It’s well-known that the S.S. Hillary press cruise lists to port, and that fact makes predicting their next move childishly easy.
Here’s a fun game. Two stacked headlines appear in The Hill the morning.
Which one will the media report as “fact”? And where does that lead us on the other story?
If you’re like me, you’d just be waiting for the catchwords “witch hunt” to appear in the press.
And, like magic, here they are, right on cue!
MSNBC (“lean forward”, but only when forward points left) reported,
Republicans, of course, are nowhere near satisfied. But that’s inevitable, say Clinton allies, some of whom lived through the grueling 1990s congressional investigations of the Clinton White House. And more the GOP cranks up the legal pressure, the more controversy starts to resemble a partisan witch hunt, say Clinton allies.
Friend, if you’re reading this, you already know that Hillary Clinton is unfit for the presidency. I don’t have to tell you why. Even her supporters struggle to come up with new ways to present her, because she comes off as your bitter spinster aunt whose house smells like a combination of old newspapers, cat litter, and Bengay.
Her latest makeover? “Don’t you someday want to see a woman president?” She said that at the Emily’s List gala, a who’s-who of abortion anytime, anywhere, for anyone fanatics. That in itself (taking one penny from these death merchants) disqualifies her.
But really? The “woman president” schtick is old and worn. I’d love to see a woman president who cares about life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Hillary’s ship sails to the land of death, taxes, and dependency. Enough said.
With the GOP “witch hunt” theme now officially kicked off, where does it go? MSNBC ponders:
A story that began with a headline in The New York Times declaring Clinton may have broken the law has now evolved into one about an effort by Republicans to pressure Clinton to turn over her personal emails. “Now it’s not The New York Times versus Hillary Clinton, it’s [mc_name name=’Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC)’ chamber=’house’ mcid=’G000566′ ] and [mc_name name=’Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT)’ chamber=’house’ mcid=’C001076′ ] versus Hillary Clinton, and that’s more comfortable ground,” said another well-informed Clinton ally of the two Republican lawmakers leading the charge to get Clinton turn over a private email server she used as secretary of state.
But in the absence of new reporting and fresh revelations, it’s unclear how long the story can continue to sustain itself. If Clinton spoke about it again, it would only feed oxygen to a smoldering fire, the thinking of those close to her goes.
This story will become just like Fast & Furious, Benghazi, IRSgate, Obama’s amnesty order, the FCC’s takeover of the Internet, and every other power grab, scandal, and misuse of authority perpetrated by this administration since Obama flubbed his oath of office in 2009.
Hillary Clinton will likely win the Democrat nomination for president in 2016. The Dems don’t have any other choices—at least not enough to raise the cash horde they will need in the upcoming election year. They will have to sail on the good ship Hillary, bloated, barnacle-crusted, and timber-rotted as she is.
And Hillary’s message to America is the same as the one she deftly communicated at her U.N. press conference: “Go to Hell.”
So the story about Hillary’s private email server will turn into a Republican witch hunt story. But we don’t have to hunt for her, because she’s been found.
