Hillary Clinton’s sniper tale is a good example of the postmodernist mindset at work: She constructed a narrative to advance her power agenda. This is legitimate, according to postmodernists, since the objectivity of truth is an illusion and, as her campaign aide put it, everyone’s perceptions are different.
My question to you is, what are some other outbreaks of the postmodernist mentality during this presidential campaign? You can draw from Mrs. Clinton, but also Barack Obama, John McCain, and any of the losing candidates from either party. (I’m thinking of doing an article on the subject, so I’m asking you to help me out.)
