She can't sing either!
Hillary sings the National Anthem:
Now that was "presidential" wasn't it? Especially where she got the words wrong.

Investigate This Hillary
Turns out, Nagin turned his nose up at the yellow buses, demanding more comfortable Greyhound coaches instead.
"I need 500 buses, man," he told WWL. "One of the briefings we had they were talking about getting, you know, public school bus drivers to come down here and bus people out of here."
Nagin described his response:
"I'm like - you've got to be kidding me. This is a natural disaster. Get every doggone Greyhound bus line in the country and get their asses moving to New Orleans."
While Nagin was waiting for his Greyhound fleet, Katrina's floodwaters swamped his school buses, rendering them unusable. --
From the mind of the one and only Curmudgeonly & Skeptical. The graphic is his too. You all know I'm just not that funny.

"Richland County Democrats held the nation’s first straw poll for the 2008 presidential race Wednesday and the surprise winner was U.S. Sen. Hillary Clinton of New York."
"Clinton got 44 votes to 34 for Edwards. Virginia Gov. John Warner came in third with 32 votes and U.S. Sen. Joe Biden of Delaware got 24 votes."
Um... that would be Gov. Mark Warner, stupid.
Meanwhile, Rasmussen reports that 44% of Americans consider Hillary as a liberal and, 33% of Americans view it as a moderate while 7% believe it is politically conservative. Before the Beast launched an effort to moderate perceptions of her political views, 51% believed that liberal was the right label for her political views.
Finally... according to Rasmussen, if the Beast runs for President in 2008, 30% of Americans say they would definitely vote for her and 36% would definitely vote against her.

Cattlegate, Filegate, Travelgate, Whitewatergate, Troopergate, Chinagate and Monicagate are just some of the scandals that have plagued the Clintons over the course of years. Now we have Fundraisergate, triggered by FEC false filings and a four-count indictment that stem from a Hollywood fundraiser for Hillary Clinton's 2000 senate campaign. And it's a scandal that will undoubtedly continue to haunt her.
Will this new scandal destroy Hillary Clinton's political career, which has been on an upward trajectory from the get-go? Well that remains to be seen. The question is whether Senator Clinton can be directly implicated in criminal wrongdoing. The Clintons always insulate themselves from prosecution by utilizing layers of minions to do their dirty work. To date, the Clintons have been astonishingly adroit at sidestepping disaster. Believe it or not, many Republicans are betting on Hillary Clinton to persevere. Not because they support her. In fact, they vehemently oppose her. It's really a testament to the keen political and legal capabilities of the Clintons that are widely acknowledged. Some Republicans jokingly liken the Clintons to Damien of the Omen series. Invariably, everyone surrounding Damien falls on their sword while the corrupt one continues onward.

No No No No No...
They can't be serious... but I fear they are.

Hillary is evil - and so is Bill
In 1999, a survey of nearly 20,000 readers of the New York Post ranked Mrs. Clinton the sixth most evil person of the millennium.
Her husband, then-President Bill Clinton was ranked No. 2 on the evil list, second only to Adolf Hitler and way above mass-murdering Soviet leader Josef Stalin.
Hitler received 8.67 percent, or 1,664 votes, and Clinton received 8.47 percent, or 1,625, placing him well above mass-murdering Soviet leader Josef Stalin, who got 6.69 percent, or 1,284 votes. And Herself, came in sixth on the survey, with 3.99 percent and 765 votes.
Hitler, Stalin, Pol Pot, Dr. Josef Mengele were offered up as choices, along with Saddam Hussein, Charles Manson, Idi Amin, Genghis Khan, Jeffrey Dahmer, Benito Mussolini, Ayatollah Khomeini, Ted Bundy, John Wayne Gacy, Ivan the Terrible, Fidel Castro, Vlad the Impaler, Timothy McVeigh and Marquis de Sade. Neither of the Clintons were among the choices - their names were written in, by respondents.
Ah, but that was then and this is now. The make-over has begun.
On this year's Gallup survey, Bill Clinton finished second to President George W. Bush for the most admired man.
Herself is now the most admired woman, edging out Oprah Winfrey.

NY Time's Fantasy
Reading Fantasy Politics over at The New York Times is like a preview of "welcome to my nightmare." A nightmare featuring a 2008 inauguaration of Hillary Clinton as president of the United States of America.
Could she really cast aside the baggage from years in the spotlight to become not merely the first senator since John F. Kennedy - or the first Northeasterner of any party since Mr. Kennedy - to be elected to the White House, but America's first woman president?
Think it can't happen?? Think again.
For many Democrats, certainly, she is the only personality, the only larger-than-life figure in the party with the drive, the ambition and the name recognition that might be able to lead the party out of the wilderness of political defeat.
Can she get the nomination? The Times reports:
In a Gallup poll taken in November after the election, 25 percent of respondents chose her as their preferred Democratic candidate; John Kerry came in second at 15 percent.
Welcome to my nightmare.
