Life Imitates Art: Hillary's 21st Century Schizoid Man

Cat's foot iron claw
Neuro-surgeons scream for more
At paranoia's poison door.
Twenty first century schizoid man.

Blood rack barbed wire
Politicians' funeral pyre
Innocents raped with napalm fire
Twenty first century schizoid man.

Death seed blind man's greed
Poets' starving children bleed
Nothing he's got he really needs
Twenty first century schizoid man.

Gee, you just don't get good songwriting like this these days do you? Of course as you well know this is the title song from King Crimson's epic progressive rock album In the Court of the Crimson King. Guys like me used to smoke ditch-weed to records like this. Hey, don't judge, life is a journey and stuff like this helped make me the brilliant, self-actualizing guy that I am today. But my what positive images it evokes. It just makes me warm and fuzzy all over, but hey, good art does that. You know this could very well be Hillary's theme song should she actually pull off the nomination (Don't Stop Believing just seems a little too pleading for the consummate bullshit-artist family). 

Yes the Republicans are not the only ones schizoid these days. Media Matters is all in for Hillary lumping in the NY Times with the hated and reviled Faux News (I love it!). is all about "Run Elizabeth Run", which is really funny considering moveon was started to persuade folks to "move on" from all the trim Bill was getting in the Oval Office. "At this point in time what difference does it make" Bill told Hillary at the time (by some accounts). Democratic Underground mentions Martin O'Malley going overseas for some paid speeches, but doesn't hit him too hard, hedging their bets I would imagine. NOW is all Hillary all the time which is to be expected. If you got a penis NOW doesn't want to know about it, in fact you had best be sticking it in another guy's ass otherwise don't come-a-calling (I know, poor choice of words). 

This is so SO good and it can only get better! What you have here is the irresistible force and the immovable object. The Clintons have been at this game a long time. They know everybody. They have long memories and they take no prisoners. The hard left is not that enamored with Hillary but they see no viable alternative waiting in the wings. Warren is their girl but she won't play outside of the Northeast. O"Malley has zero name recognition and no organization. They fear Hillary has so much baggage she will get slaughtered in the general but how in the world do you dump her? The Clintons could take half the party (and money) with them and then the Dems would indeed be in for an ass whipping (remember 2010 & 2014).

So it's all good! Let's just sit back and enjoy Hillary's and (one would hope) the Democrat Party's funeral pyre. Anybody got a light?
