Hillary's White House "Experience"

Hillary Clinton and her supporters often cite -- either obliquely or specifically -- her past "White House experience" as one of her credentials to be President.

I've sometimes wondered: If Laura Bush ran for President and cited her White House experience, what would be the reaction of those on the left and in the media?

We all know the answer.

Some would assert that Hillary was a different kind of first lady, having offices in the West Wing and being "fully immersed in the daily operation of the West Wing," as Byron York's column (subject link) quotes from Hillary's autobiography.

But as York points out, if we give Hillary credit for her White House experience, she wasn't exactly impressive in the job. Healthcare? The travel office firings?

Not exactly an impressive "executive" performance. But I doubt that the mainstream media will go out of its way to remind voters of this in coming months.

That Hillary would even want to remind the public of her 'experience in the White House' is puzzling...guess its one of those cataclysmic collisions of fact and fiction, ensuing in a new surreal other world construct where she is happily queen of her universe.

No other explanation possible.

What a great summary, Dana! :)

Of course, the media happily going along with this surreal other world construct doesn't help matters...

Best wishes,

Hey Dana,

Maybe it was that tax write-off martini brunch, but I don't know what "cataclysmic collisions of fact and fiction, ensuing in a new surreal other world construct" actually means. Throw in that "queen of the universe" bit and it reminds me of talk in the parking lot of a Grateful Dead concert.

Just wondering there, honey, since you once said the Bonester's completely psychedelic-free posts had to be "stepped over."

You dig on Jerry Garcia?

What sharp witticisms, boney. Now, now mustn’t get our bag in a bunch over Hillary. When the mainstream media is obviously toking on something illegal whenever it comes to Hillary, precise language is a must. It's the only way to clear the smoke.

Hey Piehole,

Looks like you and Dana have matching tie-dye T-shirts--because I don't what YOU'RE talking about either.

Something funny happened at Al Gore's Live Earth concert--and only Dana and Piehole and the surveillance video know the true story.

Who would have thought all this, from check-pants George Bush robots? Okay, hippies, here's some more "precise language" I'm sure you'll enjoy:

Picture yourself in a boat on a river
With tangerine trees and marmalade skies
Somebody calls you, you answer quite slowly
A girl with kaeleidoscope eyes

Cellophane flowers of yellow and green
Towering over your head
Look for the girl with the sun in her eyes
And she's gone

Hillary in the Senate with fat legs
Hillary in the Senate with fat legs
Hillary in the Senate with fat legs

Bag of Bones,

Dude. Last I checked I have never been nor ever will be your 'honey'. So save the patronizing sexism for some other really lucky girl, okay?

In her desperate attempt for noteriety, power and significance Hillarye not only parked herself in her own office in the WH, she also made a travesty of healthcare reform and as already mentioned in the post had some serious issues with travel office firings.

You know the rest, no need to rehash crap.

Keep on truckin, Bag of Bones, just watch the terms of affection, 'k?

Kind of touchy there, cookie.

You ever in San Bernandino on weekends? I'll buy you a brewski at Rowdy's Roost. (Hope that'll make it up to you.) That's me on the mechanical bull showing how it's done.

You remind me of that Lily Tomlin character in "Laugh In" who used to beat up men in the park who sat on the bench next to her. "You masher!!"

The Bonester's no patronizing sexist!! I'm not like the Mexican guys in my neighborhood who don't let their broads out of the house. I let my old lady out of the kitchen just the other day, to buy me a bag of chips for Wrestlemania.

So you don't know what you're talking about, toots.
