[Editor's note: We are extremely honored to have Secretary of State Clinton here at our humble blog. Take it away, Madam Secretary!]
I’m right here, pinheads!
By the Honorable Hillary Clinton, United States Secretary of State
My fellow Americans, I’ve been extremely busy lately, working hard to move this administration’s agenda forward all over the world. About a week and a half ago, I met with Israeli Foreign Minister Lieberman about freezing settlement expansions, which are often a roadblock to peace in that troubled part of the world.
To emphasize our focus on a two-state solution and promote economic development in the region, I also spoke with Prime Minister and Minister of Finance of the Palestinian Authority Salam Fayyad last week.
And today I’m meeting with the rightful President of Honduras. My goal is to underscore this administration’s support for that nation’s duly elected leader, who was recently ousted in an unlawful military coup.
I was scheduled to visit Italy and Greece late last month to attend meetings with Group of Eight counterparts on Iran, the Middle East peace process and the Afghanistan War and to participate in a meeting with the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe about tensions between Russia and Georgia. However, I had to cancel that trip because I’m recovering from surgery on my elbow.
In light of all these activities and the success this administration has had in defusing tension throughout the world in the wake of George W. Bush’s disastrous presidency – success I was instrumental in achieving – you’d think I’d get some credit and recognition, if not from my political enemies, at least from those who say they support me, right? Wrong.
According to this nitwit and her “sources” at Michelle Malkin’s Hot Air blog, I’m not one of the most powerful women on earth and a tireless advocate for peace and prosperity around the globe. According to her, I am a helpless victim of dastardly men, locked away in a tower like Rapunzel.
Talk about insulting and demeaning. Yeah, those folks at The New Agenda have “got my back” alright – I can feel their shivs. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have a meeting with President Zelaya to attend. Someone tell Barack it's time to remove the shackles.
