just in case anyone was thinking about voting for her…

…she really, really, really doesn’t give a fuck about you.

    Wait, she doesn’t give a fuck about me because she’s standing next to Rupert Murdoch?

    He looks like he’s kept alive on the blood of children.

    on the low bright spot, they’re not making eye contact… not a possitive thing, but not as negative as it may seem initially.

    Ok, probably a bit hyperbolic/bloggy with the initial post. But more seriously, social-Washington DC just weirds me out sometimes. Cordiality is a good thing, but pull back the veil in Washington culture-what is going on? Who feels comfortable with who? What does that mean when a message is carefully sculpted for the primaries?

    I’ll fully admit, though, I’m not above an anti-Hillary cheapshot either.

    Not that I know who I’m going to be voting for, btw.

    And, ok, cheap shots are probably not the best thing, in that they’re cheap, and not well thought out. So sorry about that.

    I’m going to stop talking now.

    Heh, naw, I’m not above cheap shots either, honestly. It was really just a personal issue with “standing next to” = “associated with” implications from pictures. If I had to make sure I was never photographed next to someone thought was an ass, let alone people I disagree with, I’d have to run whenever I saw a camera come out. =P

    It is fascinating, though, to try and figure out what’s going on behind the scenes.

    Oh no, looks like Murdoch had a fundraiser for Hillary.
