    GOOGLE " Hillary Clinton's pantsuits" and the thousands of pages that come up are an amalgamation of gentle mockery, a modicum of flattery and all-out derision. Punch line and rallying cry, those suits have been seared into the public consciousness. (Who can forget the bright tangerine number the former presidential candidate wore on the opening day of the Democratic National Convention last month?) But lost in the clamor was the designer. Turns out that many of Clinton's signature campaign suits were stitched on the first floor of a boutique in the heart of Beverly Hills by Susanna Chung Forest, who...

    BROOKVILLE, N.Y., May 14 — Backing away from her assertion that the current generation is lazy, Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton said on Sunday that she simply wanted to "set the bar high" when she told an audience last week that young people today "think work is a four-letter word." Mrs. Clinton said her daughter, Chelsea, called to complain after learning about her remarks at a gathering of the United States Chamber of Commerce in Washington on Thursday. In that speech, Mrs. Clinton criticized young people for having a sense of entitlement after growing up in a "culture that has a...

    "I have in the past certainly, you know maybe, called somebody a name. But I have never used an ethnic, racial, anti-Semitic, bigoted, discriminatory, prejudiced, accusation against anybody. I've never done it. I've never thought it." That is what Hillary Clinton said in July 2000, after the release of the book "State of a Union: Inside the Complex Marriage of Bill and Hillary Clinton" Among the details it contained was Hillary calling the campaign manager of Bill's 1974 Congressional Race a "f--king Jew Bastard." Hillary, who was running for the Senate at the time, also said about the book, "I...

    First and foremost, I think it is inappropriate that detractors of Hillary Clinton's should make fun of her personal appearance and/or afflictions (though they are many). More attention should be paid to the issues surrounding Hillary and her personal agenda rather than her appearance...bovine at best. Currently Hillary has earned the dubious award of the "Yellow Streak". This is awarded only to cowards. I have seen all the postings that might possibly explain her silence. I would like to interject my own. I believe Hillary could not speak and express her views on local, state and national events simply because...

    Marin County CA, home of Ratboy Johnny Jihad and other forms of leftist lunacy, was the site of yet another FReep of Shrillery Rotten Clinton on her book tour. Of course, being in such a liberal area, her visit promted the swarm of Klinton Kool-Aid Drinkers and other assorted sheeple to come out for an autographed copy of her book. Freeper Honor Roll: stratman1969 and wife, byteback, Mediaqueen, SFChick and old mare. In addition, we had four other people with us there (if any of you are FReepers and I missed your screen name, my apologies.) We stood across the...

    Henry Wojtaszek is probably the only GOP candidate from the Niagara region in recent years who unabashedly plays to the party's conservative heartbeat. He is plainly pro-life, pro-gun and anti-tax. WASHINGTON - Results of recent special and primary elections, some of them obscure, could lift the campaign prospects of Henry F. Wojtaszek from the category of "improbable" to "to be determined." Henry who? Henry F. Wojtaszek, 39, (pronounced wo-TA-sek) is the Republican candidate picked to unseat powerful Democratic congressional incumbent Louise M. Slaughter of the Rochester suburb of Fairport.

    <p>August 16, 2002 -- I INTENDED to get out of the political-prognostication business after my prediction that John McCain would be the GOP presidential nominee in 2000 made me look like an idiot. But, as Al Pacino said in "Godfather 3," every time I try to get out, they pull me back in. Indeed, it was my own idiocy in 2000 that informs this totally, maybe even absurdly, confident prediction.</p>

    By The Prowler Published 8/13/02 12:04:00 AM IT'S GOING TO BE A LONG, LONELY SCHUMER Sen. Hillary Clinton may still be trying to figure out what to do with the New York Democratic gubernatorial primary, but it's certain what she wants to do to her colleague Sen. Chuck Schumer. "It's not printable," says a Clinton Hill aide. Her anger at Schumer, greater than it usually is for the publicity hungry pol, is the result of his decision to endorse New York state comptroller Carl McCall over former Clinton administration official Andrew Cuomo for the Democratic nomination to challenge Republican Gov....

    "PANTSUIT IN THE WIND"Tune: "Candle in the Wind" Hello, Crusty Queen, Though you never cleaned it at all, You had the guts to wear your suit While those around you crawled. They crawled out of the odor And they kept on holding their nose, They shouted from a distance And they begged you, "Change your clothes." And it seems to me you wore your clothes Like a pantsuit in the wind, Never knowing what to change to When the stains set in. And I would have liked to have worn one, But it would make me ill. Your perfume wore...

    CRUSTY THE PANTSUIT(To the tune of "Frosty the Snowman") Crusty the pantsuit Was like clothes that you'd discard, With a sweat-stained top And a stretched-out butt And two legs that smelled like lard. Crusty the pantsuit Was pulled out most ev'ry day. As she put it on, Hilly sang this song: "Black is slimming, so they say." She must have bought the pantsuit from A wizard or an elf, For when she took it off at night, It stood up all by itself! Oh . . . Crusty the pantsuit Was a fashion felony, But the Freepers say, "We can...
