Hillary's D.C. Fundraiser Flops -- Op. Infinite FReep Report 11/08/01
self | November 8, 2001 | Kristinn

Posted on 11/08/2001 8:35:07 PM PST by kristinn

Senator Hillary Clinton ('Rat-NY) held a sparsely attended political fundraiser at her Washington, D.C. Embassy Row mansion this evening. The dozen-or-so anti-Hillary protesters who gathered at the entrance to her street almost out-numbered those who came to pay homage to the former first lady and her political agenda.

One of the protesters walked up the road at 6:45 p.m. and observed the affair from across the street. What she saw shocked her; there was hardly anyone at Hillary's fundraiser. Around one hundred name tags were laid out on a table on the driveway in front of the house under a party tent. But only a few people could be seen milling about--and most of them were staff and waiters. In fifteen minutes, only one guest was seen arriving.

No media was seen there. The lackluster scene was in stark contrast to the expectation earlier this year that Hillary would take the place of the late Pamela Harriman as the Democrats' salon hostess-with the-mostest in D.C. after she held her wildly successful first fundraiser in April for freshman Senator Maria Cantwell ('Rat-Wa).

Things have gone south so fast for Hillary that one staffer was heard to say tonight, "This always happens. We send out alot of invitations, and just a few (people) show up."

An hour later, when the affair was in full swing, a second recon was done. A couple dozen name tags were gone from the table, but a steady stream of people were seen leaving Hillary's mansion in the ten minutes the recon team was there.

When the door opened for the guests to leave, the recon team observed that there were no party sounds emanating from Hillary's mansion. In fact, it appeared that the guests were not bade farewell by anyone at the door when they left.

Another thing the recon team noticed was that the fundraising staff had instructed the partygoers to park their cars inside the Danish Embassy's property directly across the street, which they did.

I'm not sure, but it seems that a foriegn government was providing an in-kind contribution to Hillary's fundraiser.

The party ended around 8:30 p.m. The departing guests who saw the anti-Hillary protesters as they drove away gave mixed reactions to them. Some called out their support for Hillary, while others swore at the protesters.

One woman, an elegant, fiftyish looking blonde beauty, leaned over to the protesters as she was chauffered past them and angrily jabbed her middle finger at them from behind the rear seat window of her sedan. It was sad to see such a lack of class from one of Hillary's upper class political sorority sisters, but not surprising.

President Bush gave a televised speech to the nation while the fundraiser was going on. Perhaps that contributed to the sour mood of some of Hillary's guests. One can only surmise how Her Heinous reacted to the speech; but judging from her disrespectful demeanor during his speech to a joint session of Congress last month, she was probably saying things like, "Yeah, George, let's roll--right over the rights of women, minorities and children."

The Honor Roll for tonight: Angelwood, Marylander, Doctor Raoul, Gore_War_Vet, BufordP, Jimmy Valentine's brother, NoDemocratsIn2000, sauropod, tgslTakoma, staytrue, The Glaswegian (+2) and kristinn.

Maybe Bill should keep talking about how we deserve to be attacked. I'm sure that will help Hitlery's chances in 2004 or 8.

Keep it up guys! Great job. I love the covert stuff.

If you know anyone in the government, maybe you can query the FEC about that embassy allowing the party-goers to use its parking lot.

Probably.

A couple weeks ago, the camo was definitely what the fashionable FReeper was wearing. And face paint too.

Thanks for the report. This is too good to be true. We've waited so long (and the DC chapter has braved the elements so long). They are losing power by the hour. Rats have zero loyality to losers. And from the cops booing Hillary to Green's defeat to Bill's drunken speech, it must becoming clear to their sycophants that the Clintons are, finally, losers.

Sounds like a dreary party and that's GOOD news. Thanks for your efforts. I wonder if the lucky contributors were allowed into her heinous' living room this time - LOL.

I really don't think this rates a big deal. OTOH if the situation were reversed, demonrats would have no second thoughts about raising h&ll over some technical violation of law, if just to get a negative press story or two. That's the trouble with us members of the VRWC. We just aren't big enough a&&h%les to play the demonrats game by their rules.

Do you want my analysis as to why nobody showed up? There is really a simple explanation.

"This always happens. We send out alot of invitations, and just a few (people) show up."

I would've shown up. Free booze and food, why not? I'd eat, drink and leave without talking to anyone.

But of course, I'm just one of the Little People, so I never get invited.

I guess my question is, does she use these fundraisers as a way to launder money from OTHER sources? In which case it wouldn't matter how many people actually showed up.

You guys did a great job! Congratulations! It must've been almost disappointing to see so few guests there. Sounds like even less happened inside than outside. You guys were probably the attractiuon for the few that came! "Hey! Let's go to Hillary's! I hear we'll be FReeped! I've never had that happen to me yet..."

But, comparing Bill and Hillary's separate attempts at fund-rasing, it sounds like Bill is the party guest everyone wants to invite and Hillary is the hostess who doesn't know how to throw a proper party. (Well, neither do I. But I'm not a US Senator, either!) Hillary must have made a lot of enemies in the Senate very quickly to have fallen so fast.

"I guess the Chinese delagation was afraid to fly in!"

The Chinese? Naaaaaaaahhhhhhhh..............they used the Clintons like a cheap Kleenex; tossed 'em aside when they were no longer of any use. Gee. What a shocker, eh? :) Yep, these Arkansas twits sold out their country and have absolutely NOTHING to show for it. Yessir, guess they sure know how to drive a hard bargain in Little Rock / Harlem............yep yep yep.............

What in the world was Hillary having a fundraiser for? If it was for herself, she's not up for reelection for another FIVE YEARS!

So, no one wants to know the real reason no one goes to Hillary's place for fundraisers or social functions?

A fundraiser? Let's see in the past 18 months the stockmarket has lost about 5 trillion dollars. Everybodies Mutual Fund is in the red for the year. Major League Baseball wants to dump 2 teams (which means the minor league teams they support). Everybody is asking for a government bailout. The world is in a recession. Who knows when WWIII will be over. Leave it to Hillary to sponsor a Fundraiser and expect a crowd to attend. DUH!
