Hillary Clinton’s historics

From Derek Hunter at Townhall,

Hillary Clinton is the first nominee of a major political party to be under active criminal investigation by the FBI. Many may well have deserved it, but Hillary smashed right through that glass ceiling. Historic!

Hillary Clinton is the first nominee of a major political party to have led the fight to discredit and smear women her husband had affairs with, sexually harassed, and who accused him of rape. To borrow a line from Virginia Slims, “You’ve come a long way, baby.” Historic!

Hillary Clinton is the first nominee of a major political party to earn hundreds of millions of dollars under the guise of “public service.” Even adjusting for inflation and counting the days of blatant graft, Hillary likely has become wealthier than any other person ever through her ties to government work. Historic! (NOTE: This record runs risk of being broken when Barack Obama leaves office next year.)More.

Reality check: History profs whose opinion I respect say that if Hill wins, the United States is over. Remember when Nixon had to resign for so much less? Proposition: Americans vote for Hill because they prefer welfare to jobs. Discuss.

A mistake we sometimes make is to assume that people want their politicians to be honest. The world is full of failed states where, as long as the politician is using state force to attack someone other than us and our friends, it’s all just fine. The motorcades grow ever longer and the crowd still cheers.
