Meanwhile, What Is Hillary Clinton Doing These Days?

by Jim Newell

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.

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.

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

[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 February 19, 2009 at 3:48 pm

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 February 19, 2009 at 3:50 pm

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

TexasSecessionist February 19, 2009 at 3:50 pm

Bitchin’ pantsuit.

WadISay February 19, 2009 at 3:51 pm

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

Bruno February 19, 2009 at 3:54 pm

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 February 19, 2009 at 3:55 pm

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 February 19, 2009 at 3:58 pm

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 February 19, 2009 at 3:59 pm

Saya ada kretek?

hockeymom February 19, 2009 at 4:00 pm

More cowbell, please.

SayItWithWookies February 19, 2009 at 4:00 pm

Wait — where’s Whoopi?

sanantonerose February 19, 2009 at 4:03 pm

[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 February 19, 2009 at 4:06 pm

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

Campbell Brown February 19, 2009 at 4:07 pm

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 February 19, 2009 at 4:16 pm

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

Rebel Countess February 19, 2009 at 4:51 pm

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 February 19, 2009 at 8:53 pm

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

Monsieur Grumpe February 19, 2009 at 9:43 pm

I knew I’ve seen that pantsuit somewhere else.

nosnikreplliw February 20, 2009 at 12:02 am

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

Nick vdK February 20, 2009 at 2:56 pm

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