Great work! Just seeing Hillary is enough to make the blood run cold.

Vanceone on December 21, 2007 at 2:46 PM

I’m not a lawyer and I don’t play one on TV but I think it could be a problem including the Hillary imprimatur on this SATIRICAL piece.

thegreatbeast on December 21, 2007 at 2:52 PM

interesting. People complain about the left’s criticism of Bush being tainted by their virulent hatred for him, it clearly would be 10x worse from the right if Hillary becomes pres.

crr6 on December 21, 2007 at 2:53 PM

Cackle cackle

df4jc on December 21, 2007 at 2:53 PM

crr6, defensiveness is indignant, after all your BDS…

“Where did I put those records?…they’ll never know…ha, ha, ha”

Entelechy on December 21, 2007 at 3:00 PM

Nice job. Just like those guys say in the beer commercials…Brilliant!!!

That cackle scares the heck out of me. All you have to do as a Republican presidential candidate is run that sound bite of Hillary’s laugh until election day and you may have the greatest landslide since Reagan v. Mondale. Really, no other platform but “do you want a President who cackles like this running the country?”. It would be “game over” for her.

Planet Boulder on December 21, 2007 at 3:03 PM

Great job! Michelle’s voiceover was a little too good.

Valiant on December 21, 2007 at 3:06 PM

Cackle are make head asplodey!

BKennedy on December 21, 2007 at 3:07 PM

The cackle at the beginning was great!

Ian on December 21, 2007 at 3:09 PM

Assume.

Bill C on December 21, 2007 at 3:09 PM

D’oh, I meant awesome.

Bill C on December 21, 2007 at 3:10 PM

Heh. That’s funny. I’d have used more cackling, though–cackling is the cowbell of mocking Hillary.

Or you could just do a “Great Moments in Cackling” montage, and cut back and forth between Hillary and Margaret Hamilton
as the (other) Wicked Witch. Sort of a cackle-off, I guess. The difference being that Margaret Hamilton was a warm kind-hearted person in real life.

ReubenJCogburn on December 21, 2007 at 3:12 PM

People complain about the left’s criticism of Bush being tainted by their virulent hatred for him, it clearly would be 10x worse from the right if Hillary becomes pres.

I hope you are not right. I think a lot of people in the right (like myself) have policy disagreements with her.
It’s nothing personal. I’ll say it right here: I do not
hate Sen. Clinton by no means. I respect our government and respect the people who have been elected
to political offices, like being in the Senate. However, do
I think she would be the best candidate for president in 2008? No. I think it every bit my right to let others
no exactly where I disagree with candidates.

terryannonline on December 21, 2007 at 3:12 PM

Michelle’s angelic voice is easily distinguishable from the Wicked Witch of the South/North/East/West/4th dimension.

MadisonConservative on December 21, 2007 at 3:13 PM

MM forgot to insert a gift in for Sandy Berger like $50,000 baked inside fruit cake. We’ll never know the impact those docs may have had on Hillary’s campaign.

WASHINGTON (CNN) — Former National Security Adviser Sandy Berger was sentenced Thursday to community service and probation and fined $50,000 for illegally removing highly classified documents from the National Archives and intentionally destroying some of them.

Planet Boulder on December 21, 2007 at 3:16 PM

My cat ran and hid at the sound of that cackle.

Laura on December 21, 2007 at 3:16 PM

Is the “Approved and Payed For” page included in the satirical piece going to pose an issue?

amerpundit on December 21, 2007 at 3:17 PM

amerpundit on December 21, 2007 at 3:17 PM

I was thinking the same thing.

terryannonline on December 21, 2007 at 3:20 PM

That is the fakest laugh I have ever heard.

benrand on December 21, 2007 at 3:22 PM

A new cat for Kathleen Willey? I thought that she was given Socks after the Clintons left the White House. But then, I’ve also read that Socks is currently with Betty Currie (along with Monica’s visitation schedule).

But I must say, those were perfect sound effects on the cat and cattle.

I think it could be a problem including the Hillary imprimatur on this SATIRICAL piece.

May I instead suggest, “We’re the friendly crew from HotAir, and we approved this satire.”

Bigfoot on December 21, 2007 at 3:22 PM

It’s Snidely Whiplash in drag!

Kini on December 21, 2007 at 3:25 PM

Should have been a deep mans voice doing the voiceover, but otherwise good job.

muyoso on December 21, 2007 at 3:55 PM

It’ a new version now, without the slate and boilerplate voice tag that some of you are fixating on.

Bryan on December 21, 2007 at 3:56 PM

Or you could end with “I’m Hillary Clinton an ah ha ha ha ha ha ha…!!”

Tuning Spork on December 21, 2007 at 3:57 PM

I love my prezints from Hot Air, and I’m not giving one frame back! Joy to the World!

RushBaby on December 21, 2007 at 3:59 PM

subbottomfeeder on December 21, 2007 at 4:16 PM

WE R IN UR CAMPANE VIDEOZ, MOCKIN UR CACKLEZ

ReubenJCogburn on December 21, 2007 at 4:18 PM

Or you could end with “I’m Hillary Clinton an ah ha ha ha ha ha ha…!!”

Tuning Spork on December 21, 2007 at 3:57 PM

You know that wouldn’t be hard to do at all for future spoofs. Just use where she says “I’m Hillary Clinton and I approve of this message.” But end it with “I’m Hillary Clinton” and then the cackle! It would be perfect!

Rightwingsparkle on December 21, 2007 at 4:21 PM

The real ad is so disturbing I’d have thought it was the piece of satire.

Blacklake on December 21, 2007 at 4:34 PM

Sounds more like DR. EVIL…Mwahahahahah…Mwahahahahahaaaa

AmericanDad on December 21, 2007 at 5:01 PM

Merry Christmas Hillary.

Griz on December 21, 2007 at 5:11 PM

Cankle Cackle

Wade on December 21, 2007 at 5:14 PM

Another one of those expensive Madison Ave attack ads from the deep pockets of the VRWC. Why won’t they disclose who their Secret Corporate Backers are?

eeyore on December 21, 2007 at 5:31 PM

eeyore on December 21, 2007 at 5:31 PM

good memory

Tuning Spork on December 21, 2007 at 3:57 PM

LOL!
All you guys are too much!

inviolet on December 21, 2007 at 5:38 PM

How much is this ad being run? I have to think that Team Hil is having some negative second thoughts about it.

petefrt on December 21, 2007 at 6:23 PM

Try a different version.

The Zoo Keeper on December 21, 2007 at 6:33 PM

Try a different version.

The Zoo Keeper on December 21, 2007 at 6:33 PM

Also excellent, complete with slate we can all approve of.

Ours is better though!

RushBaby on December 21, 2007 at 6:54 PM

Heh, pretty good guys.

conservnut on December 21, 2007 at 7:11 PM

They need more cackle.

Bryan on December 21, 2007 at 7:13 PM

“They” is “me/us”. – I was going to send this in to Bryan, only to find
that he had beat me to the punch, so I sent it to Funny or Die. The video
was just begging to be spoofed.

The Zoo Keeper on December 21, 2007 at 7:39 PM

Very nice job guys. Well done. It was only 100k though right?

Griz on December 21, 2007 at 8:33 PM

In the year 2017, we’ll be debating whether the gov’t should provide a car for everyone.

jgapinoy on December 21, 2007 at 8:42 PM

I nominate The Zoo Keeper for guest spoofer of 2008.

RushBaby on December 21, 2007 at 8:55 PM

“MY NAME IS NOT FRANKENSTEEN, IT IS FRANK-UN-SCHTINE! Moowah ha ha ha!!! (Thunder crashes, end scene).

srhoades on December 21, 2007 at 11:29 PM

Be afraid…. be very afraid.

imshocked on December 21, 2007 at 11:45 PM

Putting the massive bills on her “gifts” would also be good. Aren’t friggen’ liberals always the most giving generous people? With other peoples money! Notice there wasn’t a single “gift” in her ad that she paid for?

roninacreage on December 22, 2007 at 9:55 AM

After watching Fred!’s Christmas message for the Troops, the Shillary ad looks pretty cold and shallow. Good send up by the Hot Air crew of Her Thighness. I immediately laughed at the cackle at the beginning.

Mallard T. Drake on December 22, 2007 at 2:46 PM

The horrible thing about a cackle is the signature count. A three ‘ha’ cackle is typical. A five ‘ha’ cackle is not unknown but this is 9 point cackle.

You know you have to suck in at least ten ha’s before it’s over.

Imagine getting on the wrong side of this lady. You hear the door open, you hear the cackle and then the footsteps…..

entagor on December 23, 2007 at 3:27 AM

entagor on December 23, 2007 at 3:27 AM

Thanks for the nightmares.

I don’t think I could hear anything beyond the cackle. I imagine it would be echoing forever down the walls……………………..SNIP!

91Veteran on December 23, 2007 at 3:47 AM

Just cut my wrists right now someone….

johnnyU on December 24, 2007 at 1:55 PM

Seriously!
