change the subjects of the joke around if the audience may be offended. The joke keeps changing and it always sucks.

Once you get Hillary (or any goofy liberal) off script and absorbed in factual debate, they fold like a chair. They melt, faint, go into mindless babble. They slobber on themselves and get sweaty arm pits. Then the wine. Finally, they foam at the mouth, bare their teeth and get angry. After that passes, they retreat to privacy, blankey and Cabbage Patch Kid for a good wholesome thumb sucking, feel sorry for me, pity party.

Al Gore and Bill and Hillary Clinton go to heaven, and God addresses Al
first. ‘’Al, what do you believe in?’’

Al replies: ‘Well, I believe that I won that election, but that it was your
will that I did not serve. And I’ve come to understand that now.’’

God thinks for a second and says: ‘Very good. Come and sit at my left.’’

God then addresses Bill. ‘Bill, what do you believe in?’’

Bill Replies: ‘I believe in forgiveness. I’ve sinned, but I’ve never held a
grudge against my fellow man. And I hope no grudges are held against me.’’

God thinks for a second and says: ‘You are forgiven, my son. Come and sit at my right.’’

Then God addresses Hillary. ‘Hillary, what do you believe in?’’

She replies: ‘I believe you’re in my chair.’

Senator Hillary Clinton (D-NY) and former Attorney General Janet Reno were
having one of those girl-to-girl talks, and Hillary says to Janet, “You’re
lucky that you don’t have to put up with men having sex with you. I have to
put up with Bill, and there is no telling where he was last.”

Janet responded, “Just because I am aesthetically challenged (that’s
politically correct” (for ugly as a mud fence) “does not mean I don’t have
to fight off unwelcome sexual advances.”
Hillary asks, “Well, how do you deal with the problem?”

Janet: “Whenever I feel that a guy is getting ready to make a pass at me. I
muster all my might, tense, and squeeze to break wind as loud and hard as I

That night, Bill was already in bed with the lights out when Hillary slips
in to bed. She could hear him start to stir, and knew that he would be
wanting some action. She had been saving gas all day long and was ready for
him. She tenses up her butt cheeks and forces out the most disgusting sound
you could ever imagine.
Bill rolls over and says, “Janet, is that you?”
