Shrillary Cancels Appearance to Avoid Saracuda

Shrillary has met her match — or rather, is hiding to avoid meeting her:

Hillary Clinton has pulled out of an appearance at a New York rally next week to protest Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, her aides say because she doesn’t want to be seen alongside Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin in a “partisan” event.

Partisan event? It would be a bipartisan event if Shrillary had the courage to show up on the same stage as Saracuda — which admittedly would not be a wise move from an esthetic point of view.

Several American Jewish groups plan a major rally outside the United Nations on Sept. 22. Clinton had previously accepted the invitation to join, but her aides objected when they learned the Alaska governor will be part of the rally. Palin is also expected to meet with several foreign ministers during the U.N.’s opening General Assembly session.

Meanwhile, Cankles sulks and cowers, more concerned that Palin will upstage her than with Iran’s open quest to obtain the technology needed to wipe Israel off the map. Jewish Middle East expert Micah Halperin observes:

Jews traditionally vote Democratic, and if a major Democratic leader does not join in the fight against Iran, where are those voters going to go? It’s problematic from the very point of view that says you have a national political leader who fundamentally is choosing not to stand up against Ahmadinejad.

But the important thing for Clinton is to avoid direct comparisons with Palin.

Sorry Shrillary. You’re no Saracuda.
