BlogWar Shocker ( Part II): Woody Concedes Dirk Gently's Points

Over on Dirk Gently's charming and idiosyncratic "Albatross" Dirk and madamab both assert the oiligarchs are willing to eschew their usual and expected election-thievery this cycle, and rely instead (as they did in 2006? I have made that assertion myself on occasion) on relinquishing a modicum of power to a selected, trusted avatar, to be elected from the Democratic Party.
The current front-runner and imho likely choice is Mrs. C., of course.

In my gracious concession speech, reproduced below, I acknowledged the superiority of their analysis to my own, which is that the oiligarchs may not feel sufficiently in control of circumstances to take a chance on relinquishing the Executive. Hence, if they trust, say, Mrs. C. as their surrogate, wouldn't it follow that here we have irrebuttable evidence of the claims by Chomsky, Nader, and others as to the synonymy of the Parties' interests? I am glad they pursued that logic to the conclusion i missed. Good on 'em.
It would be shrewed, no doubt (or your tinfoil's wrapped tighter than mine--quick, check!):
Hillary as a both the sacrificial lamb and the scapegoat.
not two, but three birds: escape responsibility for the crash to come, blame the Dims, and demonstrate once and for all the essential weakness of 'women/fems', their insutability for "real" responsibility...
yeah, thad'd by quite a coup...
and there's no doubt the oligarchs/elites are capable of
man, that's too damn likely to be true...spookily...
and i been called paranoid...

S/he would have to be trusted NOT to use her power to pursue justice for the crimes of the previous regime, for example.
