A Cartoon is Worth....
The most viewed article on WaPo this morning is about.... guess.
Harry Potter? Close. Barry Bonds? Now you're way off base.
The excesses of the Bush administration and their fear tactics? No....
Give up?...... It's "Hillary Clinton Tentative Dip Into New Neckline Territory."
Yep. "News," or what people are interested in, is getting sillier and sillier.
And, "cartoons" like the one at the top of this post are left to remind us of the unfunny realities of life under the rule of King George the Arrogant.
But, in all fairness to WaPo, the Hillary report was in the style section. Although the Harry Potter story was "above the fold" on their website "front page."
The account of Hillary's modest display of cleavage while speaking on the Senate floor plunged right past the subject of her discourse, the bosomsome.... er, burdensome cost of higher education, to a runway description of her attire. Not a stitch was dropped.
Perhaps the most interesting part of the piece related the fact that until the early 1990s women weren't "allowed" to wear pants on the Senate floor.... guess white male insecurities were showing.
Determined not to make fashion a distraction, (remember all of the interest in her changing hairdo?) Hillary launched her first campaign for Senate in what became her trademark unisex black pantsuit.
So, what is there left to say about the latest Hillary fashion statement except "you've come a long way baby!"
