Random Thoughts - Clark and Martha
Welcome to my world, where it's time for a couple of my infamous random thoughts. I'm looking at Clinton-Democrat presidential contender Wesley Clark, the former General, who in a heart beat went from, "I would vote to attack Iraq", to, "I don't know", to, "I would not vote to attack Iraq". He is now getting gang banged by the other non-Clinton anointed candidates, who at least, with their Bush bashing, are more decisive than Clark. Their new bone of contention is the fact that Clark was raising money for President Bush before the now famous hanging chad election. Why he was a Republican, perish the thought!! Two years ago in Arkansas, he praised Presidents Reagan and George H.W. Bush, and called the current administration a great team, criticizing Bill Clinton's foreign policy. Howard Dean, noting all of the above, says Clark will have a hard time convincing people he's a Democrat, a view shared by John Kerry. Joe Lieberman questions Clark's claim that he had taken an incredible journey, from a G.O.P. fund raiser in May of 2001, to a Bush bashing Democrat. Lieberman says it looks like a journey of convenience. My opinion is that the ticket to the journey was paid for and punched by the Clintons.
And we all have bad times, but domestic goddess and accused inside trader, Martha Stewart, is having more than just her normal bad hair days. She's up to her apron in heat. If she thinks the S.E.C. and Justice Department are tough, she's got the real bad asses on her back now. No, It's not the Mafia, it's P.E.T.A., People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. They may sue Martha for removing soft shell crabs from their shells and frying them while they writhed in pain, on her cooking show. Could I be in trouble? The other night at Salute, I had shrimp scampi. The poor little guys were naked and bent over in prayerful submission. I thought I heard them cry, but it might have been Diane's dismembered chicken. We tossed aside the guilt and dined. Dam good eatin', as I see it .. I'm H.G. Listiak.
