I see Hillary Rodham Clinton is running for the US presidency?
I presume they are using her full name to distinguish her from all the other Hillary Clintons who are going to pop out of the woodwork? Are we to see announcements from Hillary Rhodine Clinton, Hillary Ramrod Clinton and Hillary Badass Clinton in the near future?
We could do with a new prez over there all right. To date, O'Bama has been remarkably dull, and in comparison to his predecessor, positively torpid. I miss Dubya – he was a fantastic inspiration for scribblers like myself and was an almost daily source of fun and delight.
The only problem with HRC is her male/female balance. If the female side takes precedent will we see the White House become the Pink House? Will Merka become swamped under cushions and throws? Or will the male side predominate and Merka will go back to bombing the fuck out of every country that dares sneeze?
There is a danger that Merkans will vote for HRC solely because of her gender. Yiz voted for O'Bama because of his colour and look what you got! You would do well to remember Thatcher. She was apparently a woman until she got the Prime Minister job and it suddenly transpired that she had more balls than a cage-fighter. Jayzus but no one was safe, from the miners to the Argentineans [who still haven’t quite gotten over the shock]. Even now, all these years later there are people in the UK who break down and weep at the memory of The Iron Lady. Post Traumatic Stress is a terrible thing.
I wonder if there is any chance Sarah Palin will run again? The world could do with a bit of colour and she would doubtless provide in spades. The White House would indeed become The Pink House, the Rose Garden would become the Petunia Garden and the front lawn would become a missile silo. Our Sarah has some wild a whacky notions when it comes to running things. Guns would be issued to all children at birth and there would be a new viewing platform in Alaska to watch the Russians. She would do wonders for education too, as overnight 95% of the entire country would become more intelligent than its Prez. She's better looking than HRC too.
Or maybe we'll have Jeb Bush? Back to the good old days of war and pestilence? It would be good to see another Bush in the House causing chaos and mayhem around the world.
Interesting times ahead?
