Vote for Hillary? Can’t Get Fooled Again

BK Faunce

Leave it to that celebrated American statesman, George W. Bush, to give eloquence to the thought: “Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me . . . you can’t get fooled again.”

Well, maybe not.

(It’s possible the ellipsis indicates W. was momentarily transported back to his frat-boy party days, about which he and a pack of paid sycophants have managed to fool everyone for a very long time. He was free and easy back then. Ask Dan Rather. And, as we all know, W. likes to party almost as much as he likes to lead. Because he’s a leader. A leader of the party. A party leader who leads by partying. Like when he partied us into Iraq. Which by the way ain’t broke. So party on. Even though democracy is messy and stop with all that “bin Laden determined to strike inside US” stuff. It’s un-party-like. “Now, watch this drive.”)

Speaking of getting fooled, what sane person would ever vote for Hillary Clinton for president? Honestly, wouldn’t that be like voting for Barack Obama in 2008 all over again — as if his presidency had never happened — as if we hadn’t already experienced the deceitful pirouette from populist rhetoric to corporate governance. What idiot would allow herself to be conned into voting for someone who says one thing but who does the opposite, after having been conned into voting for someone who said and did the exact same thing once already?

It’s not a hard question to answer.
