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)
