First up – thanks to Pirate’s Cove for the blog of the day honors!
With this evening’s closing of the Democrat’s convention, we will move well and truly into the general election season. And, in the true spirit of the season, the campaign of Her Imperial Majesty has already dusted off the Dirty Tricks Book. They are now trying to bully television stations to keep them from running this ad by the Rebuilding America Now SuperPAC:
Now, the Dowager Empress of Chappaqua is understandably reluctant to have her big-bucks speeches brought to light; she and her Imperial Consort have made hundreds of millions of dollars in “speaking fees,” not to mention Bill’s $16,400,000 gig as “Honorary Chancellor” of Laureate Education, a lucrative gig (!) that required Bill to do… well… nothing.
But the attempt to quash this ad is beyond the pale. Refute it with an ad of your own, Your Imperial Majesty, but unless you’re advocating tossing the First Amendment into the same trash can in which you intend to deposit the Second, Fourth, Fifth and Tenth, then keep your grubby mitts off this ad.
Is there nothing beneath Her Imperial Highness’ campaign apparatus? (Yes, that is a rhetorical question.)
