CRANKY CLINTON PREPARED FOR HER WISCONSIN BLOOD BATH TODAY BY . . . WELL, BATHING IN BLOOD.
EXPLAINED CRANKY, "I NEED THE BLOOD OF VIRGINS AND NEWBORNS. CLEARLY, WITH MY HUSBAND, I HAVE TO BE VERY WARY OF ALLOWING THE VIRGINS MUCH MOVEMENT OF MOTION. BUT THIS IS WHAT I DO. WE ALL HAVE OUR SUPERSTITIONS AND MINE IS THAT WITHOUT THE BLOOD FROM FRESH KILLS, I WILL NOT WIN. SO THAT'S WHAT I DO. THAT'S HOW I PREP. I'M SURE IT SEEMS BORING. BUT I'M JUST A REGULAR PERSON."
"PEOPLE OFTEN MISS THAT," CRANKY INSISTED AS SHE RUBBED THE BLOOD OF THE DEAD ON HER FACE.
Haider al-Abadi is the current prime minister of Iraq. He was installed by US President Barack Obama in August of 2014.
He hasn't been very successful.
He was supposed to come up with a political solution to address the country's various crises but he's been unable or unwilling to do that and Sunnis continue to feel persecuted because . . . they are being persecuted.
This persecution began under the previous prime minister Nouri al-Maliki. It led to the rise of the Islamic State in Iraq. It continues to fuel the Islamic State in Iraq.
But Haider ignores that and so much more.
Mainly, he ignores the Constitution.
He took it upon himself, for example, to declare that Iraq had no vice presidents -- supposedly ousting three people out of their jobs.
But they still haven't been removed. And it was really against the Constitution to go about it the way Haider did.
Ayad Allawi, Osama al-Nujafi and Nouri al-Maliki are the three vice presidents.
Currently, Haider's attempting to circumvent the Constitution again.
This time he wants to dispose of the Cabinet of Ministers and replace them with a new set of nominees.
That notions has already run into hiccups -- see Saturday's snapshot.
Another hiccup's emerged today.
Parliament's declaring that they will vote yes or no on his nominees . . . in batches.
Not all at once as he'd hoped.
Other problems he's facing include talks of a coup and, more recently, talk that a foreign government is eager to see him replaced.
ALSUMARIA reports Ayad Allawi is denying reports that during his visit with Frank Baker, the British ambassador to Iraq, the two discussed the need to replace Haider al-Abadi as prime minister.
That Allawi had to deny it says a great deal about just how believable the rumor is.
