Why SHOULDN’T Hillary Clinton Get Her Own Miniseries?

hillaryI’ve had enough of all of the sarcasm I’ve been hearing within conservative circles regarding the upcoming Hillary Clinton miniseries that will be airing on NBC. I don’t get it… Why is everyone so quick to assume that the project is being used as a shameless propaganda tool to promote Hillary’s 2016 presidential candidacy? Talk about cynicism!

The real explanation seems pretty darned obvious to me.

When you think of all of the significant, transformational leaders this great country has had throughout its long, complicated history, doesn’t Hillary Clinton’s name naturally rise to the top of that list? Of course it does!

Just think of all of the glass ceilings in American politics that this trailblazer has shattered throughout her career. She became the first female candidate to run for the U.S. Presidency, after all!

What’s that? There were actually several before her? Oh. Okay. Uh… Let me rephrase that then: She was the first woman to win her political party’s nomination for the U.S. Presidency!

What do you mean she didn’t win the nomination? Oh, that’s right.

Surely, she was the first female Secretary of State then, right?

No?  The third? Really?

Okay, okay. Let’s not worry so much about the whole trailblazer angle. Let’s get to all of the outstanding achievements throughout her public service career, because that’s where she really shines.

As First Lady of the United States, Clinton skillfully survived multiple phony scandals like Whitewater, Travelgate, and Filegate – scandals that were clearly fabricated by the “vast right-wing conspiracy.” Bravo, Hillary! You showed them.

Next, there was her graceful and admirable response to the public airing of her husband’s extramarital, sexual indiscretions. Hillary served as a true role-model for strong, independent women all across the country (like Huma Abedin) by demonstrating sheer integrity in standing by her man out of love and loyalty, and not at all for notoriety and political convenience.

And ask yourself this question: How many First Ladies of the United States can honestly say that they dodged enemy sniper-fire in Bosnia alongside stand-up comedian, Sinbad? The answer is easy: Only Hillary, baby! I don’t know about the rest of you, but I’m very much looking forward to this remarkable example of fearlessness and athleticism being portrayed on film. Rumor has is that Tyler Perry has already signed on for the role of Sinbad, and that the action-scene coordinator from the Lethal Weapon movie franchise is being brought on to work his cine-magic. Goosebumps!

After her time in the White House, Hillary pulled off the absolutely amazing feat of winning a U.S. Senate seat from the great state of New York – a state where Democratic politicians always have a hard time winning. She galvanized an ideologically-divided constituency behind her by convincing voters that after living alongside them for a long 13 seconds in the great state of New York, she was the candidate most in tune with their interests.

As a two-term U.S. Senator, Clinton was so skillful and convincing in her portrayal as a political moderate and an adult, that it lost her her party’s nomination in her run for the presidency in 2008.

Lastly, she was the most effective Secretary of State in our nation’s history… or at least the most traveled one. They mean the same thing, I’m told. She smoothed over our damaged relations with Russia, ended global tensions with North Korea, and brought sweeping peace and stability to the Middle East. And if you doubt that any of those things are true, you’re clearly not watching enough MSNBC.

She ended her tenure as Secretary of State by authenticating her reputation as a caring and compassionate leader. She comforted the mourning families of the four American patriots that we lost in Benghazi, Libya on September 11th, 2012. She left them with her endearing promise to bring to justice the party responsible for their murders: Some director of a YouTube video.

If this isn’t the story of one of the greatest, most fascinating leaders in American history, I don’t know what is. It easily warrants a 4-hour miniseries, possibly even a full-length series, over multiple seasons, because her story is not yet over, my friends.

I can only hope that NBC approaches this project with as much integrity as CBS approached The Reagans television-movie back in 2003, as a lasting tribute to our 40th president. The Reagans, as many of you know, is considered the most honest and accurate portrayal of Ronald and Nancy since the music-video, Land of Confusion by the rock-band Genesis. From a Dead Sleep - by John A. Daly

So far, the signs are good that the Clinton project is being taken seriously. From what I understand, actress Diane Lane (who has been cast to portray Hillary) has even waved her contractual obligation to appear topless in all on-camera roles, in order to bring her acting prowess to prime-time, network television. It’s always encouraging to see performers sacrifice for their art.

So I’m excited about this! NBC hasn’t created a good mini-series since the original “V” from the 1980s. And if the story of Hillary Clinton doesn’t generate at least the level of interest that a fork-tongued, alien-human hybrid baby did… I don’t know what will! Can’t wait to break out the microwave popcorn for this one!

  • I Hate Fascists

    Voter suppression, you can’t speak to it? That is your winning argument? I have heard many pathetic things from you but that one is off the charts. Voter Id is not suppression? Why? Because you say so? Well Pennsylvania House Majority Leader Turzai thinks differently. “Voter ID which is gonna allow Governor Romney to win Pennsylvania. Done”. Look it up. While you are at it look up Applachian State University and Elizabeth City State University, 2 black colleges in North Carolina where election officials are going to prevent the use of a campus address to establish residency. Here’s Pasquotank NC Republican Party Chairman Gilbert: “I plan to take this show on the road”.
    You don’t know the details of exactly which ballots were rejected and why. What you do know is that attorney general Katherine Harris is a hard line right winger, and as such she will give the benefit of every doubt to the Republican. You also know that the rules were not tailor made for Democrats. If anything quite the opposite. Unless you are claiming that they put a gun to her head, any Republican ballot that was disqualified would only be under the most airtight and unambiguous grounds.

    Obama illegally tweaked the healthcare law? Why because you say so? Soros was “financially rewarded” by Obama? Why because you say so? Right wing ideas for healthcare? Can you name one? (aside from Romneycare and the Heritage Foundation from whence it originated)? Remedial history class? I’m not talking about history. I’m talking about the future which in a post Citizens United world has no relevance to the history. The Kochsuchers own the Republican party. By their own admission they spent $400M on the previous election. Of course it was money down the drain but no matter, they see it as an investment and they expect big returns.

    I believe she is also the first SOS that employed an aide with first hand ties and friendships with enemy combatants and the Muslim Brotherhood. Albeit, the Obama administration has insured the placement of known communists and radical muslims throughout the government.

    Did you whine as loudly when CNN did a documentary on
    Mitt Romney in August 2012?

    • John Daly

      Who’s whining about a documentary?

  • ph16

    Can we please take up a collection and get this guy (Ill Will) to a psychologist? And I don’t mean a 50 min a week one, we need a whole team of psychologists from Germany or one of those places. He needs around the clock 24/7 observation like the Elephant Man!

    • John Daly

      Unfortunately, I don’t think Obamacare covers whatever he has.

      • ph16

        Sadly I believe you’re right and in any case, I don’t think there’s a cure for the type of derangement he has. Makes you almost wish you could institutionalize him, straitjacket him, and put in him that rubber room, all the works!

  • cmacrider

    John: You failed to mention one of Hilary’s foreign accomplishments. She came to Canada to meddle in Canadian domestic politics and attempt to intimidate P.M. Harper by using television as her chosen venue for negotiations with the Harper administration. This was effective in activating a latent anti-Americanism across the country and they responded by ensuring P.M. Harper was given a majority in the pending election.

    Now isn’t that a lot better than George W who was always very conscious never to appear as though he was using his superpower status to coerce Canada into anything. Instead Bush sent up ambassador David Wilkins whose southern charm, undisputed diplomatic skills, and intimate knowledge of Canada made him beloved by everyone. Wilkins conducted negotiations of any divisive issue behind closed doors and moved Canadian/American relations to an all time high. Wilkins traveled to every Province and was frequently seen greeting airplanes bringing back our fallen soldiers from Afghanistan. The Bush/Wilkins team seemed to be able to get Canadian cooperation on every issue that was important to the States. I just can’t figure it out. (sarcasm)

  • Brian Fr Langley

    As for Hilary, the left cares not a whit about her accomplishments, (past, present or future) her only job, is too think (and talk) liberal mores and values, thus making them appear as though they really are the mainstream, and not the affront to American civilization that they really are.

  • Josh

    Totally surprised this one made it through the ranks at NBC. A lot of competing Clinton scrips flying across the desk. But, then again, Vivid has the rights to Bill’s life story. And it came close to being a live reenactment. Monica was wide open to the possibility, but Bill couldn’t seem to get up for the role. A man of his discerning tastes has moved on to twenty-somethings in the late fall.

    A Democrat, a woman, a big name, very little accomplished, the only reason the Men’s Wearhouse exists — I can see NBC’s infatuation.

    I’m just glad Nancy Pelosi is 107, functionally retarded, and does not possess the work ethic to run for POTUS. NBC would have a complete lineup. But there’s always the fear of being sued by AMC for ripping off The Walking Dead. So I guess it all works out in the end.

    Smart choice, NBC. America couldn’t stomach eating eggs off a Clinton commemorative plate, but we loves us some trashy TV. Just can Lane, hide the self-tanner and get Snooki to do it. It’ll be ratings gold.

    Oh! I left out Dorothy. A no- brainer; Hillary Clinton who finally comes to her senses and realizes she’s not in Kansas anymore. She’s actually in Bengazi.

  • Skip in VA

    John: Wait a minute! Couldn’t this be a re-make of The Wizard of Oz, only done in modern day terms? The Tin Man (lacking a heart) could be played by Harry Reid. The Cowardly Lion (lacking the courage to tell the truth) by Eric Holder. And The Scarecrow (no brains) by Chuck Schumer. And, of course, the Wizard (who turns out to be a Humbug) by B.H. Obama.

    • John Daly

      Not bad! But I think the president is closer to the wicked witch, who wanted to redistribute the ruby slippers. ;)

    Good to see you and Perlutsky have both decided to give your feeble brains a rest and do movie reviews and leave the critical thinking to others. Do everyone a favor and stick to that and stay out of politics.

    • John Daly

      Ah, quite your crying, Blov. You’re like a cyber-version of Tammy Faye Bakker. If it wasn’t for trolling our columns, you wouldn’t know what to do with yourself. Again, you should be thanking us. Later!

          You’re welcome for making you feel relevant, Blov. Anything I can do to help.

          • Bloviating Ignoramus

            You are the one that needs to feel relevant because you keep on coming with these insipid non-responses. Why don’t you and Perlutsky go back to watching pornographic movies and doing obscene things to WWF action figures and shut up already?

          • Jeff Webb

            Hello, Ihatefascists. You say that a lot, that we’re never gonna take this country back. What do you think the country was before, and what do you think it is now?

          • Ill Will

            Shhhhhh!!!!! There is a Fascist Fatwa on me (again) so I have cleverly disguised my identity!! You aren’t going to rat me out are you Pops!??

          • Jeff Webb

            Are you posting under “guest” also?

            I’ll repeat: what do you think the country was before, and what do you think it is now? If you’re afraid to answer, no need to be. If you don’t understand the question, well, that wouldn’t surprise me.

          • Ill Will

            I have answered your questions in great detail over the past year or so, if you have been paying attention. If not you are out of luck because in typical Fascist fashion in addition to banishing me from posting you Fascists have wiped out all my previous posts as well.

            But as a public service.

            YOU WILL NEVER TAKE THIS COUNTRY BACK. I told you that from day 1 before the last election. You heard it here first.

            After that you declared yourselves the Stupid Party and vowed to win back hearts and minds. I immediately informed you that you could not stop being hateful and stupid any more than rabbits could stop multiplying. That stupidity and hatred are inbred in you. You heard that here first as well. And in typical Fascist fashion you have chosen to become stupider, more hateful, and if they won’t vote for you they simply won’t vote at all.

            This country was, is, will remain, THE LAND OF THE FREE HOME OF THE BRAVE. It will never become your Fascist Fantasyland. You will continue to lose elections. You will continue to be stupefied and dumbfounded. And you heard it here first.

          • Jeff Webb

            Okay, so you meant Republicans won’t get elected again. You made it sound like the America is now a different country.

            Things you really need to get through your thick head:
            -Politicians have strayed really far from the model for years, but America is still a constitutional republic.

            -You misuse the word ‘Fascist’. Conservatives are tired of all the politicians’ mismanagement and power-lust. Since Obama took office, he has taken control of the healthcare industry, ignored laws he’s required to follow, and regularly usurped the role of the Legislative Branch through his agencies’ regulations and his own executive actions. If you want to talk about who’s a Fascist, Obama is the closest thing we’ve got right now. Fascists want more power over others at any cost.

            -Republicans actually are pretty stupid, and might indeed fail to ever get elected president again, but it’s because they keep playing nice with democrats.
            -You are projecting every time you call us hateful. Any hatred posted by others around here pales in comparison to yours, so you can go ahead and jump off your high horse.

            I never saw your posts that got deleted, but I’ve got this hunch that if I were to look into it, I’d find a bunch of comments that crossed the line.

          • Ill Will

            Crossing the line? Was it crossing the line when you taunted and ridiculed Diane Feinstein’s heroic but vain attempt to save the lives of the SF gunshot victims? Perlutsky calling for shooting liberals on a regular basis? Perlutsky’s ultimatum of blood in the streets if Obama is not impeached? If crossing the line means coming on your turf and beating you at your own game every time then no doubt I crossed the line. Making me vanish without a trace is rather Fascist of you, don’t you think? And is an indicator of things to come if your Fascist Fantasyland would ever become a reality (which it won’t). Now, you want to argue who is the Fascist? Argue with the 90% blacks, 70% Latins and Asians, 85% Muslims who voted against you. And that was with you playing nice? Well play rough next time and try for 100%. You right wingers are united in hatred, greed, misery, and stupidity. It comes thru loud and clear. You never deny it, although you try to deflect attention away from it. And as you found out in the last election, the country hates you back. In spite of your voter suppression, your genetic engineering of the Electoral College, and all your dirty tricks, you will continue to lose election after election. Count on it. And remember where you heard it first.

          • Jeff Webb

            Well, I didn’t really expect everything to make it through your aforementioned thick head right off the bat. Let’s give it some time.

          • Ill Will

            I obviously have a fleet of pool-personnel to take care of such things. Still, I don’t think my personal security guards (who came highly recommended by Rupert Murdoch, btw) would be amused by such a stunt. They’ll toss you to the curb outside my front gate, right next to the homeless people out there who I, of course, routinely chastise for my own amusement while sipping on pina coladas.

            You want more? Fascism is voter suppression. Fascism is voter intimidation. Fascism is government of the people by and for the Koch Bros. Fascism is threatening legal action against any state official who provides assistance or resources of any kind to Obamacare. Fascism is threatening to shut down the government unless Obamacare is repealed. Fascism is preventing the EPA from protecting the environment. Fascism is preventing the CFPB from protecting consumers. Fascism is defunding Planned Parenthood and NPR. Your turn.

          • Jeff Webb

            -Suppression: you’re referring to voter ID, I assume. Is it a coincidence that libs suffer amnesia moments after they’re told that ID’s are free to anyone who cannot afford one? Say, would you consider Al Gore conservative? You know Gore, the guy who successfully had overseas military ballots tossed out in 2000.
            -Intimidation: not a conservative hallmark, and in fact we’re still pretty angry that the Obama administration decided not to prosecute the Obama supporters who intimidated voters in Philadelphia.
            -Koch: it’s hardly Fascist when big money people are influencing politics, especially when they fund pols and organizations for limited gov’t control. I don’t like Soros’ and Weinstein’s roles in politics, but they aren’t Fascist.
            -Obamacare/EPA/CPFB: these are like most other federal agencies, in that they’re more about power than their stated purpose. Whether or not you agree with what they do, it’s just not Fascist to oppose gov’t control over others.
            -PP/NPR: probably the 2 best examples of you misusing the word Fascist. It would be more apt if you were talking about a gov’t attempt to shut them down entirely out of personal dislike. Governor Romney was talking about pulling a percentage of their overall income because the gov’t is bloated with debt. In fact, given the millions of citizens who don’t support abortion, to stop sending their tax money to PP is pretty damn far from Fascism.

            As I said in a previous comment, Obama is more like a Fascist (though certainly isn’t one) than his opponents, with laws and policies that exercise more control over the citizenry, and not respecting the separation of powers. Agree with him all you want, but your frequent use of the word Fascist doesn’t make you look especially smart.

          • Ill Will

            -Suppression: Voter id, banning voter registration, eliminating early voting, making voting inconvenient/impossible, limiting valid types of id, allowing ‘observers’ to challenge voters
            -Intimidation (institutionalized): Parents of students who vote at their school cannot use said student as a dependent for tax purposes. Business owners threatening employees with layoffs unless their (right wing) candidate is elected. Both very much right wing hallmarks
            -Koch: Ownership of a major political party which if elected will insure that they effectively make all the rules? That is the very definition of Fascism.
            Obamacare/EPA/CFPB: You think universal healthcare is Fascist? You think enforcing rules to prevent another financial meltdown or another Gulf cesspool is Fascist? You like dirty air, dirty water, and Clean Coal? Believe what you want to believe. No one outside this Fascist Fantasyland takes you seriously.
            PP/NPR: You see these as major contributors to the debt? Believe what you want to believe. No one outside this Fascist Fantasyland takes you seriously.
            You think you are the smart one? Keep right on believing. And keep losing elections. You may catch on eventually.

          • Jeff Webb

            First, thanks for not denying that democrats are guilty of suppression & intimidation.
            You are aware that George Soros fits the Koch paragraph perfectly, right? Well, one exception: Soros’ party is the one actually in power. It sounds like you are okay with fat-cat ownership of a major political party as long as it’s a liberal fat-cat. If that’s the case, going by your definition YOU’RE the Fascist.
            I said it’s not Fascist to oppose O’care. In fact, if you support it you’re in a fringe minority. Liberals in high places know as well as any conservative that this law is really bad.
            Remember, and this is not an opinion: Fascism is vast control of the citizenry by the gov’t.
            I’ve already told you the reason you don’t appear smart. You use the word Fascist ignorantly. I understand you are in favor of the EPA and others, but not sharing your view of them, and opposing how they operate, ISN’T FASCIST. Of all the names you could hurl at others (tool/jerk/whatever), you keep picking one that only makes you look stupid.
            Okay, I’ll stop with the advice. If you want to be ignorant, it’s your business.

          • Ill Will

            It goes without saying that I deny that Democrats are guilty of suppression/intimidation. What Democrat supports any of the above items? Soros does not own the Democratic party and did not spend anywhere near the $400M that the Kochsuchers did. When right wingers talk of limited government they mean limited to the Kochsuchers and the handful of other billionaires that own them. The vast control of the citizenry in your Fascist Fantasyland will dwarf anything you see now. How much? Think Iran. Obamacare is supported by a fringe minority? You mean the same fringe that elected Obama again? Ignorant? Remind me again, which party labeled itself the Stupid Party (and proceeded to get stupider)? As long as you are the one that is calling me ignorant I take it as a compliment. When you call me a genius that is when I will start to worry. Look there’s no need to argue. I already told you what is going to happen in 2014, 2016, and beyond. Just remember where you heard it first. Until then have a nice life. And watch your mouth or Daly will have a Fascist Fatwa out on you too.

          • Jeff Webb

            If you ask what democrat supports the above items, you didn’t read my previous comment. Pay attention next time.
            You’re blinded to the level of sickness by your ideology if you think the Koch’s control the GOP while Soros doesn’t control the DP.
            Yes, fringe minority. It is possible, you know, for a guy to get re-elected and his policy to be unpopular. With all the broken promises (you can keep your plan/doctor, costs will go down, etc), democrat pols and their employees doing everything they can to exempt themselves from it, Obama supporters now having a problem with it, Obama delaying the employer mandate for a year so big businesses won’t feel the big hurt until after the 2014 elections, and other illegal tweaks, there really is no arguing the law is of benefit to society.
            Your problem (one of the many) is that you think liberal policies, agencies, and organizations do just what they say they do, giving you a false smugness when others point out their bad realities. Liberals are all about power, the past 4+ years prove it, and you think you can name-call conservatives into taking the blame.
            BTW, I’m one of this site’s moderators. Do you not find it ironic that you’re having an extended discussion with someone you insist doesn’t tolerate discussion?

          • Ill Will

            No Democrat including Gore or anyone else supports any of the above items. I don’t know the details of the overseas military ballots in 2000, and neither do you. But if the ballots were invalidated they were according to the existing rules in a right wing state, and there is no comparison to the present case of the right wing making up their own rules. Soros is certainly not backing liberals to enrich himself, as is the case with the KochSuchers. If Soros wanted to enrich himself he would join the KochSuchers and gravitate to the right wing. However popular/unpopular Obamacare is, and it is both, it is obviously more popular than your right wing alternative which is nothing. Notice Arizona where Brewer is no longer pointing fingers at Obama and forced her right wing legislature to vote on and accept the Medicaid expansion. The employer mandate has no effect on big business who already provide health insurance. I much prefer liberals who do not do exactly what they say vs. right wingers who do do everything they say. Your right wing concept of small government = less control is exactly the opposite of reality. Iran and North Korea have rather small governments. Do you want to live there? Capitalism with checks and balances does not equal socialism. Capitalism without checks and balances is like the game of Monopoly where all the money flows one way and everyone else goes bankrupt. Yeah I am rather surprised. You are talking nonsense but at least it is coherent nonsense which is better than Daly’s non-responses, and much better than loony off the charts Perlutsky who wants to shoot liberals on sight.

            Your turn Grandpa. Are you punking out?

          • John Daly

            It was for excessive profanity. And he already knows that.

          • Ill Will

            I know different and so do you. All sites have functionality to trap profanity so that it is never published and this site is no different and we both know that. As usual you were in a battle of wits with no ammunition and you took the cowardly way out. And you took your cowardice to the next level and wiped out everything I have ever posted, which is downright Fascist, and speaks volumes of your character. You simply do not want any liberals posting here. You abused poor Brother Silverman no end and he no longer posts here. So now it is just you and your cult followers talking amongst yourselves, which is how you like it. I just state all of this for the record. I couldn’t care less and I take it as a compliment and validation of everything I have been saying about you. Have a nice life.

            Are you honestly expecting me to believe that you’re so dumb that you haven’t noticed that all of the f-bombs you’ve typed have made it through to the site? They have, and after you went for a record the other day, I decided that enough was enough.

            Believe me, if I banned people merely for sounding like an idiot, you would have gotten banned a LONG time ago. Your third-grade, Michael Moore “whit” may be painfully pathetic and even make me feel sorry for you at times, but it will never get you banned.

            Lots of liberals post here all the time (including Silverman who never left and is still quite active) and they will continue to do so. Wash your mouth out with some soap and you can stick around too.

          • Ill Will

            So now you admit it was you. Previously you blamed it on some admin. Truly gutless. There were no “f bombs” in any of my posts on this thread. The record will show that. Which is why you saw to it that there is no record, and that speaks volumes of your cowardice. And to take it to the next level and wipe out everything that I have ever posted here speaks volumes of your Fascism. You and I both know that “F bombs” are not the issue here, but that having started something you could not finish, you took the gutless, cowardly way out. You have a lot of Zimmerman in you. Look I take your Fascist Fatwa on me as a compliment. And a favor because frankly you and your fellow Fascists make me sick. My wife says I should stop wasting time on you morons and she is right. So I will leave you with this. I told you before last year’s election that you would never take the country back. And you didn’t. I told you that you could only become more hateful and more stupid. And you did. Now listen up. Your downward spiral into hatred and stupidity will continue. The country will return your hatred many times over. The minority vote against you will reach 100%. You will continue to lose election after election. You will continue to be stupefied and dumbfounded. Remember where you heard it first. Now go back to your movies and have a nice life.

            >>So now you admit it was you. Previously you blamed it on some admin.

            The time before, it WAS another admin. This last time, it was me. Not sure what you find so mind-boggling there, Nancy Drew.

            >>There were no “f bombs” in any of my posts on this thread.

            Lol. “In this thread” being the key, of course. As you know, it was in my other column. Suspending a user doesn’t distinguish by column. One size fits all, and it wipes out the last 30 days of your posts – not all of them. I know… it’s heartbreaking to think that your potty-mouth cost us all 30 days worth of your deep trolling-wisdom on this website. I just hope everyone else will make it through this hard time.

            Later, and try and keep it clean in the future so we won’t have to repeat this exercise. K?

          • Ill Will

            Again just to set the record straight. There was 1 obscenity in the other column but that was not the issue because you responded to it by calling me Tammy Faye and telling me to grab a tissue. I then told you to grab something else . No obscenities, although the thought was somewhat impure, no question. Did you really think you could intimidate me with that weak doo-doo? You should know better by now. So let’s set the record straight. You censored me for disrespecting you, not for the obscenity. And that is fine because I don’t like you and I have zero respect for you. You are nothing but a hack who takes blood money from the Koch Bros to be their mouthpiece. Let’s see if you ever write the article you said you were going to about your vision of uniting the country. You heard it here first. You won’t. Why? a. You don’t have one. b. It would put your Dalymaniacs to sleep. c. That is not what the Koch Bros pay you for

            I’m done humoring whatever mental illness you’re suffering from, man. Unless that nonsense above was drug-induced, I’d suggest you find some professional help. Seriously.

          • Ill Will

            Yeah I’m high on Skittles and Iced Tea. Regardless, you cannot and do not deny any of the above.

          • Ill Will

            I can tell you what it never will be. It never will be a Fascist Fantasyland

    Good one!

      Thanks!

    Hopefully Susan Rice will get some credit for explaining Benghazi to the American people when Hillary was too busy until after the election.

      Perhaps she could do a cameo.
