The Internet Sensation

SLAPHILLARY is back, brought to you by its creator Marie Poe, an award-winning filmmaker and animation producer of numerous hit shows, including MTV’s Beavis and Butthead. Not incidentally, she is also the lovely and brilliant wife of your faithful correspondent.

For those who missed it the first time around, SlapHillary is an interactive, online game enabling users to slap an animated image of Hillary, from the left or right, by pushing a button. It’s good, clean fun for the whole family — and educational too! Young folks will get a first-hand lesson in civics, by taking part in America’s grand tradition of political satire.

Why SlapHillary? Why Now?

Now seems the perfect time to revive SlapHillary. We at SlapHillary.org believe Hillary will do everything in her power to steal the spotlight from poor Barack Obama at the Democratic Convention in Denver (August 25-28, 2008). In this unique election year, Democrats and Republicans alike can enjoy slapping Hillary!

And don’t forget to check out some of our other animation classics, also restored from the old SlapHillary.com Web site. Popular games include Slap Bill, Slap Osama, and slap the Three Media Stooges.

SlapHillary: The Early Years

Marie Poe created and launched the humorous Web site SlapHillary.com on September 25, 2000. Released under the auspices of David Horowitz”s Center for the Study of Popular Culture (since renamed the David Horowitz Freedom Center), SlapHillary became an overnight sensation on the Internet, reaching its peak when anchorman Brit Hume of Fox News visited the site to administer an on-air slap to Hillary on national television on September 27, 2000.

The Economist named SlapHillary.com the number one Web site of the U.S. election season, in its October 7, 2000 issue.

Rumor has it that Hillary herself may have been forced to take note. She was then running against Rick Lazio for a Senate seat from New York. “The buzz among political Web surfers – and even those in Clinton headquarters – is a new Internet site, SlapHillary.com…,” reported The New York Post on September 29.

SlapHillary Depends on Your Donations

Due to circumstances beyond our control, we lost the SlapHillary.com domain name, which expired on May 22, 2005. SlapHillary lives on, though, at its new home: SlapHillary.org.

For seven years, SlapHillary was offline and unavailable (aside from a few illegal pirate versions which popped up here and there).

We want to make sure that SlapHillary never again goes offline. Visit SlapHillary.org now, and do consider making a donation!

    Politics on the level of the creator’s other gem, Beavis & Butthead, the show that benchmarked the dumbing down of animated series.

    You call images of physical attacks on people “good clean fun”? What kind of values are you guys pushing?

    And the items about Obama are pathetic attempts to insinuate that there is something dubious about him addressing Indian and other immigrants as ‘desi’, receiving money from his alma mater to help slum kids.

    I suppose we should be thankful you are so inept. This is the level the McCain team is at home with: stupidity, dishonesty and crassness.

    I gather you were never a fan of Popeye the Sailor or Bugs Bunny and Elmer Fudd. Or the Three Stooges, for that matter.

    Tommy Lorenz… It’s a CARTOON, knucklehead. You libs can’t stand it when your “heroes” take it on the chin. No pun intended… LOL!
