Questions for Mark Penn?

posted by on October 10 at 9:04 AM

Top Clinton strategist Mark Penn is in Seattle today, doing some advance-work for Hillary Clinton’s stop at Benaroya Hall on Oct. 22.

I’m not in Seattle today, however. I’m in NY on vacation. But I don’t want to miss the Penn action, so I’ll be joining a conference call in about 45 minutes in which Penn is to brief Washington State reporters on the state of the Clinton campaign. I assume it will be an on-the-record briefing, and I assume he’ll take questions. I’ll let you know what happens. Meanwhile, what would you ask the man who people are calling Clinton’s Karl Rove?

What's the chance she will scream like Dean in Iowa?

What's the chance you'd actually get an honest straight-forward answer to any significant question he was asked?

I want to know the exact # of Twinkies he has had in his life.

Ask him what HRC would do to hold Blackwater accountable for their actions, then watch him squirm.

Blackwater is a client of his.

I want to hear how she plans to fix the train wreck that is the federal budget.

i hope he's clinton's karl rove, because that would mean she's prepared to fucking fight for the win & get down in the mud for a goddamn change.

ask him how can we socialist far-lefty liberal bubble treehuggers help him prevent his DLC center-right DINO client from snatching defeat from the jaws of victory?

ask him at what point in the campaign does his client pander to the liberal democratic base, instead of the pro-war republican base?

If he's really Clinton's Rove, I would ask for his forehead measurements.

Ask him when he will commit to taking his PR firm out of the "union avoidance" (union busting) business. If he weasels on the answer by saying that he personally isn't doing it anymore, ask him how Hillary can justify asking for union support while having someone with union-buster ties in her campaign.

If it's OK to work for Blackwater would it be OK to work for Concerned Women of America?

Personally I'd rather have a candidate associated with the latter. Both bad but Blackwater worse.

I'd like to know what her position is on RTID/ST2 and global warming.

Oh, also: How does Hillary plan to further the radical homosexual agenda, undermine Christianity, and speed up the decline of America's moral values? I think before we can vote for her we really need to know that she can do all that.

Posted by Greg | October 10, 2007 10:32 AM

Why would she need to do that, Greg? She has all those closeted Gay Old Perverts to do it for her ...

Because they're incompetent: they keep imploding in waves, when what we really need is a steady stream of hypocrisy being exposed.

Omg, I love Eli Sanders. He goes to NY on vaca, makes conference calls AND he uses the word 'brief' in a way that does not mean quick or underwear.

Global warming is to Will in Seattle as Islamofascism is to Rush Limbaugh and 9-11 is to Rudy Giuliani.

Posted by no one | October 10, 2007 12:37 PM

Who's this Rudy guy? Is he some failed mayor or some slut who likes to get married a lot and sleep with mistresses he cheats on?
