One big list


Of all the terrible things Hillary Clinton has done!

I’m up here in New Hampshire watching her talk to a group of supporters, and I realized that I have been following this woman’s career for more than half my life. No, not just my adult life: the whole shebang. She came onto the national scene when I was a young man.

And for all that time, there has been a deafening chorus of critics telling me that she’s just the most wicked, evil, Machiavellian, nefarious individual in American history. She has “the soul of an East German border guard,” in the words of that nice Grover Norquist. She’s a “bitch,” in the words of that nice Newt Gingrich. She’s a “dragon lady.” She’s “Elena Ceaușescu.” She’s “the Lady Macbeth of Little Rock.”

Long before “Benghazi” and her email server, there was “Whitewater” and “the Rose Law Firm” and “Vince Foster.” For those of us following her, we were promised scandal after scandal after scandal. And if no actual evidence ever turned up, well, that just proved how deviously clever she was.

So today I’m performing a public service on behalf of all the voters. I went back and re-read all the criticisms and attacks and best-selling “exposes” leveled at Hillary Rodham Clinton over the past quarter century. And I’ve compiled a list of all her High Crimes and Misdemeanors.

  1. That picture is quite humorous.
    What isn’t so funny is that the sexism card has been played.

    Today: The Washington Post, “The sexist double-standard behind why millennials love Bernie Sanders,” The Stephanie Miller Show, etc.
    Let’s hope that the anti-Semitism card isn’t Trotsky’ed out next.
    We seem to be entering some very treacherous waters here what with Hillary being a woman and Bernie being Jewish.

  2. Denying that HRC isn’t the target of unremitting sexist attack is myopic. To claim that half the Democratic electorate prefers Sanders because they’re sexist is just as idiotic. I get it, close race and campaigns figure ‘gotta drive up those negatives.’ Doesn’t mean I buy into any of this shit.

  3. The article’s references to right-wing “talking” points is the giveaway here. No progressive/liberal/radical gives a shit about these points. Nor about her gender. What we give a shit about is her poor foregn policy record, her poor judgment in taking fees for “speaking” at Wall Street firms, and other dramatic lapses of judgment and arrogance. Articles like these do no one on the left (including you, Susie) any favors. They are irrelevant. Period.
