Weekend At Hillary’s

Posted in 2016 Election, Humor, Politics on September 30th, 2016

I don’t know if it’s funny, scary, or equal parts of both, but a dead Hillary “serving” as POTUS isn’t as fantastic a premise as the 1989 comedy film, Weekend at Bernie’s.

Really, going back to the late 19th century, Presidents have been hiding the medical conditions from the public. With body and voice doubles, animatronics, and modern CGI, it’s hardly implausible that the White House’s and DNC’s inner cabal couldn’t trick America into thinking that a dead Hillary was alive and well.

But hey! At least Hillary would have died as she lived – lying. 😆

Who Wore It Best?

Who Wore It Best?
Who Wore It Best?

That Iconic outfit. Who wore it best – North Korea’s Kim Jong-un, Fiction’s Dr. Evil, or Hillary Clinton?

Now normally I wouldn’t bother posting this even as a joke. Fashion sense is hardly a decent metric for determining a person’s qualification for political office. However, just like all political candidates, Hillary’s wardrobe is part of her marketing and is made up of deliberate choices intended to identify and iconify her brand. Hence, her trend to choose variations of this particular outfit does have some significance and does raise some serious questions about her and her followers.

Again, whatever Clinton wears is a deliberate, controlled choice meant to project the image she and her campaign think will resonate with her likely voters. What does it say that she chooses an outfit most associated with dictators and would-be dictators?

US Political Parties

US Political Parties
US Political Parties & Their Mascots

Yep! Just as the Democrats have their jackass and the Republicans have their elephant, the “third parties” should have mascot too… the unicorn. It’d be perfectly in keeping with the nature of such things.

Face it, nothing is more appropriate as a mascot for any of the fringe parties, i.e., anything except the Democrats and Republicans, in America than that most fantastic of the fantasy creature, the unicorn since they’ve as much chance of making a measurable difference in American politics as Kim Kardashian does of catching a unicorn.

NOTE: The above is in the context of national politics. Members of any of the various “other” parties in America can and do get elected at municipal and even occasionally state levels.

In my opinion this is fundamentally because there’s no real difference except by degrees of intensity between the parties. Libertarians are essentially just more extreme and less practical versions of Republicans and Socialists and Greens are just more extreme and less practical versions of Democrats. None of them have specific, different agendas and platforms than the “real” US political parties.

Truly! How can they be different from the “Big Two?” Every candidate at the higher levels of politics is expected to have a position and preferably policy on every issue. This means that, unlike Britain and other more parliamentary governments single issue parties can’t exist and all the parties end up coming down on one or the other sides of the fence. This makes any parties other than the Democrats and Republicans extraneous at best, and makes their success a fantasy.
