In "The Wizard of Oz,”
Dorothy Gale (Judy Garland), Glinda the Good Witch, and all the
Munchkins exult in song as they celebrate the death of the Wicked Witch
of the East.
The Witch Is Dead" they sing, as Glinda pronounces that "a miracle
credits Dorothy with dropping a house on the bad witch, but
insists it was really "the wind” (the cyclone) that brought about the
Munchkins present her with a bouquet, as Glinda directs the little
creatures to tell eveyone that "the wicked old witch at last is dead!"
They gleefully comply – until, that is, a high official in the land of
Oz stops them cold to ask if she’s "undeniably and reliably dead." Only
when the coroner and mayor affirm the death do the Munchkins once again
burst into their Ding Dong song, adding a joyful, "Tra-la-la-la-la-la-la."
Could any recounting of
this episode from the 1939 movie be a more powerful metaphor for the
demise of Hillary’s presidential aspirations – from the Wicked Witch of
the East (New York) to "the wind” that obliterated the her (Obama’s
windy rhetoric of "hope” and "change”) to official doubt of the bad
witch’s death (the media’s dread of counting out Hillary because of
their longtime experience with Clinton wrath and revenge).
Could Harold Arlen –
who composed "Ding-Dong!
The Witch Is Dead" – ever
have envisioned that
nearly-70 years later his song would become an anthem to millions of
Americans who have yearned for the Clintons’ political demise?
Or should I say
hoped-for demise? The next horrific possibility is seeing Hillary
advertising for Kohler!
The Bathtub Scenario
Who can forget the
final scene in "Fatal Attraction”? As the maniacal Glenn Close character
slashes the Michael Douglas character across the chest and arm, he falls
wounded and bloodied into a water-filled bathtub. With difficulty, he
manages to get up and then kicks her against a wall, but she continues
He finally musters the
strength to push her into the bathtub and then holds her underwater. She
thrashes and flails, but a close-up of her hand shows the knife falling
to the bottom of the tub. Exhausted and blood-drenched, he slumps on the
tub’s edge, gasping and panting.
But she’s baaaaccckkk!
Rising from the bathtub, knife in hand, she makes it clear that she is
not to be bested! Only a bullet through her heart – inflicted by a deus
ex machina – finishes her off. Whew!
Hillary hasn’t yet
gone the bathtub route, but in the face of mounting defections from
former supporters, the impossibility of factoring into the plus side of
her ledger the "popular” votes from Florida and Michigan – and since
when do popular votes trump electoral votes? – increasing defections
from longtime supporters, and escalating cries for her to bow out of the
race gracefully, her obduracy in pressing ahead gives credence to what
radio talk-show host Michele Norris told Chris Matthews: "The only way
that Hillary Clinton can win is if she is willing to win ugly.”
Is It A Superiority
The liberal media have
told us for decades that Bill Clinton is the most brilliant,
charismatic, talented politician on earth.
I never bought it. What
I saw and heard from this emperor with no clothes was the very
embodiment of a terminally narcissistic, glib, spotlight-lusting,
self-serving machine operative – very akin to a Mafia underling – who
lied and cheated his way to become the boss of all bosses.
In the same way, the
liberal media have told us for decades that Hillary Clinton was "the
smartest woman in the world.”
I never bought it. What
I saw and heard from this empress with no clothes was a chronically
abused faux feminist with something of a multiple-personality disorder:
▪ The holy-roller
southern accent for black audiences.
▪ The beer-swilling
good-ole-girl with blue-collar workers.
▪ The gun-toting hunter
with NRA supporters, who she loathes.
▪ The God-fearing
Methodist who supports abortion and tolerates philandering, among other
reach-across-the-aisle senator with a machete in her hand.
▪ A racist who allows
and encourages her surrogates – including her husband – to play the
▪ The list goes on and
on and on.
But in the current race
– quashed by Obama by every measure – Hillary maintains her weirdly
manic smile, and a strange confidence that bespeaks a secret agenda.
Columnist George Will
suggests her motive is spite and sabotage. "Is she continuing her race
so as to have a platform from which to continue to bash Sen. Barack
Obama in the hopes of so damaging him that he can’t win the general
election…to drive a wedge between him and the voters he must have to
A few days ago,
longtime Clinton fixer Harold Ickes stated that Obama will be vulnerable
to an "October surprise” and inferred that it would destroy him. What
does he know that the American public doesn’t?
Is it that the man who
tried but failed to derail Obama’s campaign, Rev. Jeremiah Wright, will
come out with his much-ballyhooed book in October, with allegations that
will affirm Obama’s Muslim roots and allegiance? Will Wright reveal
"private” (but tape-recorded) conversations between himself and Obama
that will scare Independent and Democrat voters to opt for McCain?”
Do Hillary and her
minions have another race card to play, something on the variety of what
she recently told USA Today. The newspaper quoted her as saying that an
AP article showed how Obama’s support among "working, hard-working
Americans, white Americans, is waning…”
The newspaper quoted her as saying that an Associated Press article
showed how Sen. Barack Obama's support among "working, hard-working
Americans, white Americans, is weakening again, and how whites in both
states who had not completed college were supporting me." The newspaper
quoted her as saying that an Associated Press article showed how Sen.
Barack Obama's support among "working, hard-working Americans, white
Americans, is weakening again, and how whites in both states who had not

support among "working, hard-working Americans, white Americans, is

Or is Ickes’ warning
The Macabre Option
I have Vince Foster in mind. Among the million things I never "bought”
was that Vince Foster, Pres. Clinton’s Deputy White House counsel,
committed suicide. Or, for that matter, that the official photos taken
of him in Fort Marcy Park were "lost.”
When Ron Brown, Pres.
Clinton’s Sec. of Commerce – who was under investigation for corruption
and reportedly said he was willing to cut a deal with prosecutors – died
in an airplane crash, I smelled a rat when I leaned that he had a
bullet-hole in his head.
In an article I wrote –
Obama – Literally – Survive?” – I listed numerous, into the dozens,
of Clinton associates who had met untimely and often violent deaths,
many of them recorded as "cause unknown,” "accidental,” or "suicide.”
Considering the many
thugs the Clintons have associated with over their multi-decades in
public life – many of whom fled the country to avoid prosecution – is it
outside the realm of imagination to think that "hit squads” were among
historian and moralist Lord Acton said, "Power
tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely.” Does anyone
doubt that the Clintons, in their avaricious appetite for power – have
been corrupted absolutely, and that they wouldn’t "do anything” to
regain the presidency in order to (1) redeem Bill’s tarnished legacy,
and (2) actualize their lifelong dream of a Socialist America?
The Fear Factor
No, this is not the legitimate fear that Obama and all Americans should
feel at yet another "mysterious” death that has the Clinton stench about
is the fear that drives Bill and Hillary! A fear that has motivated them
to pour more than $11 million of their personal fortune into the current
presidential campaign, a fear that has the aging Bill, heart condition
and all, stumping for Hillary 14 hours a day.
left office seven years ago, he and wifey have earned well over $110
million, most of it from speeches and fundraising events that the
ex-president gave in foreign countries, the beneficiaries of which have
been the Clinton Library and the Clinton Foundation.
know that when he was president, Bill
sold our secret nuclear technology to
China. In turn, China, poured millions of dollars into Clinton's
1996 presidential campaign.
We know of the
mega-deals Bill has cut with Dubai. Former Clinton advisor Dick Morris
asks: "How much did Bill get from the Emir and what did he do for it?”
We know that Bill has
cut mega-deals with Nursultan Nazarbayev, the communist dictator of a former Soviet Republic who owns one-fifth of
the world’s uranium reserves.
We know that Bill has
cut mega-deals with the extremely wealthy Vinod
Gupta, known for fleecing Alzheimer's patients and vulnerable
seniors out of their life savings.
We know that Bill has
cut mega-deals with
Pinchuk, a billionaire steel magnate in Ukraine.
know that Bill has not just dealt with and promised things to
individuals, but also
governments, including Saudi Arabia, which now holds America up for oil!
Thanks, Hill and Bill!
that the Clintons – when they arrogantly thought Hillary was a shoo-in
for the presidency – promised "favors” and contracts and inside secrets
and preferential treatment and boatloads of money to these
mostly-hostile-to-America people and governments.
because they know all-too-well the consequences of broken promises,
they are afraid for their lives!
this poetic justice. Others say what goes ‘round comes ‘round. I say
