Hillary Clinton Takes Crass To A New Level!
"Over two years after Secretary of State Hillary Clinton got shellacked by Barack Obama in the 2008 Democratic primaries, she remains in debt and has gone the Home ShoppinG Network path to raise money: Selling signed copies of a DVD recording of her Democratic Convention speech.
In an E-mail to her Hillary Clinton for President supporters, she begs with a repeat of a speech line: `You never gave in. You never gave up. And together, we made history.`
The deal, her group says, is simple: Pay $50 and get a DVD of the speech. Pay $250 and it comes with a `signature` DVD. Act now, comes a warning, because there are only 50 of those available.
"Crass" is the middle name of every politician, to have a credible chance of winning a presidential aspirant must raise a ton of money by schmoozing with the filthy rich.
But Hillary Clinton manages to take "crass" to a new level. I thought I`d seen everything when Bill and Hillary left the White House with antiques and furniture, but this takes the cake.
I wouldn`t listen to Hillary`s speech if you paid me $250; I wouldn`t fork over a dime for Hillary`s DVD.
Hillary and Bill aren`t exactly paupers, Hillary has more than enough money to pay off her debts. Hillary`s sales pitch reminds me of a televangelist:
Dear brothers and sisters in Christ, I have the deal of a lifetime! My God-inspired sermon "Sissies, Liberals and Gleeks Will Burn in Hell" is now available on DVD" for only $50! For $250 I will include a prayer cloth drenched with my holy sweat! For a donation of $1,000 you will get the DVD, the prayer cloth AND one of my signature collection polyester leisure suits that I wore back in the day. Act now brethren! There are only 50 of the leisure suits available.
Shame, Shame on Hillary Clinton!
