CLARK RETREATS FROM POLITICAL
BATTLEFIELD – EGOCENTRIC GENERAL
FAILS IN PRESIDENTIAL BID – CLINTONS
NEED TO FIND A NEW STOOGE – MCC
HELPED BEAT CLARK IN ARIZONA
WES “COVER BOY” OF GAY MAGAZINE
The troubled Presidential campaign of “Gen. Jack D. Ripper,” AKA Gen. Weasely Clark is over. The egocentric “four-star” failed in his bid for the Democratic nomination and has retreated from the political battlefield. He will not be missed.
It was a quest marked by failure from the very start.
The general couldn’t seem to figure out what his “positions” were. To one audience, he said he would’ve voted for war in Iraq. To another, he’d been “against it from the start.” When it came to abortion rights, the general was all over the map. He tried to ingratiate himself with low-income New Hampshire Democrats, claiming he “worked his way through West Point.” Anyone with half a brain knows that when you go to West Point, not only are all expenses paid, (by we the taxpayers), but each cadet receives a monthly stipend as well. Even Clark’s lies were half-baked.
CLARK “COVER-BOY” FOR GAY MAGAZINE
There is nothing the general wouldn’t do to pander for votes.
We don’t know if his good-looking, Hollywood screenwriter son set up the deal, but Clark appeared as a “cover boy” on the national gay magazine, The Advocate. And this was no pose in uniform with his medals. Wes tried to “ape” Marlon Brando, wearing a black jacket, open to a white tee-shirt. Maybe he set a few homosexual hearts aflutter, but his supporters in Oklahoma and the Bible Belt would have blanched to see their candidate in such a venue.
Most of the Clark campaign apparatus came from Clinton loyalists. What will Bill and Hillary do now to (1) set up a scenario where Hillary gets “drafted” at the convention; or (2) makes sure whoever the Democrat nominee is in Boston, he loses in November so the Hildabeast has a clear shot at the top prize in 2008?
At least she doesn’t have to worry about Al Gore. The loser of the 2000 presidential campaign has self-destructed with his “kiss-of-death” endorsement of Gov. Howard Dean of Vermont and his shrill denunciation of President Bush as a "traitor" at a recent Democratic fundraiser. Gore won’t even figure into 2008 thinking. He has become politically irrelevant and a national joke.
Gen. Clark was something of a cartoon character himself. On a recent CNN news program, he maintained he got in the race because “so many people” came to him and urged him to run. Probably a good number were sycophantic Army buddies who had benefited from sucking up to this little Napolean back when Wes almost got us into World War III.
FIRED AS NATO COMMANDER
In our earlier story, (see below), we quoted British Gen. Michael Jackson as rightly refusing Clark’s order to attack Russian troops moving on the Pristina airport in Kosovo. At the time, Clark was Supreme NATO Commander and Jackson leader of all ground forces in the region.
“I won’t start World War III for you, sir,” snorted the tough British commander. When word of Clark’s instability reached Washington, even Secretary of Defense Bill Cohen, managed to have the “moxie” to call Clark home early and “retire” him from the Army. No less than Secretary of State Colin Powell, former Army Chief of Staff, confirmed Clark had been “fired.” So we can all count ourselves lucky that the megalomaniac general has now left the political stage. Hopefully, for good.
MilitaryCorruption.com received national exposure and hundreds of congratulatory e-mails when we “dissected” the general in our “Loose Cannon” story one week before the Arizona Primary.
On the day we posted our investigative piece, the general was actually ahead in the polls here (albeit narrowly) according to KAET-TV and the Arizona State University Poll. One week later, on primary night in Arizona, Clark was drubbed badly, losing by a whopping 16% margin! And this was supposed to be one of his best states, after Oklahoma!
We thank the many veterans groups, active duty military at the three major bases here, the veterans, retirees and their families who circulated our article from Flagstaff to Yuma and turned “thumbs down” on a man clearly unsuitable for being anywhere near the nuclear button.
CLARK REJECTED BY MAJORITY OF VOTERS
In reality, Wes Clark was his own worst enemy. The more the public saw of him, the more they were repelled. Clark burned his bridges with the Republicans, so now he will join Al Gore on the political scrap heap. He was always a “hard sell” to partisan Democrats.
They were suspicious of Clark’s votes for past Republican presidents; his being featured speaker at a GOP fund-raiser as recently as 2001; his public “praise” of President George W. Bush, National Security Advisor Condi Rice and Secretary of State Colin Powell; and Clark’s backing the invasion of Iraq up to the last minute before we went in.
There has been no general elected President of the United States since Dwight D. Eisenhower. And Clark is no Ike. After this aborted race, it looks like we will be spared a “general” in the White House for a long time to come. And that is a good thing.
