I usually don’t cut and paste from other writers, but Camilia Page from Salon.com expresses thoughts I’ve been unable to.
She sees the contempt for people coming from the Billary that I do.
The first nice bite:
Hillary’s willingness to tolerate Bill’s compulsive philandering is a function of her general contempt for men. She distrusts them and feels morally superior to them.
Following the pattern of her long-suffering mother, she thinks it is her mission to endure every insult and personal degradation for a higher cause — which, unlike her self-sacrificing mother, she identifies with her near-messianic personal ambition.
And her response to the Gloria Steinem b.s. that showed up in the New York Times earlier this week:
Hillary’s disdain for masculinity fits right into the classic feminazi package, which is why Hillary acts on Gloria Steinem like catnip. Steinem’s fawning, gaseous New York Times op-ed about her pal Hillary this week speaks volumes about the snobby clubbiness and reactionary sentimentality of the fossilized feminist establishment, which has blessedly fallen off the cultural map in the 21st century.
History will judge Steinem and company very severely for their ethically obtuse indifference to the stream of working-class women and female subordinates whom Bill Clinton sexually harassed and abused, enabled by look-the-other-way and trash-the-victims Hillary.
Right and I’m supposed to want to vote for Hillary Clinton, because she’s what? A woman? What a crock-of….
Tell it! Tell it! Camilia Page puts on the smack-down:
The Clintons live to campaign. It’s what holds them together and gives them a glowing sense of meaning and value. Their actual political accomplishments are fairly slight.
The obsessive need to keep campaigning may mean a president Hillary would go right on spewing the bitterly partisan rhetoric that has already paralyzed Washington. Even if Hillary could be elected (which I’m skeptical about), how in tarnation could she ever govern?
Seriously, hasn’t anyone had enough of Bush-Clinton-Clinton-Bush-Bush yet? Let’s turn the page people.
And the truth about Hillary Clinton‘s political “experience”:
But Hillary herself, with her thin, spotty record, tangled psychological baggage, and maundering blowhard of a husband, is also a mighty big roll of the dice. She is a brittle, relentless manipulator with few stable core values who shuffles through useful personalities like a card shark (“Cue the tears!”).
Forget all her little gold crosses: Hillary’s real god is political expediency. Do Americans truly want this hard-bitten Machiavellian back in the White House? Day one will just be more of the same.
Vote, people, for anyone. But not these people. Let’s not kid ourselves, Hillary is running for a third Bill Clinton term. Ugh.
