Back in the days of the peace dividend, “Read my lips,” and “It’s the economy stupid” we were told we got two for the price of one. And we sure did. One president to chase skirts in the Oval Office and one harridan to persecute his victims: Billary, the corrupt couple from Whitewater. Remember back in the Sleazy Nineties when the Clinton interlewed between George I and George II lowered the standards for what was acceptable public conduct. Remember all the fun we had with these two madcap political savants: Chinagate, Travelgate, Whitewater, Vince Foster, Filegate, the Cattle Futures Miracle, Lootergate, Drug Dealer Donor Scandal, Ponzi Scheme, and the Political Favor Scandal.
Then in 2000 AlGore their trusty assistant failed in his bid to continue their legacy of lunacy. After two terms of Bushness the female side of Billary was in the Senate not passing legislation just screeching enough to keep her name in the headlines, approving wars she would later repudiate, and condemning Bush for believing phony intelligence she believed before she doubted. In the meantime Bubba was flying off on the Lotlia Express to Orgy Island for a little RR with underage sex slaves.
Along comes 2008 and she and her con-conspirator Bill lined up for a re-run of the bimbo eruption express. A funny thing happened on the way to her coronation. Barack Hussein Obama erupted from who knows where, and reminiscent of the sainted JFK who defeated Tricky Dick he vanquished the Duality of Deception and just as JFK’s media facilitators built Camelot he built Chicago-on-the-Potomac. This is a wondrous place where America gets fundamentally transformed from the Unipolar Hegemon of the World into a banana republic whose Tin Pot rules by decree, the borders are erased, the New Normal says .05% growth is the best we can do, and our Dear Leader bows to foreign despots and apologizes for who we were.
All that was just a bump in the road.
Along comes 2012 and after four years as a figurehead Secretary of State handing out re-set buttons that didn’t work, presiding over the massacre in Benghazi, and setting up an illegal private server so Bubba could solicit pre-election bribes she is ready to ride the backs of a complicit media back into the White House. A funny thing happened on her way to her second coronation. Crazy Bernie after years of being a Socialist back bencher became a Democratic Socialist and started winning primaries. His brand of “From each according to their ability to each according to their need” Marxism appealed to the everyone-gets-a-trophy-for-showing-up generation and Billery started taking on water.
As the BOGO candidate failed to put away the crazy guy on the left they traded promises to give everyone everything, to punish business, and humble, humiliate, and cripple America even more than BHO. Just because she is universally known to be an inveterate liar people seemed to believe the crazy one more than the sleazy one.
Crazy Bernie’s crowds filled stadiums and she was lucky to fill gymnasiums. In an honest contest crazy would have beaten sleazy but it wasn’t anywhere near a fair fight. The media carries water for the Duality of Debauchery and the super delegates in the Democrat system make the voters merely cover for smoke-filled rooms.
In the old days Bill would bite his lip and tell us, “I did not have sex with that woman,” or Hillary would remind us she is a woman and that would settle the matter. Just like prosecutors believe they can indict a ham sandwich the media believed they could foist any type of incompetent dishonest lecher and his less than better half on the great unwashed. Then along came Trump.
The Donald upended the calculations of the Perpetually Reelected- Mainstream Media-Crony Capitalist Cartel. The political hacks are confounded not knowing how to counter his counter punches. The Media can’t help themselves. They have to cover everything he says since he pushes their ratings which have been taking a beating from alternative online sources. They may spend more time trying to destroy him than anything else, but it turns out there is no such thing as bad press and they do spell his name right. And the Crony Capitalists? He’s one of their own, so if they haven’t already jumped on the Trump Train they will, because they know which side of their bread is buttered and they always end up on the winning side.
There are still many interesting things to look forward to in this unusual election cycle.
Billary will go over the top even if she loses California, but Crazy Bernie won’t go away. He’s like the goofy old uncle who always shows up. Sometimes you aren’t even sure how he is related to you, but he always shows up.
Then we have the 2016 Republican National Convention which will be held in Cleveland, Ohio at the Quicken Loans Arena July 18-21, 2016. It will be the GREATEST SHOW ON EARTH complete with all-star entertainment, suspense and drama. This will break records for ratings and launch Trump the Magnificent onto the world stage as the anointed leader of the millionaires and billionaires who are going to save the forgotten man.
Next comes the 2016 Democratic Convention that will be held at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia July 25th-28th, 2016. That will either be a snoozefest or Chicago 1968 on steroids. After this gathering of give-away artists have done all they can to whip their disparate interest groups into line, bribe the covetous, and fool the rest, after more than a year of preliminaries we finally will arrive at the actual election campaign.
Ah, the 2016 election this should be a show worth watching. Billary will try everything. Bill will bite his lip and Hillary will remind everyone she’s a woman. The Media will do their best to paint her as a St. Hillary of Arch riding in to save us from the Trump monster.
This should be Kabuki of the highest order. Billary will flail around using the same Democrat playbook as always and hurl baseless charges through their media megaphone like they did with Romney, “He hasn’t paid taxes in years” or “He gave someone a wedgie back in seventh grade.” Bill will bite his lip and Hillary will still be a woman.
Mr. Trump will counterpunch so effectively Bill will be calling her Crooked Hillary before he’s done. They won’t know what hit them. They are busy building up the Clinton Library and Message Parlor with bribes, I mean donations, from the misogynistic oil slicks and anyone else who wants to get on the waiting list to rent the Lincoln Bedroom or get a pardon. Having made millions giving 20 minute speeches about nothing Billary has no conception of what a person who really builds things and is a mover and shaker based on their achievements not their connections can move and shake. They’ll have PTSD by the time the election results add their name to Goldwater and McGovern in the list of also rans.
