Supercoddling Clinton

From Brent Bozell at Townhall:

But the Clinton-coddling prize goes to NPR reporter Tamara Keith, who uncorked this beauty: “Last night when you took stage in Sacramento, there was a woman standing next to me who was absolutely sobbing. And, she said, ‘You know, it’s time. It’s past time.’ You see the women, you see people here. And people just come up to you and they get tears in their eyes. Do you feel the weight of what this means for people?”

The only real question here is whether Keith was describing herself. That wasn’t a journalist’s question. It was a fan girl’s question. Clinton gave a boilerplate response about how special it is to give girls the knowledge that they, too, could be president someday.

The reporters asked no questions about scandals; they asked no questions about policy. They only chatted with Clinton about the horse race and her sobbing superfans.More.

Reality check: Classic Third World. The politician is the embodiment of the hopes and dreams of people who have no chance themselves.

One of the things that classically distinguished North America from south of the Rio Grande was that, in general, our politics was not like this. A politician was just a politician. A bureaucrat was just a bureaucrat. A police chief was just a functionary; maybe supervising a small army of unfunny clowns, who knows? But they did not matter much to us because they could not ruin our lives very easily. It made sense to pay a bit to keep them all at a distance. Pierre Trudeau changed all that, much for the worse.

The United States is about one election away from just being over.

  • That was sickening. I mean that reporter’s sycophantic question.

    • tom_billesley

      I don’t recall such sentiment about the first woman PM of the UK. Odd that.

    • john700

      Even Jack Tapper called it like that.

    • Justin St.Denis

      Arselickers and Fartcatchers make me vomit, regardless of where I encounter them, I notice that they genuinely dislike it when you call them out on their arselicking and fartcatching.

  • Ron MacDonald

    “The United States is about one election away from just being over.” As is Canada.

    • FivePointSpurgeon

      As WAS Canada. The next 12 years of Queen Selfie’s reign should fix any lasting hopes that this ever was a free nation.

      Great time to be Christian, though. Nothing builds God’s people’s numbers more than the very imminent persecution.

        But Shiny Pony could meet with a fatal disease/accident well before his mandate expires. Many genuine Christians point this out. And I treasure the possibility, though Istop shirt at praying for it. But give it time….

      I would say that the US is already the greatest banana republic in the world.

    …Hill not one to coddle

    “The book claims she
    repeatedly screamed obscenities at her husband, Secret Service personnel and
    White House staffers — all of whom lived in terror of her next tirade.”

      Such a horrible, horrible witch.

    The next big election for the Dem’s will be a Black-women for prez and then a trans-prez , Hispanic prez, illegal Prez and so on . It stopped being about what’s good for the USA and the people when Obama was an empty suit marxist that got groomed to be the President in 2008 where the Dem’s could use the Race Card if anyone questioned this treasonous weasels destruction of the USA.

    The man went to Japan and apologized for the USA defeating Japan in WW2 in late 1945 , Obama had the nerve to claim that everyone in Japan’s 14 year crusade for global domination by Imperial Troops was a victim plus those killed from 2 bombs that ended the War which save almost 6 million more lives if the War went on.

    Hillary goes on about the women President but why must it be a White women of privilege ?
    Oh that’s right, they are the party of slavery and the KKK where Obama was a useful-idiot Brown house negro to win the 2008 election .

      and Barry vacations at Martha’s Vineyard..all the rich white people

      • Justin St.Denis

        I vacationed there once. Got to meet and know Carly Simon a bit. Very nice. But you’re right. MV is like a superrich creamy white vanilla pudding dessert.
