One of the things that spooks me during this season of political foolishness is the quiet murmur of trial balloons rising from the camp of presidential hopeful Senator Hillary Clinton.

Most of us have known for a long time that this lady is the real horrorshow behind the Clinton Whitehouse. Her husband has never been famous for using the head that has the brain in it. But her... now that's one serious apparatchik for you. My friend Jim at Smoke On The Water recently jingled that little bell again. Of course, in his inimitable way he just came right out and used the big C word (yeah, called an American senator a communist... but let's face it, he, like most sailors, has good eyesight).

The trial montgolfier in question came from a newspaper article about a comment made by Mrs. Clinton that appeared in a San Francisco story where she said before a fundraiser of rich Democrats, "We're going to take things away from you on behalf of the common good." How appropriate that it should go up in the press of the far left in that town of lefties.

Jim's observation is apt: these are the words of a communist and it is a good thing that the gloves are finally off. It's a good thing that the American Communists are finally coming out of the closet. It's always a good idea to know the enemy.

What worries me is this -- Kerry is so addled that he may ask for her to join the ticket while they are at the convention so that he'll have a shot at winning. Why else would the Dems play this endless game of coy refusal all this time with no VP candidate in the slot? Think about it... Hillary and another weak man at the helm of the ship of state. Now there's a disturbingly familiar scenario, isn't it? It's a win/win for Lady Macbeth. If she loses she is automatically the frontrunner for the NEXT campaign, when she can run as the candidate for the front slot.

And... that's when the Republicans will be weakest, right? Jeb's older brother can only run twice. The governor of Florida is a nice guy but I'm not sure he is as tough as his older bro or his daddy in spite of the fact that this political dynasty has been the most successful group of Republican politicians in history.

Think about the TV script of the plucky First Lady. The first woman in the big arena. The first chance of the ladies to show all of us dopey guys that all we ever needed was a woman's touch. Unfortunately, this woman's touch comes from one of the coldest and hardest and most calculating liberal leftists in modern times. This is another political woman like Mao's wife. Just think... Robert Mugabe in a skirt. Now there's a picture right out of the Heart of Darkness. Scarey, eh?

Yeah, Jim. Thanks for giving me the willies.
