Hillary’s Choice

Posted By on Wed, Aug 5, 2015 at 4:35 PM

It was if the Secrets of the Universe had suddenly been revealed to me one night this week, when I heard a television talking head express the opinion that Hillary Clinton had made a wise decision “ . . . by deciding to run as a woman in 2016.”

Because, like, so many choices are open to her . . . this being America and all.

She could have run as a man, I suppose.

Or a Dalek.

A Klingon battlecruiser.

A duck-billed platypus.

Or, if she got really bored, a television talking head.

Ah, America! We really are the land where all things are possible . . .

Quote of the Day

There are those in our country today, too, who speak of the "protection" of the country. Of "survival". The answer to that is: *survival as what? A country isn't a rock. And it isn't an extension of one's self. It's what it stands for, when standing for something is the most difficult! Before the people of the world - let it now be noted in our decision here that this is what we stand for: justice, truth... and the value of a single human being! - Judge Dan Haywood: Judgment at Nuremberg (1961)

  • Sex on campus

    Look, the Great Campus Rape Crisis was mainly hype all along. What Vice President Joe Biden described as an epidemic of sexual violence sweeping American college campuses in 2011 was vastly overstated.
