Beat the drum, ’cause here comes….

null tip of the hat to Melvin for the shove in the right direction!

Hillary says:

I consider myself a thoroughly optimistic and modern progressive, and we need a new progressive vision for America.



This week (…) a White House spokeswoman uncharacteristically fired back at Clinton for, of all things, running a campaign ad in Iowa that (gasp!) criticizes President Bush. “If you’re a family that is struggling and you don’t have health care, you are invisible to this president,” Clinton says in the ad. “If you’re a single mom trying to find affordable child care so you can go to work, you’re invisible, too.”

Spokeswoman Dana Perino took the bait, dubbing Clinton’s ad “outrageous,” “absurd” and “unconscionable.”

Campaigning in Iowa, her most challenging early state, a “thrilled” Clinton heralded the White House response. “The White House just attacked me a few minutes ago,” she gushed. “Apparently, I’ve struck a nerve.” Clinton aides quickly flagged the White House comments on a campaign Web site,, and alerted reporters to Perino’s remarks.

And speaking of Iowa…..

From Newsday:

DES MOINES – It was Hillary and Rudy in the straw Wednesday, as the two New Yorkers running for president made their obligatory, and first, visits to the sprawling Iowa State Fair.

The potential rivals for the White House next year showed up just hours apart at the 240-acre fairground here, and in speeches and crowd-clogged tours of exhibits, booths and food stalls they displayed their own distinctive politics and styles.

In what could be a preview, the two New Yorkers disagreed on most everything, except for the need for energy independence and, later in their fairground wanderings, the wonder of a life-size cow made entirely out of butter.

How do you cook a cow made entirely of butter? In lard? And, speaking of lard, Dennis Hastert (R-IL) announced today that he would not run for reelection.

    Will this be Rudy’s breakout role?

    the reviews i read said that dana was so overdramatic that she overshadowed rudy’s attempt to convey his storyline as he perceived it–as one of a tragic heroine who valiantly rebuilds an entire city singlehandedly.
    p.s. you are the first recipient of the official agent 9999 tip of the hat thank you. that and about 5 bucks will get you a latte. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Oh! Rudy is just “too precious” in this poster! Where in the HELL did you get his face with that pose and expression?????

    This whole concept is beyond one funny, nonnie! I give it FIVE funnies out of five possible!

    the pic of rudy is from when he was cavorting with donald trump. if i remember correctly (what are the chances of that?), he was spraying perfume on his neck at the time the pic was taken. i don’t know what kind of perfume it was. perhaps poison? obsession?
    i get no credit for the movie choice. melvin alerted me to the fact that hillary said that she was thoroughly modern and suggested that there might be a movie poster in there somewhere. ๐Ÿ˜€

    Too much!

    Thoroughly Modern Millie was one of my favorite movies when I was a child. It sort of loses it cachet once you flaunt Rudy’s penchant for dress-up, though. Although he does look lovely there, just lovely….

    i think rudy is more suited for victor, victoria, but you make movies with the egotistical morons you have, not the ones you wish you had. that said, i gave rudy a makeover, and i think he owes me big time for making him look so damned good.
