OK, that’s a tag line, and not something that Mrs. Bill Clinton actually said.
She didn’t have to.
See, Mrs. Bill was supposed to appear today at a nonpartisan rally in New York City to protest the policies of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, the nutjob dictator of Iran. All scheduled and ready to be there, to take on the little tinhorn goofball.
And then, Sarah Palin got invited.
This rained on Mrs. Bill’s parade, and she canceled her appearance (then, to remain non-partisan, the organizers disinvited Sarah Palin). Why would Mrs. Bill pass on the opportunity to denounce this xenophobic madman? Because she’d rather stay silent than to share the stage with Sarah Palin.
Imagine that: rather than stand up against a Jew-hating, American-hating bigoted clown like Ahmadinejad, whose policies any/every true American ought to hate and oppose, she forfeited the opportunity for one reason and one reason only:
Mrs. Bill Clinton considers Sarah Palin a bigger enemy than Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
And my beef is that I believe that a significant percentage of the far-leftist Democrat Party feels the same way.
John McCain has drawn criticism–some from this blog–for his willingness to walk across the aisle and snuggle up with the Democrats on some pieces of legislation, etc. I disagree with him on many of those things, but I’ll say this for the man: as I quoted in a piece awhile back to this effect, John McCain spent several years in a military prison, tortured by the Viet Cong. Since McCain knows who the real enemy is, he doesn’t look across the aisle at fellow Americans and see the enemy. I must credit him with that perspective.
Sadly, it seems to be a perspective that many on the left including, apparently, Mrs. Bill Clinton, lack.
In case you’re wondering what Sarah would have said, the text of her speech is right here.
Unfortunately, our good Sarah is wrong about one sentence in her speech. When she assumed that Mrs. Bill would still be on the docket, Sarah wrote:
“Senator Clinton understands the nature of this threat and what we must do to confront it.”
No, Sarah, sorry; by her actions, Mrs. Bill Clinton proves just the opposite: regarding the threat from our real enemies in this world, Mrs. Bill has no clue whatsoever.
It’s just a good thing that she won’t be inaugurated President come January.
