D.C. Chapter's 'Halloween' FReep at Madame Hillary's Carl McCall Fundraiser 10/30/02
Wednesday, October 30, 2002 | Kristinn

Posted on 10/30/2002 8:19:49 PM PST by kristinn

Cold. Heavy mist. Funereal.

Members of the D.C. Chapter of Free Republic gathered tonight to pay our (dis)respects to the demise of the the political fortunes of the friends of Bill and Hillary Clinton at a fundraiser hosted by Senator Clinton for the doomed Democratic candidate for governor of New York, Carl McCall.

Fighting our way through rush hour traffic, tgslTakoma, daughter of tgsl and I arrived on site a few minutes before 6 p.m. Driving up Whitehaven Street (the scene of the crime) we saw lots of open parking spaces. We could see Madame Hillary's was open for business, but, as usual the customers were to be received in the rear of the establishment.

In keeping with the season, two pumpkins adorned the entrance. They must have just been put out that evening because neither one had been kicked in yet by the Clintons' backyard neighbors the Cheneys.

Six Metropolitan Police department cruisers and a squad of motorcycle officers parked at the Massachusetts Avenue end of the street stood ready to greet us as we parked and got our protest signs out. We told the officers that we were there to protest Senator Clinton's fundraiser for Carl McCall and they informed us that's why they were here too and chastised us for being late (our permit application stated we would start at 5:30 p.m.)

I looked around at all the officers and told them that because of the lousy weather there were more of them than there would be of us. One of them asked if we planned on getting arrested. As soon as I mentioned we were from the D.C. Chapter of Free Republic he said we were alright.

We were soon joined by Jimmy Valentine's brother and SpacemanSpiff, both in costume--JVb as Hillary's queen-maker, Olde Scratch and Spaceman Spiff as, well, Spaceman Spiff!

Daughter of tgsl started out wearing a witch costume and then, before you could say Cher Sarkesian Bono Allman, she changed into a faceless demon outfit to match her mother's costume.

tgslTakoma has embarked on a new career: tombstone carver. Her handiwork was put on display tonight as she set up headstones for the Clintons' Political Graveyard.

Memorialized were the political careers of former Clinton acolytes Al Gore, Janet Reno, Robert Reich, and Carl McCall, along with a reserved space for the presidential ambitions of Ms. Hillary, herself.

Traffic turning onto Whitehaven Street was lighter than normal for a Hillary! soiree. No catering trucks were seen. Perhaps a witch's brew, instead of the usual Ritz Crackers and Cheez Whiz, was being served by the reincarnation of Pamela Harriman tonight.

Following on the heels of the Paul Wellstone Plane Crash Jamboree in Minnesota last night, it's understandable that the 'Rats were partied-out.

We wrapped it up around 7:30, just as Cardinal4 arrived. We retired to tgslTakoma's vehicle and talked for awhile as the few customers of Madame Hillary's drove past us as they left the wake for Carl McCall's gubernatorial bid.

I kept it to myself, but as we saw Terry McAuliffe leave in his gas-guzzling DNC Cadillac Escalade, I saw a headless horseman in hot pursuit.

BOO!

Daughteroftgsl blends into the darkness that fell over Whitehaven Street this cold and rainy night.

Spaceman Spiff on alien soil, trying to call back the lost souls.

The Clintons' political graveyard is growing. Being a FOB isn't what they thought it would be.

(l. to r.) Kristinn, Jimmy Valentine's brother, cardinal4, daughteroftgsl.

Kristinn working the graveyard shift at Hill House.

Here lie the political aspirations of people who made their own deals with the Devil (aka ex42, Bubba, liar-in-chief.

Nightmare on White(witch)haven Street.

A spaceman (spiffy), the Grim Reaper x 2, and Satan's brother pace the graveyard of lost souls.

The original of the sign that got BufordP into so much trouble a few weeks ago was brought out again tonight.

Don't worry, we are all wearing garlic around our necks! Kristinn couldn't find silver stakes, so we had to make do tonight with candy corn-filled pumpkin-head stakes. Hey! They might not kill a werewolf or a vampire, but we can eat them for the energy needed to shiver in the cold and rain tonight!

Ask Kristinn if the heater worked well in the new FReepermobile.

(hint: It's been nearly 3 years since I had a vehicle with a working heater. I made up for all those cold commutes tonight.)

Great write-up, Kristinn - you da man! Excellent FReeping efforts, DC Chapter!

I looked around at all the officers and told them that because of the lousy weather there were more of them than there would be of us. One of them asked if we planned on getting arrested. As soon as I mentioned we were from the D.C. Chapter of Free Republic he said we were alright.

This is very telling, in a very good way.

Another freep of Hillary? Ya'll must be on really friendly terms by now--Lol!

It's always so much fun to read of the DC Chapter's freeps, and Kristinn, you are such a good writer! Keep up the good work, as many of us wish we could be there to join you each time you go out. This is the next best thing.

One question then a request.....

How many people did you see entering Madame Hillary's House?

Do you have a picture of Limousine, er, SUV-Liberal, Terry McAwful's gas-guzzling Escalade to post here on this thread?

Excelent report, FReep, signs, costumes, props, the works!

Many thanks, DC FReepers!

P.S. Wish the Hog Wild FReepers luck on our FReep of X-42 this Sunday. Ideas from fertile minds for signs would be appreciated!

You DC Freepers are just too much!!! How fun and cathartic it must be to ridicule Queen of the Damned in her own neighborhood. I loved the graveyard and the the "Faustian Bargain" Devil (still ROTFLOLing...)

What a GREAT way to celebrate Halloween!!

daughteroftgsl is a real trooper. Her mother drags her to all these events yet she earns no school credits in "Civics" for execising 2nd Ammendment rights. In Maryland students are required to perform "voluntary" community service in order to earn a high school diploma.

Clinton is coming to Pine Bluff in a repeat of last elections Sunday rally to get out the RATS vote. Two years ago they opened the courthouse and bussed people in to vote on a Sunday! That was how Jay Dickey (R) lost the election to Mike Ross (D) by a little over 500 votes.

We are looking for a repeat performance this Sunday!

Check this link and especially the link in post 4 for more information.

I'm glad you referred to her as Madame Hillary.

It was and is inappropriate to refer to Hillary as a former First Lady, simply because Hitlery is no lady.

However, Hillary was Madame of the Clinton White House of Ill Repute.

"It was and is inappropriate to refer to Hillary as a former First Lady"

Actually, one should respect the presidency even if not the occupants, and under diplomatic protocol, she gets that title. I know that's not your point, but that would be mine. For political parody, "Madame Hilary" is just fine. But I don't begrudge her the title. Just like Ed Meese, although no longer attorney general, is still referred to as "General Meese" in diplomatic contexts.

OK, sorry, that was horribly pendantic. My main point remains:

GOOD WORK!

Cecil B. deMille didn't do any better or as spell binding a job when he produced "The Ten Commandments"!

Thanks from the hinterland of Conservatism!

Not only are you real Americans but you have a knack of pushing the right buttons that releases a very warm feeling of satisfaction that we are being heard in the dark recesses of unGodly Liberalism throughout this great land!

Our Father thank you that we are accepted in the Beloved and that in the End, We Win!!

May God continue to bless America!

So wish I could have been part of "The Haunting at Hill House"!! (busy with the Forrester campaign) JVB makes quite a fine, distinguished Count Dracula, but would he really want to sip on Hill? (spitooey!)

Wonder what it would be like for trick 'n treaters at Hill House tonight? I bet neighborhood kids avoid her house.

Save me a space on Witchhaven, next time.

kristinn, my friend,

It can seldom be said of men as young as you, whippersnapper that thou art, but this is true of you. You have already more than justified the time and space the Good Lord has given you on this Earth by your energy, intelligence and courage dedicated to your fellows. I know there's much more to come.

But I want to thank you -- and all the other D.C. Chapter stalwarts -- for your efforts, both on this rainy night, and all the other days and nights before now, and yet to come.
