Cheap Seats doesn’t often yield to others to sum up the deficits of certain overhyped and underperfoming people, but in the case of the ProgLuddites’ favorite mascot, Hillary Clinton, Camille Paglia has a solid point.
“It remains baffling how anyone would think that Hillary Clinton is our party’s best chance. She has more sooty baggage than a 90-car freight train. And what exactly has she ever accomplished — beyond bullishly covering for her philandering husband?” Paglia writes, according to Salon.org.
And Paglia is, to recall the words of Lt, Col. Frank Slade in, well, “Scent of a Woman,” “just getting started.”
Ambassador Christopher Stevens’ death is a “very big deal,” Paglia said, adding that Clinton played it for a political score.
“In saying ‘I take responsibility’ for it as Secretary of State, Hillary should have resigned immediately. The weak response by the Obama administration to that tragedy has given a huge opening to Republicans in the next presidential election. The impression has been amply given that Benghazi was treated as a public relations matter to massage rather than as the major and outrageous attack on the U.S. that it was,” Paglia said.
Cheap Seats is inclined to think that Paglia is giving Clinton too much credit, but she’s on to something.
“As far as I’m concerned, Hillary disqualified herself for the presidency in that fist-pounding moment at a congressional hearing when she said, ‘What difference does it make what we knew and when we knew it, Senator?’”
Well, if that’s clear to Paglia, maybe other ProgLuddites are figuring out the Hillary scam. Maybe not.
