Hillary pimps out Chelsea – again

An increasingly desperate Hillary tries pimping Chelsea for the Oriental vote.


Newsweek magazine says Chelsea Clinton is back on the campaign trail, trying to be for her mother what Oprah has been for Barak Obama.

Long seen as shy, sheltered and “mute,” as columnist Maureen Dowd put it recently, Chelsea, 27, has emerged as one of Hillary’s most potent surrogates. The evolution has been gradual—from tentative forays last December in Iowa, where she smiled and waved benignly beside her mother, to the current string of solo appearances that sometimes resemble full-fledged rallies. She has visited more than 20 states so far and plans to continue through at least March 4. Her aim is twofold: to win over young voters, so many of whom have flocked to Sen. Barack Obama, and to strengthen her mother’s lead among women. Chelsea “has the unique ability to talk about her mother in a way no one else can,” says Philippe Reines, a senior Hillary adviser who now travels with the former—and possibly future—First Daughter.

    Steve: Thus the old Chinese proverb: Girl with buckteeth have very happy smile when being stuffed with big salami. (Although it’s a Japanese guy with her in the pic.) Maybe for a change Hillary should try salami instead of fish.

    U repukes can’t even leave children alone. Is no one safe from you?

    J0an: Chelsea is twenty-seven years old! Child? She could be a breeder for Christ’s sake! Only a liberal considers those in their late twenties as children. Maybe that’s because liberals stay children much longer than conservatives. Peronally, I think the girl is just lucky her daddy kept his hands off her all those years . . if he did.

    Hey Mahone! Didn’t you know it takes longer to raise a child when it is done by the whole village..and the Village People?

  • Mahone Dunbar March 3, 2008, 9:21 pm

    GUYK: I think I deserve a T-shirt. I’m an extra large.

    Hey fag – I’m actually getting my drumset back this weekend. I’ve got the 3 roto toms that you contributed, plus the pancake snare. Do you want to contribut a couple more roto toms? I believe it goes from a 6 inch to a 14 inch. I’d love to see a 16 and an 18, with stands, of course. My father-in-law is a welder, so I believe I can get some killer roto tom tracks built gratis.

    fabuck yaboo.
