St. Hillary

Almost leaves me speechless, this does. A sky pilot by the name of Bill Shillady has written a book entitled, Strong for a Moment Like This: The Daily Devotions Of Hillary Rodham Clinton.

That's right, it's "a year’s worth of devotions tailored for Clinton as she campaigned for president". Given the woman's well-known bad temper, viciousness and tendency toward profanity, I rather suspect that Hillary's devotions must have read very much like the curse (actually a Bill of Excommunication) read out loud by Dr. Slop in Tristram Shandy (Chap.2 IV) - only, in her case, directed at Bernie Sanders or Donald Trump.

I would like to see a Venn diagram of the people who actually buy this 'book'.

I'm guessing there would be about two people in the intersection of 'devout Christians' and 'rabid Hilliary supporters'.

Hillary Clinton is a devout Christian, and I am the Queen of Rumania.

From the Shandy link:

"Maledictus sit in totis viribus corporis. in Maledictus sit intus et exterius. in i Maledictus sit in capillis; maledictus nin sit in cerebro. Maledictus sit in vertice, in temporibus, in fronte, in auriculis, in superciliis, in oculis, in genis, in maxillis, in naribus, in dentibus, mordacibus, in labris sive molibus, in labiis, in guttere, in humeris, in harnis, in brachiis..."

Eye of newt and toe of frog, at midnight.
Also Paradise Lost, to serve in Heaven or reign in Hell? Decisions decisions...
