So, I get this email invitation to a party for Hillary…now referred to as ‘She Whose Name Shall Not be Spoken.” SWNSNBS for short. It goes like this…

SENATOR HILLARY RODHAM CLINTON IN MIAMI TO CHAT WITH YOU!
THIS PARTY HAS BEEN WIDELY PUBLICIZED AND TALKED ABOUT. TICKETS ONLY COST US$50 AND WILL SUPPORT SENATOR CLINTON’S RE-ELECTION CAMPAIGN IN NEW YORK. THIS IS YOUR OPPORTUNITY TO MEET TONS OF INTERESTING PROFESSIONALS SUCH AS YOURSELF AND TO TALK TO SENATOR CLINTON WHO WILL BE SOCIALIZING AND MIXING WITH THE CROWD.

And it had this cute invitation attached….
Well I suppose I could have gone and even paid extra to let SWNSNBS know what I think of her crusade….but it would take time and money to do that, and I have neither to waste on such foolishness. But I did take the time to respond to the nice person who sent me the unsolocited invitation as follows:
Unfortunately, although I am a life long Democrat and had intended on supporting Mrs. Clinton, I can no longer do so due to her pending video game legislation that singles out interactive multimedia entertainment software for criminalization, while ignoring similar content in film, music, books and television.
This legislation reflects the lowest sort of pandering to the most ignorant among us by targeting the newest entertainment medium,Video Games. I find this all the more disturbing due to the significant first amendment issues involved. This is especially disheartening when offered by someone who I believed to be a competent attorney who should know better. This disgraceful, self serving purely political act has so denigrated my perception of Mrs. Clinton that, not only am I no longer supporting her, I am actively opposing her political aspirations at ALL levels.
So, thank you for the invitation, but I’ll be busy that night…playing games on my computer!
