Getting Out the Drunk, Gay Vote

Here’s Chelsea Clinton at the GLBT Gayboorhood Pub Crawl in Philadelphia, supporting Hillary’s run for President.

It’s awesome that they sent Chelsea out to support this event. It’s cool to see the daughter of a Presidential candidate sporting an LGBT sticker at a campaign event, and it indicates that we’ve come a long way in terms of public support for gay rights.

Still, it would have been even cooler to have Hillary there wearing that sticker. We have plenty of room to grow, I suppose.

Look Who’s Still Funny

Hillary continues to promote her new campaign platform — “Hillary Clinton: Not Actually An Evil Robot” — with an appearance on the Tonight Show where she makes yet another funny.

“I was worried I wasn’t going to make it — I was pinned down by sniper fire at the Burbank airport,” she says about 30 seconds in.

I actually think Hillary Clinton probably does have a great sense of humor. But comedic timing and delivery isn’t really her forte. It’s cute that she’s trying, though. I think it actually accomplishes the goal she has in mind — to humanize Hillary Clinton in the minds of the American voters — but not in the way she intended. Instead of being like, “Oh my gosh, Hillary Clinton is so funny, I had no idea,” I’m like, “Oh my gosh, Hillary Clinton is bad at something. How cute is that!” It’s like in My Best Friend’s Wedding when Cameron Diaz gets up to sing and she’s just so damn horrible but the whole thing actually makes you like her more? Hillary Clinton’s jokes are like Cameron Diaz’s bad singing.
