6/25, SF: picketing Hillary Clinton

I scream at fascist who pickets Clinton;
yet I'm ***NOT*** one of Hillary's fans.
..............................................................
On my way to the San Francisco Public Library, June 25,
I walked by a theatre where Hillary Clinton is speaking .

Predictably, there was an anti-Hillary picketer.
Had he been a mere Republican, I might have ignored him.

But his sign said "Constitution Party".
So I screamed at him:
"FASCIST!"
He smiled broadly. I had made his day.

Then I got stupider.
I yelled
" George Wallace for President!
That's who you are."

He replied, "Check your facts."

Indeed. I had, in the heat of rage,
confused one fascist party with another.
Oooops.

From this incident, bystanders might guess
that I'm a fan of Hillary.

Nope.

I'd like to see a PROGRESSIVE woman be elected as President.
But I'm lukewarm about Clinton, the moderate centrist,
who started in politics as a teen "Goldwater girl".

I can easily think of a female Democrat whom I'd prefer.
But I won't name her, since an endorsement from me would have
negative effect, if any.
