Cross Sharon Stone off my list
“I think Hillary Clinton is fantastic, but I think it is too soon for her to run (for president)…Hillary still has sexual power, and I don’t think people will accept that. It’s too threatening.”— actress Sharon Stone, clearly in some altered mind-state, on sHillary.
One adjective I would not use to describe the former first lady and faux-Dem Senator from NY is sexy. Not that there’s anything wrong a politician projecting with a healthy dose of sex appeal. It’s just not there in this case.
No, sHillary’s problem, Sharon, is that she is a craven politician who is willing to abandon any and all core values if it will garner a few precious winger votes and acquire some fantasy “values voters” cred. She’s the poster child for Dems interested in their own political ascendancy, pols who have every intention of tossing gays under the bus each and every time because they don’t have a spine to discuss and reframe the issue — and take it away from the Rethugs. She isn’t fooling anyone and she can’t win.
Compare and contrast with…
“I find Hillary to be a great disappointment. She’s lost her progressive following because of her caution and centrist approach. It bothered me when she voted for the war. There were brave people who didn’t. She’s not worse than other politicians, but I hoped she would be better. What America is looking for is authentic people who want to go into public service because they strongly believe in something, not people who are [just] trying to get elected.”— Susan Sarandon
