"****** BREAKING: BOOK BAG GATE *********"
I have to hand it to Rush. I thought Operation Chaos would amount to nothing more than keeping Hillary in the race. However, Operation Chaos has metastasized through the DUmp at an alarming rate, amplifying their paranoia to the point that any statement from Her Thighness will be played over and over, forward and backward, in hopes of finding another "misstatement."
Friday marked the fortieth anniversary of the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Hillary, as with all political candidates on historic events from modern memory, had to relate how she reacted to the news. So when, in THIS INTERVIEW, she recalls hurling her book bag across her dorm room, the DUmmies pounced on the possible anachronism.
What followed was a DUmb version of Memogate, henceforth called Book Bag Gate, which you can read in this THREAD. As luck would have it, Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (1971) was playing on my TV as I was working on this installment. Lo and behold, in the scene where school is dismissed early, Charlie Bucket eagerly scoops up his book bag as he is running out of school.
Now on to watch the DUmmies get outraged over a book bag in Bolshevik Red while the commentary of your humble guest correspondent, with more butterflies in his stomach than El Rosario in October, is in the [brackets]:
pre-note: GinnyinWI inspired this when she said she couldn't remember carrying book bags back then after racking her brain.
[Her brain is on that rack still.]
no protest photo I could find had a student male or female holding a bookbag, it's understandable that one might be having too hard a time dodging riot police to wield a book bag.
[What did they do during protest study hour?]
Bonobo has already compiled Hillary photo's circa 1968
[And you think your job sucks.]
Also ponder, the weight of this history, and that this is the legacy that Hillary is exploiting and trying to politically profiteer...
[My verdict is...You're nuts!]
Wrong! I had a book bag back in the late 50's. It was canvass and had leather straps.
[Charlie Bucket had one in 1971.]
I didnt say you didnt have a bookbag!
[Only the privileged classes had book-bags while the poor carried their books unprotected. UNIVERSAL BOOK BAGS NOW!]
Hillary supporters just don't like inconvenient facts/pictures.
[An inconvenient youth.]
During Nixon's time she tried to take Nixon's constitutional rights away when she worked at a law firm, or something along those lines.
Agree though, no book bags back then.
[Just a dearth of constitutional rights.]
Hillary talks to Eleanor Rossevelt too.
[When Eleanor Roosevelt starts talking, you can't get a word in edgewise.]
That was the most disingenuous statement/story I've heard in a long time from a Democrat.
[Then you haven't been listening.]
Oh for God's sake, this BS is ridiculous.
[This BS is FUnnie.]
And I'm referring to this BS "Bookbag gate"
[Book Bag Gate it is.]
I for one am disgusted by all this train-wreck stuff too...
[I for one am amused by it.]
It's about her and her truthfulness. She doesn't have any and as for 40 years? She goes back 40 years of not being truthful. That is what it is about.
[Practice makes perfect.]
Still a lot of issues to discuss
[Oh boy, did you come to come to the wrong place.]
A lot of voters, even on this forum, are still uneducated about the difference between Obama and Clinton on quite a few major issues.
[Because there isn't any.]
If Obama supporters don't want to discuss issues and have so much time on their hands, maybe they should go out and campaign for him, or start looking for summer jobs.
[Never tell a DUmmie to get a job.]
I think some of you have an obsession, It's not healthy. You can get help.
[Lots of prescription advise available in the DUmp.]
Everyone used the Greek shoulder bag in the 60's
I used one like that in the 70's
It had a photo of Harpo Marx on the side. Still have it somewhere.
[Now it has a photo of Karl Marx on the side.]
Anyone who would wear striped pants like Hillary is wearing in the top photo should be immediately disqualified to run for president.
[Let's not dwell on the pants of the past, but focus on the pantsuits of the future.]
They take a certain flair to pull off in this day and age, though.
[Bill hasn't found a pair of pants he can't pull off.]
The more liberal students, often derogatorily referred to as "green-baggers" after the dark green book bags they carried, particularly pushed the limits of administrative tolerance.
[Book bag carrying communists.]
Btw, here's a new one: Women didn't carry book bags because it makes one's hips look wide.
[What's Hillary's excuse now?]
As always, there are a few outliars who claim otherwise, but then, they dodged sniper fire on the way to the student union, too.
[Years later, while visiting Bosnia, Hillary would use the skill she gained in college.]
A drunk vomiting up a teaspoon of bile . . .
[Leave Will Pitt out of this.]
And she 'hurled' it
[Book bags come and go, but drama queens are timeless.]
Hillary looks like Meg Griffin
[Yet another blow to Meg's self-esteem.]
Hmmmm....she was kinda hot.
[Now I'm going to hurl.]
I can't get past those awful pants
[Who would want to?]
The only scandal here is those pants.
[And those pantsuits.]
