The Cackler

The scariest thing by far this Halloween season is Hillary Clinton cackling her way through interviews whenever the topic of her emails and private server come up. Who needs zombies and vampires for a good fright,  just dim the lights, send the kids next door and turn on CNN.

Now contemplate having to listen to that for four or, God forbid, eight long years if this woman gets elected President? It would not be an infrequent event either, for as sure as the sun rises in the morning, the word scandal follows the Clinton name. Day and night we’d be subjected to it, from one Oval Office press conferences to another, cackle, cackle, cackle.

A nightmare of unthinkable proportions.

It’s certainly easy to understand why Hillary Clinton is  rendered incoherent when queried about her emails. What’s she going to do, tell the truth? Not an option. Rule one of being a Clinton is to never, ever fess up to lying. Rule two is to never crack under pressure so it’s unlikely either that we will see her curl up on live TV in a fetal position and weeping like a baby as Anderson Cooper peppers her with questions.  Sorry for the visual on that.

So what’s left but madness? The lies have finally caught up to her and really there is nothing else for her to do but cackle away and pray enough voters either don’t notice or aren’t bothered by it.

That to me is the most frightening part of all, that plenty of people know she is lying, know she is corrupt, know there is nothing she won’t do or say to benefit Team Clinton; they know all this but will vote for her any way.  Because well, she’s a woman you know and wouldn’t it be great to have a woman as President.

And the consolation prize for the rest of us? A Cackling Hillary pen. Shoot me now.

      No, he’s not my favorite. I like a lot of his ideas but don’t think he has enough cross over appeal. He has a whiny voice too which I know should mean nothing but it bugs the crap out of me. Right now Rubio and Fiorina are my top two but I also like Carson. Christie is starting to grow on me too. Whose corner are you in? You seem too principled for it to be HRC… Sanders?

        Sanders can’t win, although he might well be by far the best candidate – no one votes for old, bald men, no matter how much intellectual acumen they may project, which leaves Hillary – not my first choice, but my best choice.

          I’m just wondering though Arch, is there ever a possibility you would put party aside and vote for the best person? I know, Hillary presses all the right progressive policy buttons for you-although most are vastly different than what she was spouting 5 years ago, which themselves are vastly different than her spouts of 10 years ago-but seriously the woman is corrupt to the bone. If a miracle occurred and Jim Webb were the D nominee, I would vote for him over several of the R’s, certainly over Trump.

        If he had not indicated the wrong preferences on immigration, Rubio might work. No problems with Fiorina or Carson, but Christie is all talk. Tough Conservative talk, but he too often does the Liberal thing. Check his record.

    Still ROFL over that Hillary pen! What a hoot. And it’s sounds so much like her. She is the most calculating politician to run for this office in many a year and that’s really saying something. I like Carson. He’s beholden to no one as a non-politician. And compared to Hillary who has not accomplished anything of substance in her life, Carson is the anti-Clinton. He has so many more meaningful accomplishments. Being the first to separate twins co-joined at the head and operating on a baby still in the womb. Wow! C’mon, archaeopteryx1, it’s not brain surgery.

    I want the Hilary pen. Badly.

    I’ve got a moderate republican friend with whom I usually have stimulating political discourse. He invites me to “join the dark side” but which side is that? Where can a Jeffersonian Post-liberal Bull Moose call home? My friend and I agree on a lot, especially on the idea that there are something like 22 people in the two primaries and the best one of the lot is an unelectable self-described socialist from a state with, what, one electoral vote? Sheesh.

    I liked Hilary over Obama in the democratic primary eight years ago, but I liked McCain too–right up until they handcuffed him to that circus act, Palin. And to come back with Romney? Argh! Republicans pretty much forced me to vote for Obama both times–and now the front runners are Donald Trump and a New Adventist young earther? That’s the best the right can do? Someone said they liked Carson, and maybe he has some good qualities, but I stopped caring about him the moment he said that he believes the world is just a few thousand years old. He’s walking that back a bit now, but I’m not giving that guy keys to drones, let alone the nuclear missiles. Not happening.

    You’re right that Fiorino doesn’t seem that bad, but like Bush she’s going to be torn about by intra-party dysfuntion. Christie is a lout, but he’s sincere and open about who he is, and lets be honest: Tony Soprano got things done, and Christie has that New Jersey bull in a china shop thing down.

    Unless something startling happens, and the right somehow manages to get it’s crap together, Hilary is president and we’re looking at more of the same–unimpressive democrats squeaking past niche-market republicans for president, a stalemate in the Senate, and paralyzing anarchy in the republican congress. 300 million people in this country, there has to be someone out there worth voting for, but then again, maybe we’re beyond that as a society, beyond the age of adversarial consensus, grudging respect, or even basic cooperation.

      Interesting times we are in eh? I see it as inevitable and not even necessrily bad, just painful to witness. Our system of government is in shambles, where true reformers are forced out of both parties because most don’t want the gravy train to stop. The churn on the Republican side is much needed and I think the same thing will happen with the Democrats soon enough and it will be a better party for it. Right now both look like train wrecks though, I agree. Some adversarial consensus and grudging respect from all as you say is much needed but we may very well be beyond that.

        Arch–Happily, no. My friend and I happen to share having opinions that fall far outside the dominant paradigms of our respective affiliations. Heck, I wouldn’t be registered for either party if I didn’t have to be, in order to vote in the local primaries; but In Pennsylvania you have to be a democrat or a Republican to vote in primaries, which would limit my voice, especially at the county, local, and school board levels. I used to vote all over the place–I have a friend who was a senior aide of Arlen Specter, an (in)famous moderate republican who was driven from his party and a man I greatly respected, because he voted for his constituency, regardless of the crap that came down on him. The religious saturation of the right has pretty much pushed me leftwards, but there are of similar hypocrisies on the left–so I stand in the middle and do my best to rain shame down on both.

    When it comes to politics, people seem to respond like grazing sheep. They are herded up and follow the one in front of them. There may be complaining, but most people are not willing to put the personal effort in required for change. They would rather complain and then passively continue living as usual. Having credible people outside of politics involved in these elections is a positive event. For change to occur, it usually requires small increments. Having candidates outside of politics is a good start.

    Great post and a lot of good comments. Some I agree with and a lot I don’t agree with. My take on the present candidates of both parties is: who is the best person that is not part of the political class. Trump Carson and Fiorino pretty much fill the ticket. Cruz hasn’t been entrenched so he is a possibility.
    If you are entertaining a vote for the “cackler” then you need some serious couch time. The women is a liar of the first order just as her husband is and has put the security of this country second to her political career and donations to her so called charity. If you vote Dem because you do not like Rep then don’t vote at all. Stay home and watch the soaps. Look at your own state and read the real truth about companies leaving people leaving and high taxes. That’s what Dem votes get you.

      Lol Dennis, I always appreciate your comments. I hope you didn’t take my post as an endorsement for Hillary….it’s pretty much the opposite, or that’s what I intended.

      You bring up a good point about people needing to look at their home states. Who is in charge and how have their policies worked out? I know in CA we are virtually solid blue in both the legislature and governorship, have been for years and the result of two decades of progressivism have been distastrous for middle and low income groups. Taxes ever marching upward, income inequality shooting through the roof, crumbing roads, extremely poor levels of service to those that need it (Medicaid, dependent aid, etc…) and it’s nearly impossible to start a business and actually make a profit so you can expand and hire more people which is why many have closed up shop and march onward to TX and other more business friendly grounds.

        Tricia I would never for even a fleeting moment think that you would endorse Hillary. I think we’re all in a state of flux about the upcoming elections. The Washington establishment is in worse flux then the average voter. Proof is how well Trump is doing in the polls. It’s a long way until we can cast a vote even in early voting. It is fun to watch all the pundits floundering around for reasons why Trump is doing so well and Hillary is up in the polls and when is Trump going to quit. The hearings tomorrow may shed some light on just how much of a liar Hillary is and those in the Obama administration lied to cover their failures. Guess Obama thought Americans wouldn’t care about 4 men getting killed in a far off place. He and Hillary were dead wrong!

            There are many questions Americans deserve answers to regarding the night Chris Stephens died and how Hilary handles them will say much about her ability to lead this country as President. You should be welcoming these hearings; they will either validate her or bring about more red flags which anyone not voting strictly on party line will be happy knowing about before the election when they can still change their vote.
