Skip to comments.Clinton Clings to Wonky Self (massive spew chunks alert)

SAN FRANCISCO Senator Hillary Rodham Clintons big fundraiser here got off to a great start on Friday night. And then, well, the air went a bit out of the balloon.
Kicking off the party at the Orpheum Theater was Sam Malone, a.k.a. Ted Danson, the Cheers actor, who introduced Mrs. Clinton with the sort of adjectives that dazzled Diane Chambers, Rebecca Howe, and umpteen other ladies of Boston.
Warm, wonderful, beautiful, and intelligent, Mr. Danson said of the candidate who, dare I say, from the mezzanine of the theater, was radiant in full blush and wide smile.
After weeks of exhausting campaigning, where she has stayed healthy as so many reporters and aides fell ill, it was a sweet tribute for Mrs. Clinton.
Mr. Dansons wife, the actress Mary Steenburgen, an old friend of the Clintons from Arkansas, also laid on the love.
She is more amazing than you think she is, more brilliant, she has more of a sense of humor about life and herself, Ms. Steenburgen said.
Her belly laugh is more raucous and dirty than mine, which is saying something, she added. She is even more human she does get tired and sad and hurt, but she is more able to pick herself up and dust herself off than anyone I know.

Get some TP and clean that sh*t off your face, Mary.
Let's hope it never splits the pantsuit.

The 2006 Second Annual Left Behinds Hottest Gay Journalist In New York Awards
This New York Times political reporter won me over the first time he traded barbs with some right-wing nutjob on NY1’s Inside City Hall. He’s like the hotter, smarter Ben Affleck. Oh, and he kind of always looks like he partied too hard the night before, yet is reliably clever.
And meanwhile, Bill clings to his wanky...self.
One more pair for the testicle lockbox, I believe.
It’s always amusing to read what leftists think are compliments...
You can do that when you’re a Democrat and it won’t be held against you. Hell, you can even be a former member of the KKK and use the “N” word and it won’t be held against you.
Laughs to tears for Bubba, hope that may continue!
Good posting devolve.

A little update on a popular oldie
Yes, looks like you were able to get two frames out of the little video looking slideshow!
Amazing how much lighter my laptop shows things, but then the color isn’t as intense on other things either.
And then came Mrs. Clintons stump speech. And, oh boy, even though it was a Friday night in San Francisco at the beautiful Orpheum, Mrs. Clinton once again showed one of her deficits as a candidate: She simply has trouble pulling off a great rally.
No matter the setting, Mrs. Clinton treats nearly every campaign event as a wonk-filled town hall meeting. Rather than whip up the crowd by tossing brickbats at President Bush; rather than tell funny stories or show the sides of herself that Mr. Danson and Ms. Steenburgen hailed; rather than try to deliver her best stemwinder Mrs. Clinton instead sunk into the weeds of her policy ideas, laying out her plans for tax credits and health care and education reform.
A full minute or two would go by without applause.
Thanks for the ping!
