". . . But the past does not exist independently from the present. Indeed, the past is only past because there is a present, just as I can point to something over there only because I am here. But nothing is inherently over there or here. In that sense, the past has no content. The past -- or more accurately, pastness -- is a position. Thus, in no way can we identify the past as past." p. 15

". . . But we may want to keep in mind that deeds and words are not as distinguishable as often we presume. History does not belong only to its narrators, professional or amateur. While some of us debate what history is or was, others take it into their own hands." p. 153

Another Dem Gub Bites The Dust

Though Spitzer is still vascillating about resigning, despite being indicted for criminal connection to the veddy upscale prostitution ring known as The Emperors' Club. Federal wiretap and IRS duel investigation into money laundering and tax evasion got evidence that when Our Gub went to D.C. to testify on corporate criminality he arranged to meet one of the expensive escort service's 'girls' at the Mayflower Hotel. For some reason she was coming in by train from NY. Sooooooo supposedly they may try to nail HIM on the Mann Act and on RICO. I'm not sure this can stand.

But nevermind. This Mr. Rectitude knows the gops have been gunning for him for a long time, salivating to get him -- he busted a Staten Island prostitution ring while NY's attorney general, and has gone after Wall Street bigs for corporate shenanigans. Wall St. partied like crazy today, despite the market's continued slide.

So, like Clinton, we've got another dem -- superdelegate, big Hillary fund-raiser and campaigner -- demonstrating his arrogant, selfish teh stupid.

The question is: that client list -- he's known as 'client 9' -- who are the other clients? How come only he is getting indicted? how many gop politicos and lobbyists are serviced by these high priced ladies -- prices up to $4,500 a night, $31 thousand per day -- Why a federal investigation and wiretap for this? Was it legal? And, um -- how many dem gubs has this regime taken down so far?

I'm furious. His wife looks wrecked. He has 3 teenage daughters. So stupid, so selfish. What a bastard. And pretending he is such a crusader against criminality.

teh stupid doesn't get more stupid than this.

I'm furious that yet another one of them has fucked me and the voters over -- out of their selfishness. Truly the legacy of Bill.

So we've got a preview here of what it will be if Billary go back the Oval Office: The Clintons Part 2: the Sequel.
