Hawks of a Feather Flock Together

In further proof there ain’t a dimes worth of difference between the two parties, Financial Times is reporting that Rupert Murdoch is going to host a fundraiser for Hillary the Hawk.

Rupert Murdoch, the conservative media mogul whose New York Post tabloid savaged Hillary Clinton’s initial aspirations to become a US senator for New York, has agreed to host a political fundraiser for her re-election campaign.

The decision underlines an incongruous thawing of relations between Mr Murdoch and Mrs Clinton, who in 1998 coined the phrase “vast rightwing conspiracy” to denounce critics of her husband, such as Fox News, the conservative cable channel owned by Mr Murdoch’s News Corporation.

Mr Murdoch will host the fundraiser, due to be held by July, on behalf of News Corp.

Fox News, Hillary Clinton, Rupert Murdoch and George W. Bush look like a bunch of peas sharing the same pod to more and more Americans. I simply hope they wake up before election day.

I like tasteful cigars, private property, American whiskey, fast cars, hot women, pre-bailout Jeeps, fine dining, worthwhile literature, low taxes, original music, personal privacy and self-defense rights -- but not necessarily in this order.

  1. The neocons like rats abandoning a sinking ship are jumping over to the demothugs now that they think that the republicraps are toast.

  2. Yeah, but… hobnobbing with the Hildabeast?? And raising money for it, as well?

    Yep, we’re doomed. The Harridan is going to run, and could win. Hello, socialist utopia, if not “glorious workers’ paradise”.

  3. Not terribly surprising, given that both parties stand for continued warfare in the Middle East, massive growth in power and scope of the government, less freedom, and dispensing money and favors to their preferred groups.

    So you can take your choice between the Republicans who will continue borrowing to pay for it and generating massive inflation, or you can take the Democrats who will raise taxes to obscene levels and drive the private sector straight into the ground.

    Of course, if your as rich as Mr. Murdoch (or Mr. Bush, or Ms. Clinton) you don’t have to worry about what the consequences of your actions will do to the rest of America.
