Congrats to Hillary Clinton: She’s become everything she said she was fighting against when Nixon was in the White House. She was either a liar then or a hypocrite now.

If I had to pick one, I’d pick liar and hypocrite.

Maybe when she runs for president 2016, she can help herself in the polls and go on Letterman or the Tonight Show or Jon Stewart and talk about whether she wears Obama’s boxers or briefs for him.

It could help her. The press would just love it.

You see Hillary and Barack can do no wrong.

Because, like DC Mayor for Life, Marion Barry, (read about Marion Barry here) Hillary and Obama have constituencies that will support them no matter how much crack cocaine, or how many prostitutes- figuratively or literally- turn up.

These constituencies include members of the press. 

I’d extend my congratulations to Marion Barry Obama too, but I have no idea what he wanted to grow up to become. He either wanted to become the prime minster of Indonesia, the premier of China or the chief community organizer for the first country ever run by ACORN.

“The problem is that I’m the president of the United States,” Obama told a group of kids recently in frustration. “I’m not the emperor of the United States. My job is to execute laws that are passed.”

Yes, that is quite a problem.  

It’s much nicer when you can bend a few laws since you can get away with it as emperor de jure, thanks to the press.

You become emperor de jure when you know that no matter how outrageous your behavior, how reprehensible your conduct, no matter how much contempt in which you hold the media, they will never say a thing.

Just a reminder to all the folks in the media that it’s not a Vast Right Wing conspiracy theory if it turns out that a hypothesis is true. Obama's out to get you and you and you and me.
