There's no point in hiding my forbidden love anymore

Wow. Via Tammy Bruce is this amazingly hagiographic report about Senator Hillary Clinton’s activities during the recent hostage crisis. It’s entertaining ready for those who have a sufficient layer of cynical insulation from reality. In one of the few marks of good writing, the lead really does set the tone for the rest of the article:

When the hostages had been released and their alleged captor arrested, a regal-looking Hillary Rodham Clinton strolled out of her Washington home, the picture of calm in the face of crisis.

The accompanying picture makes this double funny, with HRC speaking “regally” and “calmly” with 4 or 5 police officers directly behind her, 500 miles away from the now successfully resolved incident. Not to brag too much, but I think I might manage some “calm” in that situation as well.

The article goes on to detail her interference and nagging of the people with actual responsiblity. Clearly some leadership there, as everyone knows nothing perks up a person under intense pressure in a crisis like a phone call from some one irrelevant to the situation but so puffed up on self importance that she must BE INVOLVED. Because nothing can come to a good end if she’s not. The money quote there is

Along with taking charge while giving the professionals free rein […]

Next she’ll be increasing government benefits while lowering government spending. It’s just the kind of thing you do when you’re that regal looking.

Hillary was booed in Iowa. Never thought I’d ever type those words in that order.

I can’t wait until she pulls a “Pat[ricia] Schroeder.” She was a former congress critter from Colorado who wanted to be president a while back, but she had to give up her dream when someone said something unkind to her. The picture of her crying on her big, rich husband’s shoulder at a news conference, caused generations of women yet unborn to cringe.

I suspect HRC is much more likely to lash out in a cruel and hostile way than cry on her husband’s shoulder, but one can hope it will just as politically devastating. I doubt it though — HRC’s supporters have long since stoppped caring about anything HRC or her husband actually does. It’s another example of the cult of personality that’s consumed the MAL.
