Hillary, PLEASE Skip Trump’s Inauguration

January 18, 2017

Dear Hillary,

What the hell are you and Bill thinking? After all the poor decisions during the campaign that caused you to blow it with the Electoral College, how can you add this boneheaded move to the pile? NOBODY wants to see you behind Trump as he gets sworn in to the job you should have gotten — except maybe Trump.

Forget the baloney about the “peaceful transfer of power.” That’s Obama’s hand-off to make, not yours, not Bill’s. Obama will have George W. Bush and Jimmy Carter watching his back. Three former presidents kowtowing to Trump will be stomach-churning enough.

Besides, Trump has no interest in peace. He never hesitates to verbally attack countries, world leaders (exception Putin), and even individual American citizens. And on Friday, this country hands him all our bombs and our military might. Do you really want to stand there and condone that?

You know Trump won’t resist gloating and smirking at you as he takes the job you worked so hard for. And when he does, the heads of the 2,864,974 more Americans who voted for you over Trump will explode. It will be the last straw after having the Electoral College spit on their votes.

Your presence in Washington will only stoke fury in hundreds of thousands of people who will be there on Saturday to protest Trump and every abomination he stands for. Do you really want to do that? Don’t you think Trump himself has already given people plenty to be incensed about without giving him the opportunity to diss you one more time?

Dozens of congress members won’t be there, nor will your successor, Secretary of State John Kerry. I’m begging you and Bill to follow their example and stay home.


Donald Trump is Toast

October 10, 2016

By Karen

George Bernard Shaw said, “I learned long ago, never to wrestle with a pig. You get dirty, and besides, the pig likes it.”

That sums up the second debate between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. It was the highlight of Trump’s weekend of being trampled in a Republican stampede for the exits after a 2005 Access Hollywood tape surfaced of Trump talking like a pig about women.

Donald’s dirt is dropping so fast now, who can keep up?

Trump started out more subdued, but it couldn’t last. He was soon pacing, scowling, interrupting, whining that the moderators were unfair and not picking on Hillary enough, and sniffling 80 times (by my count).

Turns out sniffling is his debate style. I noted that he often sniffed when he was about to, or had just, said something untruthful or particularly nasty.

Die-hard Trump lovers think he won, excusing the rehash of threadbare old stump content, complete with the usual exaggerations and boasts, fact-free and plan-free.

Now that Trump is engineering every week to be a bad week, his campaign is down for the count.

In a last gasp, he dug up some women from Bill Clinton’s past. Trump wanted to seat them with his family so they’d be front and center, but it didn’t happen. Sex scandals lose their fizz when all the players are grandparents.

Besides, Bill’s not running for president. Whatever Hillary said about those women, she said as a wife who’d been cheated on. Did Trump really think THEY were the victims?

As a ploy to embarrass and disgrace Hillary, it was a resounding fail.

But in the face of Trump’s blistering idiocy, Hillary showed a leader’s temperament and restraint, even as Trump persisted in slouching around behind her like a bratty kid.

Trump managed to maintain a poker-face while he sang the same old song: Everything’s the biggest “mess” and “disaster” in “the history of the world,” and Trump will make it all rainbows and lollipops for the very people he’s bashed — blacks, Muslims, Mexicans. “What have you got to lose?”

One of Trump’s best lows came when a Muslim woman asked him about labeling Muslims a threat to the country. Trump responded that he’d welcome Muslims if they’d just agree to spy on and rat out each other, then in the next breath he called for “extreme vetting” because Muslim immigration is “the great Trojan horse of our time.”

After the debate, Hillary shook Trump’s hand when she probably could have slapped the spray tan off his face, and then she approached the town hall participants to pose for selfies.

Trump made a beeline for his family because his show was over. Literally.


Rand Paul Can’t Tell a Predator from a Paramour

January 27, 2014

By Adele

That pinging sound you hear is Rand Paul’s loose screws hitting the floor. Yesterday on NBC’s Meet the Press, Paul told David Gregory he thinks that Republicans’ chronic misogyny is being overstated because Bill Clinton had a “predatory” affair with Monica Lewinsky back in 1995-97 when she was only 20.

Maybe it was an honest mistake that Paul tried to paint Monica as barely past jail bait, when she was actually 22. But we know that’s what Republicans do with easily provable facts — ignore them.

Paul went on to say that although it wasn’t Hillary’s fault, Bill’s affair should be OK to use against her if she runs for president in 2016.

In Paul’s telling, the Clinton-Lewinsky encounter was a one-off where Bill pounced on her like a total perv in — gasp! — “his office”!! Paul repeats the location several times. Watch him spout this nonsense with your own eyes.

By Monica’s account, it was an ongoing, consensual relationship. Oops, there’s another pesky fact to ignore.

If Bill Clinton had a problem with women, it was that he liked them TOO MUCH, and he was too eager to get hands-on with it. Clinton’s administration didn’t make a hobby of cooking up ways to disenfranchise women.

Bill may have liked to see women strip off their clothes, but he wasn’t into stripping them of their rights.

On the other hand, too many male Republican politicians like to sit in their offices and dream about all the pregnant women seeking abortions they’d like to see first being penetrated during medically needless transvaginal ultrasound procedures.

Or being raped and forced to bear their attacker’s baby if they get pregnant. Or spending their reproductive years popping out a baby every 9 months because they have no access to birth control.

Who sounds pervier now?

If you’ve been reading Cats Working, you may remember I was for Hillary Clinton before I was against her, and I defected because of her response to Bill’s infidelity.

But Rand Paul has catapulted me back onto Hillary’s bandwagon, if only because she’d never go on national TV and pull fake history out of her ass to make nonsensical points to justify indefensible positions.

If Hillary does decide to run, one can only hope Rand Paul is her opponent. It would be such a joy to watch her eviscerate him in a debate — which she undoubtedly could.

Only a walking brain-dead woman (I’m looking at you, Sarah Palin and Ann Coulter) could listen to male Republican trash talk about women and believe they don’t see women as a threat, and are actively scheming to send women back to the Dark Ages at the first opportunity.

 


Bill Clinton Knees the GOP

September 6, 2012

By Cole

If you go around talking trash about the Democrats, you’d better hope Bill Clinton doesn’t cross your path.

With wry wit and a casual, bantering manner, last night Clinton gave the Republicans a good one to the groin, refuting point for point — with facts — every lie they spouted at their convention.

It should be required viewing for all undecideds.

In the clearest terms, he laid out the choice voters face…

“In Tampa, the Republican argument against the President’s re-election was pretty simple: we left him a total mess, he hasn’t cleaned it up fast enough, so fire him and put us back in.”

The only gripe the talking heads had was that Clinton spoke too long. But I saw the speech’s length as a direct measure how much bullshit the GOP has been shoveling at us.

Unfortunately, Clinton won’t end Romney & Co.’s lies because they have nothing else. God forbid they delve into Romney’s background as a CEO, governor, or tax-paying citizen for anything useful to brag about.

Now we can compare the two parties in a nutshell…

The Democrats are proud to showcase their smart past president, using the knowledge he gained in foreign policy, the economy, healthcare, education, you name it, as a verbal lethal weapon.

The Republicans are hiding their past president under a rock. And Romney’s ONLY plan is to resurrect all the bone-headed George W. Bush strategies that got us into 2 wars and devastated the middle class.

Romney is calling the Democratic convention a “celebration of failure.” But he didn’t watch Michelle Obama’s speech, and he’s obviously ignoring the dozens of speakers reeling off Obama’s achievements — which Obama pulled off in spite of intransigent foes like Mitch McConnell and Eric Cantor constantly plotting against him.

Here’s an interview with Romney before Clinton spoke, reeling off all the shiny new statistics he’s just memorized for the upcoming debates.

(And notice his forehead is wrinkled again. Apparently, his eerily unlined face at the Republican convention was as phony as everything else about him.)


Haiti’s Lucky Bill Clinton’s on the Case

January 15, 2010

By Yul

Reports from Haiti should make everyone jump up from their comfy sofas and make a donation to the relief efforts. Obama seems on top of the situation, but his reaction reminded me of the android Data on Star Trek: Next Generation.

While I’m glad the cat keeps cool in a crisis, a little unscripted human response to such widespread suffering wouldn’t have been amiss.

And although Obama says the U.S. will continue to help Haiti as long as needed, who knows what he’ll do if Republicans balk? I could hear them whining that Haitians should be able to pick themselves up by their own bootstraps, and to provide them free medical care right now would lead to socialism.

I could see Obama giving up on his monetary pledge in exchange for a truckload of blankets and still claiming his relief effort a big success.

For the sake of Haiti, thank goodness Obama tapped Bill Clinton to head up fund-raising and aid, with George W. Bush as his token sidekick.

Bill’s the only one I’ve seen on TV talking about Haiti. Bush is probably having a Katrina moment in Texas while Laura tries to pound into his head that Haiti’s in REALLY BIG trouble.

Clinton — talking off the cuff to NBC and CBS — came across so strong, reassuring, AND empathetic. Nothing dry or clinical about his descriptions of the suffering. He totally gets the urgency of finding survivors and stabilizing life for the now-homeless. But he’s also hopeful about how quickly Haiti will recover with continuing help, because he says they were already on the right track when they were knocked flat.

I hope Obama has been taking notes.

PS: The William J. Clinton Foundation Web site makes it very easy to help. The Red Cross is also accepting donations.


OK, Hillary, You Can Stop Running Now

August 27, 2008

By Adele

Hillary Clinton did a great job of exciting the crowd at the Democratic convention – after she finished reminiscing about her own failed campaign and remembered Obama.

She proclaimed herself a proud mother, Democrat, Senator, American, and human female carbon-based life form. Everything but a proud wife, even as her husband beamed at her from the audience like Henry Higgins watching Eliza Doolittle ace the Embassy Ball.

Hillary’s comments about women’s struggles for equal rights seemed ironic after Michele Obama had to dumb herself down to seem more likable and non-threatening. The Obama camp is apparently catering to voters who can only accept Michele as first lady if she becomes the black version of Stepford Wife Laura Bush.

Even as Hillary said Obama is her candidate, the subtext was still, “Because I’m not the candidate.” She never went so far as to instruct her sycophants to support Obama, but merely implied that they should follow her lead.

So why does she still want her name up for the nomination? Why have her delegates waste their vote in an empty symbolic gesture that she herself considers moot?

By sending such mixed messages, Hillary still has some women swearing they’ll vote for John McCain out of spite.

Yeah, that’ll really show the Obamas. Let McCain get a few more neocon wackos on the Supreme Court so personal freedom can become a distant memory, and “equality” will come to mean only that anyone can carry a gun.

If the Clintons think they’ve hatched some brilliant Machiavellian scheme to set Hillary up for 2012, she’s doomed to fail even if she pulls it off. Following Bush’s lead, McCain will inflict more damage here and abroad in 4 years than Hillary or any other Democrat will be able to reverse in the following 8.

Thanks to Hillary’s ego and duplicity, McCain’s now free to pick a rotting corpse as his VP. He’s already sewn up a nice percentage of the hopelessly stupid vote.


Hillary Supporters, Grow Up, Get Over It

August 15, 2008

By Adele

Like Hillary Clinton, I was the lone white female trying to prevail over black and white male cats during the presidential primary season. We both failed.

Since Obama clinched the nomination, Yul’s been rubbing my nose in it. Poor Fred’s still washing the egg off his face after learning his boy Edwards is an inept tomcat.

I stuck with Hillary until she showed me she’s not the best option. Enough humans apparently agreed with me.

But since some of Hillary’s supporters won’t let go, she’s going to be pointlessly up for nomination at the convention.

While feigning graciousness, saying she’ll vote for Obama herself, Hillary has been encouraging her supporters to stir up trouble and oppose him by telling them they need to be “heard.”

They were heard. There just weren’t enough of them.

The Clintons have finessed prime-time speeches for themselves so they can foster the notion that they’re somehow letting Obama be the candidate. It’s a wonder Hillary didn’t demand that Obama lick her shoes.

What they’re really doing is wasting everybody’s time with a pathetic, greedy grab at the limelight, and giving Republicans unwarranted hope that McCain has a chance in November because the Democrats are too fractured.

Hillary’s stupid supporters who plan anti-Obama demonstrations should forget it, unless what they now want in the White House is an old dog who will keep us at war with somebody and do nothing for women but set them back a hundred years.


Obama, RUN from Hillary

June 4, 2008

By Yul

Obama probably knows his worst nightmare would be the “dream” ticket some are clamoring for, now that he’s won the nomination. The last pals he needs are Hillary and Bill Clinton.

There’s no escaping them as a package deal. Everyone knows they’d never let Barack live in the big house while they play second fiddle. They’ll be plotting his downfall — preferably sooner than later.

Hillary’s desire to sink Obama since he first became a serious contender runs deep. When it became mathematically impossible for her to win, she tried to cheat her way in using Michigan. Those poor schmucks had no other choice but her on their ballot — because she defied her party’s order to remove herself.

By pigheadedly running a race she clearly lost, she’s done nothing but make McCain look reasonable. If she helps McCain win in November, she thinks it will make her a shoo-in for 2012.

Now she only wants on the ticket so she and Bill can start “mentoring” Obama. Mentoring in Clinton-speak means seizing every opportunity to steal Obama’s limelight, undermining his decisions, and making him look like as big a fool as George Bush.

I think Hillary would even have the audacity as vice president to run against an incumbent Obama in 2012 instead of politely waiting her turn.

It’s clear even to a cat like me that Hillary wants to play both ends against the middle. I hope Obama withstands the pressure and picks anyone else as his running mate.

The only thing Hillary offers besides backseat driving lessons from Bill is a following of bigots and other stupid people she’s encouraged to reject a black president.

If Hillary’s fans really think McCain would be preferable to Obama, and she lets them throw another election to the Republicans so she can play St. Hillary and “save” them in 2012, then she’ll just remove any doubt that she places personal power above all else.


Hillary, Enough Already

May 12, 2008

By Adele

Has anybody told Hillary Clinton that every time she says she can win the Democratic nomination, she sounds just like George Bush talking about Iraq and many other things?

As a white female, it’s been painful for me to watch the nomination slip through Hillary’s claws, but it has. I accept that it’s time to support the black cat.

Even if Hillary and Bill somehow managed to rig the numbers – like counting Michigan when Obama wasn’t even on that ballot – everyone knows she’d just be stealing it. After the past two suspicious election outcomes, why is she trying for a third?

The last thing this country needs is another president who cheats and refuses to face reality. We’ll never get our reputation in the world out of the litterbox at this rate.

Hillary’s been saying, in so many words, that she’s the only candidate who appeals to racists and under-educated and ill-informed voters. Who wants them picking the president anyway?

At this point, it’s only diehard Clinton brainwash cases who believe Hillary would make a vastly superior president to Obama. To the rest of us, she just looks more maniacally power-hungry every day she persists.

Hillary’s expecting a big bounce out of the West Virginia primary tomorrow, where she’s supposedly leading 66 to 23 percent. So what? Since when did West Virginia become a trend-setter? Hell, even Virginia ignores West Virginia.

Hillary, it’s time to give it up. You still have a day job in the Senate. Stop distracting Obama. He needs to start making mincemeat of McCain and all his Bush-like ideas.


Hillary the Divorcée, Maybe

February 14, 2008

By Adele

If cats had the vote, as a white female feline, I confess I wouldn’t have voted for Hillary Clinton in our Virginia presidential primary. I want a woman in the White House, but I’ve decided Hillary isn’t the right one, after all. So call me a furry flip-flopper.

Hillary stayed with Bill Clinton after his series of affairs. Sure, she was mad as a wet cat at first, but then settled down like a doormat – like a Laura Bush. Now we’re supposed to believe she won’t take crap from anybody.

I don’t want a doormat for president. Even worse, I don’t want Bill romping around the White House getting into trouble again while Hillary’s busy trying to run the country.

I suspect Hillary kept Bill because she knew he’d be useful to her now. That makes her a user. And it makes me wonder who she’ll use next. As president, she’d have her pick.

Bill, who loves being called our “first black president,” has been talking trash about Barack Obama, basically biting the hands of a group who has always supported him.

When Bill’s fling with Monica Lewinsky went public, if Hillary had responded like a cat and said, “Enough’s enough, Bill. You’ve made a fool of me for the last time. Chelsea and I are outta here,” and divorced him, I’d respect her today.

Hillary had the chance to show the world she won’t tolerate abuse and she’s unafraid to go it alone – but she blew it.

Now, instead of campaigning on her own two feet and winning in spite of men, she relies on her philandering husband and pretends they’re living happily ever after. It reveals a basic lack of integrity.

If Obama wins the nomination, maybe Hillary will finally dump Bill because she’ll have nothing left to lose. And then her real motive for keeping him as long as she did will become clear.
