Here Comes The Scam

I have believed for many months that Hillary Clinton was going to be the eventual nominee to represent the Democratic Party in the 2008 presidential election.

I have said that she will not actually win the nomination, but that the power-brokers in Washington (the Bush family and friends, the Clinton family and friends, the Diebold Corporation, Howard Dean, and other election powerhouses) would simply do for Hillary that which was done for George W Bush in Florida in 200 and Ohio in 2004: they would rig the process to ensure that the candidate most appealing to the conservatives would win. In 2008, that candidate is Hillary Clinton: champion of corporate interests, anti-labor hero, and homophobe supreme.

Clinton has packaged herself as a liberal for many years, but her positions on the issues are the positions of a conservative.

She is losing the race to become the Democratic nominee to Barack Obama. Her momentum was dead in the water, then she won a couple of states that use Diebold voting machines (including Ohio, which has been devastated by her support of NAFTA), and her campaign is re-born. Now the chairman of the Democratic Party wants to change party rules to allow her to get the delegates from Florida and Michigan, which states have had their delegates nullified for breaking Party rules. When Clinton was the front-runner, she wanted those states punished for their rules-breaking; now that she can win by manipulating their delegates, she wants them reinstated.

Things are bad. Things are worse than we think.

Howdy, Old chum. How's you? So Hillary re-emerges. Really not sure how to feel about this. She's a bit right for a leftie, is she not? But isn't Barack even further right? I don't know. Whichever, the sooner you guys get that fucking Bush out of the White House the better. Then you've got a chunk of PR to do. America's stock has sunk to an all-time low. We need you to be credible again and I feel that maybe Barack could restore some dignity. The Home of the Brave and the Land of the Free has been tarnished over the past 20 years or so. Reagan, Bush and more Bush. Clinton was so much better, but brought a lot of shite upon all of your heads, too, with his philandering. I hope and pray Barack Obama can give us all a fresh start. But anyway, how are you, my dearest friend? How does it feel to be f*fty? Mine is in a few weeks and I'm not looking forward to it. Planet Ink is beginning to look promising at long fucking last, Bright spots on the horizon, but my partner and I are completely impoverished through supporting the biz. We're knackered and poor but optimistic. Had a look at your wish list and spotted a book I've read there. Life: A User's Manual. Loved it and think I may still have it kicking around somewhere. If so, it will be in the post to you pronto. Over the last few months I have read some of the best books ever. We must chat about them. Love to Anne and Charlotte and you, Dicky Boy. Hope you're keeping well. XXX
