McCain and Mrs. Clinton.

In a boozing contest!

AND: Holy Mel, DUI.

UPDATE: Here's the NYT article that was referred to in that first link. Excerpt:
Mrs. Clinton and Mr. McCain... share... a general approach to politics. Both strive to be seen as willing to break with ideological orthodoxy from time to time and to work across the aisle. Both emerged from nasty political battles — Whitewater and her husband’s impeachment in her case, the 2000 Republican primaries in his — declaring their hatred of the “politics of personal destruction,” as former President Bill Clinton called it.

“They would run a completely different campaign than we’ve seen in recent memory,” said Marshall Wittman, a former aide to Mr. McCain who has worked with Mrs. Clinton.

“Both of them realize there is a desire in the country for a different politics of national unity that transcends the current polarization,” Mr. Wittman said.

Good for them! I would never in a million years have guessed she would go along with such a thing, let alone suggest it. Is it weird that this makes me like her a little bit? Does that indicate something wrong with me?

Oh, wait. Alright, the cynic's back. She did this to make me like her. So calculating.

Jennifer, you figured out her devious plan. Thank God for all those other politicians who don't calculate how to make us like them.

Ummmm....concerning Mel, if you click further to this link

http://www.tmz.com/2006/07/28/gibsons-anti-semitic-tirade-alleged-cover-up/

you get a report that he was spewing anti-semitic abuse.

The report says Gibson then launched into a barrage of anti-Semitic statements: "F*****g Jews... The Jews are responsible for all the wars in the world." Gibson then asked the deputy, "Are you a Jew?"

Should I be taking this as accurate information???? Say it ain't so......

Everybody knows that McCain is auditioning vice-presidential hopefuls. The smart money's on Lieberman to drink Hillary under the table, any day of the week, with one hand tied behind his back. And after he's won, he'll take off his clothes and dance on a table. Yee-ha!!!!

Jennifer said...

Oops, Elizabeth. And here I thought this was post was about McCain and Hillary.

Now, is it just posts about specific politicians where we're restricted to commenting on politicians in general. Or is that all posts?

Will the democrats come up with a candidate who can be liked outside southern New England?

Elizabeth said...

Jennifer, how is my comment restricting yours? Explain, please.

Wasn't it a movie about a 70s guy with big hair and a beard who travels back in time to open a whorehouse in the Old West with a hot opium-addicted 70s British babe? And then Michael Murphy shows up in a big fur coat and is mean. And then he leaves and his mean friends show up and are even meaner. (One of them kills poor Keith Carradine who just wants to get laid!) And a sad hippy song plays the whole time. And the cast of the movie "M.A.S.H." is there for some reason too.

Johnny: Well described! We need to redescribe more movies. By the way, my mother's maiden name is Beatty.

Thank you. I love "McCabe & Mrs. Miller." But I love to make fun of it too.
