Bill Clinton's "victim" delusion – UPDATED

This report left me speechless:Bill Clinton voiced his abiding anger at the media's coverage of him and his wife in Durham, N.H., today, and suggested that media bias will force Clinton to go negative on Barack Obama. [...] "I think we can change it as long as you have access to information by people who are committed to judging everybody by the same set of rules and following the same set of rules," he said. "According to the most recent media analysis, that’s not what’s happened so far, but y … [Read more...]

Hillary, Obama and the Nat’l Psyche – Repost

Originally Posted December 22, 2006Hillary, Obama and the National PsycheI meant to link yesterday to an interesting piece by Dick Meyer over at CBS News, in which he muses on the emotional projections of the voters and wonders what it can mean for the Democrats. As ever, with Meyer, his stuff gets you thinking.I sense most voters who don't have books by Herbert Marcuse, Michael Moore and Al Franken on their shelves feel profoundly conflicted about choosing either Hillary or Barack to be … [Read more...]

Shameless Hill Shill on NBC

Lucianne highlights this video at her home page, and I think it's a pretty interesting one, for several reasons, first because the woman sitting next to Matt Lauer (I don't watch the show - who is that?) is all but wearing a "Vote for Hillary" button on her breast - there is a most unseemly gushing going on there that sets off all my antennae and makes me want to buy a pair of waders.The video is interesting, secondly, because at almost the same time Eric at Classical Values is noting … [Read more...]

Hillary: The Face of America?

I'm no fan of Maddy Albright's, but I think she's got every right to wonder how Hillary Clinton has the bald audacity - some might call it the unmitigated gall - to suggest that during her husband's presidency - she, Mrs. Clinton - was "face of the Administration on foreign affairs,"Mrs. Clinton didn't actually say that, not at first; one of her operatives, former Governor Tom Vilsack introduced the notion, apparently as a means to shore up Mrs. Clinton's assertion that being married to a … [Read more...]

Triangulating Blitzer: “Don’t pick on Hillary!

The press has spent years handling Hillary Clinton with kid gloves, and in doing so, they've created a bit of a media monster.Writing in The New Republic Michael Crowley relates that Mrs. Clinton has treated the press badly since the early 1990's (although Crowley does blame George W. Bush for that. Really.)"When there's a story they don't like, they seize on it and turn it back on the reporter, and make it about the reporter." (As First Lady, Hillary called for a public "frontal assault" … [Read more...]

Hillary Clinton sings Mama Rose!

hillary_clinton sings mama rose

Everytime I see this post of Fausta's, I always have to stop and look at the picture of Hillary, for a couple of reasons.The first is because she looks fantastic. She looks like an attractive, smart middle-aged woman, and those fists are re-assuring. No men are going to beat up on Hillary, that's for sure!But the other reason I love the picture is because with the lighting, that black background...she looks like she's playing Rose Hovick and a Vegas production of Gypsy, and she's doing … [Read more...]

Jonah has more debate questions for Hillary

Jonah Goldberg is offering debate moderators some fair and interesting questions they can ask Hillary Clinton, if they're not afraid of accusations of sexism, or of Hillary supporters suggesting that they be shot. I hope some of them (or some intrepid reporters out there, on the campaign trail) do gird up their loins and inquire:After the Philadelphia debate, your campaign tried to explain away your lackluster performance by implying your male competitors were unfairly “piling on” because you … [Read more...]

Mean reporters dared ask Poor Hillary real questions! – UPDATED

UPDATE:::Andrew Sullivan posts a devastating video from the Edwards campaign:::END UPDATEI wasn't going to "pile on" Poor Hillary Clinton about her crash-and-burn in the last Democrat debate. Everyone else was writing about it - which is what happens, when a candidate gives himself or herself away - so I didn't feel the need. I simply amused myself watching the video of her head bobbing, bobbing, bobbing in agreement with Tim Russert...until it stopped.But it seems Poor Hillary is feeling … [Read more...]

Bush, Clinton, Iraq, edumacation & shameless selfpromotion!

Apparently, Carnegie Mellon University did some sort of study which I don't understand at all, and which measured something else I don't get, and they compiled a list that we spouses of engineers can appreciate in the context of "efficient use of time." So here, thanks to Soccerdad, who explains it better than I can is a list of the top 100 blogs that are efficient uses of your time...or something. Your humble hostess is (surprisingly) included, at #25. Don Surber (#2 after the unsurprisingly … [Read more...]
