Should anyone criticize Hillary Clinton for continuing to pray at the altar of Bill Clinton? After over 30 years with this man, Hillary is still directed by the guiding principles of her beloved Slick Willy. Her mentor’s trajectory from inconsequential to infamous is legendary. Throw in a little impeachment for good measure, and you have the makings of one hell of an organizer.
Lies and deceit never far from his serpentine tongue, our 42nd President has slithered his way from late night Oral Office liaisons to parsing the word “is” for “is” sake. And while his wanton ways may have finally been put to rest, his “finger wagging” is still afflicted. To this very day, he crooks it with dramatic flair while demanding that the press corps cease to hold him accountable for every racial slur he strategically spews along his wife’s campaign trail.
When Wild Bill was facing his darkest days, the Clinton spin cycle churned out consolatory support and sound bites that “condemned the sin, but not the sinner,” and character imagery that labeled him the “traditional dirty old uncle you couldn’t help but love.”
However, not to be bogged down by the weight of one’s own dirty laundry (blue dress included), our former First Lady believes her time could be better spent airing the sullied tidy-whities of others! Hillary, always the Christian Soldier and equipped with political myopia, slogs through the current campaign battlefield with vigor and a renewed sense of short-term memory loss.
Most recently, she lashed out at her opponent by declaring she would have left her church if her pastor made the sort of inflammatory remarks Sen. Barack Obama’s former pastor made.
“He would not have been my pastor,” Clinton said. “You don’t choose your family, but you choose what church you want to attend.”
The question for Ms. Clinton is: “When are you going to stop attending the Church of the Holy Bubba?”
