Sometimes, nothing in my wildest Photoshop can compete with reality. Sheesh. I thought Hill had something good going on with that Bond villain look — you know, severe hair pull-back, Nehru jacket. This Hillbo the Clown thing, not so much.

But I don’t want to talk about that, I want to talk about Huma Abedin (hahaha…see wot I did thur?). Do you realize it’s been a year next week since Anthony Weiner resigned?

Huma continues as Hillary’s lovely assistant — last caught on camera in that role last October, handing Hill her blackberry with the news that Mo Ghadaffi was an ex-parrot.

Two months later, Huma gave birth to little Jordan Zain Weiner. Jordan Zain Weiner. Is there no end to the tragedy?

Anyhoo, the New York Post published a little snotty about Weiner’s new role as a stay-at-home Dad. And then the Atlantic pulled off a neat trick – they wrote a post about the Post‘s post.

That way, they could recap last year’s delightful Weiner scandal, repeat all the Post‘s snark about Weiner’s Mister Mom act, and then be ever so snooty about what a dreadful lowbrow rag the Post is for printing such scurrilous filth.

God, they think we’re stupid.

Right. The same Atlantic that for years tried to climb up into Palin’s womb? Nothing low brow let alone nuts about that.

Anyway, Jay Zee Weiner sounds like a rapper’s name.

More like a brand name for hot dogs. Or maybe for a hot dog franchise.

This Hillbo the Clown thing, not so much.

Well, look at the circus she’s in, filled with clowns. Obama, Biden, Pelosi, Reid, and rest of the Dhimmicratic slobs. She’s just trying to blend in, especially with her hubby’s behavior of late. Makes her less of a target.

They don’t think we’re stupid, after all, they’re not writing for us. They’re writing for Democrats.

The awesome thing about that, Scoob, is that, as best I’ve ever been able to ascertain, that was a real Man’s Life cover.

Hillary will be 69 in November 2016. Too old to run for President? Perhaps not, but pushing it. If the jug-eared poltroon is still in office, he’ll probably have poisoned the Democrat brand so badly that she’d have no chance. If Romney is President, there’s no reason to believe the economy won’t have recovered at least partially. Either way, her chances would be very slim. I don’t think she wants to run anyway. Probably Bill wants a proxy third term, but that’s a lot to ask.

Part of the unique genius of Barack Obama is that he makes Clinton-haters like me wish she’d won the nomination. And Bill hates Obama. Hates, hates, HATES him. It’s splendid.

I grew up in the fashion biz, and I have to agree with you, Stoaty. The Bond Villian look really worked for her.

The trouble with journos is they don’t think, and liars believe lies.

Poltroon is such a wonderful word….

Yes, 69 is too old – for a woman.

Now, before you bite my head off, let me explain:

It’s POLITICS, which means it’s visuals to a ridiculous degree. Men age better than women, as a rule of thumb – they get “distinguished”, etc. etc. Women, they just get old. VISUALLY. And in the Great Unwashed’s mind, such as it is.

So: She’s got zero chance at the Presidency in 2016. She’s into Madeline Allbright territory.

Urinalists are lying liars, but I repeat mahself.

Anyways, yours is the only store open today, as many of the other blogs I attend are in a “silence” today as a protest. Several Representatives have put out letters about “Swatting” of conservatives and conservative bloggers, so the issue seems to be gaining some traction already. So I came over to aggravate Dame Stoaty.

Lucky you.

Oh, shit, I forgot about the proposed day of silence, Sandy.

My bad. It’s not that I’m not into it, it’s that I always feel more than faintly ridiculous getting behind the meaningful issues. I look pretty stupid pretending to be a grownup.

I read this Popehat post and thought of you, Stoaty. I don’t know (or care) about computer games, so this might be old news. Three Games: Two Expensive, One Cheap; Two Great, One Not

The games mentioned are Warlock: Master of the Arcane ($10), Distant Worlds ($70 to get all the bits), and Diablo III (don’t bother).

Comment from S. Weasel

Surprised to hear that about Diablo III. It was a much anticipated release. I played a Diablo, but it was an early one.

I’ve currently got the Bioshock series queued up but, to be honest, I’m not that into computer games in the Summer. Also, it’s light here until, like, ten o’clock…and everybody knows you’ll go blind if you play computer games in daylight.

Not that I’m getting excited, or anything, of course. 🙂

Last time I was there (LONG time ago – maybe 1991?) was in what must have been the worst summer ever. Mid July, tootling around with a friend in the Outer Hebrides, constant cold rain daily, temp straining to stay above freezing. I was so unprepared, and so miserable, I ditched my friend and spent the last part of the trip plonked in front of a fire in a too-expensive hotel by Loch Ness, sipping whisky and working the Guardian crossword.

When Summer is good here, it’s beyond awesome. It’s like the loveliest Spring day you can remember – warm in the sun, cool in the shade. Never extreme.

But the gray and cold periods are gray and cold. Today, we’re having a gale. Sunny and windy. Tomorrow too.

Weird old place.

My mom is 3 years older than Hillary, and she doesn’t have half the facial roadmap going on that we see here.
