Hillary Clinton crying is so funny! Especially on your birthday...

Monday night I strolled into the Starbucks/B&N at the DePaul Center in downtown Chicago, and on my way to buy some cupcakes for a meeting (sue me, I forgot to stop at a real bakery) I spotted a greeting card. Yes this one.

Are you kidding me?

Of course I had to stop and find out what occasion would a crying (note drawn in tears) Hillary Clinton be appropriate for? Your birthday, idiot!

[Click image to enlarge, or just note the important detail below.]

And if you can't read the inside of the card it says:

"It's your birthday and everyone's a little CHOKED UP about it."

You really gotta love that one incident, where a woman who has a reputation as a ball-buster and seems to make Maggie Thatcher warm & cuddly gets choked up, now stamps her as a cry baby. 35 years of working on women's rights and this is what she gets.

Forgive me for not flipping the card over and seeing who makes this card so we can flip them off.
