Hillary Clinton Channels April Ludgate

I know I am not the only person to have found Hillary Clinton's delivery of her Campaign Reset speech to have been weird. On social media I have seen her oddball cadences and peculiar emphesis labeled "wooden" or "stilted" and even robotic.But she wasn't robotic. I kept listening to her speak, and thinking, "what is this reminding me of?" And it eluded me, until -- distracted by real life -- I finally gave up thinking about it, but only until I saw this video out of the Rubio campaign, … [Read more...]

Hillary’s Press-Protection Pass Slowly Being Revoked

Pondering, in my last post, issues of silencing, and protective passes, I must admit is interesting -- actually fascinating and disturbing -- to watch the press as it starts signaling to the Silent Hillary Clinton that her protective pass is being revoked, and slowly pulled from her hands.The press is finally beginning to publish stories it has loyally kept aside until now, and the headlines are terrible for Hillary, for Bill, and even for the unliked Chelsea, whose boring mediocrity the … [Read more...]

So, Hillary votes “no” on Faith in Public Square, then?

So, it wasn't long ago -- April 13, actually -- that I watched the usual "Hillary is very religious" narrative begin again and asked whether that meant the churches had an ally in Hillary, against those voices who demand that faith be relegated to pews and homes, and put out of the public square:Since Mrs. Clinton is now “officially running” for president, and the press is making a quick note of how important both her faith and its applications for social justice are to her, I expect to hea … [Read more...]

Hillary on Top: Teetering, and not Due to Sexism

Once you’ve reached a pinnacle, you can’t keep whining that you’re only teetering because you’re a woman. You’re teetering because the pinnacle is slim, sharp and lonely, and you can only remain there if you belong there, or if you have one hell of a safety belt supporting you. Those that belong there make the pinnacle look easy, the rest impale themselves or fall. Or they loll about in the safety belt, and stagnate.I wrote that a long time ago, back when Katie Couric was complaining that her … [Read more...]

Will Bible-Carrying Hillary Address Churches & Public Square?

As soon as Hillary Clinton enters into a serious campaign mode -- and this has been true for her husband's campaigns as well as her own -- the citizenry becomes informed that Mrs. Clinton is a "staunch Methodist" and bible-believing Christian. It is always one of the very first cards she plays in her attempts to "connect" with the rubes and yahoos yearning masses whose causes she wants to champion, and whose votes usually factor in religion. I recall reading, during Bill Clinton's campaigns, … [Read more...]

This is how Hillary should always dress

Reading up in anticipation of Hillary Clinton's scheduled press conference (which has not happened, as I write this) I must say I really, really love the way she looks here, in this pant-suit, which I am cribbing from this headline:That looks terrific. Black is always a great color on her; she is not buttoned up to the chin; the necklace sits beautifully; the 3/4 sleeves give her a relaxed and softened look. The white contrasts in buttons, shell and pocketpiece are terrific. That's a … [Read more...]

Hillary, Stop Being Coy! Fight Sexism; It’s YOUR TIME!

While traveling yesterday I had a chance to catch up on my reading and discovered that Hillary Clinton is "thinking about" running for President.We love her when she is coy, don't we? I can't wait to see her new presidential posters. Remember this one, from 2008?2008 was a big year for Democrat candidates drawn with just a hint of totalitarian flavor. Hillary's rising sun was reminiscent of Chairman Mao, Obama's posters often ran more toward soviet propaganda.That was then, and … [Read more...]

Susan Rice is a Diversion from Obama’s own Words to UN – UPDATES

The mainstream media keeps wondering about UN Ambassador Susan Rice, and the fact that post-Benghazi she went on five Sunday Mornings shows, five days after the event, to say -- over and over again -- that the attack on our Libyan consulate and the death of four Americans, including Ambassador Christopher Stevens was all due to a video no one had ever heard of, is just odd.I mean, hey guys, almost ten days days after Rice's appearances (and five days after his administration was finally … [Read more...]

Obama meets with Biden, Clinton _ UPDATED

Apparently today President Obama met with his gaffe-stricken veep and his Secretary of State. A few wags have suggested recently that a put-upon Obama may "switch" these two -- putting Biden at State (John Kerry will be crushed, and our diplomatic relations may never be the same, anywhere) and Hillary Clinton on his ticket.Mrs. Clinton would certainly be a better debater against Paul Ryan than Biden.Lots of opinion out there. Some think Hillary won't do it -- that she and Bill Clinton … [Read more...]

Ration me? Hey, Ration U2! – UPDATED

Regular readers know I am a big U2 fan. I've even slipped U2 songs into previous Advent posts.But if the phonies in Cancun are going to start talking about rationing the lives of others in order to save Gaia, they're going to have to start looking at other excesses they can eliminate, first. That's my Tuesday column: Rationing Bono & Other Gaia-Saving IdeasCuriously, no one at these conferences ever suggests that less-draconian measures, affecting a relative minority of human beings, … [Read more...]
