WRITTEN IN STONE 2: the clintons define the clintons

WRITTEN IN STONE: AN ARCHITECT DEFINES THE CLINTONS

 

by Mia T, 12-30-02

 

If mutability of meaning was necessary for the survival of the clintons--their survival hinged ultimately on the deconstruction of words and laws--it is more than a little ironic, and a manifestation of the special sway and shortsightedness of the pathologic ego, that clinton's monument to himself will necessarily define the clintons with the permanance of great inviolate places of iconic architecture.

Whereas a huckster removes meaning from institutions --the wife picked up where the husband left off--an architect encodes meaning in buildings. James S. Polshek, the architect with the dubious distinction of having been commissioned to build the William J. Clinton Presidential Center in Little Rock, Arkansas, believes that a successful architectural solution must necessarily be rooted in relevance.

Just as Polshek's buildings have physical layers, so too do they have layers of meaning. His Rose Center for Earth and Space, for example, is informed formally and programmatically by the historic architecture of a designated landmark even as it redefines itself, (often too self-consciously, in my view), in Star-Trekian terms. Reduced to its essence, the building is the nascent universe before the Big Bang, the promise of the undifferentiated cell in its mother's womb.

The "bridge to the 21st century" was, perhaps, clinton's most delusional conceit, so it is not surprising that it would become clinton's self-referential metaphor of choice. His library was to be that bridge, if he had anything to say about it...

The architect is often the master of the inside joke, witness Robert Venturi's postmodern chairs. Venturi exploited--unabashedly and with abandon--the vocabulary of Las Vegas, its stage-set-as-reality and its roadside culture--bright, clashing, ugly and fake. The architect's inside joke is his hedge against the sycophancy that comes with patronage.

The flip side of the encoded meaning of the architect is the terrorist's decoding of it. To bin Laden, the World Trade Center was Jewish capitalism encoded in urban space. If Polshek's vision of clinton's library is a bridge, the inside joke is that, at best, it is a bridge to nowhere.

More likely, it is a bridge to the 7th century...or a doublewide to house clinton double-speak. Take your choice.

Democratic Party's Problem Transcends Its Anti-War Contingent

If Act I was a thinly veiled allegory about naked clintonism, then Act II is a parable about the plan for world domination by the Establishment, aged hippies in pinstripes all, with their infantile, solipsistic world view amazingly untouched by time.

 

Mia T, THE ALIENS

 

Al From is sounding the alarm. "Unless we convince Americans that Democrats are strong on national security," he warns his party, "Democrats will continue to lose elections."

Helloooo? That the Democrats have to be spoon-fed what should be axiomatic post-9/11 is, in and of itself, incontrovertible proof that From's advice is insufficient to solve their problem.

From's failure to fully lay out the nature of the Democrats' problem is not surprising: he is the guy who helped seal his party's fate. It was his Democratic Leadership Council (DLC) that institutionalized the proximate cause of the problem, clintonism, and legitimized its two eponymic provincial operators on the national stage. The "Third Way" and "triangulation" don't come from the same Latin root for no reason.

That "convince" is From's operative word underscores the Democrats' dilemma. Nine-eleven was transformative. It is no longer sufficient merely to convince. One must demonstrate, demonstrate convincingly, if you will… which means both in real time and historically.

When it comes to national security, Americans will no longer take any chances. Turning the turn of phrase back on itself, the era of the Placebo President is over. (Incidentally, the oft-quote out-of-context sentence fragment alluded to here transformed meaningless clinton triangulation into a meaningful if deceptive soundbite.)

Although From is loath to admit it -- the terror in his eyes belies his facile solution -- the Democratic party's problem transcends its anti-war contingent.

With a philosophy that relinquishes our national sovereignty -- and relinquishes it reflexively… and to the UN no less -- the Democratic party is, by definition, the party of national insecurity.

With policy ruled by pathologic self-interest -- witness the "Lieberman Paradigm," Kerry's "regime change" bon mot (gone bad), Edwards' and the clintons' brazen echoes thereof (or, alternatively, Pelosi's less strident wartime non-putdown putdown)… and, of course, the clincher -- eight years of the clintons' infantilism, grotesquerie and utter failure -- the Democratic party is, historically and in real time, the party of national insecurity.

The Democrats used to be able to wallpaper their national insecurity with dollars and demogoguery. But that was before 9/11.

I'll bet that Mr. Bedard is a member of "one of those groups" so "obsessed" with voting in -- and having access to -- the clintons that they--ooops-- failed to notice the obvious danger of the lovely couple.
 
Thanx for 9/11, Paul...

THE BLACK LANDMARK THE CLINTON LIEBRARY RAZED

You think I’m kidding?
They really did tear that down.
Click here.

Excerpt:

Who is to blame when a historic landmark is lost? Part of the blame belongs to a throw-away society that places little premium on historical structures. Some of the blame must accrue to preservationists and historians who failed to recognize the significance of this structure hidden within May Supply Company. Most of the blame, however, must go to the Clinton Library Foundation and the City of Little Rock, neither of whom showed any evidence of a good faith effort to evaluate various options for keeping the station or moving a smaller representative section to a nearby site. One must also wonder why Clinton library site engineers failed to call attention to this historical building during the early stages of the library design. Site engineers had conducted exhaustive surveys of the area, surveys which had given them access to this building while it was cocooned within other structures and effectively hidden from the public. Were the survey engineers incapable of recognizing an unquestionably historic structure, or was their silence a deliberate calculated effort to conceal details of a landmark which they considered expendible?

...T'was a real pleasure watching SUSAN ESTRICH (Did I actually say that?)..

...telling her Friends the CLINTONS to get out of the Democrat Party's Face last night on FoX's ..'HANNITY -&- COLMES'..Political Interview TV Show.

...Especially after their trying to equate BILL CLINTON's womanizing and cocaine sniffing with JFK's in this week's new Bimbo Eruptions from the 1960's.


NEVER FORGET that...
...SAM DONALDSON predicted over the Weekend that HILLARY will announce for the 2004 Presidential Race this Fall if she perceives a BUSH weakness.

...For HILLARY that BUSH weakness is already being seen as simply herself not sitting in the Oval Office as we speak.

Post the thing everywhere. Post it in venues that archive.

I will do my part and create all manner of bloggery on the original piece as well as on the spiking.

The Ds didn't have to be told this, BTW. They know. Doubtless, talks of coup dominate D circles... and squares. clinton antipathy does extend leftward.

All the fuss over the spread-eagle pose and the tie pointing to nothing much.

I think the great untold story of that photo is the scary fisheye distortion of the rapist's hands (which only underscores the smallness of the rest of him)...

It is as though the photographer was saying, "You small -----. I believe Juanita."

 

GORE ON CLINTON RAPES-THE VIDEO
YOO-HOO missus clinton:
THE CLINTON RAPES ARE
"UNBECOMING"


Aside: Isn't it interesting how the clintons, how this "brilliant man" and this "smart" woman (as Estrich is wont to describe them these days) -- "the smartest woman in the world" in the clinton version always careful not to preclude the possibility of smarter men) -- isn't it interesting how these two veritable geniuses never fail to fall for the artiste's inside joke?
