Dr. Steve Finger writes a column called “The Pointing Finger“; it appears off and on in several local newspapers around New York City, including the Canarsie Courier. I loved his take on Pillary’s globetrotting — all at our expense, of course — and the analogy to utterly useless, wasteful government he saw in it:
Vote For Hillary
Last week, it was announced that Hillary Clinton is to receive the Liberty Medal in a ceremony at the Constitution Center in historic Philadelphia in recognition of a lifetime spent in public service.
Mrs. Clinton is often praised for having been the most widely traveled Secretary of State in history having visited over 100 countries during her term in office. And yet, no one has been able to name a single region, a single country…a single city block…that has been in any way improved by all those travels.
In other words, after the expenditure of millions (billions?) of dollars, numerous speeches, conferences, meetings, showing ‘awareness’, even doing the Macarena in South Africa, but finally accomplishing…nothing, Secretary Clinton has managed to become a metaphor for 21st century governments everywhere.
A president for our time? Got my vote.
