Did the above photo and post inspire The Clintanos Spoof now running on Youtube?
They may have tons of political baggage, but you've got to admit they're smart!
In the above post the Weekly Green Planet complained (while posting the above photoshopped photo) that the New Yorker and Connie Bruck had conveniently, amnesiacally ignored a major Clinton scandal in doing its recent profile of L.A. Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa. We also suggested it was a self-interested 'oversight'. The New Yorker, we surmised, has reasons to keep its close ties to Bill and Hill.
But the photo hit home in so many ways. Like Carmela, Hillary is more admired and respected if less loved than her Mafioso husband. And Hillary has silently benefitted from his MacBeth-ian ruthlessness, overlooked his "whooring", hid the money -- Whitewater, the Rose law firm, the stock profits --and is every bit as tainted.
So, if you're a Clinton operative, what do you do to combat this? Remind people that you know and love these characters, flawed as they are. And do it first, before the opposition does!
That's what the Youtube "spoof" is about. It's phenomenal political theater.
Who knows, maybe Democrats "Don't Stop Believin'"and will take that Journey.
But it's a poor bet and a sure bumpy ride. So why, with Barack in the wings, or even John Edwards?
William Jefferson wasted four years of this planet's precious time explaining why he couldn't keep it in his pants and Hillary will spend four years jousting with a vast right wing conspiracy while making Margaret Thatcher look like the Ivory Girl.
The smart Dems are humming "Won't Get Fooled Again!"
