When Politicians Jump the Shark

All three candidates for president – John McCain, Barack Obama, and Hillary Clinton – will be appearing together tomorrow night on national television. No, they won’t be taking part in a debate of the issues. They won’t be holding simultaneous campaign rallies. No, nothing substantive like that. Together, they will be appearing…

…wait for it…

…on American Idol.

What? Are they gonna sing or something? Will Simon be allowed to degrade them? (I’d even tune in for that!).

How ridiculous.

    In a recent black & white Pennsylvania political ad, 3 year-old Hillary Clinton, arms extended, toddles toward the camera. Hillary’s voice-over explains the Rodham family cottage, down by the lake, lacked indoor plumbing. It was hardship borne from the start. Yet, more telling events seem to fall by the wayside. Take Hillary’s first real job, with, I might add, indoor plumbing. The upshot: Jerry Zeifman fired Hillary for unethical practices during the Watergate Investigation. Why was twenty-seven year old Hillary fired? “Because she was a liar,” Zeifman said in a recent interview. “She was an unethical, dishonest lawyer. She conspired to violate the Constitution, the rules of the House, the rules of the committee and the rules of confidentiality.”

    Not only does Mr. Zeifman’s story go to character, it goes to a lifelong pattern of lying and obfuscation. And, it took Zeifman twelve years to get it aired. After Watergate, Zeifman could not recommend Hillary for any subsequent position of public or private trust, nor furnish her with a letter of recommendation. After that TKO, Hillary’s employment record is a matter of strict cronyism. A leopard never changes her spots. Again, Hillary Clinton is a bold-faced liar, who will stop at nothing. I hope Simon remembers that when Hillary next appears on American Idol. Should anyone doubt Mr. Zeifman’s veracity regarding the Clintons: http://theseedsof9-11.com

    The Clintons corrupted the soul of the Democratic Party. -Henry Ruth, lead Watergate courtroom prosecutor.

    At least they aren’t answering inane questions, such as “do you wear boxers or briefs”, like a certain candidate did in ’92. Bagh.
