Yeah, I know. Anyone can have ridiculous and painful pictures taken in an instant.
But Hillary Clinton showed up on Tim Russert's Meet The Press show this a.m.
(I really hate that they have an ugly logo on the base of the screen, when the entire back wall is plastered with the name of the show.)
The word "overkill" comes to mind.

I have been trying to avoid saying very much about the Dumocrat candidates. With one exception, that is.
But something really stood out in this interview. I should have counted, but, as usual, the idea came to me half way through the interview.
Now, without looking back, how many times has the word "I" been used in this post?
It is realised here, that a blog is a very personal thing and one should be allowed certain leeway. It's our contribution to the egotism pool after all.
If you watch that video, you can count the "I's". And then reflect on this: You have to have an enormous ego to even consider running for President. (As well as enormous money for the campaign. But that's another post.) If that were the only consideration, I think Hill would get the nod from the populace.
But, after Hillary's (some say faked) breakdown into tears on national television in front of God and all, the thought occurred to me about the Russian ICBMs being shipped into Cuba and what JFK did about it. The pressures on him were enormous. World War III was on the brink of breaking out if he did not handle it correctly. He was a combat warrior who had his PT boat shot out from under him and knew what war was all about. Whether you liked him or not, you had to admire the way he handled the situation.
Hillary, on the other hand, is as blind as Dubya about real war. Neither she nor her husband have ever experienced it up close and ugly.
I got thinking about what if she had been President then? Would she have broken down into tears in the War Room? On television? In the Oval Office?
Any possible chance of my voting for her disappeared with that episode.
Menopause is a bitch.
One final thing (for now, anyway) was her non reaction when her Hubby said that oral sex isn't real sex.
I tried telling that to a young lady after the Clinton episode. You can use your imagination about what she told me.
