Advocates of an american troop pullout from Iraq say the establishment of a democratic government cannot be accomplished in that country. Hillary Clinton is one such advocate. Her cynical view of Iraq makes more sense today, since it turns out Hillary doesn't much favor democracy in america either. After all the caucuses and primaries that have been held, after millions of americans have expressed their voices at the polls, Queen Hillary The First said the following, according to a Newsmax story:
“I just don’t think this is over yet, and I don’t think that it is smart for us to take a position that might disadvantage us in November...And also remember that pledged delegates in most states are not pledged. You know, there is no requirement that anybody vote for anybody. They’re just like superdelegates."
In other words, Hillary thinks we should forget the will of the people and forget the voters - the elected delegates should just pledge themselves to her anyway, since, after all, she is the rightful heir to the throne, not that Obama fellow. I mean, Obama has never taken pretend sniper fire in Bosnia. Obama has never been deeply involved in a pretend Irish peace process. Obama doesn't have 35 years of pretend experience. How can he possibly be ready on DAY ONE like the Once And Future Queen ? What's fair is fair america. Forget that silly notion of democracy. The Clintons have. Lots of other Democrats have also. Florida and Michigan appear to be permanently disenfranchised.
In fairness, maybe the Hilldog just misspoke. There's been lots of that going around lately. Of course, two weeks earlier she said the exact same thing to Newsweek:
"Even elected and caucus delegates are not required to stay with whomever they are pledged to.”
Okay, maybe she misspoke twice. It's been a long campaign. Clinton campaign advisor Harold Ickes attempted to clarify Hillary's remarks, by SAYING THE EXACT SAME THING:
“I think what Mrs. Clinton was trying to make clear was that no delegate is required by party rules to vote for the candidate for which they're pledged,” said Ickes. “I mean obviously circumstances can change, and people's minds can change about the viability of a particular candidate and that's permitted now under our rules ever since the 1980 convention.”
Thanks for clearing that up, Harold. Let's turn the country into a banana republic.
Since the country is having economic problems, probably the wisest course of action would be to just install Hillary as the president, and forget the rest of the primaries and the general election. That way, we can dispense with all this unnecessary debate and voting nonsense, and get about the business of 'fixing' america [similar to the way you 'fix' a sporting event]. I'm certain Hillary and Bill would agree.
Every time I think I've heard it all, I'm proven wrong.
I can't wait to hear the left wingers argue with me on this one.
