You are the dancing queen….

August 6, 2009

For those of you who are always badgering me for female Democratic Secretary of State gossip, do I have some juicy stuff for you!

The photos down below, from a party in Nairobi last night, show Secretary of State Hillary Clinton really cutting loose on the dance floor while hubby Bill was having no fun in North Korea.

But here’s the thing. Note the Hillary photo captions are carefully marked, NOT FOR ADVERTISING CAMPAIGNS!

What’s that about? Washington insiders know it’s a slap at former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, who now runs The Secretary of State Dance Studio and is desperate for pix to show the chicks who hold that position being hip and with-it.

Since these pictures are off limits until Hillary decides to open HER OWN dance studio, that leaves Madeleine scrounging for those shots of former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice doing the twist, and we’re already tired of those!

It appears that Secretary Clinton has tied an armless stick figure to her pantsuit as well.

So she’s in Kenya, is she? Hmmm….

Clinton takes trip to Kenya. Obama’s Kenyan birth certificate emerges… Coincidence? I don’t think so…

Wow, Bandage! That might explain the sweatshirt Hillary wore for much of the trip that said, “Birthers Rock!”

This is from Kenya’s leading newspaper.

Ihave 2 questions for you, but before that, the United States Constitution states that NO FOREIGN BORN CITIZEN can run for, and be president.

So if you, think that the US is not upholding the US constitution, you do not believe in it. In which case, you can move and go find some other country.

1) Is it that you do not believe in our powerful CONSTITUTION?
2) Or is it that the fact that Obama is BLACK a.k.a a real AFRICAN-American and is president, bothers you?

Thought so. Read the link above, in full, and learn.
