The Madonna Of Global Politics

The Madonna Of Global Politics

Hillary just so happens to be the most famous woman on earth. There are rumors galore that Barack wants her to be his Foreign Minister, and that she is eager for the job. I hope both rumors are true. There are also rumors she is smarter than Bill Clinton. We will find that out for sure after her eight years at the State.

Charlie Ranjail

The first thing I ever said to Dan Berger, Helpless Young White Male Dan Berger, was this: "So if Hillary becomes president, does Rangel become Senator?" That question might become of unexpected relevance soon even though Ranjail wanted Leecia Eve where Paterson is today. He disapproved of Spitzer's Paterson choice by derisively calling Spitzer "the smartest man on earth." Ranjail sure has made his contributions to the black people as dumb stereotype. But then Ranjail and Paterson's father were part of Harlem's Gang Of Four.

Watch Out For Ranjail

The dude is excited. Only a few weeks back he said he is going to get his money where Paulson got his money. The Democratic upswing that started in November 2006 shows all signs of going on for eight years straight. It does not have to end then. But if it ends it will be because Ranjail got his way and ushered yet another era of fiscal indiscipline to the Democratic ways. Get that guy out of Ways And Means. The tax thing did not do it. Maybe the Senator thing will.

Bill Perkins for Congress!

Bill Clinton, Racist?

By my very high standards yes, Bill Clinton is a racist. He was the most powerful person on earth, and he did not do zit for total debt relief for Africa. This white boy from the South has done a whole lot for Africa since he left the White House, but not quite enough.

McCain In The Cabinet

I propose we put him in some closet so I don't have to look at him. The dude did scare me in September. Looks like he scared more than me. Barack went on to raise $150 million that month.

The Four White Manhattan Organizations

DL21C, Drinking Liberally, DFNYC, MYD. There is a part of me that says avoid them all. Just stay away. They are all trouble. I am going to completely stay away from DL21C unless I am explicitly told by that organization that things have changed. Change? Ah, that Barack buzzword. I don't know about the other three either. Barack captured DL21C - I heard on the radio - but that might not be my story.

Do you think Justin Krebs harbors ill will towards me? Do you think Lewis Cohen will mind if I show up for his events? Al is not too fond of Dan. Maybe I can show up for MYD events, but I don't feel all that young. I got some grey in my beard.
