I talked to Robin Williams once, about breasts.
In 1993, when he played a prim British nanny in “Mrs. Doubtfire,” I went to interview him at his Pacific Heights house.
“It’s great to be this blue-mouthed old lady hitting on somebody,” he said, in his character’s soft Scottish burr, “opening your blouse and saying, ‘What about these? Behold my dirty pillows, my fun bags. Come nurse at the fountain of bliss.’ ”
He was 42 then, wearing his Popeye outfit, a blue-striped T-shirt and black baggy jeans. Surrounded by kids, a rabbit and an iguana, we talked about everything from John Belushi to his father, a stern Ford Motor Company executive.
As our interview ended, I was telling him about my friend Michael Kelly’s idea for a 1-900 number, not one to call Asian beauties or Swedish babes, but where you’d have an amorous chat with a repressed Irish woman. Williams delightedly riffed on the caricature, playing the role of an older Irish woman answering the sex line in a brusque brogue, ordering a horny caller to go to the devil with his impure thoughts and disgusting desire.
I couldn’t wait to play the tape for Kelly, who doubled over in laughter.
So when I think of Williams, I think of Kelly. And when I think of Kelly, I think of Hillary, because Michael was the first American reporter to die in the Iraq invasion, and Hillary Clinton was one of the 29 Democratic senators who voted to authorize that baloney war.
There’s a bunch more, but it don’t get no better. She used an anecdote about Robin Williams to launch a totally unrelated screed about Hillary Clinton.
Seriously, there are worms crawling around in her brain. Modo’s been crazier than a shithouse rat for years. What bothers me is that she gets PAID to write that stuff.
The main reason I posted this lunatic drivel is to point out that anyone who thinks that Hillary Clinton is gonna cruise to the Democratic
nomination coronation is delusional too.
The activist base of the Democratic party (which includes the media and most lefty bloggers) despises Bill and Hillary Clinton. If she is nominated they may hold their noses and vote for her (because The Republicans Are Worse™) but they will do everything they can to keep her from winning the nomination.
Clinton Derangement Syndrome was always a key component in Obama’s 2008 primary campaign. Obots hated her then and they still hate her now.
I’m not saying Hillary can’t win, but it won’t be a cakewalk, especially if she is forced to keep carrying Obama’s baggage.
Either way, Maureen Dowd is still nuttier than a Payday bar.
