Sometimes These Things Write Themselves

I jest you not:

Lynn Forester de Rothschild, a prominent Hillary Clinton supporter and member of the Democratic National Committee’s Platform Committee, will endorse John McCain for president on Wednesday, her spokesman tells CNN.

“This is a hard decision for me personally because frankly I don't like him,” she said of Obama in an interview with CNN’s Joe Johns. “I feel like he is an elitist. I feel like he has not given me reason to trust him.”

Forester is the CEO of EL Rothschild, a holding company with businesses around the world. She is married to international banker Sir Evelyn de Rothschild. Forester is a member of the DNC’s Democrats Abroad chapter and splits her time living in London and New York.

So, here's this woman named Lynn Forester de Rothschild. No one knows who she is, really -- or cares. She marries a guy from whom she appends their last name. The guy is named Sir Evelyn. Yes, this guy. She's the CEO of a company that just so happens to be named after her husband and her -- yes, named after them. She lives in both London and New York.

And this woman, whom nobody cares about, is calling a press conference to declare that she is endorsing John McCain. The first question from the press will likely be, "Ummm, who are you again?"

But a man named Barack Obama, whom until just a few years ago when his books sold really well, was just your average joe -- HE is the elitist.

Well, OK then. Whatever floats your yacht.

Dear lord. McCain was right about one thing (gasp): this election is not about issues.

It should be.

But it's not.

If it were, this lady would have supported Clinton because of her stance on certain issues. Like, say, women's rights. Clearly, that is not the case.


When did Americans get so STUPID?
