The Big Pink article reproduced at SkyNews explains enough of our attitude about Sarah Palin so we won’t focus on Sarah today.
Today, we want to end the year on a Cloud 9 of Pink fluffiness. We want to discuss Hillary Clinton at the end of 2009 and the beginning of 2010.

One of the most intriguing observations about the Japanese and the causes of World War II is that the Japanese act collectively. The analysis concludes that, because of their collective mindset, in the 1930s and 40s, the Japanese people went collectively insane. While we think the battle over natural resources leads to a better understanding of the causes of World War II, this interesting observation of 1930s Japanese society skews our view of what is happening in the United States. It’s almost as if the United States has gone collectively insane.
In 2000, the country was saddled with George W. Bush – a man even his family was surprised could possibly want or win the presidency. Yes, the election was a selection by the Supreme Court, but still a lot of people, about half the country, voted for Bush. In 2004 Bush was reelected despite a massive intelligence failure which was exposed with two demolished towers in New York City.
In 2008, after eight years of disaster, the Democratic Party finally organized itself – in order to defeat and destroy the most qualified candidate and gift the nomination to a self-interested boob. The Democratic Party in 2008 dumped the winning FDR coalition in order to embrace a losing “situation comedy” demographic as its base coalition. The Democratic Party in 2008 committed suicide and an ugly monstrosity put on the old Democratic clothes and became the Dimocratic Party of Barack Obama.
This was insanity. A whole decade of insanity. Trade one Republican boob for one Dimocratic boob. Insanity.
Into the American madness, like a pocket of air in a sunken Chappaquiddick car, there is a bubble of sanity.
“At the end of the 21st century’s first decade,” the sanity bubble is Hillary Clinton and her growing army of supporters.
One is a woman who once lived in the White House — Hillary Rodham Clinton. And the other is a woman suspected of harboring ambitions of living there someday — Sarah Palin.
A Democrat and a Republican. A former senator and a former governor. Two polarizing politicians, both moms, both bestselling authors, both who lost their bids for one of the nation’s top elected offices last year.
Are American voters dropping a hint here?
Two women, both savaged and termed “polarizing”, from opposite sides of the political spectrum, find themselves oddly united in a cause. The cause is the fight against sexism and misogyny.
We used to think that it was the Republicans who were mouth-breathers and Neanderthals but now that best describes Obama’s Dimocratic Party. Republicans who are Palin supporters are now champions in the fight against sexism and misogyny. Let’s hope they stay that way and the conversion into opposition of sexism and misogyny is a permanent, eyes opened, new state of being.
The Hillary Clinton Sanity Bubble gives us HOPE. Perhaps the decade of decline and insanity is truly over. As we enter 2010 Hillary Clinton is the most admired woman in the United States, again. A Hillary Clinton versus Sarah Palin 2012 election would forever blast and destroy the glass ceiling of sexism and misogyny that Barack Obama and his Dimocratic Party exploit.
Not that public admiration necessarily translates to votes. But the results have to set off any political spectator’s eager imagination about a future presidential ballot match-up between the pair who, though politically polar opposites, are both outspoken, both often underestimated and both beloved by their respective bases.
The Hillary Clinton Sanity Bubble gives us all HOPE for CHANGE. Not false hope and cheap change, but a successful battle plan for future changes for the better. The Hillary Clinton Sanity Bubble comes from the hearts and minds of Americans. The Sanity Bubble persists even with Obama attempts to pin prick it. The Sanity Bubble persists and grows. The Hillary Clinton Sanity Bubble is a survivor.
Clinton’s 17 straight years as most- or second-most-admired woman is unprecedented since Gallup began asking the question in 1948 (when presidential daughter Margaret Truman and then-Princess, now Queen Elizabeth II were in the top 10.)
Clinton first headed the list in 1993 as the new first lady in the White House.
And she remained highly admired as first lady throughout the public and private turmoils of her husband’s two terms, then as a senator from New York and now as the nation’s 67th secretary of State, only the third woman to hold the post.
Michelle Obama, known for her work in hospital patient dumping schemes found herself in the discount bin of a Science Fiction convention.
The latest new first lady, Michelle Obama, trailed on this year’s most-admired-women list.
She ended up back at No. 4. As The Ticket reported here Monday, in a separate poll, Mrs. Obama is also mirroring her husband’s plunge in approval ratings. From November to December, her approval numbers dropped seven points, down to 55, still higher than the president’s.
The Hillary Clinton Sanity Bubble is not a Wall Street financial Bubble. The Hillary Clinton Sanity Bubble is an antidote to insanity. The Hillary Clinton Sanity Bubble is long term and growing. Have we said “unprecedented”?
Among women, Clinton continues an unprecedented 17-year run as the first or second most-admired woman. She first led the list in 1993 as first lady and has held the top spot for the past eight years as a New York senator and, now, the nation’s top diplomat. [snip]
Over the years, the list has reflected women’s changing roles. In 1948, the top-10 list included presidential daughter Margaret Truman and Princess Elizabeth of England as well as their mothers. Only one, former House member Clare Boothe Luce, had held elective office.
Now, it includes three current or former heads of state, two U.S. secretaries of State, a former governor and a writer, Maya Angelou.
There is not much good news other than the Hillary Clinton Sanity Bubble as we enter the second year of the Barack Obama Age Of Fake swamp. When you elect a boob, expect boobery. We expect a lot more boobery.
The boobery of the New Year will begin at midnight tonight with the Iran drama and the expired deadline. The boobery will continue with the Obama health scam. The boobery will continue. The insanity will not stop. The insanity will have to be stopped.
The insanity will be stopped with sanity. It will begin with massive Dimocratic defeats in November 2010. The insanity will end with Hillary 2012.
