Clinton-Press Relationship Is More Dysfunctional Than Your Tragic Marriage
Hillary Clinton continued the Enfranchisement Tour 2k8 today in South Dakota, which is fully franchised and will likely go for Obama on June 3 but doesn't matter. While there she visited the only "thing" in South Dakota: Mount Rushmore, where the rocks look like famous presidents. Look at Hilz in the picture, striking the pose as a park ranger fines her for littering. Maybe? Who knows what actuallyhappened during the stop, because the ABC News report is all about... well, the headline pretty much says it all: "Clinton Ignores Press at Mt. Rushmore." This article is delicious.
ABC News' Eloise Harper notes that she and the other traveling press had numerous questions for Hillary, who hasn't held a press avail since May 15 -- right around when the Clinton Bullshit Meter went cosmic, making Hillary incapable of responding coherently to any question about her latest "disenfranchisement" motif. But Ms. Harper clearly does not realize that Hillary has been on vacation since May 15!
Enjoying a lighter load on the campaign trail with two stops in South Dakota Wednesday and two stops Thursday Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton played tourist at Mt. Rushmore, ignoring questions and telling the press to "learn something about the monument".
Hillary's lighthearted condescension gives way to visible irritation:
While the New York senator enjoyed the site, she was surrounded buy a U-shape of cameras hoping to get a shot of her looking at the monument while a traveling staffer insisted on standing in front of the her to block the shot. When the staffer refused to move after many calls from the press and other staffers, Clinton turned around and said "this is a tourist occasion."
The press notices she's irritated and proceeds to fuck with her:
A reporter attempted to ask Clinton if she could see herself on the famous monument. Clinton just raised her hands in the air and said "I" and sighed. Another reporter asked "Do you think Bill Clinton should be up there?" Clinton didn't answer and said "why don't you learn something about the monument."
Then Eloise Harper asks Clinton "Hey Hillary, don't you think Kermit the Frog should be up there? Don't... [stifles a giggle]... don't you think... [cannot control laughter]... don't you think Lanny Davis should be up there?"
Hillary makes a few phone calls and responds, "Maybe you should check on your cat, Eloise."
