Hillary’s “Duty”?

WEDNESDAY 9-03-08…Watching Hillary pay her dues to Obama during her prime time speech reminded me of a hooker. The only difference is, a hooker demands payment in advance. Hillary wasn’t about to get her payment until AFTER she “performed.” The payment would be in the form of a check covering her campaign expenses.

Now, she’s done “her duty”….and she and Bill will fade off into the sunset…(each in different directions, of course.) And as the credits rolled on that closing scene in Denver, I’m reminded of those famous words of a REAL Democrat, former president Harry Truman. He said “My choices early in life were either to be a piano player in a whorehouse, or a politician. And to tell the truth, there’s hardly any difference.”

So now, as the Republican convention is about to wind up…. what follows will be a downright donnybrook between the winning candidates. We will be inundated by attack ads from both sides. Then there’ll come the “debates” which aren’t really debates at all; then the arguing over who won or who lost the “debates.”

By November, it’ll be OUR turn to go into the voting booth and make a decision as to who will run this country for the next four years. Columnist Charley Reese was right when he wrote “One hundred senators, 435 congressmen, one President and nine supreme court justices –545 human beings out of the 300 million in this country–are directly, legally, morally and individually responsible for the domestic problems that plague this country.”

If McCain wins, a democrat controlled House and Senate will do its best to make sure he doesn’t succeed. If Obama wins, poor people will still be poor. Poor people have been voting for democrats for the last fifty years, and they’re still poor.

…and four years from now, we’ll be doing it all over again.
