I felt a great disturbance in The Force; as if hundreds of FOX staffers cried out in mass orgasm, and then suddenly silence. #Hillary2016

I won’t vote for Hillary because If she becomes president she might get hormonal and accidentally nuke a continent #Hillary2016

Wow I really can't wait to spend the next 2 years hearing about what a feminist icon and champion of women's rights Hillary Clinton is.

Someone needs to remind Hillary that #TheMasters is on, and that no one cares that she's running for President.

My hopes are that people will vote for Hillary because they think she'd be a good president, not just because she's a woman.

Note to GOP candidates: you will never out-pander Hillary on the pro-sodomy issue. Advise you to support natural marriage.
