    She is a private citizen, and commands a good price for speaking. I don’t see the problem with this – unless it’s only ok if you’re a Republican?

    This is nothing new and she’s not the only one who does it…so why should we be surprised??

    Everybody knows she will be running. So why does G&S allow her this podium AND pay for it? I smell a rat…

    To quote Kathleen Parker, the Republican pundit:

    Ms. Know-It-All, the anonymous political advice columnist whose identity remains a popular Georgetown cocktail party guessing game, is known to live up to her title now and then. Herewith a correspondence worth sharing.

    Dear Ms. Know-It-All
    It appears the witch Hillary Rodham Clinton is going to run for president. It makes my skin crawl to think of her and that husband of hers back in our White House, not to mention that they are Marxists like Obama and want to turn us into Sweden, for God’s sake. It’s not too soon for Republicans to marshal our forces for a little shock and awe when the Hildebeast finally announces. How can we stop her?

    Signed, A proud, God-fearing, right-wing wacko bird.

    Dear Wacko:

    Thank you for what seems to be your sincere interest in participating in our country’s health and welfare. And thanks, too, for contacting me, because you need to hear what I have to say. You might want to sit down for this. If you’re on anti-anxiety medication, all the better.

    You are, how shall I put this? Idiotic seems too strong, so I’ll go with a foolish little man.

    “The witch Hillary”? Yes, I saw the little photo on Drudge with Hillary wearing a witch’s hat. Clever! And on Halloween, too. The headline suggested that someone somewhere should be upset that she apparently earned close to $500,000 for two speeches for Goldman Sachs.

    I do believe I detect the scent of envy. Is that the best you’ve got? I don’t think I heard you folks express outrage when Sarah Palin was paid $100,000 a clip, and she was just a short-term governor and a failed vice-presidential candidate. Ronald Reagan once was paid $2 million for two 20-minute speeches by a Japanese manufacturing company.

    It makes sense. G&S are responsible for the meltdown of the global market, heck, if the Euro fails now, they can claim responsibility for that too thanks to their efforts in Greece. Any decent President would do something about them.

    Unless they bribe her now before she gets elected.

    Disgusting.

    When it comes down to it both parties cater to the top 10%. However the Democrats will sometimes listen to what remains of the Middle Class. Both ignore the Poor since they don’t have money to give them. Corruption thy name is money = speech.

    This is peanuts compared to what G&S will be offering in ‘free speech’ contributions during the campaign.

    G-S gave $400,000 to her campaign in 2008. Chelsea married a G-S man.

    So no surprises here.
