Shrew-d Politics: #Hillary2016
In celebration of the launch of the Rodham 2016 campaign for Caesar-In-Chief, Mark Steyn is, all this week, republishing some of his best articles written during the years of the First Triumvirate*, when Hillaria Cankleius Sorex Sulla was but a Censor and Pontiff.
However, he’s also surrounding those old columns with some newly-minted remarks, such as this one, where he asks the kind of questions the fellating lap-dog Tribunes don’t dare pose [as they pose, gaily, as respectable reporters]:
She’s fought children and families all her career.
Indeed. Is “children” a reference to the Peter Pan of Pantsdownland, Little Boy Bill? Is “families” a reference to twin nymphettes he brought home after a ride on the Lolita Express with billionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein?
Or maybe she just likes slugging any neighborhood urchin minded to lay a hand on her own kid’s threads? As part of the campaign launch, Chelsea Clinton discussed the need for “equal opportunity” in the pages of, er, Elle….
The Utter Shameless Ones have returneth!
Please do take the time to read the three already posted…
–I’m Jimmying Cartier’s and I’m Running for President [the one quoted above]:
As Barack Obama told Hillary last time round, “You’re likeable enough.” (Now there’s a guy who knows how to fight families.) Yesterday’s launch suggests that Mrs Clinton is going to be testing that proposition to the limits over the next 18 months.
But time and again the Clintons have survived setbacks that would have clobbered lesser politicians. And the more one reads between the unreadable lines of [Hillary’s book: Living History] the more one begins to wonder if using gregarious Bill as the advance man for chilly Hilly’s own ambitions wasn’t all part of the plan. I can see her running, and I can see her narrowly winning. History repeats itself: first, trouser-dropping farce; then, pantsuited zombie horror.
Mrs Clinton continues her tour of her future subjects, in which selected pre-screened “everyday Americans” are graciously permitted into the van to commune with the ultimate non-everyday American. The effusions of the US media’s court eunuchs over Mrs Clinton’s ability to pass as an “everyday American” and actually visit a Chipotle suggest this is going to be a very long 18 months.
…and keep checking back over at Mark’s joint for more fun and horror.
‘After America’, indeed.
