The end of Cowboy Diplomacy and let the Pajama Party begin!

Yup, that is what the former First Lady and Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton declared would be the result on her being elected President of the United States (POTUS) during her time on The View today 10-15-2007.

She went on to describe how in her delusion… er… ummm… vision, we will link arms with Nations around the world.

Whaaaa… We are going to link arms like in some drug fueled Woodstock dance? We are going to dance through the daisies in the rain singing in perfect harmony! We can braid each other’s hair, burn bras and sleep together in a communal bed. Just a minute, let me wash my eyes out with muriatic acid.

Maybe candidate Clinton was thinking of something like A Chorus Line or The Rockettes. A whole group of doplomats (sic) doing the high step, linked arm in arm wearing garters and little maid outfits, feather boas and matching headdresses.

This is what I have come to call a “Pajama Party” idea. If you have participated in or heard about an adolescent female Pajama Party (also known as a “Slumber Party” or a “Sleepover”). At these events, the participants do a lot of giggling, tittering and imaginative talking. Long term plans are made with the football team captain or quarterback. The class president or some other admired “hunk” that they know (or don‘t know). Weddings are planned, children are named, the number of children are declared, a house with a white picket fence is described. It is lovely.

None of these Pajama Party fantasies come true. They can’t real life gets in the way of fantasies. Hunks have B.O. too, they get sick, they have a mind of their own. They don’t like blonds or brunettes or redheads. They don’t want to be married to their mother. They go bankrupt, lose their hair or find some 19 year-old who will do those kinds of things.

See, the way I view it, Candidate Clinton is doing the VERY same thing she accuses the current President Bush of doing in Iraq. She has a “perfect plan” and doesn’t realize that any (Pajama Party) plan sounds like it will work until “the boots hit the ground”. “Linking arms” is good talk on The View. It is so unrealistic in real life. Nations have their own best interests in their minds. The World is a competitive place. Candidate Clinton seems to not understand this. She seems to believe that she will be the next Princess Di. The only issue that is glaring to me is that Candidate Clinton actually wants to be Queen of the World (ala Leonardo in Titanic). She will say or sell out anyone or anything to be able to wave from the motorcade again.

I am concerned that she believes the story of Marie Antoinette saying, “Let them eat cake!” Candidate Clinton seems to believe that the Federal treasury has no limits. She seems to believe she will have unlimited access to the Federal checkbook. More Pajama Party thinking.

Now, back to the adolescent Slumber Party. One common theme is the desire to have their hunk ride in on a white horse and save them. What is the theme of most movies? A lone hero, or a group of heroes coming in to save the day. Think about ANY western, or any hero or super hero movie. I mean ANY movie. Indiana Jones, Star Wars, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Speed, Rocky, Die Hard, Beverly Hills Cop, Home Alone, Bruce Lee’s Enter the Dragon and even National Lampoon’s Vacation all have a hero who works pretty much alone, comes in to save the day. Even if he is a little bit of a bumbler.

I am sure that Candidate Clinton in her Pajama Party thinking believes that the world leaders will join together arm in arm to make her Queen of the world.

Reality says that it is the Cowboys that get things done. They don’t do it alone, but they lead the charge. Donald Trump, Patton, FRD, Eisenhower, Washington, Lincoln, GW Bush and Reagan all got things done.

Where is former President Clinton on this list? Well he is having his own Pajama Party with a 19 year-old... under the desk.
