A Few Things Ill Considered

Hilary Clinton in Tipless Waitress Scandal!!

Last Friday, I noticed a breaking story, potentially a huge media scandal, involving Democratic front-runner Hilary Clinton. What was it? Voter supression? Campaign finance fraud? Some ancient skeleton rattling free from her closet?

Not so much….

A waitress in an Iowa diner mentioned that she had not received any tip from when the Clinton campaign had her serve them lunch. Of course that turned out to not be the case, they had left a tip for all the staff with the restaurant manager and the waitress had not known that at the time.

So…phony and irrelevant event distracts the media…what else is new? What’s new is a little blunt honesty injected into the comotion by the waitress herself:

Ms. Esterday said she did not understand what all the commotion was about.

“You people are really nuts,” she told a reporter during a phone interview. “There’s kids dying in the war, the price of oil right now — there’s better things in this world to be thinking about than who served Hillary Clinton at Maid-Rite and who got a tip and who didn’t get a tip.”

She just forgets, as many of us often do, that the mainstream political media is simply living in a bizarro parallel universe where haircuts and lapel pins are more important than health care and warfare.

    Hillary supporters: listen folks, please don’t get discouraged. PLEASE. She is getting attacked from all sides because people deep down know she is our only hope for America and they’re trying to ruin it for everybody. Hillary is the ONLY candidate with these 4 attributes: honor, patriotism, loyalty, and kindness. I got $35 in the bank that says no other candidate has those attributes.

    @Vote: I got a hundred dollars that says she doesn’t. And a bonus hundred that says you can’t prove that you or I do, either.

    we cannot and we will not move forward until we are old enough to accept and to truly embrace a person of color and a person of female gender. this is not about who will just win it’s about who will stop the killing not the war because war is more than just war it’s a large part of our lives i lost my husband at an early age in viet nam 1966 he was (23) so yes bring them home no matter what GOD WILL DECIDE don’t give in to the media give in to the whole world we’re here also there’s no tears in baseball (smiles)
