“An Insult to Monsters Everywhere!”

Obama Advisor Resigns over Remark about Clinton

Samantha Power, believed to be one of the chief foreign policy advisors to the Presidential campaign of Senator Barack Obama (D-IL), resigned from the campaign today after it was revealed that she referred to Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-NY) as a “monster.” The group Helping All Monsters Attain Sympathy (HAMAS), an international advocacy organization for monsters, sent out a press release saying that Powers’ remarks “were an insult to monsters everywhere. We at HAMAS know what it’s like to be monsters, and we are especially disappointed that this came from the Obama campaign, which we had valued as our friend.”

The Clinton campaign did not have an immediate reaction. However, the Senator’s husband, former President Bill Clinton, started to say that “maybe Powers should have been more specific, like refer to Hillary as a ‘ball-busting monster’ or something like that . . .” Unfortunately, the phone connection went dead quite abruptly after former President Clinton uttered that phrase.

The message to the Obama to remove Powers was relayed by Congressman James Moran (D-VA-8). Moran is well-known for his monstrous behavior, particularly to women and minorities. In addition, many believe that Moran holds views very dear to those of HAMAS.
