Political Clarification

"Political Clarification" . . . sounds like an oxymoron, eh?

I just want to be clear that though I was picking on Hillary...

1.  it's NOT because I'm conservative, and
2. I have a secret crush on her.

I'd be more likely to vote for someone like Ralph Nader, who calls Hillary a menace (here):
“People have got to start thinking, doing their homework, become informed voters and not coronet another corporatist and militarist."

"Coronet"? That's not a verb, so far as I can tell. Shouldn't this be "coronate"?

Anyway, I like the association with royalty: it worries me that we are creating dynasties. Though this is just a small part of everything else that worries me about politics--the billions of dollars spent and the rigid alliances.

__________Aha! I was barking up the wrong tree, meme-wise: I found no cylon Clintons or Bushes, but plenty Game of Thrones references. This one from an LA Times article.

[ Ha! "barking up the wrong tree, meme-wise"]

Perfect! Of course it would be Game of Thrones.

Put a coronet upon? As in Kind Hearts and Coronets?

BIN: I was going to ask you about this, since you watch GOT...

ZHOEN: Yes, "to crown", I assume, and not "to murder off the seven (seven?) relatives that stand in the way of your rightful place on the throne."

I love those old Alec Guisness movies. Lavender Hill Mob!
