Political Slime Wars Result In Clinton Apology

Senator Hillary Clinton encountered Senator Barack Obama at a Washington D.C. airport and extended her apology for the uncalled for comments by an assistant in her campaign who implied the Illinois senator might have ben engaged in drug dealings earlier in life. Bill Shaheen, a Clinton campaign co-chairman, has said that since much of Senator Obama’s background was murky it might lead Republicans in a fall campaign to imply that he had a wayward youth that probably included drug dealings. “There are so many openings for Republican dirty tricks,. It’s hard to overcome,” he told The Washington Post. Mr. Shaheen apologized for his remarks and then resigned his position.

I really don’t know why Mr. Shaheen resigned, everyone knows that African Americans spend their youth dealing drugs just like Jewish children are youthful bankers, and Irish kids like Shaheen can’t stop guzzling down beer and whiskey in their wayward childhood. The tragedy of his comment is that he actually thought people would believe such nonsense about Obama. Of course, Senator Obama has written his life story– unlike Hillary Clinton– so, if there is anything murky in the past of politicians it most likely will come from an examination of Clinton’s background, not Obama’s youth. This silly incident merely highlights failure on the part of Hillary Clinton to offer the American people bold ideas and a vision for the future. Instead, she is focusing on trivia and, in so doing, opens the door for her campaign associates to sink into the pit of slime and innuendo in order to counter the increasingly bold campaign of Obama.

P.S. Will Mr. Shaheen now reveal the secrets yet uncovered about the childhood of Oprah Winflrey?

    George Bush has been the greatest recruiter of Islamic terrorists. There were no terrorists in Iraq until he brought them to that nation. I gather George Bush is now in the al-Qaeda Hall of Fame.

    Lacking for a strong real candidate, the Neo-Lib Democrats have run Hillary. The problem is that she has long been observed to be emotionally and intellectually deficient.

    Their clever solution is to systematically change her image; under the assumption that the American People are for the most part too simple minded to know the difference between realities and illusions.

    To make the Hillary-puppet appear to be compassionate, meticulous studies are made of the social and economic needs of various social and economic groups, such as homosexuals and low income elderly voters. To see who does the research for the emotional Hillary-puppet displays, Google: Mark Penn.

    To make the Hillary-puppet appear to be mentally superior, questions are planted and answers must be rigorously rehearsed. To see who does the research for these brilliant questions and answers, Google: Mark Penn.

    The fatal flaw is that the small group of Neo-Lib Democrat masterminds behind this Hillary-puppet Show is just not quite clever enough to successfully pull off their scam. Moral depravity and intellectual bankruptcy are their self-limiting handicaps.
