Hillary Clinton isn’t exactly known as a raunchy lady, so it was quite fun to see her letting loose and being shafted by a black man the other day in Iowa. Apparently, she enjoyed it, because she’s going to meet him in New Hampshire to receive another pounding tomorrow, the dirty little minx!
Yes indeed, although I am usually apathetic at best about politics, seven years of the dreadful Dubya in office has made even a cynic like me start getting excited as the horses gallop out onto the paddock in this electoral race. If I was going to vote, I’d be looking for brains plus charisma plus vision (or at the very least, as Meatloaf once sang, “two out of three ain’t bad.”)
Yes, someone who has a rousing vision of a new and better society could make even me rush to the ballot box and cast my vote (had I the right to vote, which I don’t). Charisma makes people root for you and brains are what you need so that you actually know what you are talking about when you read your prepared speech. Right now, my vote would go to John Edwards, not saucy Hillary. I want to like Hillary because she’s not a bad sort, but she’s strictly Charisma 0, and yes, she has brains, but she has those tedious dry legal brains that make you tune out when she talks. There’s no vision there, no imagination. And a voice as irritating as nails scraping down a blackboard. In the Iowa Caucus (where she came third), mostly over sixty fives voted for her, and I reckon that was just little old ladies who were like, “Let’s vote for this woman because it’s about time a woman had a go and we might be dead before the next election!” Which is not a good enough reason to vote for her, in my opinion.
In other news, an actress is trying to sue the jewelry company she made this ad for. She wants $5 million because she says it makes her look lewd. She claims she was duped when she was told to ‘act all excited like she would if she was given a particularly nice bit of jewelry’. Evidently she was thinking of a diamond encrusted vibrator during the take. I think this may be one of those cases where the lady did an advert because she was hard up and then saw the advert and thought, “Oh dear, I do look a bit like a third rate porn actress. Maybe I could get this taken off the air and make a few million dollars to boot?” Do you think she has a case?
I think Hillary could still get somewhere if she could get a bit of passion into her speeches by taking a leaf out of the book of that actress. If not, Hillary has pretty much a snowball’s chance in hell of becoming the first female president. What say you?
