I usually don't pass along these "add your name" lists that appear in my email, but this one is too important.
This one has been circulating for many, many months, and I certainly don't want to break the chain.
Please, keep it going!
To show your support for Hillary and encourage her on her run for Queen of the United States in 2008, please add your name to the rapidly growing
list below and send it on to your entire email list.
Bill Clinton (slick Willie) interviewed by Barbra Walters (Bahwha Wahtas) - BrotherMalcolm interjects
Barb: If his wife wins the 2008 presidential election, would the former president sit in on cabinet meetings?
Slick: "Only if asked," Clinton told Walters. "And I think it would only be wise if it were on a specific issue. I think it's better for me to give her my advice privately most of the time."
BrotherMalcolm: So you would be off the "hands-off type"? In the White House. Hands off.
Barb: "Mr. President, is your wife really smarter than you are?"
Slick: "About some things". "We have different kinds of intelligence. She has a great organizational intelligence, and we've always worked well together. … I said the other day -- we celebrated our 32nd anniversary -- I'd rather spend the night talking to her than anybody I can think of."
BrotherMalcolm: Just talking. At night. With her.
Glad you actually said that Bill. I sure having sex with her that one time (daughter) must have been miserable. All I would do is talk to her as well - that is why there are interns right?!
Clinton said that before Hillary decided to run for president, and if the laws were changed, he might have liked to run for a third term in the White House.
Slick: "I loved being president," (Chicks all over the place!) "I loved it. And I thought I was well-suited (or unsuited) to the time."
The man some (media left) call the rock star (porn star?) of American politics hasn't lost his magic touch (no comment).
Since leaving office just six years ago, Clinton has become a kind of global expeditor (exhibitonist?), traveling to more than 84 countries (sans wifey)...
Barb: Should Hillary win, would Clinton be willing to take on traditional "first spouse" duties, such as the annual Easter Egg Hunt and the White House Christmas decorations?
Slick: "You know, I'd actually like doing that, ( I love chasing down young chicks with eggs) "
Barb: Would this former president welcome the title of first gentleman?
Slick: "I really don't care what I'm called," Clinton said. "I got to be president for eight years. People can call me whatever they want."
BrotherMalcolm: Noted - but we already do!
While the Clintons talk many times each day, Bill Clinton said they don't get to see each other as much now that the campaign is in full swing. (did they use the word "swing"?!)
Barb: Has the heart surgery changed you?
Slick: "I think it's made me a little more mellow". "I notice how the air (hair?) smells...". "Those things mean something to me again, like they did when I was a boy -- just the rhythms of life. So I both love the small things more, and I sweat the small things less." (I am no longer a big boob man?)

"Silly Libtards, winning's for heteros!"
My second favorite from the article is:
"DEMOCRATS: WE MAY BE LOSING THE LOSING OF THE WAR IN IRAQ, BUT WE ARE WINNING THE WAR ON CHRISTMAS!"

Yeah, the French and their culture sucks, but not because of the new régime. Sarkozy is trying to correct some of the ills of the nation of ingratitude There are old beliefs that limit the French. One of them is that they have the language that is pure. Latin is a pure language. It is pure because it does not change. Latin was once the language of the educated. Charlemagne (Charles the Great) was crowned Imperator Augustus by Pope Leo III in 800 AD. The Frank language began as a language of importance between areas of Western Europe (basically anything north and west of Rome). Frank (French) became the language of diplomacy and the educated, and the arts and cultures began to shift toward the Franks. Things do change (Battle of Tours, 100 year war with England, etc.). After having been liberated, twice, from becoming a German domain, there still seems to be the sense of world importance that many in France, and the copycat Quebec, hold. There remain many that believe that the French language and culture is pure and should not be altered. When any culture remains stagnant, the culture will begin to die. This helps explain why the French have reacted to this article in the Telegraph regarding the lack of cultural achievement. “The old guard dies but never surrenders” –one of Napoleon’s generals on June 18, 1815, to the Duke of Wellington’s demand for a French surrender at Waterloo. We all know who won that battle. Time will tell what Sarkozy can do.
- His approach to Healthcare reform has been one that uses private industry and a system of incentives and penalties to get people to get their own health insurance vice having big-government ruin the greatest healthcare system in the world.
- A track record of being fiscally responsible in government.
- Supports a buildup of America's defense, and actually has a concrete plan as to what he wants to do.
- Understands, unlike some candidates, that America's homeland security is best decided somewhere other than America--our responsibilities don't end at our borders.
- Flat out states without whitewash that "Jihadism – violent, radical, fundamental Islam" needs confronting.
- Recognizes that the evils of Communism are still alive and well in Latin America, and that America needs to keep fighting the good fight lest is spread.
- Wants Energy Independence for America, and recognizes that nuclear power is a key part of the alternative energies we will rely on in the future. He states energy independence is a national security imperative.
- In favor of the Line Item Veto and strict limits on government spending and a Supermajority requirement to raise taxes.
- "We must secure the border, implement an enforceable employer verification system, punish sanctuary cities and reject amnesty if we are to restore Americans’ faith in the rule of law."--'nuff said about illegal immigration.
- "We must promote a culture of life, protect America's children, and stop the erosion of America's basic freedoms."
Keep in mind that as much as this sounds like a plug, Too Much Liberty doesn't actually get paid to advertise for candidates--not that we are opposed to the idea, mind you :) but so far we are as objective as a logical person can be.
So, can anyone point out some weaknesses or flaws? Particularly if we have any readers from Massachusetts that might have first hand observations about his governing style. Any CON's would be gathered and put into a follow on CON post.
So far, though, he kind of sounds like he might be a better candidate for me.

I'm offended by "Happy Holidays". I only celebrate one "holiday" (by the way, holiday is a combination of the words holy and day) in December--Christmas. The suggestion that I practice pagan rituals, Islamic kowtow-ing to Mecca, or Kwanzaa, a make believe holiday, invented in 1966, offends me.
Besides, do those people buy Christmas trees or gifts?
I understand that Jews celebrate 8 days of gift giving during Hanukkah, and honestly, as a Christian who understands the roots of Christianity is founded in Judaism, I don't mind being wished a happy Hanukkah any more than I would get offended if someone wished me a Happy St. Patrick's Day. Jesus probably spent many a happy winter evening playing with a dreidel like other little Jewish kids. Besides, at least some people haven't gotten away from multiple days of gift giving! Other than that, however, who else is doing holiday shopping?
It turns out that only 1.6% of American families practice a Kwanzaa observance, and most of them already celebrate Christmas anyhow, so you probably won't offend them.
You are offending me, however. This year my family and I aren't shopping at any store that doesn't advertise Christmas. If it's a "holiday" flyer, it goes in the trash with nary a look. Christmas? Let's take a look.
Remember this, retailers, by trying not to offend the 4% of Americans that do not celebrate Christmas, you may be offending the other 96%
Check out this video that captures my feelings exactly...
