The Tearful Candidate

(Wrote this a while back. Never posted it. So here goes!)

A big deal is being made over Hillary Clinton's tearful reply to a New Hampshire questioner. Real tears? A staged cry? You decide.

Here's a thought. She's freakin' tired. Did you see how tired the candidates looked during their speeches after the Iowa primaries? Campaigning and presidenting have a way of aging a person, reeeeeal fast.

Take George H. W. Bush, for instance. He looked right perky in 1989 when he first became el presidente:
But later, he started looking a little twitchy, gray, and stressed. Look how he can't get his headphones on right....
"Bloody freakin' headphones... ah, I'm too d*mn tired...."

And take Mr. Former Playboy Prez, Bill....

Eight years caught up to HIM real fast. 'Course, he wasn't just presidenting, he was multi-tasking. Ahem.

And we've all seen how the years have treated the man of the hour, Mr. George Dubble-yuh Bush.

Looks like he's done gone and lost his marbles!

Oh, sorry Mr. Prez. It's just that... well.. it's just that... I can't believe we elected YOU! TWICE! oh nevermind.

So Hillary? I hope yer willin' to lose that youthful, womanly glow, if'n you win.

I mean, what's a woman's #1 priority? Uh huh, that's right. Looking good.

And that is why I just might have to vote for Obama. Cuz grrlfriend, I've got your back.

I love this post - glad you decided to share it. (And I'm not just saying that for the Mr. Potato Head President picture, although that's certainly part of it's charm I confess.)
