Last Friday, Hillary Clinton campaigned for Barack Obama for the first time in the symbolically chosen city of Unity, New Hampshire. It wasn’t just that they split the vote down the middle there during the primary season, but the name suggested that they were now unified in the Democratic Party’s pursuit of the White House. Well, on Monday, it was appropriate that Barack was in Independence, Missouri, symbolically saying that he’s independent from that crazy self-serving woman that sought to destroy his campaign for the past several months. What wasn’t publicized were the other symbolic stops on the tour that were proposed in between the stops in Unity and Independence:
Barack and Hillary would campaign together in Unity, New Hampshire, showing their unified front. Bill Clinton could even help out, showing his support.
Bill said they should go to Hope, Arkansas, a place he still believes in. This sounds great since Bill’s 1992 campaign and Barack’s current campaign are both based on hope.
But then Hillary suggested they go down to Looneyville, Texas where it sounds like Barack got a lot of support
Barack was thrown by this. He thought they were going to Friendship, Texas.
Hillary thought if they don’t go to Looneyville with all the Barack supporters, maybe they could go to Novelty, Missouri where the town really captured the essence of his campaign.
In response, Hillary suggested going to Needmore, Texas since Barack needs more experience.
Bill chimed in and said that he helped alleviate concerns he had about inexperience in 1992 by going to Horneytown, North Carolina and then making his way to Hookersville, West Virginia. After going to Hookersville they could visit Spread Eagle, Wisconsin or possibly French Lick, Indiana and even though it’s a little pricier, Intercourse, Pennsylvania.
Michelle reminded everyone that Frommer’s suggests you should go to Protection, Kansas before visiting Intercourse. Everyone was on board. . .
Except Hillary. She was not amused. Maybe it’s because she spent so much time in Gayville, South Dakota.
Hillary told Michelle, Barack, and Bill that they can go to Hell – Hell, Michigan, in what could be a battleground state.
Barack said they’ll go there right after Hillary goes to Quitman, Georgia. Hillary claimed she was never going to Quitman.
So, finally, they decided that Barack should go to Independence, Missouri. Hillary would go her separate way. .
But Bill Clinton was still going to Hookersville.
