Part of the Zombie World Order ethos is to retaliate against attack, whether moral or physical. In this case, I am feeling beset by the quagmire of puns surrounding former Senator and mayoral candidate in NYC, Anthony Weiner.
Now, there is a version of football played by youngsters in my hometown called “Kill ‘Em Quick”. This was football at its most basic. Someone would pick up the football, and be immediately gang tackled and stripped of the ball. Then, someone else would pick up the ball, and the cycle would resume.
This game has possibly helped fashion my worldview, such as it is.
Longtime Hillary Clinton Aide and crony, the fashionable Humma Weiner (actually Huma, but I love Humma Weiner too much to let go) was taken to task by the Hillary machine for daring to compare herself and Anthony Weiner, Humma’s husband, to the other notoriously sexually profligate couple, Bill and Hillary Clinton. As often happens, another aide to the Clinton’s vicariously delivered the riposte via The New York Post:
“The Clintons are pissed off that Weiner’s campaign is saying that Huma is just like Hillary,’’ said the source. “How dare they compare Huma with Hillary? Hillary was the first lady. Hillary was a senator. She was secretary of state.”
First, this is a flawed statement. Hillary was a senator and state secretary, but only after her “stand by her man” role as the president’s wife. There is something undemocratic in stating the difference is in degree of social standing. Huma is a pretty accomplished woman, sorry, I mean Humma. Even if she wasn’t, though, might not any couple in a trailer park experiencing marital infidelity issues claim spiritual kinship with the Clintons, or are these sacred pharaohs of the state too sacrosanct in their bella amour to brook any comparison to lesser lights?
The problem here is not that the Weiners and the Clintons are dissimilar. The problem is they are too much the same. It must be like looking in a mirror for Bill and Hillary, and they might not like seeing their own reflection, especially when the people staring back at them are people Hillary and Bill consider to be beneath themselves.
*As always, the Zombie World Order endorses no political parties or candidates, except the Ron Paul/Jesse Ventura ticket for 2016. Sometimes I feel like there is this onslaught on taste, decency, and geometry, and I take to this blog, the only forum I have, really, to register my generalized disapproval.
