Let’s say you had some financial conference where George W. Bush was planned to be your keynote speaker. Now, for whatever reasons, let’s say Georgie couldn’t make it. Who would you get to replace him? Perhaps Dick Cheney? Too frightening. Maybe John McCain. But he’d just waste everybody’s time talking about how he wants to butcher every man, woman, and child in the Middle East. There’s always Mitt Romney. Then again you never know what he’s going to say with how often he changes his mind on things. I guess that leaves one well-known politician who exhibits everything that is the Republican Party; Hillary Clinton:
Former President George W. Bush was supposed to give a speech to Ameriprise Financial conference in Boston next week but had to bow out because he’s recovering from surgery on a bum knee. But the financial services firm was able to secure a prominent substitute speaker: Hillary Clinton.
Clinton’s speech, confirmed by two sources familiar with the event, is the latest in a series of paid speaking-circuit gigs for the former secretary of state and likely 2016 presidential contender, who charges upward of $200,000 to deliver remarks or take part in question-and-answer sessions.
$200,000 dollars? And she is bitching about being broke? Talk about fiscal irresponsibility, which is yet another reason she’s the perfect Republican.
But, seriously, if anybody wants a keynote speaker to talk about bombing people in the Middle East and terrorizing people at home I’d be willing to do so for much less than $200,000. I might even be willing to do it so for the price of my expenses alone if I could record it and post it on YouTube later. I’d even dress up as a fascist for full effect.
