Unless you've had your head buried under some rock the past 8 months, you know that Hilary Clinton has decided she is man enough to run this country. Now before anyone starts gnawing my head off for that comment, I will say this: I have nothing against a woman running this country...so long as she is not some pansy who will bend and bow to every whiny spoiled rotten American. But Clinton, like her dear lying husband, has all areas covered...and with that, probably has the election in a bag tied with rainbow ribbons.
For instance, she appeals to the feminist. Her election *her victory!* is their salvation.
That said, I get this weekly paper from the small town up the road from me. I read it front to back *minus the sports page* because it's full of odd and ends about the small town life. There is a small section in which random people are asked different questions each week. Sometimes the questions are as simple as "Will you be buying your produce from the local farmer's market this month?" while some delve a little deeper*rarely, but the answers are always entertaining*.
This weeks question was, "Who would you vote for if the Presidential election were held today?"
Imagine my surprise when I read one woman's answer,"Well, just because I am a woman, I would vote for Hillary Clinton"............
Ok, I know some people are really this simple and stupid, but to base your vote off the gender of a candidate!? How ignorant can we get? That's like saying, "Well, I'm going to vote for Hitler because he has blue eyes"!!
Sad and disturbing is this simplistic, feminist view. Sad to think that I once thought being a feminist meant using your mind, reading to gain information, doing your research, then coming to an informed conclusion. Reminds me a bit of how the US operated about 70 years ago......only then, it was a man thinking for us:) Now we're being fed this feminist crap via satelite and we're gobbling every word up.
Hilary Clinton knows what she is doing. She's been i npolitics long enough to know that in order to get votes, you must know how to symbolize things for OTHER people, without ever paying a serious price. She is a MASTER at appealing to those who are "repressed"...all the while evading responsiblity! She appeals to the feminist in that all they've "suffered" through has not been in vain *OOH RA!* On the coat tails of her husband public affair, she appeals to the abused and humiliated. She appeals to the African American population because she pulls that repressed card at EVERY campaign stop. *By the way, I totally don't understand why we refer to blacks as African American. My ancestors can be traced back to Germany, England, and I even have some Indian in me, but I am not labeled as "German American", not even as an "Indian American". Sorry to pop any bubbles here, but last I checked, my children's great, great, great grandparents weren't slave owners, nor we're their any slave owners around at that time. ahhh, another day, another blog*
Anyhow, I am just sitting here marveling over the stupidity of half a nation. A nation who really believed *and made violent phone calls to the producers!* that JR Ewing was REALLY dead. I don't mean the character, I mean the man who played his character, Larry Hagman. I sincerely hope that this nation can see through HC's phony smile, her sugar caked words, and her ladder climbing strategy.
Until then....it wouldn't surprise me if we see Chelsea start dating a black *sorry, African American* lesbian before the election comes to a head.
So let's hear it for ignorance!
