Clinton to lecture Sabato’s class Monday

Sen. Hillary Clinton (D-NY) will be a guest lecturer at the University of Virginia Monday, February 11. The Clinton campaign confirms that she will address professor and political pundit Larry Sabato's Introduction to American Politics class at 3pm, tentatively scheduled for the main auditorium at Wilson Hall. The lecture comes less than 24 hours before the polls open for the February 12 Virginia Democratic presidential primary.

"We just confirmed it this afternoon," says Sabato. "This class has had Presidents Ford, Carter, and Reagan in addition to over 100 senators, governors, and cabinet officers, and this will be another wonderful opportunity for the students to learn directly from someone very important."

Sabato says he e-mailed the remaining presidential candidates news that the lecture slot was open to the candidate who wanted it, and "Clinton was fastest on the draw."

Ever mindful of the academic setting, Sabato has asked the campaign for ample time for a question and answer period following the lecture. "Every minute of this class is reserved for the students," he says. "Media won't be allowed to ask questions. I won't even ask any questions."


Sabato raised some eyebrows last June when he wrote a column called "The Hillary Dilemma" on his "Crystal Ball" website. Referring to the possibility of a Hillary Clinton presidency, Sabato wrote, "That every president from 1989 to 2017 may be a Bush or a Clinton is a national disgrace. What happened to the American republic? How does it differ from a banana republic– where a couple of families often run everything for generations?"

Asked about those words today, Sabato says, "I can say truthfully that I've written critical columns about every candidate running. People often focus on one to the exclusion of others, and it's just so foolish. I'm not going to parrot people's press releases. I won't ever do it for anybody."

No word yet on whether there will be a Clinton event open to the public while she's in town.

Obama's Dirty Tricks?

Dear Sisters and Brothers for Hillary,

Let me call to Hillary's attention to what is being said about her and Bill and Chelsea on one very nasty pro-Obama website I came across, www.matrix-evolutions.com. They are actually connecting up Bill's Monica tryst with parental sexual abuse on Chelsea if you can believe it! Whether it is better not paid attention to or countered, I don't know, but somebody who does know what the right response is should be made aware of this. The beginning of this website, which focuses on the election reads:

We are scientists who derive our politics from an evolutionary perspective, not from conservative ideology. Our analysis concludes that our so-called war on terror is slowly but surely taking us to World War III. Note Putin's 2/8/08 call for a renewed arms race to counter America's efforts to conquer the world. For that reason we support Barack Obama as the only real anti-war candidate, the only one who can keep such a nuclear tipped train wreck from happening.

As to Hillary Clinton, recall during their populist administration that President Bill and missus, while promising health care they never delivered, did deliver more police and prisons, and took our jail population to the highest per-capita level in the world. This statistic, ahem, is historically associated with hardened police states like Stalinist Russia and apartheid South Africa. We all know that spitting on the street nowadays will get you six months in jail. But of course we're not a police state, because if we were, you'd have heard about it on the evening news.

The Clintons as president also made their upper class handlers happy by ending LBJs war on poverty, which brought about the vast population of homeless beggars we see on the streets of America today. Pearls for the wealthy, evictions for the rest of us. Don't laugh. It could happen to you. Wait until the recession, caused primarily by our trillion dollar War in Iraq, gets into high gear. Goodbye nest egg when the market totally collapses. Goodbye home thanks to the Shylock mortgage brokers in bed with the conservatives. Hello suffering on the street with your kids in a foster home.

Actually Hillary does have a few things she can be very proud of. She is a most talented actress, a profoundly adept social climber and a top paid shill of the upper class. She is our American Evita and almost everybody loves her style. But whatever her talents and personal accomplishments, she is not going to go against the wishes of the ruling clique who created her and Bill and stop their war.

Some think that Hillary would never lie to us. But Bill also insisted he would never lie to us and is so amazingly good an actor, almost as good as his wife, that we yet believe him even after the tape recording caught him with the cigar between Monica's legs. What character is there in a first family when the head of the most powerful nation on earth is sticking a penile object, not even his own, up some college kid's vagina? Does anybody think Hillary felt personally bad about the Monica thing other than not having her usual go with one of Bill's girls? Watch the conservatives bring forth one of Hillary's lovers soon to clarify her tastes in this area. Indeed, one would not be surprised if the less than confident, slightly retarded, persona Chelsea Clinton was condemned to live her life with derives from her pervert parents abusing her when she was four years old. Certainly there is as much truth in this conjecture as in the equally outrageous conjecture that the Clintons are not good people even though they go to church every Sunday. If evil is badness that comes from an unexpected source, the Clintons are evil enough to have shit stuffed in their mouths and be set on fire. That's an opinion of their character, not a threat on their lives, for all you hate speech monitors out there.

Unfortunately, though, short of a revolution, we may be stuck with another Clinton figurehead presidency, for our evolutionary analysis shows clearly that while biological evolution is not of intelligent design, our presidential elections are. They are intelligently designed by the conservative ruling clique that has hold of our media and our courts, including our Supreme Court, which designed the last election outcome. Which all of you meekly accepted because the majority of Americans are basically passive cowards who lack the courage it takes to stand up to tyranny. The upper classes would never allow Obama to become president and stop the war. They would assassinate him first, literally have him shot like Martin Luther King, if the media they control can't derail his candidacy in a more subtle way. We reach these outrageous conclusions, not from bipolar disease, but from a firm scientific analysis whose details follow after we have introduced ourselves.

I hope this information helps.
Onward to victory,
Martha Turner
