Hillary 2008 Watch . . . Off and Running . . .
Feathers McGraw at Penguin Proletariat has a good post up on Hillary’s latest Triangulation Tango — where she tries to say “I supported the war, buuuut I would have done it better.” I’m a hawk, but I don’t bite.
A lot of coverage of Hillary’s speech to the Aspen Institute last week, in which she mocked President Bush, comparing him to the Alfred E. Neuman cartoon character and saying his attitude is “What? Me Worry?”
But in the brouhaha over this allegedly funny remark, an important point has been missed. Frankly, I think the joke was a miscalculation on her part. Let’s get this straight: Hillary Clinton is implying that, as President, she would. . . worry more than President Bush?
Hey Hill. Not a good strategic move. I hate to be the one to say it, but. . . worrying is, well, kind of girly.
And speaking of girly! Hillary’s reelection (for Senate, natch) website is up at www.HillaryClinton.com. . .and. . .
For only $40, you, too, can own a Hillary t-shirt . . . get this: designed by Marc Jacobs. Kid you not. (Who is Marc Jacobs, you [male readers] ask? From Hillary’s site, he is: Creative Director of Louis Vuitton. . . who has “long been admired for his mix of extreme luxury and effortless charm. . . Jacobs is, according to American Vogue, “New York’s dauphin of grungy, understated cool.”)
Designer campaign t-shirts??! Gotta hand it to her.
