what does not destroy me makes me strong

By Diogenes (articles ) | Feb 24, 2008

The New York Times gives us a harrowing retrospective of the mean streets of Park Ridge, Illinois.

"Hillary is incredibly tough -- she grew up with two brothers and a strong father in the Midwest, so she knows a challenge," said Ms. Solis Doyle, the former campaign manager, who has worked for her on and off since 1991 until she was replaced this month.

Brutal.

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:

    It's a miracle she survived.

    AH...that explains her femanism. Also, great qualifications to be Commander in Chief and the mere thought of her Park Ridge background will undoubtedly make her potential adversaries in Iran and elsewhere tremble. OK, I'm convinced....except for her views on abortion, same sex marriage and a host of other issues about which her views may have been influenced by her difficult time growing up with two brothers and a strong father. Obama (equally bad) might want to take advantage of this!
