Can Clinton blunt Palin?

I don't care what she does, as long as she stays better looking than my wife, she's got my vote.

Blunting Hillary was all Turdblossom Rove was going for when he helped Gramps shorten that short list to just Palin. Rove did recall that middle aged male coots did not support Hillary, despite that 18 million cracks in the glass ceiling. So, now was Gramps' chance to lure away the disgruntled faux feminists, while simultaenously raising the, er, uh, interests, yes, captivated interests of a politically indifferent constituency of criminally lascivious numbskulls who will be voting with their johnsons in November. After all, these cluelessly uninformed rubes see a war hero and a pretty lady versus this scary black muslim antichristian terrorist and some old European New England elitist know-it-all blowhard.

Well, that ridiculous plot has since backfired, primarily because Hillary is now only running to be re-elected to the Senate in New York in 2010. The truth is that Hillary was never on Obama's short list of running mates for this election, a fact that ought not come as a shock to anyone who recalls the rollercoaster ride we fondly call the Democratic Primaries. The problem for Team Grampers, though, is that Hillary has not given them a whole lot of ammo to use against Obama and Biden from picking the low-hanging Palin fruit. Hillary has only recently made any public comments on Palin. Hillary is doing everything right not to engage in any of Grampers political MILF-wrestling games. Why should Hillary succumb to donning the pasties and gold lame thong just to help legitmize Palin's ineptitude in a public forum? Hillary lost the nomination for the Presidency, which is punishment enough. Meanwhile, Palin has gotten to be a bad joke that is slowly railroading the GOP's ticket into infamy.

The shameless, gameless Team Geezer-Teaser 2008 would have the world believe that Biden is going to bow out to make Hillary happy. The reality, however, is that now his lipstick laden barracuda has to debate Joey "The Shark" Biden, ladykiller gray shark of the Atlantic north. I sure hope Gramps' barracuda has a few well crafted excuses that will permit her to snake out of that ritual debate sacrifice. Otherwise, the bitter end of her political career will have nothing to do with getting perp-walked for abuse of 21 months power fecklessly executed from the Alaska Governor's Office.
