The best thing for Hillary's career ambitions at this point would be for Bill to die peacefully in his sleep and move on to the afterworld.

I don't see that as surprising. Hillary is nowhere near leftist enough for Madison. Of course the bumper sticker owner ( property is theft!) probably thinks freedom can best be summed up from each according to their ability, to each according to their need

Are you suggesting Bill is the main hindrance to her ascension? Not the nagging legal troubles? Not the years and years of shady behavior (Whitewater, Vince Foster, The Clinton Foundation, Web Hubbell, Benghazi and on and on)? Not her unsettling personality?

But you're probably right. If Billed dropped dead she'd get some sympathy, it'd humanize her I guess.

Curious George said...

No, look closer. That's an NRA PVF (Political Victory Fund) bumper sticker.

Meade said...

30% of Madison voters vote to the right of center.

If Bill dropped dead all those who he has coerced into supporting Hillary would head for the hills in an instant. If Scalia can do it why not Bill?

@ Ignorance is Bliss

The fine print says NRA-PVF 2016 Victory Campaign.

From their website:

"The NRA Political Victory Fund (NRA-PVF) is NRA's political action committee. The NRA-PVF  ranks political candidates - irrespective of party affiliation - based on voting records, public statements and their responses to an NRA-PVF questionnaire."

Meade said...

@Nonapod, yes, she'd get an overwhelming sympathy vote. Even staging his own death and disappearing until after the inauguration would do the trick.

"Meade said...

If this was true the fucker would already be Fort Marcy Parked.

Must be those Madison NRA commies...

Or it could be I was mistaken. Just this once.

All my rowdy, gun-totin' friends shop at Whole Foods. Those men eat, drink, and entertain magnificently. Nor do they allow their wives near the kitchen.

Tommy Duncan said...

Was the car "keyed"? The normal liberal response is to attack the object and inflict damage (as long as the gun toting owner is nowhere to be seen).

Whole Foods' owner is one of those creepy libertarians.

Quaestor said...

'Round these parts a .380 in a shoulder rig is just a fashion accessory.

One of my rowdy friends caught a female SWJ in the act of keying his Nismo GTR. He walked up to her with his jacket off, exposing his armed condition.

"Please don't arrest me," was her bleat.

Her husband coughed up for a thousand-dollar paint job to avoid a misdemeanor complaint against her.

It's gettin' real in the Whole Foods parking lot.

There are NO Clinton stickers in San Francisco, even among the usual suspects.
Nor even any signs in the windows, the San Francisco equivalent of yard signs (as there are few grassy front yards/lawns among these neighborhoods of tract houses and flats).
There are a few anti-Trump posters/signs.

Levi Starks said...

The mistake being grade by the taking heads on the right is that Trump could easily beat Bernie. I will admit to a certain feeling of glee at the prospect of seeing Hillary get dumped, I wouldn't 1)Be so certain that Bernie would loose, or that 2)Bernie would necessarily be the substitute candidate.

eric said...

I think Meade is right. Trump should offer Bill Amnesty. Give him a nice penthouse with lots of guards and a 24/7 watch.

Because Bill will need to go for Hillary to win. And if that's what it takes. Well.....

eric said...

Of course, Trump isn't about conspiracy. If Bill does die, Trump will say Hillary killed him. Or had him klled. Everyone will gasp and clutch their pearls and say, he can't say that!

But we will all sorta cock our heads and think, he's probably right.

eric said...

Isn't above....

Yes, Whole Foods lost their lefty street cred in the Obamacare debacle.

Perhaps there's no other place in Madison for organic quinoa?

traditionalguy said...

Trump has emboldened many people with open and unafraid freedom tp express themselves in speech. Hillary cannot keep people "On The Reservation" anymore.

Correction: The best thing for Hillary's career ambitions at this point would be for Bill to die under a hail of bullets fired by a 2nd Amendment myrmidon (the MSM will make damned sure of that). The benefits:

1) Instant martyr status for WJC

2) Instant bereaved widow status for HRC

3) Instant issue for a so far issueless campaign

4) Instant death of the Sanders campaign

What's not to love? Coming soon to a theater near you.

The only Trump bumper sticker I have seen in LA so far was on a Tesla.

Lots of Bernie stickers on little cars.

harrogate said...

Trump is actually a bigger threat to what these people are calling "freedom" than Hillary Clinton is. In the end his economic policies challenger the neoliberal model of "global free trade," and his foreign policy isn't adventurist either .

If Hillary Clinton is elected, Republicans will hate her because she's her, but they won't mind her approach to economics or foreign policy at all.

Quaestor said...

harrogate wrote: Trump is actually a bigger threat to what these people are calling "freedom" than Hillary Clinton is...

Such opinions are to be expected from when historical perspective is, if not totally blind, extremely myopic.

eric said...

Harrogate, you may be right about foreign policy and her stance on economics, although I doubt it.

But I don't care if you are. Not because I hate Hillary for being Hillary. But because of the Supreme Court. She will appoint another bloc voter for finding new laws always written in the constitution that no one ever noticed.

And this is the deal killer. Everything else can be stopped or blocked by Congress, except for immigration it seems.

So on two major issues, SCOTUS and Immigration, Trump beats Hillary and it's not even close.

I'd have demanded she key her own car as well.

YoungHegelian said...

Here in very blue & affluent Montgomery County, MD, I see lots of Bernie signs but few Hillary signs or bumper stickers. And, God knows, almost no Trump stickers (that would be an act of major courage!).

It's almost as if the Hillary supports, of which I'm sure there are many, are sorta ashamed of their choice. I'll tell you what I still see oodles of, however: Obama 2008 or 2012 bumper stickers. Folks still seem to be so proud of their dude in the WH. How, I don't know, but they are.

Quaestor said...

I don't know what the "key lady" drove. (I must ask my friend sometime.) I won't be surprised to learn it was a Prius.

Mike said...

We had a chance to stop Hillary. The GOP blew it by going with Trump, who makes the task much more difficult (and not necessarily desirable).

Gusty Winds said...

The Clintons have raised and paid good money for Hillary's nomination. Who knows, she may be so damaged a month from now, that the Superdelegates start getting nervous and consider switching to Bernie to face Trump. Doubt it, but who knows.

I think that would be bad for Trump.

After last Tuesday, the media moved on to the Hillary v Trump Thrilla in Manila theme. Bernie was cute, but since Trump had wrapped things up early, they needed to help her pivot.

But, Bernie has other plans, as do his supporters, and the people of WV. This is great.

BEST ELECTION EVER.

harrogate said...

Eric ,

I understand . But a Trump presidency , as much as I would hate it for many other reasons, would at least put what Republicans have been dismissing as "protectionism" back on the map as mainstream economics , and it's likely that the neocons would be left way out of the loop.

So those are consolations for liberals as I see it . Plus , his tax plan reportedly isn't nearly as regressive as some Republicans were hoping it would turn out to be .

"'Round these parts a .380 in a shoulder rig is just a fashion accessory."

A .380? What, you live in a gated community?

Michael K said...

"they won't mind her approach to economics or foreign policy at all."

I don't think so but then you are a Hillary voter and would be expected to say that.

" his tax plan reportedly isn't nearly as regressive as some Republicans were hoping it would turn out to be ."

More hope. Tax plans are no longer important to the economy except corporate taxes which are economic illiteracy.

What is important is the Administrative State the Democrats have created. It will kill the economy if left in place for four more years. It may, in fact, already be too late.

Re "creepy libertarians," to party-line "liberal" government sniffers and State fellators, anyone who thinks their lives and property belong to themselves and not to Big Brother is "creepy."

Now that you mention it, Ma Barker had to ditch her old man before the family hit the Big time.

furious_a said...

but they won't mind her approach to...foreign policy at all.

Unless they work in an embassy or consulate in a Hot Zone, or have family in the Ukraine.

furious_a said...

...and the people of WV. This is great.

Yeah, Effie Trinket was flummoxed that the people of District 12 didn't applaud.

I was being sarcasmic.

mikee said...

you can't blame Drudge for serial denunciation stories about Hillary.
This material writes itself, where Hillary Clinton is concerned.

Hillary - the Experienced Criminal

I think that would make an excellent bumper.

Achilles said...

It is funny that Trump destroying the GOP and splitting the GOP got all of the press.

It is nothing like what is going to happen to the Democrats. Bernie supporters are a majority of the party. The #NeverTrumpers were always a small and overhyped group. There are a lot more Bernie supporters and they hate Hillary and the Wall Street establishment just as much as the GOPe hates the average republican voter.

Kicking the Romneys and Bushes out of the GOP costs Trump maybe 5% of the party. We got far more than that picking up working class voters of all shades.

The bernie supporters are 50+% of the democrat party. And you should hear the 3rd party talk going on among them.

Bernie Sanders´ victory over Hillary Clinton in West Virginia was impressive not just for the lack of effort it required — he spent less than 20 cents for each vote — but also for voters´ eagerness to give it to him at this late stage of the Democratic presidential primary. Isn´t it supposed to be over?

Trump also spends about the same per vote, maybe even less. But the media cover him. It is even more amazing what Bernie does when the media refuse to cover him. If Hillary had won those two primaries, the news would have been full of triumphal coverage.

tim in vermont said...

If Hillary Clinton is elected, Republicans will hate her because she's her, but they won't mind her approach to economics or foreign policy at all.

Well, since here foreign policy and military "adventurism" have been marked by abject disaster, I have to question your premise. But I am sure you know what all the people unlike yourself are thinking. On the other hand, we Republicans have no idea what the fuck you might be thinking to support Hillary. We may have theories, but we know they are just speculation. Liberals, on the other hand, know *EXACTLY* what we Republicans are thinking at all times.

tim in vermont said...

Hillary Clinton was guaranteed to lose the heart of coal country in West Virginia´s Democratic primary election Tuesday. But third place in a two-person race? That was the judgment of Mingo County, population 25,292, which voted Huntington lawyer Paul Farrell second over the former secretary of state.

She cam in third in a two man race. It's sexism! That's what!

Rusty said...

"What is important is the Administrative State the Democrats have created. It will kill the economy if left in place for four more years. It may, in fact, already be too late."

This.
There should be more federal and state employees walking the streets than coal miners.
