Denny’s Zinger: The Selling of a President and Why Hillary Will Lose
Many years ago, I wrote The Fingered City, about how the Mafia ran a candidate for mayor of New York City.
In 1969, to research the novel, I joined the Republican-Liberal primary campaign as an advance man for Fioravante (Fred) Perrotta, Mayor John Lindsay's choice for City Controller. For two and a half months, every evening after work I rode the length and breadth of New York City—from the top of the Bronx to the Bowery and Brooklyn; from Staten Island to Far Rockaway, Queens.
My job: jump out of the car at every stop and find Freddie the men's room and a pay telephone, followed by dinner with Freddie and other campaign operatives to unwind and strategize.
I adore politics—especially the mechanics of getting someone elected.
Hillary Clinton's Grotesque Official Campaign Photograph
When I received a recent email from ReadyForHillary.com, I decided to look into the campaign store to see what tchotchkes were for sale.
The official campaign portrait would gag a maggot.
Here's a black and white photo of Hillary in huge dark glasses with a sourpuss expression, scrutinizing the cellphone that got her into such recent doo-doo.
Takeaways to Consider
- ReadyForHillary.com is being run by a bunch of kids who don't know squat about the promise of a better tomorrow or projecting a positive image of their candidate.
- "God protect us from amateurs." —Henry Castor
