“I am a real person”, thus sayeth Lady Hillary once emerged from her cloistered seclusion in a latest bid at self-reinvention.
Someone needs to tell her to stop. Not in a mean or angry way. More like the way when a bunch of buddies are at a party drinking and they all know that one guy has had to much because he’s making his way to the roof to prove the science behind flight. In such a scenario it would be best if someone stepped in and told the guy to come down from the roof, play some Angry Birds on the old cell phone, and maybe have a cup of coffee or something. Someone in Hillary’s organization needs to tell her to stop if they truly want to see her continue as a viable candidate — and not as a sprawling wreck crashed down upon the earth from on high.
It’s not absence of Hillary’s reality that people dislike. Aside from the tin foil hat crowd, no one believes she is an alien, robot, or reptilian dweller from caverns located miles below Manhattan. Rather, it is her reality that people dislike.
After all, most people don’t head up one of the two largest and most important departments in the federal government. contravene it’s rules by having a staffer set up a personal email server to avoid oversight, and then blame the same department she headed up for letting her do it. And then have the nerve to snark about it and her snapchat account.
Most people don’t chill with the Kardashians, although a lot of people wouldn’t want to.
Most don’t jump in Scooby vans and then try and visit a rust belt Chipotle incognito. Most don’t bash Donald Trump for disrespecting women, raise high the mantle of feminism, and then take a breath and call on Bill Clinton to rescue her from it all. This would be the same Bill Clinton who’s reprehensible behavior in the Oval Office resulted in arguably the single-most significant instance of disrespect being shown a First Lady in all American history.
The reality that Hillary has shown voters thus far is that of desperation. She is in a literal sense the candidate that will say or do anything in an attempt to appease voters into supporting her. It wouldn’t be surprising to see her take a bong hit when she gets to Denver if she believes that it will bring support her way.
Only once has she slipped and shown her true self. Some months ago a Fox News reporter questioned her at one of her pseudo-media events. Briefly, just for a moment, a coldness came out. Bitter. She started to unleash a stinging rebuke until that say or do anything quality kicked back in and brought her back from herself. That’s the reality she doesn’t want voters to see. No wonder she’s so big on reinvention.
Her’s then isn’t a problem of appearing fake. Instead it’s who she is that is her liability — no matter how many times she insists “I’m real”.
