Billionaire bitch Nutmeg Whitman, pictured above with her Repugnican buddies John McCainosaurus, Jeb Bush and Mitt Romney at a fundraiser in April, thinks that she can pit Demorcatic icon Bill Clinton against Democratic icon Jerry Brown. She won’t succeed in using Bill Clinton as a wedge, and her multiple lies about Jerry Brown’s record only underscore the fact that she has no fucking record of public service of her own.
Bill Clinton is in the news today. I wish that he’d just go the fuck away. But, true to his baby-boomer blood, he refuses to retire from the spotlight.
You’d think that after he had an intern give him head in the Oral — er, Oval Office, he’d have disappeared from public view in shame. But he knows no shame.
Bill Clinton resurfaced in a television commercial put out by billionaire Repugnican California gubernatorial Nutmeg Whitman in a rehashed clip of a television debate with Jerry Brown during the 1992 contest for the Democratic presidential nomination.
Clinton’s accusations against Brown in the clip from 1992 (“He raised taxes as governor of California. He had a surplus when he took office and a deficit when he left. He doesn’t tell the people the truth”) are wrong, according to The Associated Press, which today noted:
The source of Clinton’s criticism [of Brown in the 1992 clip] was a CNN report by Brooks Jackson, who issued a statement over the weekend on Factcheck.org saying he had mischaracterized Brown’s record on taxes.
“Brown is right; I made a mistake in my 1992 report,” Jackson wrote.
Specifically, Jackson said he picked the wrong year in concluding that California’s state taxes were higher when Brown left office than in his first year.
The Associated Press also notes that “As governor from 1975 to 1983, Brown built the state’s surplus to $6 billion, but he and the Legislature spent much of it — about $4.4 billion — bailing out local governments and schools after [the school-tax-cutting] Proposition 13 passed.”
But Team Nutmeg has decided to run with the clip of Bill Clinton misspeaking on or lying about Brown’s gubernatorial record even after Clinton’s intentional or unintentional inaccuracies in the clip have been demonstrated.
Because there is Democratic Party icon Bill Clinton criticizing Nutmeg’s Democratic opponent Jerry Brown (even if Clinton is lying or mistaken), and Repugnicans gladly will shamelessly lie if they perceive that enough voters will buy it.
Of course, most of the fucktards who would vote for Megalomaniac Whitman hate Jerry Brown and Bill Clinton anyway, and California’s solid Democrats aren’t going to be swayed by a Nutmeg Whitman ad that attempts to pit Bill Clinton vs. Jerry Brown. Brown has solid Democratic support here in California.
Even so: Fuck Bill Clinton anyway.
He was a shitty president.
Clinton counter-criticizes those of us of the professional left, bragging about his having created a “Third Way,” which amounted to little more than the creation of Repugnican Lite that plagues us to this day in Barack Obama’s Clintonesque/milquetoast administration. And if Clinton’s “Third Way” was the way to go, why was the 2000 election so close that the BushCheneyCorp was able to steal it? (Did Bill Clinton the horndog invent the three-way, too, I wonder?)
And who was it who said that every time that a Democrat acts like a Repugnican, the voters will go ahead and vote for the Repugnican?
That’s about all that we’ve learned from Bill Clinton, who sorely needs to take up golf.
I don’t mind still hearing from Jimmy Carter, who at least didn’t have sex with any intern, that we know of — and who stuck to his progressive guns, even if it cost him re-election.
But sellout Bill Clinton sucks ass, and it’s long past time for him to take a long nap on a big bed of mothballs.
And Nutmeg Whitman — what a God-awful pathetic excuse for a human being. It’s not that hard for her to dredge up some negative TV clip regarding Jerry Brown because Jerry Brown has served the state of California for several years. He has a record that someone like Megalomaniac Whitman — who has no fucking political record to speak of (except for the fact that she is approaching the highest amount of personal funds ever spent on a poltical campaign, more than $100 million thus far and behind only New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg) — can distort.
Nutmeg hasn’t held a single elected office, not even city council member, and most of the time she can’t even be bothered to vote.
If Californians are stupid enough to elect Nutmeg Whitman on the heels of Repugnican gubernatorial disaster-movie star Arnold Schwarzenegger — who is more moderate than is Nutmeg — then they deserve the even bigger disaster that they’ll get.
P.S. I’m so sick of the Clinton Dynasty that I gave Barack Obama money primarily during his primary campaign fight against Billary Clinton in order to knock her out of the race. And it’s too bad that he made her his secretary of state. We’ve had enough of the Clintons.
