Blame Canada

I have spent today digesting the 'subtle' signal from Mike Bloomberg that he might be running for President. This is supposed to be a sharp-eyed businessman with a keen sense of what works: Does he really think America wants a Ross Perot with less crazy but more Jew? No chance. But that lapse of judgement pales against Hillary's choice for campaign song: a Celine Dion number written by a Canadian for an Air Canada commercial. Irrespective of taste, why pick a song to begin with? The U.S. is electing a president in 2008, not an alderman in 1956. Play music at campaign stops if you want, but this just seems old-fashioned and small-time, while the world burns. I am growing to think Hillary is a bad candidate for anything. Unless, maybe, you need a really scary dead-eyed woman to chair your garden club.

Very funny CS and I agree.

Polarization along such lines is just in the nature of popular music today. Why pick a song if it might be a big turnoff to some voters?

Unbelievable!

Who, pray tell, thinks this kind of 'teaser' will win a federal election? SACK THEM HILLARY!!

She is toast.

Shame too, I was hoping she would get up. If only all political masterminds were as good as they are on West Wing.

(sigh)

I'm willing to give Hillary Clinton's campaign points for trying. At least this parody of the Sopranos finale is 10 – 12% more clever and timely than the tired Apple attack ad an Obama supporter flooded the internet with a few months ago. But what campaign song did her minions finally settle on?

Celine Dion's "You and I."

Maybe she should have taken a tip from a certain New Jersey kingpin and gone with something by Journey. Or any other song ever composed in the history of human civilization.

Hillary Clinton is one of those politicians that didn't listen. And now she wants to shift the blame onto the Iraqis. Progressives know better. They saw Ms. Clinton practicing crap and they called her on it.

The blame for Iraq lies with each and every politician that voted to give the president the authority to invade Iraq.

Bill and Hillary playing Carmela and Tony. The problem is…which one is Carmela and which is Tony?

I don’t know who’s the worst actor but Hillary seems to have more chemistry with Johnny Sack than with Bill. What a look they gave each other.
