Meanwhile, What Is Hillary Clinton Doing These Days?

Add to Flipboard Magazine.

All this talk about the economy! Eh, Who cares, it’s finished, so how’s Hillary Clinton’s Dipolomatic Corps doing? She’s in Asia, you know! And oh, what a swell time she’s having, drinking tea with the Japanese royals, taking in Eastern culture, and most importantly, getting the hell out of Washington D.C. Best job in the world, and all she has to do is tell North Korea not to nuke anybody every few days. Here’s a clip from the Indonesian show Dahsyat, which is Indonesia’s version of TRL. Pick a random part of the video and watch for 30 seconds. The “Fun Part” comes at 4:30. [Daily Intel]

    Wait… she’s visiting Indonesia? But doesn’t this automatically turn people into Muslins?! Somewhere, a PUMA’s head is exploding.

  • sanantonerose

    Classical music? I can dig it. I do paperwork to Bach Unaccompanied cello suites, but played on the doublebass by Edgar Meyer. BECAUSE I AM RADICAL THAT WAY.

  • bago

    Fire up the phosphors and kick the oscillators! It’s time for some media!

  • Mr Blifil

    [re=247459]sanantonerose[/re]: Why not? They were originally written for a six-string instrument, not the four-string instrument currently in vogue. Plus Yo-Yo Ma mad a famous recording only to be told by Appalachian music “experts” UR DOIN IT RONG, so ha-ha he had to go back to the studio 20 years later and try to fix it. What a fucking jerk.

    So why not listen to them played on the doublebass? Or the kazoo or didgeridoo? What does it fucking matter what any of us does? Death is not so far away for most of us.

    Jakarta’s Hottest Housewives. Who knew?

  • Aurelio

    I can’t read the subtitles. How do you expect me to make lame jokes if I don’t understand what’s going on? Oh, I guess I can make lame jokes, anyway.

  • Bruno

    Damn Youtube freezing. Please tell me there’s a Rickroll in there…

  • TexasSecessionist

    Bitchin’ pantsuit.

  • WadISay

    I stopped it before she broke into Don’t Stop Thinkin’ ‘Bout Tomorrow.

  • Bruno

    Anyone who usually sees my comments, should know I hate the Hillz. But she’s very charming and fits right in with a bunch of millionaire English-speaking Indonesian Housewive-elites.

  • Hedley Lamar

    Thanks for the picture of Ann Coulter on the left here. Shouldn’t there
    be a NSFW tag or something?

    The interviewer says: Ha ha. Here is gift for you, O great white woman.
    Hillary: Ha ha. What is it?
    Interviewer: Ha ha. Original birth cert from Jakarta of your boss.
    Hillary: Ha ha. Oh shit.

  • Bruno

    To really prove her diplomatic credentials, I would have liked to see her show up in a Batik pantsuit & speak some Bhasa to the Bumaputras.

  • Bruno

    Saya ada kretek?

  • hockeymom

    More cowbell, please.

  • SayItWithWookies

    Wait — where’s Whoopi?

  • sanantonerose

    [re=247470]Mr Blifil[/re]: Sheesh, man. I was being facetious and now you’ve gotten me all philosophic. Hell, now I want to hear them on the banjo.

    And on the side, I will share that I am a fully paper trained player of the Devil’s instrument and am aware of these things. Oh yes, I am indeed.

  • Gorillionaire

    I can’t help it – I totally want to do her.

  • Campbell Brown

    I thought only people running for president had to put up with this bullshit. I thought cabinet heads, once they got done having their financial forms fished out of the trash by a Senate committee, could be serious, grey eminences doing their important government business.

    Instead of just humilating herself at Iowa state fairs, Hillary now has to do it all over the world.

  • King of Pants

    [re=247507]Gorillionaire[/re]: Then we can’t help you.

  • Rebel Countess

    They like her, they really like her. That’s obvious, and a huge advance over Condi’s reception in foreign parts.

    It amazes me that even female (possibly Muslim) airheads in the Third World speak English so well.

    This is their SECOND LANGUAGE, people.

    Can we haz skoolz like they got?

    If so, when?

  • Jukesgrrl

    [re=247485]wheelie[/re]: FTW!

  • Monsieur Grumpe

    I knew I’ve seen that pantsuit somewhere else.

  • nosnikreplliw

    jop jop jop jop! … Hir ra ry Crin ton!

  • Nick vdK

    Hillary Clinton’s smile kind of reminds me of the grimaces of the slaves in that CSA mockumentary.
