Hillary Clinton vs Donald Trump: Medusa vs Daddy Warbucks

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Dilbert cartoonist Scott Adams, who predicted Trump`s rise early, sums up the probable general-election matchup nicely: So when we have Trump versus Clinton, assuming they get to the final match, it`s going to look like mom versus dad. Now, they`re not going to say that, but in our minds we`re going to start seeing them that way. And the thing about dad is that dad is kind of an a-hole, but if you need dad to take care of some trouble, he`s going to be the one you call."

National Review

Although Hillary was the first female candidate to have held a probable chance of winning the nomination of a major party, and the presidential election, she steadfastly refused to play the "woman card" in the 2008 presidential campaign.

Hillary implicitly played the woman card by tearing up in a cafe on the eve of the New Hampshire primary, her display of feminine emotion lead to a win in the Granite State after her devastating loss in Iowa.

it wasn`t until she suspended her campaign on June 7, 2008 and endorsed Barack Hussein Obama that she explicitly played the "woman card" telling her supporters:

Although we weren`t able to shatter that highest, hardest glass ceiling this time, thanks to you, it`s got about 18 million cracks in it.

But this time around Hillary is "balls out" playing the female card, her campaign is based on the fact that if she wins she will be the first female President of the United States.

Hillary prefaces almost every stump speech by highlighting her gender, she`s going to ride her ovaries all the way to the White House.

I`m surprised that Hillary hasn`t made "Crush the Patriarchy" her campaign slogan, she`s already promised that if she wins at least half of her cabinet will be female.

Donald Trump is the epitome of machismo, his testosterone-fueled campaign appeals to blue-collar white males who blame immigrants and powerful women for their declining standard of living.

Trump doesn`t give a hoot about political-correctness and in a battle against Hillary he will go there, boy will he ever go there:

He will ask Hillary when she will come out of the closet as a lesbian.

He will point out her hypocrisy of painting herself as a feminist hero while enabling Slick Willy`s serial philandering.

He will argue that her chronic cough is evidence that she`s physically unfit for the demanding role of Leader of the Free World.

It will be Daddy Warbucks vs the Wicked Witch of the West, and I will have to give the edge to Trump because he doesn`t recognize any boundaries.

Of course our democracy will lose regardless who wins.
