If Hillary is the surprise DNC speaker…

…I’ll try to look surprised.

If Obama announces she’s the VP, I’ll try to look shocked.

Surely the only person on Obama’s staff who thinks Biden is an asset is Obama.  Given his recent gaffes, I’m not sure Biden thinks he’s an asset.  He sounds more like somebody trying to get fired.

Next question….where in the world did the Democrats come up with the idea of Hillary as a savior?  The same place they came up with the idea of Obama as one?

In the order of succession

(This was originally drafted back in March.  Since then we’ve had the Congolese hissy fit, the dancing State Dept gigolos and a few other high points on the watch of the sure to be [almost] first woman president.)

I’ve been writing too much about Dear Leader lately.  Perhaps I should give him a breather.

Let’s start talking about his illustrious subordinates.

Question:  Who came up with the idea that Hillary Clinton would be a good Secretary of State?

Answer:  The same person who thought that Joe Biden could be vice president and not embarrass the administration daily.

Hillary’s diplomatic experience:  None.  Executive experience (SoS is a management position): None.  Accomplishments not tied to being Bill’s wife:  None.

Congress can limit the president’s domestic agenda.  While Pelosi/Reid are without shame in their desire to rule like commisars, there will be enough blue dog democrats to start imposing some constraint as the public begins to realize the scale of the Left’s dementia.  But on the diplomatic side, international relations, Congress can do little.  If Congress turns over completely in 2010, the House veto proofed and the Senate filibustered proofed, there’s little they can do on the diplomatic side. I have no doubt that the perception of the US will change over the next four years.  It won’t be for the better.

I have no sympathy for PM Brown who was ‘dissed by Obama when he came to pay homage.  Brown shamefully made no bones about his preference for Obama and his disdain for Bush, for which Bush repaid him by maintaining absolutely proper diplomatic protocol and decorum at all times.  Same for all the other Euroweenies who thought it would be so wonderful to have a teleprompter reader as President of the US.  I am so looking forward to when they start making comparisions with Colin Powell and Condi Rice.

Why do people think she’s smart?

…or even competent.

I’ve been countering for some time the PR campaign that convinced half the country that Obama was some superhuman intellectual when in fact he is an imaginationless dogmatic liberal working straight from whatever leftist playbook he happens to have read last.

Allow me now to shine the light on another falsely anointed “genius”, Hillary Clinton.  Most people have heard about her shameless childish rant in the Congo last week.  And of course, the liberal press that has carried her water since Bill became president is trying to spin it to blame the person who asked the question.  But let’s get back to basics.  What qualified her for the job of Secretary of State and why did she take the position?

Clinton has zero diplomatic experience.  Meeting with diplomats spouses and having pictures taken with the kitchen staff while dodging imaginary bullets at the airport do not make a person a diplomat.

Smart?  She was one of five partners at the Rose Law Firm.  Four of them became convicted felons while she worked at the office, yet she didn’t know anything illegal was happening.  She didn’t know anything was happening.  She claimed to be ignorant of even the legal activities going on in the office, admitting that she put her name on legal documents sight unseen that had been prepared by legal aides.  Why did she sign them then?  Because then the firm could then charge partner rates for the services done by underlings.  She cheated her clients.  How do you bribe a sitting governor?  Pay a retainer to his wife’s law firm.  She gets a piece of the action that goes right to the governor’s mansion’s bank account.

Smart?  She hamfisted the 1st War On Healthcare in ’93.  She ran for senator solely on her husband’s name in a state she never lived in before because she knew she didn’t stand a chance in any state that had had anything to do with her.  She blew the presidential nomination after running for president for almost ten years because she thought it was about the Clinton popularity polls and not getting delegates at the convention.  Then she gave up a secure senate seat to become her arch nemesis’ secretary.  I wonder if he makes her get coffee.  I wonder if he makes her get under the desk?  (OOHHHH!  I didn’t say that.  I have to go pour Draino in my mind’s eye.)  Did she think becoming Secretary of State would give her a platform to run for the presidency again?  Obama offered her that position to bury her.  Yeah, I can barely open my eyes in the presence of such brilliance.

Now on top of that we can add harpy.  Shrill, egotistical harpy.  Should we really be surprised that she compares US presidential elections to African kleptocracies.  Yeah…smart diplomacy.  After she leaves the room, Obama can’t be anything but an improvement when he hands out iPods of his own brilliant speeches.  GAWD, we’re in the best of hands.

The good news.  These were the two best minds in the Democratic quiver.  And the press accuses the Republicans of lacking leaders?
