Geraldine Ferraro's Blunder

Here we have the heretofore unreported real reason why Ms Ferraro was dismissed from Mrs Clinton's Presidential campaign:

"Former Congresswoman and Walter Mondale's choice for his Vice Presidential running mate in 1984, Geraldine Ferraro, pointed out in a speech that Barack Obama is Black saying: 'If Obama was a white man, he would not be in this position.' (She) was forced to step down from the Hillary Rodham Clinton campaign for those remarks, a decision which I wholeheartedly endorse. What she should have said was: 'If Obama WERE a white man.' It is that kind of grammatical error up with which I will not put."

We ought not place functional illiterates into positions of authority within our government. This may be the first thing Mrs Clinton has done right since becoming a public figure, and I hope it's the beginning of a trend.

Tip of the battered gray fedora to Chuck Muth.

Another failure of the government children's prisons.

Warm regards,

If she's going to set any trends, would be nice if she'd junk her socialized healthcare plans too. Probably asking for too much.

Are you sure you have the right picture on that button; looks more like June Cleaver from the Leave it to Beaver show to me...

According to her rhetoric, which she uses freely as if it'll be readily accepted by most, she plans to confiscate corporate profits, nationalize medicine and increase taxes. Because GW Bush is such a horrible administrator and such a spineless goof, he almost makes Mrs Clinton look good, in her posture of confidence.

McCain looks, to many, as if he'll be a continuance of GWB, and thus Mrs Clinton, if she can get past Osama Obama (Ted Kennedy's appellation, not mine), she'll put up a very good fight against McCain. She'll likely win, as conservatives don't think McCain is a conservative, and everyone else thinks he's Bush III.

As I recall, she was sold as a sort of a Mrs Cleaver type.
