Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton addressed the Center for American Progress at the liberal think tank’s 10th anniversary today, and even though she hasn’t formally declared her 2016 run for president, it would be wise to see every speech as a preview of the inevitable campaign.

That was just the parting zinger, though. Clinton had plenty more to say at #CAP10, and she managed to fit it in 10 minutes.

Get used to hearing “scorched earth,” “common ground” and “evidence-free zone” a lot between now and 2016.

    Her little joke makes no sense.

    • rssllue

      Neither does her thoughts on the benefits of progressive ideas, but the truth has NEVER stood in her way before.

    • Ken Alan Draper

      You expect a progressive to make sense?!?!?!?

  • waltermitty2012

    Tell us again how you dodged sniper fire in Kosovo.

  • HeavyMetalPolkaMonkey

    I just threw up in the back of my mouth a little….

    • Squirrel!

      Glad I’m not alone in that.

    • Kaya Hund

      My cankles don’t show in this outfit.

  • BoscoBolt

    Uh, yeah – that would be quite a sight … stupid old drunk.

    Here she is, in action …

      That was beautiful!

    • conservativechick

      OMG! Why have I never seen that? Imagine if that had been Bush? I was about to vomit myself if I saw one more clip of Bush Sr. getting sick in Japan! hahhaha Save this clip. We will need it soon. :)

      • Scorpion

        God, I hope we don’t.

    • Kaya Hund

      After the fall: Sounds like her latest “o” with Huma. OMG ! ! Now we know what the “o” in Obama stands for among his sycophant supporters.

    • desicon

      Yup she is drunk. The way she was holding the rails and legs wobbling clear indication of intoxication.

  • logicrules

    It would have to be a damned big cake….

    • arttie

      But she could eat all of it by herself.

      • CatHerder ✓fire! ✓fire!

        Only if nobody told Mooch there was free cake.

    • CatHerder ✓fire! ✓fire!

      If only they’d put her in it before baking.

    • Scorpion

      And a classic Dukakis moment to boot.

    • Ken Alan Draper

      and it would have to be a RUM cake.

  • lainer51

    Trying to imagine the size of that cake………………………………………

    Accomplished leader? What has she accomplished other than poor planning that lead to the scorched earth that was our compound in Benghazi? Defending her husband while he slept with everyone but her certainly makes her a modern day prog feminist but I wouldn’t recommend that course of action for any self respecting woman, no matter their ideology.

  • Billie Slash

    Hillary jumps out of the cake that Michelle “lets” us eat.
    Somebody pass the Pepto.

  • http://youhavetobethistalltogoonthisride.blogspot.com/ keyboard jockey

    Progressive ideas made this country? Socialism made this country great? What country is she referring to?

  • Perplexed

    If we were in the land of Oz, someone would have dropped a house on her by now! Sound too fantastical? Well compare it to the alternate reality the liberals have been living in for the past four years.

    “Hillary Clinton: CAP put health care on agenda”

    ‘Cause that worked out so well. Right, Sebelius?

    “Hillary Clinton, at #CAP10, bemoans politicians who prefer “scorched earth” to “common ground.””

    Yeah, I hate politicians (read:Democrats) that denounce those who disagree with them as racists, hostage-takers, anarchists, terrorists, etc.

    “Hillary: “We are careening from crisis to crisis instead of having a plan””

    ‘Cause when I need a plan, I go to the woman who condemned Chris Stevens to a horrific death.

  • Natalie Deisla

    She can re-wrap up failed policies in a different color paper, but we see right through it.

  • 3seven77

    “We are careening from crisis to crisis instead of having a plan”
    Hillary just described her entire career as Secretary of State.

  • Maxx

    When I think of a woman jumping out of a cake, I think of Erika Eleniak in Under Seige.

    Thank you Hillary for destroying a classic cinematic moment for most fellas. From this point forward, we might as well be thinking of the rabbit from The Twilight Zone.

  • TocksNedlog

    Cankle cake!

    • The Penguin, Don’t talk shit

      You know what? That piece of cake I keep bringing up that I’ve yet to get…never mind.

      • TocksNedlog

        C’mon, you know you want to git ya some!

        • The Penguin, Don’t talk shit

          Castration before that bro.

  • Al’s Sad Grampa ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

    Well, I will never again be able to eat any kind of cake.

  • Bruce

    Let’s just hope that she doesn’t sing “Happy Birthday, Mr. President” to Obama as she jumps out of the cake Talk about adding insult to injury (or, in this case, bleeding eardrums to scorched retinae)…

  • Markward

    Hillary Jumping out of cake… Ew. Pass on that mental pic.

  • deimos19

    judging by the size of her thighs, she meant to say she would be jumping into the cake face first.

  • KhadijahMuhammad

    I was ready to jump out of a cake?

    Dude. I really did NOT need that visual picture in my brain……

    • therantinggeek

      Me neither. Good thing I have plenty of mindbleach on hand…

      • KhadijahMuhammad

        There isn’t enough mindbleach in the world.

        • therantinggeek

          Good point…

        • Scorpion

          Especially if you can imagine what she would be wearing.

  • j p✓ʳᵉᶠʳᶦᵉᵈ

    Then when she gets elected she will have something to say, “let them eat….”

    hillary jumping out of cake=uncontrollable vomiting

  • kennyraisin

    No problem with the witch jumping out of a cake but only after it’s been dropped from an airplane at 10,000 feet.

  • spaceycakes

    . Wait, was it a cake for hippos to eat? They would have ignored her, but at least they wouldn’t have lost their appetites.

  • spaceycakes

    she couldn’t jump out of bed if someone yelled ‘breakfast is served!!’

  • Kaya Hund

    I bet the four dead in Benghazi also would not prefer scorched earth.

  • AZWarrior

    Too old to run, damn sure too old to be cake jumping.

  • chetnapier

    Please stay in the cake until you can figure out why benghazi matters

  • The Penguin, Don’t talk shit

    gross.

  • Suzyqpie

    The power of photo shop air brush is awesome. Air brush could be Hilliary’s BFF. Finest of all time political theatre will be watching Hillary distance herself from the domestic and international debris field that 0bama has created. While doing so, keeping the base in the bleachers and quiet.

  • socalcon

    “Hillary Clinton talks about challenge of building progressive group Center for American Progress.”~ Challenge arises from the fact that Progressives appeal to those that prefer things are done on their behalf, not results driven by the sweat of their brow.

  • Nate Whilk

    Obama to the House: “Pass my bill or Hillary will jump out of a cake!”
    House: “Anything but that! We’ll pass it!”

  • The Jackal

    Hillary, Just STFU!

  • Pat Arnold

    I wonder how many people are going to vote for Hillary because they feel sorry for her being cheated on by Bill. Hate to say it, but I think the number will be rather large

  • Ken Alan Draper

    Liberal think tank? that’s an oxymoron. it should be Liberal feel tank.

  • Kree13

    You ppl are delusional haters lmao if you didn’t get the joke then damn your dumb
