26. She is the poster girl for the GOP
She is the perfect disguise. She is a powerful icon. How does one address a walking, talking, living, breathing lie? In substance her persona is completely impotent, delivering the PR message designed by her corporatist puppet masters. She is an animated programed Potemkin village for a party that promotes a foreign policy based upon brutal force, inequity, racism, and class warfare.
