“Let Them Eat Astroturf!” Madame Hillary loudly proclaimed.
Hillary Rodham Clinton has cornered the market on Digital AstroTurf. No, I haven’t fallen for another fake post at The Daily Currant. It appears Hillary Clinton really has purchased tens of thousands of Fakebook Likes from a click farm. And then there are Hillary’s Twitter followers…
Although Hillary Clinton boasts a robust 3.6 million Twitter followers, not even a vast right-wing conspiracy would be able to interact with 2 million of them. According to two popular online measuring tools, no more than 44 per cent of her Twitter fan base consists of real people who are active in using the social media platform. And at least 15 per cent – more than 544,000 – are completely fake. StatusPeople.com, the oldest publicly available Twitter-auditing tool, reports that 44 per cent of the former secretary of state’s followers are ‘good’; 15 per cent are ‘fake’; and 41 per cent are ‘inactive,’ meaning that they never tweet or reply to any tweets..
So as the phony campaign from Hades orders the chauffeur to drive The Scooby Van to a real life, actual gas station for a photo-op, people already grow tired of the game. The phoniness is glaring. Even when she isn’t doing things that range from bad to blatantly illegal, Hillary gives off a stiff, unauthentic vibe without even thinking about it. She fakes it. It’s what she does. There’s not even any glamour left to it.
The fakeness as a lifestyle reminds me almost of RooshV. She’s gotten defective the way he could be seen as defective. When RooshV relates to a woman his modus operando is approach, seduce, bang and ditch. When Hillary approaches reality her modus operando is cheat, lie, cover-up the lie and move on.
Why, you may ask? There is no why. Why does the black snake eat the cricket? It couldn’t tell you any more than RooshV could tell you why he’s probably slept with several hundred women. There is no why anymore to Hillary’s lying. She clearly doesn’t want to be President. She thinks she has to and it’s what she does. Perhaps the biggest reason we have to stop her isn’t even ideological or policy wonkish. We just can’t afford to have a phony on the job. That should be one of our whys even if she is never able to find one of hers.
