Roger Stone to Hillary Clinton: ‘C U Next Tuesday!’ If it took you two glances at the image to the left to realize what it’s meant to look like, you’ve already donated a few seconds of your time to the cause of right-wing attack dog Roger Stone. He’s the guy who is accused of making nasty phone calls to Eliot Spitzer’s dad (remember how we punctured his alibi?). He’s also been affiliated with dirty tricks for decades, from Nixon’s Committee to Reelect the President (yes, that CREEP) to some maybe shady dealings with Roy Cohn and a couple of mobsters. Anyway, this time around, his efforts are pretty straightforward. The image you see here is the symbol for his new group, Citizens United Not Timid. CUNT, for short. Straightforward enough for you? “It’s a simple joke,” Roger Stone told The Weekly Standard. “It’s not War and Peace.
The truth is, we sat around for hours trying to come up with words for BITCH and just couldn’t do it.” The sole purpose of Stone’s new group is to sell T-shirts with the above symbol from a Website. “The more people buy the T-shirts, the more people wear the T-shirts,” he says. “The more people wear the T-shirts, the more people are educated.” Hmm. And people complain that in this election, nobody’s talking enough about education.
