Stone Cleavage Ad For Hillary video
or go here for other configurations.·
What is the etymology of the video? What inspired it were statements by Hillary at a campaign event when she rebuffed a question which she deemed to have implied that she lacked what was necessary to confront "evil men" in the world. It wasn't long after that that she sparked a lot of "buzz" when she wore a blouse showing a very slight hint of "cleavage" while giving a speech in the senate. And of course, it had been quite a long time before that when actress Sharon Stone (in an effort to garner publicity for her then-being-released sequel to "Basic Instinct") held a news conference to announce to the world her considered political judgment that Hillary was simply "too sexy" to be president because "men" would be "intimidated" by her "sexuality." If this isn't material suitable for satire or parody, what is?
Surely depictions of the roundness of breasts without exposing their maternally functional portions is no more "riské" than the portions of breasts routinely exposed in pictures (and YouTube videos) of women in bikini tops. Only the hopelessly Puritanical could find these images offensive.
What about political correctness? Of course, one of the purposes of political satire and parody is to be "politically incorrect." But no sensible person could seriously take offense at the "husky" depiction of Hillary at the end of the video (to satirize her attempt to negate the implication of some that she's "not tough enough" to confront "evil men" in the world.) Would anyone have been offended by satirical depiction of Margaret Thatcher as a "muscle man" when she directed the war in the Falklans? Of course not, Her fans and admirers would have loved it. Wasn't Hillary trying to depict herself as being as "tough" as, if not tougher than, Thatcher?
So, what's the problem with the video? Is it "offensive" to Sharon Stone, who denigrates the sacrifices of our troops in statements to the foreign press (to garner more publicity for herself) with impunity in the form of the liberty associated with American citizenship protected by the very troops whose sacrifices she denigrates? So what if she's offended? One would hope she's deeply offended, even though such hope would be unrealistic given the fact that it's difficult, if not impossible, for shallow people to be "deeply" offended.

Footnote 01. I think Ed Morrissey coined the phrase "rearranging the icebergs," but he applied it in the context of evaluating the policies of Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama. I'm borrowing his phrase to describe what the emerging evidence of the potential beginning of a period of Global Cooling will force Al Gore to do as his Global Warming Goretanic is sunk by a growing ice-pack.
Footnote 02. A few examples of a growing ice-pack floating towards the Global Warming Goretanic include: Global temperatures drop; Snow cover over North American and Siberia greatest since 1966; Sun's cooling cycle spark fears of Global Cooling; Deepest freeze in Iceland in 10 years; Russian scientists predict Global Cooling coming soon. Looks like the Sun, with its warming/cooling periods, forgot to study the Da Gorgle Code.
