Posted on 04/12/2014 2:06:50 PM PDT by nickcarraway
Hillary Clinton is an odds-on favorite to be the next Democratic nominee for President of the United States, so when she mentioned a famous Portland doughnut shop Tuesday night, the sugar artists at Voodoo Doughnut took note.
Inspired by a famous photo of Clinton, Voodoo's staff in downtown Portland created a doughnut likeness of the former Secretary of State.
The doughnut depicts Clinton wearing sunglasses and checking her cell phone. If it looks familiar, it's because the image inspired by a whole Internet meme -- see textsfromhillaryclinton.tumblr.com.
Clinton was giving a quick preview of her speech Tuesday at the Keller Auditorium when she suggested it might be a long evening based on the wide range of topics she planned to cover. She joked she was "willing to order Voodoo Doughnuts for everybody. Those sugar highs can keep us going to breakfast."
Voodoo sent out a tweet of its Clinton doughnut the next morning and wrote, "Thanks for the shout out while in Portland!"
If you want to actually take a bite out of a Clinton doughnut, you're out of luck. Voodoo made only one doughnut at its downtown shop, and it was just for display.
Earlier this year, Voodoo paid tribute to Harold Ramis, the Ghostbusters star and comedy legend who died at the age of 69, by creating a Ghostbusters-themed doughnut. Voodoo made a number of Harold Ramis doughnuts and they sold out quickly.
For a recap of Clinton's speech in Portland, see Laura Rillos' story here.
The shape of an A-hole?
Too bad they didn’t make four more Donuts to honor the Brave Patriots that Hillary murdered in Benghazi.
I thought the deal was you order a doughnut and they pick one at random. Because what difference at this point does it make?
Could Benghazi be considered a remote gay bashing? Maybe then the victim can be recognized.
NO; (I say to her and the other liberals): “You’d done enough to ruin the country already. You don’t get a second bite at the apple after Obama!!”
Hopefully, Hillary will be the Democrat’s Bob Dole; a semi-animated corpse.
I heard somebody say that Hillary could end up being this generation’s Hubert Humphrey — someone who speaks to the liberal values of the party, who is supported by many in the mainstream of the party, but who also never ends up being elected president. I guess we’ll see...............
“If you want to actually take a bite out of a Clinton doughnut, you’re out of luck. Voodoo made only one doughnut at its downtown shop, and it was just for display.”
Oh yea, great story, breaking news. All over one stupid
defective doughnut. One thing is for sure, it isn’t cream
How could she not be elected? Unless an asteroid hits her, she’d president. George McGovern had more chance of being elected than anyone else.
It was a fustercluck. Does that count?
Instead of filled with chocolate cream, I know what it should be filled with to be a Clinton donut... wouldn’t be edible, though.
When my younger son was 12 he had a Burmese Blood Python named Hillary
“I heard somebody say that Hillary could end up being this generations Hubert Humphrey”
Please, Dear God...
I picture the Hillsbury Dough Boy.
Undoubtedly the donut is dried out and extra yeasty.
I might be too young— what’s the connection?
There, Fixed It. ™
“Hillary Clinton is an odds-on favorite to be the next Democratic nominee for President of the United States
That very statement tells me that America is over..........
“I might be too young whats the connection?”
I don’t know what the connection with the donut is. But Hubert Humphrey, Democrat and Bob Dole, Republican (sort of) were horrible candidates. Both lost and a blind man could have seen the loss coming. The hope is that Hillary is this generation’s connected politician who can work the levers to become the candidate but is so unappealing to the public that she will be another epic failure.
Hillary Clinton donut = two normal donuts joined at their holes
Got it. I hope you’re right...but I’ve lost a lot of faith in the electorate...obviously.
Ha! When I read the headline, I wondered if they wouldn’t just close that middle part a little more tightly.
Sounds like it missing the pretzel.
Classic Voodo Donut insider joke.

Does it have “hail damage”? (cellulite dimples)
Now if someone can put a pencil in her hand and push her off a stage at some lame pep rally...
Bob Dole’s great moment:
Someone just named a new doughnut after Hillary Clinton. You don`t eat it, you apply it directly to your ass.
