Hillary Clinton Campaign Mad-Lib, Starring Adolf Hitler

This send-up of the Clinton campaign was written by James Adomian, an L.A.-based comedian who has been on Comedy Central. Dennis Perrin, a writer for The Daily Show, exposed it on his blog over the weekend. Adomian, known for his Bush imitations, adapted the German-language film 'Der Untergang.' Do not watch this clip if you are an ardent Hillary supporter, creative profanity shocks you, your bronchitis is acting up, or if you're eating.

This is a brilliant piece.

And regarding the Clinton campaign -- I don't know which is stranger, her denial of reality or the media's. It's a bizzare spectacle on both counts.

Oh, I should have posted the link here :)

Bruce,

bizarre it may be, yet it's completely consistent with their past behavior--they brazened out an impeachment 10 years ago, helping the Senate get out of the final vote by starting a "war."

Naj,

thanks, just got done reading Payvand. Great observations.

God, it made me choke I laughed so hard. Thanks for taking my place in the comedy blog category. From now on I'll stop here.

Hi Z&Me,

no, man, you ARE the comedy blog around these parts. But I'm glad you appreciated it. Btw I listened to Hillary's WV speech in the car, and was impressed. She struck just the right tone, was even conciliatory, and at the same time was savoring every moment of her victory. She did it right this time.

"they brazened out an impeachment 10 years ago"

True, but in that case, they had reality on their side -- the public knew impeachment was bogus and Clinton continued to have decent approval ratings throughout and left office with high a approval rating.

In this case, it is the Clintons in the Repub role, pressing on despite the obvious innanity and resulting public backlash and ridicule (except among "working class whites!"). That last parenthetical statement will be the legacy of Hillary's idiotic campaign, both because it is insulting to all blacks and to whites of modest means, and because it's a pathetic and entirely bogus lifeline to which she clings.

Bruce--

ah, some insightful discussion! Yeah, I guess you're right on the reality point. Still, they had already developed a strong siege mentality well before the full imbroglio, and it was Hillary who was most responsible for it. She's the one who hid the Whitewater papers, and Bill co-opted the Pug "fuck the welfare moms" agenda after the Dims got blown out. So they're no strangers to bogosity, and she's been a head case of the first order.

As for the media, these are the same cum-drooling gollum-wallahs that cheered on while the freak show stuck the country's unsheathed dick into Iraq's pox-ridden ass. That was when my bizarrometer pegged its needle.

To your last graph, I know exactly what you mean, and had the same thoughts as I was typing earlier. The only reason the glass on my TV is still intact is because I enjoy my Netflix subscription too much. But I learned an election or two ago to avoid the "news" shows, so that helps as well. Now I hit Google News everyday for my update on "reality."
