Holy Crap II- Aftermath
All funny fellows, comic men, and clowns of private life--
They'd none of them be missed, they'd none of them be missed.
And apologetic Statesmen of a compromising kind,
such as-- What d'ye call him--Thing'em Bob, and
likewise-- never mind.
And 'St--'St--'St and What's-his-name, and also You-know-who--
The task of filling in the blanks I'd rather leave to you.
But it really doesnt matter whom you put upon the list,
For they'd none of them be missed-- they'd none of them be missed.
'The Mikado' (Gilbert & Sullivan)
So Gollum got the Ring back. The Clintons were dancing and grinning last night, my Precious! You almost would've believed it was genuine. It probably was. They had been reduced, earlier in the day to the most amazingly, cringingly, embarrassing behavior ("We cant be a new story, I'm sorry. I cant make her younger, taller, male." sez BJ). Hillary sobbed that the cruel voters werent going to let her achieve her dream of helping every American solve all their problems. I almost cried myself. Maybe I'll change my registration to Democrat before the California Primary so I can help her help America. Maybe not. But it worked. People are such saps.
Anyway, to return to the Gollum metaphor, she has the Ring back. And what did Gollum plan to do once he got it back. Revenge. The Clints arent good at governing, they're not eloquent and they dont have any genuineness or likeability but there is one thing you cant fault them on. Revenge. The Borgias were slouches compared to this power couple, with BJ as Alexander IV and Hillary...well, you know.
It wasnt Rush Limbaugh or the Vast Right-Wing Conspiracy this time, either. It was the liberals that made them crawl and abase themselves so abjectly. The press, the pundits, the pollsters, the wavering union bosses, the senators heading for the hills, the suddenly reluctant donors. The gleeful cheering at the Clinton Meltdown was widespread among the Glitterati. A whole list of the Glitterati to sit nervously at Her Thighness' first White House Press Dinner as the plates of food are served and think about the History Of Renaissance Italy they took in college. If they had any guts it would make them more determined to destroy her, but liberals dont have any guts. They dont understand that an implacable enemy either has to be defeated or they will destroy you. Future good behavior will not matter. They hope that being nice from now on will make the Clints forget this little contretemps and be friends. Dont count on it, baby.
