Hillary Sprouting Leaves With All Her Planting

Madame Hillary is trying her damnedest to change perceptions about her character- harsh, shrill, cold. Can't be easy, considering she's spent a lifetime perfecting that persona. So her handlers are trying to soften up her image- make her warm and fuzzy, which just makes her look like the big old fake that she really is.

To help her seem more palatable to a larger number of people, she's apparently taken to arranging for "plants" to show up on her campaign trail. No, not the garden-type variety, but rather the "people" kind. At least so claims Andrew Malcolm on his blog at the L.A. Times.

She's done it in the past, but this time it gets darn right icky. Apparently, she's solicited a gaggle of friends, family, her doting hubby and Magic Johnson to canvas Iowa, sharing stories with potential voters, in an effort to humanize her.

So here's the warm and fuzzy:

On December 18, when asked about her faith at a campaign stop at a fire station in Donnellson, Iowa, Madame Hillary judicially responded- practicing Methodist. And miracle upon miracle, it turns out her Sunday School teacher just so happened to be in the audience. When Hillary was made aware of this fact, she immediately rushed over to Rosalie Bentzinger to give her a big ol' fat hug. And Rosalie, just so happened to be carrying a picture of Mrs. Clinton's confirmation class. Hillary gushed: "She has a picture of my confirmation class -- March 27, 1959."

Clinton aides claim they were totally unaware that Bentzinger was there with a one of Hillary's friends. Uhuh!

Okay, so it could be a total coincidence, but in light of all her other shenanigans, it seems very coincidental that she would be asked about her faith, and suddenly Sunday school teacher is there, picture in hand ready to be embraced by Hillary-warmth. I don't buy it. It's a great staged photo op. Although, given some of the comments on Andrew's blog, there are some people gullible enough to fall for it!

And for a little more Hillary Humour on the same theme:

The old priest lay dying in the hospital. For years, he had faithfully served the people of the nation's capital in Washington D.C. He motioned for his nurse to come near.

"Yes, Father?" said the nurse.
"I would really like to see former President Bill Clinton and Senator Hillary Clinton before I die," whispered the priest.
"I'll see what I can do, Father" replied the nurse.

The nurse sent the request to the Senate and waited for a response. Soon the word arrived; the Clintons would be delighted to visit the priest. On their way to the hospital, Hillary commented to Bill, "I don't know why the old priest wants to see us, but it certainly will help our images and might even get me elected President. After all, I'm IN IT TO WIN IT! " Bill agreed---it would be a very good thing for her campaign once they put out a press release about their visit to honor the old priest's last request. When they arrived at the priest's room, the old priest took Bill's hand in his right hand and Hillary's hand in his left. There was a dead silence and a look of serenity on the old priest's face.

Finally, Bill Clinton spoke. "Father, of all the people you could have chosen, why did you choose us to be with you as you near the end?"
The old priest slowly replied, "I have always tried to pattern my life after our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ."
"Amen" said Bill.
"Amen" said Hillary.

The old priest continued..."He died between two lying thieves. I would like to do the same."

It might be the kiss of death, but I plugged your blog at mine.

I agree with anything against Hillary.

Funny joke.

You can rest assured that there is absolutely nothing that is only a coincidence in the Hillary operations. She's the Queen of all control freaks.

There was a story that she has a group of people who knew her in her days of growing up in Illinois that are being bussed around Iowa proclaiming their loyalty to Her Highness. 'Cuz she's such a wonderful person, you know.

And her Mom likes her, too.

well played incog.. i am enjoying watching the press handle her campaign. for now they have been a lap dog in fawning. but they are people who crave the controversial. i think they are getting "bored" with hillary. they need blood so if no else will go after her, the candidates, which if they were smart they wouldn't. look for them to go for a kill. if this happens she will not be able to handle it.

That joke is as funny as she is scary...

If you really want a laugh (at her audacity not her attempt at humor) you should check out her Christmas commercial (I saw it at It literally shows her happily giving away huge entitlements as her gifts to America... her smiling all the way... If you would have told me the GOP found a look alike and made an attack add, I would have believed you because it is that scary for anyone with an ounce of conservatism in them.

Hillary has staged another campaign event for her "Hilly Copter Trail of Tears" tour, this time carefully staging a "reunion" with her long-lost Sunday School Teacher in a firehouse in Iowa.

The event was staged to make it appear that Clinton was "suprised" to see her old Sunday School Teacher in the firehouse. The two hugged. The Teacher, Roaslie Bentzinger, even brought a photo of Hillary's confirmation class. Not a dry eye in the house! After all these years!

The event also provided an excellent opportunity for Hillary to expond on her religous beliefs (presumably contrasting them with Obama's). The entire staged event was started with a planted question about her faith. After Hillary exponded on her praying habits, the long-lost Sunday School Teacher came forward from the small crowd gathered.

The problem with the event is that Hillary and Ms. Bentzinger are hardly strangers, having met at a similar campaign event in April of this year.

Ms. Bentzinger is hardly an unknown retired Sunday School teacher living in obscurity, either. Ms. Bentzinger is a well-known regliious scholar and leader and even has a religious scholarship named after her.

Hard to beleive Clinton did not recognize her in the crowd, considering they shared BBQ together a few months earlier:

Event Name: Senator Hillary Clinton at a BBQ Fundraiser in Fort Madison, Iowa

REN: Thanks Ren. I think. :-) So far, so good. No vicious lefties with scathing commentary.

KAREN: I thought so. I know nothing is what it seems with her. Yeah.. exactly.. her gaggle of friends that I mentioned. They're off all over to share "nice" stories about her. Sigh. She probably threatened her Mom!

PAT J: She can't seem to handle anything so should be interesting. And yup.. the other candidates would do very well to NOT participate.

MONDAY: She's the master at it.

WOMAN: Well, until this spring or next Fall, we'll be seeing a lot of her.

KODIAK: Thanks for the heads up. I will definitely check it out. I need some good laughs.

ANON: Thanks for the extra information on the Sunday school teacher.
