Suzanne Somers’s new face is a great cause for concern. At least for me. It’s emblematic of the body image dysmorphia that ostensibly affects people who’ve received repeated cosmetic procedures. She looks like she either went through a windshield or is in the throws of life-threatening anaphylaxis. This new punum has been known to frighten small children and barnyard animals. I explain.
Next I discuss one of the most ridiculous statements ever made since “Love means never having to say your sorry.” Secretary of State Hilary Clinton’s interview with Denise Maerker of Televisa in Guanajuato, Mexico, on January 24, 2011, provided this jaw-dropping moment.
QUESTION: In Mexico, there are those who propose not keeping going with this battle and legalize drug trafficking and consumption. What is your opinion?
SECRETARY CLINTON: I don’t think that will work. I mean, I hear the same debate. I hear it in my country. It is not likely to work. There is just too much money in it, and I don’t think that – you can legalize small amounts for possession, but those who are making so much money selling, they have to be stopped. They can’t be given an even easier road to take, because they will then find it in their interest to addict even more young people. Mexico didn’t have much of a drug problem before the last 10 years, and you want to keep it that way. So you don’t want to give any excuse to the drug traffickers to be able legally to addict young people. [Emphasis supplied]
I kid you not. “There is just too much money in it.” And not a word from Jon Stewart or any of the professional left. Had Sarah Palin uttered those words, she’d be pilloried. So why not pillory Hillary?
