Hillary's just a "good ol' girl"

Or is she channeling Dick Cheney??

While touring the Hoosier State yesterday, Hillary Clinton put on her "good 'ol girl" act" touting her experience with guns and hunting to crowds around the state. Clinton sucked up to "gun-toting liberals" on Saturday by hinting that she has some experience of her own pulling triggers. No mention of whether or not she was "packing" during her hair-raising mission to Bosnia.

And, as usual, she used the occasion to twist Barack Obama's statement on Friday regarding the bitterness and hopelessness many feel here in the rust belt in an attempt to sway voters. It seems to me that Hillary doesn't have much to say these days, so she instead pounces on every statement uttered by Obama that she feels she can spin into votes for her:

"I disagree with Sen. Obama's assertion that people in our country cling to guns and have certain attitudes about trade and immigration simply out of frustration," she began, referring to the Obama comments on small-town Americans that set off a political tumult on Friday.

She then introduced a fond memory from her youth.

"You know, my dad took me out behind the cottage that my grandfather built on a little lake called Lake Winola outside of Scranton and taught be how to shoot when I was a little girl," she said. "You know, some people now continue to teach their children and their grandchildren. It's part of culture. It's part of a way of life. People enjoy hunting and shooting because it's an important part of who they are. Not because they are bitter."

Clinton said she has hunted ducks.

Later in the day, Clinton visited a restaurant in Crown Point, Indiana and shared a shot of whiskey with the locals:

Clinton stood by the bar and took a shot of Crown Royal whiskey. She took one sip of the shot, then another small sip, then a few seconds later threw her head back and finished off the whole thing. Clinton later sat down at a table and enjoyed some pizza and beer, and called over Mayor Tom McDermott of Hammond, Ind., to come join the table.

"Every time I get around you we start drinking, senator," the mayor exclaimed. Clinton nodded and raised her glass. "It's Saturday night, though, Tom," she said.

So, in summary, the elite Clinton would have you believe that she's a regular ol' gun carrying gal who likes to hang around the bar and do shots. Right. . .
Just what we need in a president, emulation of Dick Cheney and pandering to the worst in people.

I'm not sure which "worst in people" you're referring to - guns or drinking. God knows neither one of us has much room to talk about the evils of either one, other than to give first-hand testimony! ;)
