Don't Try Calling Hillary At 3:00 AM In the Morning, Because She Is Busy Calling the Ghost Busters

Hillary has the experience. She's the one you can trust. She's the one to call if a world crisis happens at 3:00 AM in the morning. It was her chief strategist Mark Penn who came up with the idea. But I don't know if it was he who came up with the idea to blast Barack Obama when one of his guys went to Canada to tell people not to worry too much about Obama being against trade, but he sure had a good feel for trade issues. He had seen it from both sides. First helping craft Hillary's strategy to fight the trade deal with Colombia, and then helping the Colombian government to get the deal passed. Isn't this a very Clintonian situation? To have it both ways? To fight for the poor and to rake it in hand over fist. To fight corruption, while selling access as if it was candy. The $106 million jackpot. The secret dealing and wheeling....

Poor Mr. Penn is out, and if you can get through on that red phone at 3:00 AM in the morning, maybe Hillary will be as hillarious as on Saturday Night Live or the Jay Leno Show. But if the line is busy, rest assured that it's Hillary herself calling the Ghost Busters...
