Hillary Clinton Speech Writers Author Humorous In-Flight Stump Speech

January 17th, 2008 at 4:23 pm

It is the Year of The Election and with the Writer’s Strike continuing with no end in sight, our gluttonous appetites for consumption and entertainment will have to be filled by The Election, mediocre sitcoms, and fantasy television like American Idol (Why is this country full of delusional whiners? Our music and art programs must be in a deplorable state if this many people haven’t gotten their chance on stage through high school productions, band, glee clubs, and YouTube by now. But man, does it make for some great television!)

Of all the candidates, are Hillary Clinton’s speech writers the best? The most creative? The funniest? Which candidate has the best sense of humor? On a recent flight on her campaign plane, Senator Clinton riffed on the usual flight attendant pre-flight announcement and, in my favorite part, noted, “If you look out from the right, you will see an America saddled with tax cuts for the wealthiest and a war without end. If you look out from the left, you will see an America
with a strong middle class at home and a strong reputation in the
world.

Yes!

Well done, Senator Clinton. But what will you do about our education system? Specifically our music and arts programs? Something has gone horribly wrong. Are you watching American Idol? Have you listened to the Top 40? Do you read the bestsellers?

  1. Think about all the Ex-American Idol books we can look forward to in the next twenty years. Simply mind-boggling. I am 99% sure that at least one will have excerpts of the contestants love affair with Simon Cowell. Lame.
