Bill Clinton Triggers Boston Requirement

Clinton in The Hill, emphasis mine:

Former President Bill Clinton said Sunday that the Tea Party movement “reflects the feeling of a lot of Americans that they’re getting the shaft,” but isn’t clear what it stands for.

We closed our eyes this past century, and liberty has slipped away. Getting the shaft? It’s more than a feeling.

    Definitely have a case of Clinton burnout.

    I’m with Janelle. If the entire Kommunist Klinton Klan were to crawl back into their hole and never do or say anything newsworthy again for all eternity, I would still have heard far more of and from them than I find palatable.

    Clinton loves turning the screws on Obama, doesn’t he.

    And talking about songs (this is worth posting again):

    That curly 80’s hair.
    That virginal seductive stare
    that strips my conscience bare
    it’s witchcraft.

    Castle had Cooms has no defense for it.
    The tea is too intense for it.
    What good would commonsense for it do?

    ‘Cause it’s witchcraft!
    Tea Party witchcraft.
    And although I know it’s strictly taboo

    when you arouse the need in me
    my heart says “yes indeed” in me
    Proceed with what you’re lead in ‘me to!

    It’s such an ancient pitch
    but one I wouldn’t switch
    ‘Cause there’s no nicer witch than you!

    To his credit, Patterico is now directing fire down range. We should encourage him and thank him for that. Cooms is into burgermeister-meisterburger corruption against dissent in Delaware (this sounds like Jersey politics if you ask me). And now apparently Cooms said to Kossacks that they have to defend “Biden’s Seat.” Hmmm, defending seats, where have I heard that before?

    Clinton has the most empathetic attitude possible by liberals for non-liberals, which is that non-liberals are not actually evil, they have legitimate concerns but are just wrong. This has never been a common attitude among liberals and is now limited to him alone. Still he can’t get away from the feelings thing, and he can’t admit there is any factual basis for concern.

    […] clear.  Jon Stewart loves Bill Clinton.   I mean he’d give him the full Stacy McCain Full Metal Jacket treatment if given the opportunity.  For those unfamiliar with what that means… Let’s just say […]

    Um…. did you mean the double entendre of sorts?

    On Sunday (the 26th), Bill Clinton will be in the Boston area, stumping for Barney Frank, who is facing opposition from Sean Bielat.

    Funny how all of these Presidential types feel the need to come to Boston to stump for Democrats….

    See, it’s not an explicit double entendre.
    Think of it as a kit handed to the reader.
    If you want to take it to mean something, fine, if not, fine.
    Interactive snark is fine snark, to me.
