Reflections on the Schizophrenic unDNC Convention: Scratchy McScreachalot and her Balloons

by Scott Creighton

BALLOOOOOOONS!

Watching Hillary Clinton (I call her “Scratchy McScreachalot”) give her acceptance speech last night I couldn’t help but think of just how completely crazy this woman has become. Compare her old speeches in the senate when she was parroting the neocon lies about Iraq and Saddam in order to get Dems to vote for a war of aggression to this one. They just aren’t the same people. I don’t know where this thing came from but it probably started to rear it’s troubling head when it cackled “We came, We Saw, He Died! hee hee hee”

Lat night Scratchy McScreachalot’s speech was riddled with numbers of sudden, unexplained emotional disconnections between her facial expressions and the words coming out of her mouth. At one moment she would be talking about something serious with eyes peeled back, wide open and a scowl on her face and then suddenly, POW, like someone grabbed a handful of flesh from the back of her head and pulled her face back, she contorted into this menacing smile like a Chucky doll on meth. Or that character from We Happy Few.

smile

I know what it was. Her campaign manager whispering something in her earpiece trying to soften her up (“Hillary? Smile baby, come on.”).POW! So she does.

Either that or she’s taking her “Joy”

When she starts down the road in a speech about foreign policy or pretty much anything else, Scratchy McScreachalot can go nuclear fast and that doesn’t serve her new branding of Grandma President at all. They need to make her appeal to older women voters who are married with kids because historically (at least recently) they vote republican.

(Pay attention because watching the Scoop Jackson Dems appeal to republican voters (and neocons) is going to be a major theme in the next article.)

Every politician does this. They all have input coming in at real time while they give their speeches which were written by someone else (which is why the criticism of Trump’s wife’s speech was totally ridiculous. They all take credit for someone else’s writing). They’re not just puppets because they are wholly owned subsidiaries of major corporations and financial houses, they are quite literally puppets with someone’s hand stuck up their earpiece mouthing the words and faking the emotional context live on stage.

The problem with Scratchy McScreachalot is that she appears completely incapable of improvising anything that even closely resembles real human connection with the environment that surrounds her.

She doesn’t have any self-editing skills. When she was pleased that she had done the master’s bidding and rid the world of a beloved socialist leader in Africa who had been a thorn in their side, she couldn’t understand she was sitting in front of a live camera as she giggled and hopped in her chair like a 5-year-old you just told you are taking to the zoo.

Last night’s speech was full of misplaced inflections, mechanical cadence delivery and sudden, unexplained outbursts of emotional transitions that just popped up out of the blue with no rhyme or reason.

It’s like something trying to be human, repeating and regurgitating mimicked affections of humanity without really understanding what they mean or where they belong. Do you understand?

Like a developing toddler trying to figure out which facial emojis it can use to illicit various responses from it’s parents, Scratchy McScreachalot seems to be regressing back to that early development stage and when you compare the long history of public speeches this woman delivered over the decades she’s been in public office to this one, you have to wonder what is causing this OBVIOUS deterioration.

Now, I’m not a psychiatrist but something tells me disjointed communication skills like these are a clue to something.

But then, at the end, it got even worse.

They did the balloon drop at the end of her speech. They let her walk around on stage by herself for what seemed like an eternity where she kept doing the same thing whenever she saw someone in the audience she knew. She was acting like she was surprised to see them there. It’s her nomination convention. Did she not expect to see friends in the audience?

Anyway, when the balloons finally came down, that face-pulled-back smile slammed onto her mug like it was shot on by one of those tee-shirt guns and she looked up and started patting at the falling balloons.

Okay. That’s fine. She acknowledged the damn balloons. That’s okay. People do that.

But then she didn’t stop. She didn’t fucking stop.

And that puppeteer smile stretched back on her face went on and on as she stared at the falling piece of brightly colored rubber like a puppy would in a room full of balloons.

Like a child would.

Look at the expression on the face of Tim Kaine’s wife.

Tim Kaine’s wife is looking like she’s thinking what I was thinking, what many folks out here were thinking…. “What the fuck is wrong with this woman?”

Later, after more people join them onstage, it’s STILL the fucking balloons.

BALLOONS! YOU SEE THE BALLOONS?!

BALLOOOOOOOOOOOONS!!!!!

Seems like someone entering their second childhood is about to have their finger on the nuclear trigger, doesn’t it? That’s reassuring.

I’ve been observing for some time now that Scratchy McScreachalot seems to be a little unbalanced. Last night, in spite of the training wheels they appear to have stapled to her ankles, she teetered way off balance and went right off the rails.

Bright shiny objects tend to do that to toddlers… and puppies.

I can only hope that decades from now history teachers in their post-nuclear wasteland schools don’t have to instruct their students to write 500-word essays on “What Signs Did America Miss About President McScreachalot in 2016?”. Poor kids won’t have the internet for their cut and paste research after the EMPed world shuts it down for good. They’ll have to turn in their assignments on pulp paper made at the old water-wheel mill down by the crick. Poor kids.

WON’T SOMEONE THINK OF THE CHILDREN!?!

But Hillary has her balloons and that’s just fine. The world is just fine.

I wonder if they will install some in the Oval Office for when she’s having a particularly bad day with her finger resting on the button. Might be a good idea. Just a suggestion.

  1. Yep, not quite the banality of evil or even the inanity of evil, but more the outright absurdity of evil. So is this how the world actually ends… with a bang and a stupid smirking whimper? Anyway, thanks for cheering me up with a few belly laughs.

    • there is a video game I want to play called We Happy Few. have you heard of it? All this reminds me of it so much.

      As I have said before, if you want real art with living breathing social commentary, you have to go to the gaming medium.

  2. I wonder if they will install some in the Oval Office for when she’s having a particularly bad day with her finger resting on the button.

    I wouldn’t be surprised actually. Since she always has her corporate backers to report to, her inevitable election may still be better than Trump, who might try to unload on anyone who happens to annoy him on any particular day.

  3. Thanks for the commentary. I can’t bear to watch that crap anymore. I’ve decided to treat the rest of the s’election’ as the worthless distraction that it is. Killary and Drumph are cartoon characters!😛

  4. Speaking of odd behavior … here’s a bunch of video clips featuring Killary, Obama, and Tony Abbott flipping out: http://www.winterpatriot.com/node/984

  5. I’ve seen not only more of Hillary this campaign than I ever have, I’ve seen more of her than I ever care to.

    Based on Robert Hare’s 20 markers of psychopathy…

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Psychopathy_Checklist

    …I have always considered her a psychopath like her husband. I thought it was pretty obvious to anyone who has studied the phenomenon. Except for one thing. Every psychopath I have known or read about is pretty much characterized first and foremost by one salient point: charm. Hillary doesn’t seem to have any.

    It is said David Son-of-Sam Berkowitz is still charming his guards who even sneak him little gratuities because they think he is “such a nice guy.” I have argued that I disqualify Dick Cheney from my long list of potential psychopaths in office (PIO) because he makes absolutely no attempt to charm anyone, friends, reporters, colleagues, or even the public. He may just be the regular old run-of-the-mill greedy psychotic bastard, but not a true psychopath.

    People get very upset with me when I assert that a far more likely candidate for PIO is Barack Obama. He rates very high on the Hare scale. And highest because he can charm the most recalcitrant critic. Republicans seem immune however. Their racism seems to insulate them because they are just too used to judging people by the color of their skin to have any contact with reality–real or simulated. Folks hate it when I say Obama is a psychopath because they cannot stop believing how charming he is. I tell them, “I rest my case!”

    Now I have to belatedly add that, apart from a psych major, I have no formal training in recognizing psychopaths. I have been victimized by one, if that counts for anything. It is also legendary that the easiest people for psychopaths to fool are members of the psychiatric brotherhood.

    Meanwhile back to Hillary. Her psychopathy puzzles me because she comes across as so un-charming, so forced, so inauthentic that she fails the one of the most important markers of psychopathy–charm. In most other markers she scores in the high percentiles: lack of empathy, poor impulse control, narcissism, profound sense of victim-hood, blaming others, etc. But not charm. I have finally had to regard her as an anomaly, a failed psychopath. Psychopaths are always keenly aware of their impact on others. It’s what enables them to be such master manipulators. Seeing what a failure she is in the charm department must really just eat her up.

    • I have argued that I disqualify Dick Cheney from my long list of potential psychopaths in office (PIO) because he makes absolutely no attempt to charm anyone, friends, reporters, colleagues, or even the public.

      Ha. This is funny – and you’re right – Dick Cheney is not really a psychopath. He’s worse – he’s totally sane – he’s just a complete asshole of unimaginable proportion.

  6. Given that our system (and even culture in many ways) is based on driving the public into an infantile state of fear and need, perhaps it’s not so surprising we have a candidate openly reflecting these traits now they’be become so widespread. Or perhaps the puppetmasters needing an infantile populace also see a need for an infantile politician class now.

    • I think she’s either on medication or suffering from something akin to what Reagan had in his last years. I would say it’s an act to get Trump elected, but no one’s that good of an actor. She is seriously unbalanced.

      • I think Trump is an act to get her elected, because the corporate world wants someone who will cater to them (Trump is out for Trump only – he’s a loose canon). She may be crazy, but it seems she the targeted appointee to the throne.

  8. This is pretty scary http://m.imgur.com/gallery/wFovN4O

  9. Maybe she’s seeing pokemen?

  10. Balloons and human air-heads, soooo nice…

  11. I always thought Hillary and her supporters were “Looners”,finally it’s confirmed. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Balloon_fetish http://www.looners-united.com/en/why-balloon-fetish/ ( mild adult content)

  12. It looks like she’s suffering from Age Regression. I’m surprised they didn’t give her a bubble-blowing toy so she could “Ooooh, Ahhhh” even moreso.

  13. Better still this tweet by David Duke… Now THIS photo must be why Hitlery was in “childlike awe” of the balloons…

  14. Pathetic photos of an old woman avid for power.
