First, I want all you Uppityites to take one minute to bask. Hell, take an hour! Take your time, I’ll wait….
Meanwhile, the rest of you can go ahead and take all the time you need to suck lemons.
Yes, Hillary has now formally announced her candidacy for President of The United States. And this time, we’re Ready. Not only are WE Ready, so are plenty of her 2008 detractors in the Democratic Party. Gee I wonder why?
This is no longer a Race-Against-Gender race. Nor is it a Gender-vs-Gender race. Instead, it’s a race where we have the most qualified candidate who just happens to know more about our government than…well pretty much anybody, more about foreign policy than just about anybody, the Woman who repaired plenty of relationships around the world that were fractured by GWB. The Woman who knows policy like nobody else knows policy, and no matter how many times they trot out the Hillary Nutcracker, these things will not change. That’s what scares the detractors.
You are going to see plenty of the same-old-same-old remarks. Bloo Dress Bloo Dress! But take heart, friends. After decades of the same tired cartoons and remarks, it’s become a de-sensitizing experience. Remember this: Hillary Clinton in 2008 received more primary votes than ANY candidate in ANY primary, EVER. And that was in spite of all the vitriol, all the invectives and all the Nutcrackers. She has suffered those invectives throughout decades from threatened patriarchal dipwads, and she has survived to remain the most popular woman in the WORLD.
Now, a word about the media, where we have frightened men whose wives secretly support Hillary and jealous women who secretly declare “Why isn’t it me instead?”. Thus the misogyny and sexism in the press has been rampant for many years. Well, it’s going to be a lot more difficult for them to sprinkle their code words around this time, don’t you think? Their pants are down and it’s not pretty. And so, the media slaughterers of women in general and Hillary in particular might just have some very bright lights shining upon them this time around. I for one shall enjoy watching.
Let the race begin! Because it wasn’t a race until Hillary announced. That alone should tell you something.
P.S. For those of you who are secretly reading this blog, and there are so many of you, who have that easily recognizable Derangement Syndrome, I urge you to read this post before ever trying to comment here. This is a Hillary blog, it was always a Hillary blog, and if you don’t like it, Eff Off! Thank you so much!
Oh! And this one’s for you.
