Hillary told voters on Face the Nation Sunday that she, like Carly Fiorina, Ben Carson, and Donald Trump, was a political outsider.
It was as if Donald Trump made a claim to being poor.
“I’m a real person,” Clinton bragged, while pouting about never being accepted as a mainstream politician – forgetting her eight years as a first lady, eight years as a NY senator, and four years as Secretary of State. Apparently, none of those are supposed to count. She IS a Clinton after all.
In lieu of her years as a beltway insider, Clinton offered qualifications that will undoubtedly excite normal people everywhere – she can talk about the Kardashians. Also, sometimes she goes shopping.
Hillary’s claims finally explain her inability to tell the difference between government and personal e-mail accounts, and her confusion about the term ‘classified.’ Her ‘normal person’ status comes as a relief to conservatives, who have long insisted that their representatives go shopping, talk about the Kardashians, and not be corrupt.
Well, two out of three ain’t bad.
A mass e-mail to Clinton’s supporters further polished her image as an average Jodie by using the term ‘wonky,’ a word that middle America uses so often it’s difficult to count. Curiously absent were the terms ‘integrity,’ ‘honesty,’ ‘oath,’ ‘2ndAmendment,’ ‘Constitution,’ and ‘truth.’
Hillary’s camouflage has as much credibility as Ben Carson claiming that he doesn’t know what it’s like to work in a hospital and save lives, or Fiorina claiming that she doesn’t know anything about running a successful business. Will Democrat voters fall for it?
