A Funny Thing Happened on the way to the White House

The world is accustomed to stock plays and players. A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum is but a take on a play written in Rome by Plautus a couple of thousand years ago, and all the key players are stereotypes of characters we see over and again in theatrical comedies. Is there after all much space between Pseudolus, the hero of that hoary work, and Sergeant Bilko? In much the same way, the Clintons tend to be characters in a stock play that we’ve seen over and again for decades. The only question this time around is will there be a new ending?

    As was written in the New York Post, that funny thing was Obama trying to sabotage her candidacy.

      Actually it was Jerrett and I’m not sure her puppet Obama actually knew about it.

    The Cunning Vixen who was kicked off the Watergate investigation for being to conniving. Hasn’t changed, then?

      “We are just now finding out why Secretary of State Hillary Clinton ordered the Secret Service to install, monitor and protect her personal email account. A very similar activity happened in 1971 when then-President Richard Nixon ordered the Secret Service to install, monitor and protect the secret recordings of his phone conversations and White House meetings. That action lead to President Nixon’s 1974 resignation.

      Only time will tell if Hillary’s fear of the federal government and it’s probing eyes will lead to her early exit from the 2016 presidential race.”

      My reply: I am waiting for the many people who received her now-deleted emails to started trickling classified material from their harddrives to journalists and incriminating her. The scandal is going to grow and grow and grow.

      She was pretty upset about nixon deleting 18 minutes of tape but she deleted 30,000 emails.

    Have to have special email because can’t carry more than one cell-phone-like device? Even I, troglodyte that I am, have my semi-smart phone programmed to give me more than one email account. Okay, I had an offspring program it, but the analogy still holds: at that level, you have all your electronic devices coordinated. If your aides can’t do it, fire them.

      Mine has 3 email accounts – one for my business, one personal and one for a nonprofit I volunteer with.

    OK, kids, lets bake some cookies. Just stick your head into the oven to see if it’s hot enough, and we can begin…. cackle, cackle, cackle.

    Is Obama trying to clear the way for Mooch? No, seriously.

      No, his fellow Marxist Fauxcahontas.

    Do Americans seriously see this incompetant loser as their leader?
    Oh, wait a minute, there is a precident here….!!!!

    It’s often been said that Bill, the rogue that he is, is a likable person, politics aside. The kind of guy you’d have a beer with and even enjoy it. Hilary on the other hand is a nasty, bitching angry, arrogant, scheming woman whose ambition knows no bounds. Not one to be with on a night on the town. The picture at the top of the post fits perfectly.
