Back To Back Vote-Ola
By: Lee Kent Hempfling
Here we go again. And yes, Hillary Clinton really is in this thing.
The dust has barely settled over the Vote-Ola flap no one wants to talk about; where everything was fine and peachy because money was going to be paid to a company that was not the person endorsing Hillary Clinton for (gasp) President.
Golly, it worked so well then, it looks like Vote-Ola is becoming a politically acceptable trend. Hillary Clinton is the one most adept at using the ploy but for some strange reason the Associated Press keeps watching her do it and talking about it. That doesn’t sound like AP.
I’ll ‘quote’ the location this story was found at here: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/ as it might not be there long. Huffington Post has a habit of catching articles about their persons of interest after they have already managed to be picked up by search engines. This story made it to the front page of the Huffington Post though, so that is how I am convinced the little slyness of a con job is now an acceptable political tool.
Tom Vilsack, remember his campaign for President?; dropped out and was there when Hillary needed him. The question is, why was he there? According to the Associated Press (yet again with no named source for the news topic) Vilsack sold his soul. But wait! Hillary’s money would not go to Vilsack. It would pay off his campaign debt. (But wait again, a campaign is an ‘organization’: wouldn’t one campaign buying off the debt of another campaign that had no assets be causing a takeover, a merger, or a new union, one soul at a time?)
Good ol’ Tom Vilsack didn’t sell ‘his’ soul. He sold the soul of every supporter he previously had. Those people invested in him and his ‘vision’ and instead, he bailed and then he wailed and that showed his price. It is no different than the disk jockey who waves his big ratings in the face of the record rep to get a higher payoff to play a junk song, or has the station pay his girlfriend to hide employment from the state disability department. It is illegal to sell your favor under the table if you ‘spin records’* for a living or even if you have someone else receive your payment. (*OK that was an old time radio station, but deal with it.)
In “Clinton Aids Vilsack With Campaign Debt”, AP reporter Mike Glover actually spills the beans on this untoward behavior. He does it with a straight face but the fact that he’s doing it at all has to say something.
Billed as ‘help’ for the Governor, the act of buying an endorsement, for cash paid, to reduce political debt, is outright something.
AP lists the other two recent similar ‘events’ including South Carolina state Senator Darrell Jackson, and new co-chair of Clinton’s states effort, Bill Shaheen. But those are the ones AP has told us about. Do you really think Hillary is just dabbling in endorsement shopping? It isn’t her money. She didn’t earn it.
She has to be a downright Endorsement Shopping Queen by now. The master of wag-the-dog was her husband at one time. The fatal flaw of that talent though, is always the inability to see the forest for the trees, from the rear end of a dog.
Like an upside-down, bouncing ball, (think about that) what started as unknown, still is to most. Newt Gingrich, Bill O’Reilly, Bob Novak and now Ann Coulter in her latest piece (source) have all raised most of the issues but their knowledge is safe, as reactionary people: those most easily controlled by others, are pretty much always doomed to do just that.
People who know the most are those who’s heads are offered bowed. While some are seeing a horizontal blade, a select few others are seeing a vertical honor. Knowing what to do with what one knows, means one knows at least more, than someone who knows little.
People who know little are the easiest to entice, especially if you offer free knowledge, or free healthcare, or free “get out of jail free cards.”[See Coulter] It makes for the obvious to be obscure, until it hurts (ie: the consequence of liberalism, socialism). But luckily, the country is not made up of those people: as a majority, yet. The liberal’s religious devotion to their own right to choose, has curtailed their winning by attrition. And money, is always a ‘backup-plan’ to deception.
