The Truth about Goats
British voters, despairing of the ineptitude of their own politicians, have been buoyed by the news that Hilary Clinton is on the verge of declaring her candidacy for Prime Minister. Up until now many had assumed Mrs Clinton would stick to the Presidential race, but she has tempted by the rigorous challenge of battling wits with the UK’s best or ‘shooting fish in a barrel’ as it is called.
Having narrowly missed out on the Democratic nomination in 2008, Mrs Clinton feels that she stands a better chance against ‘the numpties on the other side of the pond’. A spokeswoman for the former US Secretary of State said: ‘Do you try to follow the first African American President – who’d also been a three-term congressman, a civil rights attorney and constitutional lecturer – or do you try to go one better than Nick Clegg?.
Back on US soil, Mrs Clinton’s withdrawal will leave the Presidential race wide open for the Republican front runner, Ted Cruz, and his running mate, Jesus. While Clinton has also privately expressed concern about following her husband to the Oval Office, as nobody wants ‘sloppy-intern-seconds’.
Lured by the glamour of Westminster and the chance to watch Eric Pickles eat a pie, Mrs Clinton is confident she can challenge the established parties. However some journalists have asked if Mrs Clinton will intimidated by UKIP; yet her spokesman replied: ‘Scared of a maverick, anti-immigration, crypto-fascist? Have you met Sarah Palin?’
