When it comes to conspiracy theories, the rightwing has definitely found its creative voice.  They have endowed Hillary Clinton with amazing superpowers, convincing themselves she can determine when her daughter gets pregnant, control Vanity Fair and Monica Lewinsky, cause errant shoes to fly at her so she can spout planned 'adlibs', and embolden a terrorist group in Nigeria.  And there are still over 2 years to go!  So here's a musicalization of these fictional conspiracies (but very real rightwing terror at having to run against her in 2016) . . . "Blame it on Hillary!"

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    Saint Ronnie was 8 months older than Hillary when he ran for Prez.  Scratch that complaint.

    Saint Ronnie had begun the long decline into Alzheimers when he was in office.  Scratch Karl Rove's fake concern.

    Saint Ronnie had NO foreign policy experience when he ran.
    Scratch that concern.

    Saint Ronnie was a divorced man when he ran.  Scratch that phony concern.

    Just the thought of Hillary running has tied them up in knots.  They're starting to make stuff up already, & she hasn't even announced.

      has caused so much angst to the right wing in these years of decision.  She's kept the spotlight off all other potential Democratic candidates and handed many of the Republicans shovels so they will just keep shoveling themselves deeper into holes that will make campaigning against anyone - Hillary or other Democrat, an exceedingly difficult proposition.  I think Hillary runs, but she's been helpful either way.

        She's not as far left as I am, but those kind of candidates don't have a chance in this political atmosphere.  We're more likely to vote for someone far right than far left.  

        She surrounds herself with capable people and she'll do fine.  I think she's quite capable herself.  Maybe someone younger as a running mate.

        The GOP will destroy anything they can't own.

    HRC stands between the GOP and the most conservative SCOTUS imaginable.

  •  Blessing a GOP quarter-century fear of Clintons (0+ / 0-)

    And what a remarkable era it has been!  Bill recently ranked by FORTUNE as the fifth greatest of all world leaders; Hillary towering above virtually any comer in the Democratic field for 2016; their daughter Chelsea awarded her doctorate at Oxford University, and now expecting the first of the next generation of Clintons.

    Hillary was vilified when First Lady of Arkansas; like her husband, even accused of murder and all manner of conspiracy the whole of the Clinton White House years.  

    The GOP spent megamillions of taxpayer dollars looking into every nook and cranny of Clinton dealings, and after a hell-bent-for-getting then President Clinton, a prosecutor named Ken Starr who would make Inspector Javert look docile, all the GOP could impeach Bill for was for having not come clean about consensual sex (not even intercourse--which to many a Southerner raised in the time of Bill Clinton, meant not having had sex at all--which is why, when Bill famously proclaimed that "he did not have sex with that woman," in his eyes--as Toni Morison pointed out--this really wasn't a lie after all).

    Thus did the GOP (and their Clinton-hating, spit-jealous, agents in the mass media) make shambles of the Constitution and attempt to cancel two presidential elections for really no reason other than the fact that Bill Clinton beat them to the White House.

    Throughout most of those years--in large measure because of the passage of the Clinton Budget Plan that no GOPer supported, and which to this very day the GOP and its media acolytes deny credit to, and due to Bill's successes in the Middle East, the Bosnia War, and the Northern Ireland Peace Pacts--there truly was peace and prosperity for a preponderance of Americans.  There has not been its equivalent "peace and prosperity" time since.

    Bill was supposed to be ashamed, and just go away.  So said the silly MSM, which took an addlepated actor named Ronald Reagan, who fostered an illegal war in Central America and whose wrongheaded economics would wreak havoc upon much more than just the national debt--and attempted to paste him up as a sort of FDR in reverse--Reagan (and not FDR) being the MSM's next candidate for a face on Mount Rushmore.

    But Bill refused to listen.  He really had no reason to be ashamed (no, not even the affairs and certainly not the consensual sex), inasmuch as his many judgmental detractors then and now had demonstrated lascivious behavior far worse.  One had to pity then Vice-President Al Gore, in accepting the MSM aversion to Bill Clinton, foolishly distanced himself from the Platinum Politician of Our Time, and thus not only (but only presumably) could not overcome the GOP machine in Florida, but could not carry his own state of Tennessee--which would have made it unnecessary to have prevailed in Florida.

    And still the GOP machine cranked out its anti-Clinton nonsense, while Bill crafted the Clinton Global Initiative and became, not just the best liked politician in the United States, but throughout the broader world.

    Hillary was accused of carpet-bagging her way into the New York Senate.  But she blew away her GOP opposition and won a landslide state election and landslide re-election.  She became one of the truly great Secretaries of State, on just barely missing becoming the first woman Democratic candidate for the Presidency.  Her Secretary of State record was flawless excepting for the Benghazi attack, which no serious investigative panel, much less journalist, could fault her for.

    And now, in the nearly forty years of the Bill and Hillary Clinton tandem on the political scene, and indeed after a quarter century as national and global figures, the GOP remains as petrified of them as ever.  They still believe that the long ago discredited Karl Rove and the GOP noise machine in Congress (with the lowest approval ratings on record) can somehow yet prevent the Clintons from returning to the White House.

    But the Platinum Politician knows them better than anyone else--and knows best how to leave them in the political dust.  His rapier wit dismissed the Karl Rove charge--how could the lady they accused of faking her illness now also be so debilitated that she is brain damaged?

    No, this won't work, not even among the more easily swayed hoi polloi.  It won't because every conceivable GOP candidate for 2016 is very visibly little more than a clown.  And it won't work because the GOP refuses to learn.  The more one throws at the Clintons, the better they do.  

    If you want to fight the Master Politician of the past fifty years (only the brilliant Barack Obama could just barely best Hillary--and that same President Obama chose Bill Clinton as the one to re-define his presidency and re-introduce him to the masses by way of Bill's spellbinding DNC address in September of 2012)--you need another Master politician.  

    The Democrats have Bill Clinton and Barack Obama, both of whom will be fighting for Hillary, should she decide to run in 2016.  The GOP currently has nobody--not even now an affected but affable former film star--really, nobody at all.

    It is tough enough fighting the Clintons when you have one with the talent of Barack Obama.  It is impossible to fight the Clintons when every conceivable candidate of your party is demonstrably a clown.

  •  Terrified... (0+ / 0-)

    like little boys wetting their short pants, and showing it with their adolescent 'Brainghazi' prattle.

    It's been a long, downhill slide for Karl since the days when he used to take a dump in paper bags, set them on fire on his elderly neighbors' stoops and play with himself in the bushes as they emerged to stomp out the flames.

    ... y'know, when he was at the top of his game.
