Speaking of Fairy Tales, Have You Heard the Latest About Hillary?

Satire by John Lillpop

Former President Bill Clinton recently kicked his spouse and presidential wanna be off the front pages with a few indelicate remarks about Barack Obama's presidential campaign being a "fairy tale."

Although the former president denied it, the remark suggested that any African-American foolish enough to aspire to the presidency was, in fact, living a fairy tale.

A delusion of grandeur, as it were.

Naturally, Barack Obama and his followers were outraged and hurt by Bill Clinton's insensitive jab at the Black Camelot.

Since then, of course, Obama has expanded his fairy tale by performing very well on Super Tuesday, followed by wins in Nebraska, Washington, Louisiana, and Maine.

Most significantly, Obama now leads Hillary in the all-important delegate count. Now that is some fairy tale!

Meanwhile, with Bill Clinton front and center, Hillary's campaign has all but collapsed, spiritually and financially.

Without Norman Hsu around to commit fraud on her behalf, Hillary has been forced to finance her folly with a personal check for $5 million dollars.

As it turns out, chasing fairy tales is quite expensive, especially if you happen to be an over 60 woman with disapproval ratings near 50 percent!

Obama, on the other hand, is on pace to raise $30 million in February alone.

More bad news: From the foxholes of the campaign war comes word that Hillary's campaign manager, Patti Solis Doyle, has been abruptly replaced.

Obviously, a sign of desperation for a campaign that may very well be on it's last legs.

Thus, what was once the "inevitability" of a Hillary Clinton presidency is quickly turning into a--well, a bit of a fairy tale, to borrow a phrase!

Although I am loathe to do anything that might help Hillary become Queen, I do have a suggestion that might just do that:

You need to get Bill out of the way, Hillary. Find him a toy to play with, a distraction that will keep his attention focused anywhere but on your campaign.

Why not hire a 30s something former intern with Oval Office experience, and the initials ML, to entertain Bill whilst you concentrate 24/7 on ruining America?
