"Hillary And An Untouchable Walk Into A Bar..."
While speaking at a Dem fundraiser in St. Louis last Saturday, Hillary Clinton made a harmless, off-the-cuff quip about civil disobedience legend Mohandas K. Gandhi.
And the curry hit the fan.
Fox News reports:
During an event ... for Senate candidate Nancy Farmer, Clinton introduced a quote from Gandhi by saying, "He ran a gas station down in St. Louis."
After laughter from many in the crowd of at least 200 subsided, the former first lady continued, "No, Mahatma Gandhi was a great leader of the 20th century."
The victim culture that Hillary and her load of a husband eagerly stoked for eight years was quick to respond. Fox reports:
Michelle Naef, administrator of the M.K. Gandhi Institute for Nonviolence, a Memphis, Tenn.-based organization founded in 1991 by a Gandhi grandson, credited Clinton and her husband, former President Clinton, with long having "supported the Gandhi message." But she said Saturday's remarks "could be incredibly harmful."
Now that Naef has labeled a 9-word quip as "incredibly harmful," what words would she use to describe the assassination of Mahatma Gandhi, Pakistani-sponsored terrorist attacks on India, or the 9-11 attacks? Perhaps "super incredibly harmful"?
Senator Clinton later said she was sorry for making the "lame" joke. That's unfortunate.
MEMO TO HILLARY: Rather than apologizing, you should punch-up and refine the comedy bit. Try it this way: "Remember Gandhi? He ran a 7-11 down the street. [rimshot]. But seriously, I love Gandhi. Hell, if it weren't for the G-Man, we wouldn't have adult diapers! [rimshot]"
And don't worry about losing the Indian vote; you can shore it up by choosing the right running mate in 2008.
