“Hill-Billy’s Money Boo-Boo”

By | June 11, 2014

[June 11, 2014] It’s just plain hard to make this stuff up. So read the headlines spread across pages 4 and 5 of the New York Post, today’s printed edition. The print-edition subheading and the Post’s website has another line that reads, “Shucks, we wuz so broke, wernt no way to fix it [sic]”. There is a lesson here for political leaders; don’t get on the wrong side of the Post; a newspaper that buys ink in 55-gallon drums.

Post-400One thing that New Yorkers don’t like is someone who exaggerates their plight … and that is exactly what they think one of our Presidential contenders did this week.1 It doesn’t matter where you are from or what position you have, the Post’s reporters will tell you what they think and make fun of you at the same time.

I find this a bit refreshing for a newspaper. Usually newspapers lately have simply fallen in step with our political leaders and have been known to lead the charge to excuse illegal, unethical, or immoral activities. The New York Post is to be commended for calling the shots as they saw it.

The Post’s photo-composite that takes up the majority of the page is hilarious. Maybe later it will be on the Internet.

We had no money when we got there and we struggled to, you know, piece together the resources for mortgages for houses, for Chelsea’s education, you know, it was not easy.” So says Hillary Clinton to Diane Sawyer
