MILLINOCKET, Maine, April 19, 2015 — Hillary Clinton’s vehicle for her “spontaneous” four-day road trip is a little creepy. It could be a black ops van, it has a custom extended roof that looks like an upside down jon-boat and it’s called “Scooby.”
It just exudes warmth, trust and good will.
Why doesn’t she at least have her campaign logo on it? Never mind that the logo looks like a directional sign to the hospital; most campaign vehicles have logos, slogans and photos of the candidate all over them.
Riding in her plain black van, along with her neon wardrobe, Hillary’s first trip included a stop in Ohio at Chipotle, where she and her aide and vice chairwoman of the campaign, Huma Abedin, bought lunch. The manager later said neither woman dropped money in the tip jar.
Then she journeyed on to Iowa, where several well-scripted appearances were made to try to convince the public that she wants to be “their champion.”
Coffee shops, community colleges and handicapped parking spots were all hosts to Hillary’s road show.
But whenever an authentic group gathered to interact with the candidate, Scooby just zipped right past them to the next staged event.
Hillary might want to work on that “woman of the people” routine – her first attempt was a bit flat.
“A kind of glamour
You can lend yourself
Like dark sunglasses
And you’ll remember
How good it tasted
The ruling classes wasted
Behind your dark sunglasses”
