Who’s a better mom – Hillary Clinton or Sarah Palin?

The big family values of the Republican Party and it’s little sister, the Tea Party, need to be transferred to the Democrats based on the current life story of Chelsea, daughter of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Bristol, daughter of half-term Governor of Alaska and Beauty Pageant runner-up,Sarah Palin.

The irony of it all, hard-working mom Hillary Clinton, who took heat as First Lady because she didn’t share her favorite cookie recipes and talk about rising sourdough, should be the mom of a Stanford and Oxford University grad, who is getting married on July 31, at the age of 30? She’s NOT pregnant! She has a great job at Avenue Capital Group, a hedge fund, and her husband-to-be is a 32-year-old investment banker — Marc Mezvinsky — who has NEVER stripped naked for Playgirl or any other form of media. Sarah’s future son-in-law, 20, on the other hand, after his adventures as a nude model and D-Lister Kathy Griffin’s date, is currently unemployed but is planning to get his GED.

Furthermore, Chelsea’s wedding, which 400 guests are expected to attend, is a personal and PRIVATE affair. In other words, the photos and story are NOT being sold for the cover of Us Weekly, unlike Bristol Palin and her baby daddy Levi Johnston’s.

Parenting has to be the one the hardest jobs in the world and the naked truth has to be that Hillary Clinton is a successful mother.

    Both suck equally. Hillary raised a war-supporting piece of crap just like she is.

    Only thing Rush Limbaugh ever did right is to attack Hillary’s dog-faced spawn, who had the gall to deride those who were critical of Hillary’s vote to invade Iraq by saying “I guess you all had ESP and knew there were no WMD’s”.

    No you little piece of shit, we read and used our brains.

      In rides Oso, the Snark Knight!


      Chelsea’s husband-to-be is an investment banker for the evil empire. (Goldman Sachs) so despite his nebbishy GQ-ness I am not feeling the love.

      I have to say that neither Bristol or Chelsea are matched in attractivess-level by their beaus. But power attracts…

    She’s a Clinton so she can’t be worth much ya know there.

    Would not be surprised to see Palmer’s kid’s wedding be shown on the tube. In fact I’m expecting that.

    I consider Bill Clinton once of our greatest statesmen. I also consider his presidency in the top five. I care nothing whatsoever about the Monica L. nonsense. Nor would I ever call a child names, regardless of her parents.

      Agreed Mike.
      Like Oso I remember Chelsea’s comments, but honestly it was more than brains, it was experience that I believe led Oso, you and me and many of us to question the march/bamboozle into the ongoing Iraq war. “Experience” Chelsea doesn’t have because she is the child of lifelong politicians and grew up in the White House. It’s life experience that we have and that she never will have. She’s not a normal kid by any measure, and never will be.
      It was experience that led me to believe that George W. Bush, Donald Rumsfeld, and Dick Cheney were opportunistic liars riding a wave of 9/11 guile-hysteria all the way to the bank on the backs of America’s soldiers, not any force of cognition although I’d like to think I’m too smart to be fooled by the likes of them. I didn’t have any facts to counter their fictional WMDs except Joe Wilson’s Op Ed in the New York Times. -Just my hard earned skepticism.
      We should all remember Chelsea is just somebody’s kid, she stuck up for her mom; selfish and short-sighted as that might be in the bigger and logical scheme of things, but I’m about as concerned about her and what she believes as I am about Liz Cheney: -as in not at all. Not one bit.
      Is Hilary a good parent? I suppose. Chelsea doesn’t seem insane or greatly maladjusted. As for Palin’s kids? They just don’t seem very bright or forward thinking and that’s no crime (it should be someday). Sarah Palin might be a great mother, who the hell knows?
      It’s a non issue to me since I didn’t have to grow up in either of their houses and I don’t think it has anything to do with policymaking or the mental acumen necessary to run an administration or a country, it just relates, as Holte is pointing out by raising the comparison to the professed profile of the nation’s two parties and the PR bullshit they attempt to distract the nation with every election cycle.
      “Vote for me, because you’ll like me more.”
      Bottomline, I don’t care if Sarah Palin beats her kids, or slept with her associates: I just want to know how everyone can ignore that this woman quit her job as governor of Alaska and keeps talking like she’s some kind of political leader when she is clearly a manifestly ridiculous public figure.

    WOW, Oso. I didn’t think you had this in you. Chelsea Clinton was dogged her whole teen life in the WH. People calling her a dog, telling jokes about Janet Reno being her dad. She and I attended Stanford overlapping for a couple years, and ran with some of the same crowd. She is NOTHING like a war hawk. I think that whole thing during the campaign was just that, campaign talk, wanting her mom to come out on top. I would have done the exact same thing except more snarkily if that had been my mother.

    As to the question who is the better mom. Well, since I am not a mom I can only give what I think. Clinton’s have done an exceptional job managing to keep their kid out of the limelight for political reasons. she hasn’t been in the tabloids other than silly stuff that meant nothing and she managed to not be a drug user or get pregnant before she may have wanted to. Maybe she has, but she kept it to herself. Seems to me they are all, the Clinton’s, very private people away from the job. That is so different than the Wasillabillies, that want the attention from everywhere.

      Chelsea was 12 years old when the Clinton’s moved into the White House, she was derided, called ugly, laughed at by Clinton haters, apparently there are more of them than I thought, I have yet to meet an ugly kid, lots of ugly adults, but the politics of Chelsea and Bristol’s parents apart, the 10 years years Bill was running for, and being president, Hillary was a single parent to her daughter and she did a fine job.

        AYUP, she grew out of the awkward, ugly looks(in some minds) phase. We all do, for the most part. Not only the presidency but the AK governors mansion. She has basically been in the spotlight, without being in it her whole life. That is her mom and dads doing keeping it real for her.

    If people who I respect so much feel this way, I’m wrong then. I’ve disliked Hillary because of her foreign policy for years, and thought it wrong of her daughter to defend it. But as Jess points out, she was defending her mother not the policy so I take back what I said.

      Kudos for the walkback after thinking about it. Very classy Mr O. Thing is, put your daughters in her place. Say you were some kind of muckety muck and people dogged your kids because you had to say lay off 40k people at your company. Not a fair shake for the lovely daughter di Oso is it? I always try and think, sometimes I am successful even, putting myself in the other person’s shoes for a second. They did nothing and Chelsea, Bristol, Tripp, Blitzen, Donner and the rest of the moose clan, forget all their names sorry, they never had a choice who and what situation they were born into. Little while ago remember we all were getting on Beckerhead because he was taunting young Malia Obama for asking her daddy had he plugged the oil well yet. We were pissed and making comments like how could he have done this to a child. Same exact thing, those two girls have been vilified also by certain news outlets as thugs, classless girls.

      Oh and not for nothing. I am keeping you in mind for a future ex husband because you totally got that I made a little sense and were willing to change your point of view and said so 🙂 My current, future ex husband is not as compromising. He will just argue till he goes blue in the face, even when he is wrong.

        LOL Jess, thank you on many levels. I am good in the ex-husband role, my ex likes me better than when we were married. Mostly cause I took the kids off her hands, but partly cause I can fix stuff around the house.

    The Clinton’s foreign policy was little different from Bush’s. The sanctions killed as many as half a million Iraqis, mostly children.The sanctions were an obscenity, to ban foodstuffs and medicine for political reasons was shameful. Clinton could have put a stop to them. Yes it would have cost him politically, but so what? It would have saved lives. Both Clintons were more concerned with political standing than humanity. In this they were no different from the majority of elected officials and in fact the majority of the US citizenry, nevertheless they have blood on their hands and it was wrong. Parents defend children, children defend parents. But it is this massive death of children which caused me to write what I did. It has pained me for years, the deaths of children guilty of nothing more than being born between the Tigris and the Euphrates.

      I hear you. Just stop cheapshotting ugly girls, Oso, it’s just not gentlemanly.
      …But seriously, there’s much the Clinton administration still has to answer for, but I couldn’t bring myself to equalize the two as tempting as it is even in the context of the Gulf wars and sanctions. Remember that Bush himself was really in fact just the front for a Nixon-era cadre that wanted to do a hell of a lot more than they were able, although they did far more damage than they actually thought possible thanks to ‘We The People’ being asleep at the wheel. The Bush administration’s attacks on the Constitution almost remdered it completely ceremonial, which for a country with a military this size could have paved the way for a World War, or a war against “the muslim world” which is something I’m sure Cheney’s pals would have just loved, as it would have lined their pockets with even more money.
      I’m not sure the damage the Bush administration did to the rule of law and representative government in this republic can be reversed in my life time.

      Good point about the sanctions, then there was NAFTA which BTW caused I believe a 600 million dollar bailout of American Banks cuz Canada and Mexico wouldn’t or couldn’t pay their share…

    Clinton for president in 2018. Screw the constitution…. 🙂 🙂

      I was totally against her last time but I tell you what, my admiration for her has increased a million percent since then. I would vote for her in a heartbeat. I’m hoping smilin’ Joe decides, he has had enough by 2012 and PO turns to Hillary and says hey you want to be my second and she says yes. Oh and I hope Shakespalin is the candidate on the other side just to see the landslide, even Alaska and Utah. I can dream can’t I?

        She locked up the Hispanic vote in Calif. La Opinion called her “Hilaria” in a very affectionate way.

          She would get this mutts vote, time and money if she decided to run in 2016. She really has changed the way the world is seeing us now and in a good way, with the job she is doing at state.
