Parade-goers in Scranton Adore Hillary: "Girls Screamed like when the Beatles Arrived"
The Times-Tribune ^ | 3/16/08 | BORYS KRAWCZENIUK

Posted on 03/21/2008 6:04:04 AM PDT by Dr. Scarpetta

A crowd that organizers said was the largest in the parade’s 47-year history jammed downtown streets to greet Sen. Hillary Clinton, who returned to Scranton Saturday for the second time in five days, again to adoration.

“Hillary, Hillary, Hillary,” the people who filled downtown sidewalks frequently chanted.

As Mrs. Clinton walked, dozens of people constantly rushed ahead on adjacent sidewalks to get as close to her as possible. Girls screamed like when the Beatles arrived in the United States.

“I’ve never seen anything like it,” said parade day coordinator James “Bambi” Coyle, who’s been involved with parade planning for 20 years.

“You can’t believe the support you have here,” one woman yelled. “I love you,” Tara Meredick, 34, of Taylor, shouted before snapping Mrs. Clinton’s picture as the candidate paused. “I love you, too,” Mrs. Clinton replied.

“Mom, I just shook Hillary Clinton’s hand,” one girl shouted.

Gag! How many of the screamers are paid plants to try to get the same buzz as St. Barack gets from the press. I expect trained fainters to show up any minute. Maybe someone could even have a full blow seizure in a Hillary frenzy.

From what I’ve seen the Scranton women can relate to Hillary. Something about a double wide and cankles that just make them seem so familiar with her.

So we're back to the adoring crowds for Her Heinous stories. Didn't have too many of them when people were fainting for Obama.

The MSM don't care which RAT gets in so long as it's a RAT in the White House.

What does a “rent-a-mob” go for these days? Did Hillary’s “screaming fans” get free lunch and free transportation to the parade?

Wow it brings back memories of my own wonderful time at a Hillary parade. Hard to believe that was eight years ago, before she had been elected to anything.

“Mom, I just shook Hillary Clinton’s hand,” one girl shouted.

"Don't worry, honey," her mom replied. "I've got some Lysol wipes with me and a bottle of bleach in the car."

Obamalama's still ahead of Hilldog. When he's around people swoon and cry.

I wish someone in the press had the guts to ask Hillary what happened to those 200,000 new jobs she promised she'd bring to upstate NY, instead of the net 16,000 job loss they've had. Last time out she blamed it on Bush. Wonder if that tune has changed?

Anyone still think Hellary will be easier to beat than Obama? Anyone? Those of us who were berated for opposing the idiotic ill-conceived and disasterous “Rush the Vote” are waiting for an apology.

So the choice for presidency is determined by people who are not using their intelligence, but their emotions.

First of all, how the hell would BORYS KRAWCZENIUK know? Does BORYS know exactly how people reacted to the Beatles?

Second, how about carrying the analogy all the way? Children screaming like idiots at pop culture stars are about as shallow as it gets. So let's make sure we keep that perspective.

Thirdly, since this happened in Scranton, I'd like to know what Dwight Schrute thought of the whole ordeal.

It got to the point where I started thinking to myself that some SS guy was probably going to shoot me, so I would quickly turn and yell "You should be in prison!" because I wanted to get in a good taunt before my bullet riddled body hit the pavement.

LOL! Great job, dead! LOL!

what is it with liberals and their inability to control their emotions?

is being near their politician as close as they can come to a religious experience?
